You no longer have to travel to India to be enlightened by the spiritual people who come from there. In fact, you don’t need to look further than the Javits Center in New York City. From July 9-11, 2012 the Amma Tour comes to town featuring the well-known spiritual guide Amma (Mother) who has become known by this name as a result of her affectionate care and compassion.
Over the course of her three days at the Javits Center, Amma will hold morning and evening programs as well as a program called Devi Bhava on July 11th. The morning and evening programs feature meditation and the chance to be embraced by Amma. Amma is world renowned for her embrace which has been described as “powerful”, “comforting” and “profound”.
The Devi Bhava program features a ritual called Atma Puja which is a ceremony for World Peace, after which people once again have a chance to embrace this amazing woman and also receive a mantra (Sanskrit words used in prayer and meditation) from Amma herself.
An extensive assortment of promotional books and music are available for purchase during the program at the Amma Shop. Selections include collections of talks given by Amma, writings by her senior disciples and music performed by Amma. Other items range from handmade goods from Indian villages to specially blended essential oils.
All proceeds support Amma’s international charitable organization Embracing the World, which focuses on education, disaster relief, fighting hunger, empowering women and many other great humanitarian causes. Embracing the World has been a major contributor to disaster relief work in India, Japan, Haiti and the United States.
Don’t miss your chance to take part in this rare spiritual ceremony and help those who are less fortunate at the same time.
