2. Of My Amma
This Song's Story
Of My Amma was born during a long, hot, bumpy bus ride on Amma's 2002 South Indian Tour. Stretched out luxuriously in the isle of the bus at foot level, the verses just popped into their heads. The original song has several more verses. At the next lunch stop, a bunch of people got together and rehearsed, hoping to be able to sing to Amma, but that stop, in the midday heat was unfruitful; Holy Mother Amma was taking a much-needed rest after her program which had ended early morning. After a few more hours in the bus, Amma met with everyone for tea in a field. With a group of game tourmates, the song was first sung to Her. Back at Amritapuri, with the help of Yovanny Adant and Abby (two very talented, fun, guitar players) the tune was worked into what you hear on this album. Over the course of four more years, singing the song to Amma with groups of children and youth visiting Amritapuri from all over the world, the song was pruned and polished to the tune and lyrics it is today.
