9780964362925: Getting to Joy: A Western Householder's Spiritual Journey with Amma (Mata Amritanandamayi)

In Getting to Joy, Karuna, a Seattle psychotherapist, shares a candid account of her first nine years with her spiritual teacher, Mata Amritanandamayi (also known as Ammachi), a saint from South India. The story is a unique and fascinating view of how the mystery of Divinity can be accessed through the Guru-Disciple relationship. The first edition of the book describes Karuna's early experiences with Ammachi (1989-1993). In this second edition, Karuna continues her narration, sharing the stories that occurred between 1989 and 1998.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

The day of Ammachi's program arrived. I had clients scheduled throughout the day and into the early evening, so was unable to be present when the program began. I walked into a room already packed with people and found a seat against the back wall. Immediately a very strange thing happened. I have always had mild curvature of the spine and I tend to sit fairly hunchbacked, probably as much from habit as necessity. As I sat down on the floor, cross-legged, my back spontaneously straightened until I was sitting as straight and tall as it was possible for me to sit. Needless to say, I was quite shocked!
