Friday, April 26, 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. (Please note: Each person may only receive one individual blessing per yearly tour. First time attendees who have never received an individual blessing from Amma before will be given priority in the group)..

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.

Homa Sacred Fire Ceremony – (Free Public Program)

Sunday, April 28, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Homa is the most ancient and sacred ceremony in the Vedic tradition of Sanatana Dharma. It is a fire in which forms of the Divine are invoked through the power of mantra and profound spiritual intention. Special offerings are cast into the fire while Sanskrit mantras are chanted, and the combined energy of the fire, offerings, and mantras generates powerful spiritual vibrations that bless and purify everyone present, spreading peace and healing through the world.

  • Please wear clean, modest attire that covers the knees and shoulders
  • Bring a pillow or blanket if you plan on sitting on the ground. Chairs are also provided
  • Please turn all beepers and cell phones off or to blink/vibrate mode so that others are not disturbed
  • Please do not take photos without special permission beforehand. Video and audio-taping are not permitted
