Few days ago, students from the Amritavidyalayam, Karwar school visited Amritapuri. They enjoyed getting Amma’s darshan, participated in seva and had the chance to attend satsangs. Their visit coincided on Tuesday, so they got their special lunch prasad from Amma’s hands. With care, she also called them to come sit close to her after the […]

Today afternoon, during Amma’s darshan, Sri Preman of Kottayam presented the story of Amma’s life through a traditional Harikatha performance.

2 April 2014, Amritapuri Since Thursday evening Bhakti’s mood is changed.
