Individual Blessings/Saraswati Diksha – (Free Public Program)
Friday, May 18, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Individual Blessings are offered on a first come, first served basis. Please be prepared to relax for some time in the charged atmosphere of the hall. Due to the large number of people attending this program, individuals arriving after 2:30 pm are not guaranteed an Individual Blessing with Amma.
Saraswati Mantra Diksha is available for students, ages 4-24. Those who wish to receive Diksha should come fully bathed or showered (with head and hair washed) and dressed in modest, white attire. Saraswati Diksha is offered periodically throughout the day, as groups of students coalesce.
While Individual Blessings are free, there is a nominal suggested donation for Saraswati Mantra Diksha.

Based on the success of last year’s retreats, Amma has graciously offered to continue having one-day retreats as part of her 2018 Tour. They are being offered so that more people can take advantage of this precious time with Amma in a retreat setting without disrupting their busy schedules. The retreats will provide an invaluable opportunity for devotees to deepen their meditation practice and to listen to the inspirational wisdom of Amma’s divine discourses.
