India's "Hugging Saint" has returned to Southern California. Her name is Amma. For years, she's become known as a devotee of Hinduism who heals and inspires people of all faiths.

Amma's "hugging tours", like the one at the Radisson Hotel LAX, have attracted millions worldwide. She's currently on a summer visit to the U.S.

Her main mission is assisting the poor and victims of disasters, like Hurricane Katrina.

She'll have two more programs Tuesday at the Radisson.
