Saturday, July 14, 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 that each person may only receive one individual blessing per yearly tour).
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.
A complimentary vegetarian meal will be served.
