When Amritanandamayi lauches her "new" Facebook page, she must ask her countless followers to come and visit the page. Is it just to create traffic data in the online statistics? Anyway her Facebook page has been promoted on all websites worldwide, the centers have posted the information on their Facebook pages, emails have been sent to prompt the followers to browse, click, share and like.

Less than 10,000 Likes in more than a week. 10,000 is a lot. The Amritasatyamayi Team would surely be unable to gather such an audience. But let's remember that Amritanandamayi has been touring the globe for 30 years! She is said to have hugged 30 millions of people. She is famous for giving darshan which is a vision of God. She is said to have dozens of centers worldwide. She is advertised as a spiritual leader showing the path to humanity. She is considered as a living goddess, an embodiment of the Divine Mother. The newspapers pretend that all politicians, businessmen, scientists and artists flock to bow at her holy feet. Given all that she is said to be, we consider 10,000 to be a pretty low figure. Let's make a quick calculation. 30 millions people hugged? 50 thousands Likes? What do we get?
0.17% of the people that she hugged Liked her Facebook page in 5 years!
Not even 1%
Indeed, her "devotees" come when she gives darshan. They forget her as soon as she leaves. Do they really come to see a spiritual master or do they run from gatherings to gatherings, only looking for the thrill of the crowd? She has begged for e-love. What has she sowed to thus reap e-crumbles?
