“If we have been able to give happiness to a soul – even for a minute, it makes our life blessed.” Amma, (Mata Amritanandamayi Devi) – the ‘Hugging Saint’
A hug from a parent, friend, partner, child, etc. is one of the most magical touching gestures, that has perhaps often been taken for granted. Hugging may not be appreciated as much as it ought to, because it has become one of the many automatic gestures we perform, without perhaps really knowing its true value. Although it may leave us feeling warm and cosy afterwards…. do we really know what is in a hug?
