Guide to Spiritual Discourse & Darshan
Each city welcomes Amma in a unique and special way by hosting the spiritual discourse and darshan program. It is also Amma’s way of greeting the community and celebrating the loving bonds she has developed with people in so many communities across the United States and throughout the world. Often held in churches, temples, and other public facilities, this program is a wonderful introduction to Amma, her divine presence, and profound spiritual wisdom.
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.
