Horrible — of course I’m glad that Mata Amritanandamayi* is OK. She reminds me of the holy-fool kind of saint** (though of course she’s not a literal saint as in ‘canonised Christian hero(ine)’).

*No, I can’t pronounce it unless I try very slowly!

**And a bit of Leo Buscaglia, or at least his public image: he was a pop-psych star back in the ’70s.
