Public Program events.

We are truly delighted to have Amma’s physical presence in the N. America again this year. She will be visiting ten cities starting from the Pacific Northwest and traveling through the Midwest to the East Coast, ending in Canada this summer. There will be free public programs in eleven cities (Seattle, San Ramon, Los Angeles, Albuquerque, Dallas, Chicago, New York, Washington D.C., Boston, Toronto) and six retreats.

On most public program days, there are two programs each day i.e. during the day (at 10:00 am) and the evening (at 7:30 pm). During these programs all are welcome to come and meet Amma and receive her darshan. Darshan means receiving a blessing in the form of a compassionate hug from Amma. Devi Bhava programs (ceremony in celebration of the Divine Mother) occur once in most cities on the last day of the program during the evening (at 7:00 pm). Please find more details below.

Numbered tokens for entering the darshan line to meet Amma are distributed one hour before each program, with priority given to those meeting Amma for the first time.Please Note: Due to time constraints token availability may be limited.
