Evening Discourse – (Free Public Program)
Friday, April 19, 6 p.m. – 8 p.m.
We cordially invite you to join Amma for an evening of divine knowledge in Dallas, TX. 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.
