Fr. Arul Maria Arokiasamy "AMA" Samy, S.J.

Fr. AMA Samy, S.J.
The place was a little Israel (i.e. full of young Isrealis who were fresh out of the army and having their fun in India), and we decided not to stay but head on down to the Bodhi Zendo at Perumalmalai, 12 klms from Kodai. 
Patrick Campbell had mentioned this place back in Mamallapuram and Satya also had heard of it. It is a garden retreat in the middle of a coffee plantation and forest run by AMA Samy, an Indian Jesuit Priest Zen Master. 
There is place there for about 30 people and most are German as AMA had spent a lot of time in Germany. It was one of the many “bubbles” we found on the trip – places where foreigners get to experience something very ‘other’ than India in India. “Bubble” was the apt term Carolina came up with to describe this.
