Evening Discourse – (Free Public Program)

Thursday, June 20, 7 p.m. – 9 p.m.

We cordially invite you to join Amma for an evening of divine knowledge in Cleveland, OH. The talk is free and open to the public for all to attend. Participants will be spiritually nourished by Amma’s serene presence, silent meditations, discourses and spiritual chanting.

Amma often gives her divine discourse after a brief period of meditation for world peace. The subjects include the spiritual and philosophical, as well as practical advice on developing inner purity, compassion, and how to live one’s spiritual life dedicated to serving society. Darshan takes place at the conclusion of the program, and is a special time to receive the personal touch and blessings from Amma. This healing touch purifies the mind and heart, and awakens the cosmic energy within us.

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.
