Amma Sri Karunamayi Visits Ojai, CA - 2020

 

Amma Sri Karunamayi in Ojai, CA

Jai Karunamayi

Regretfully, this year’s North America tour has been postponed amid growing concerns about the international corona virus outbreaks.

After close consultation with Her Holiness Amma Sri Karunamayi, the Board Members of SMVA Trust, and city organizers we have made the decision to postpone this year’s tour until further notice.

Having spent the past months preparing for the tour with our city organizers, crew, and tour partners, we are genuinely upset and disappointed not to be able to host Amma on her 2020 Tour.

Amma fully intends to continue the tour later in the spring and we will be working with Her Holiness, Board Members and city organizers to finalize the details and will share more information about tour plans in the coming weeks.

IMPORTANT: If you have already registered and paid for a retreat program, we will be processing full refunds to all the participants. Please allow up to 14 days for us to complete your refund.

We appreciate your understanding.

Evening Divine Discourse & Darshan – (Free Public Program)

Monday, April 6, 6 p.m. – 8 p.m.
We cordially invite you to join Amma for an evening of divine knowledge in Ojai, CA. 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.

Based on the success of last year’s retreats, Amma has graciously offered to continue having one-day retreats as part of her 2020 Tour. They are being offered so that more people can take advantage of this precious time with Amma in a retreat setting without disrupting their busy schedules. The retreats will provide an invaluable opportunity for devotees to deepen their meditation practice and to listen to the inspirational wisdom of Amma’s divine discourses.
