Sitting near Amma saw another amazing baby interaction. New York Abeyada comes to sit for meditation on stage during Amma’s darshan holding her one and a half year old baby Lalita.

This afternoon, while on stage, there was a bit of commotion near Amma.   The photographer and videographer were nudging for a clear view of two young children who were coming up for darshan.  As I was near the chair, I managed to get a close look at the scene.    The boy and girl were adorable, […]
