Amma's 2016 UK Visit

Tues 11 & Wed 12 October

The dates for our beloved Amma's next visit to London have been set as Tuesday 11 and Wednesday 12 October, with the second day being Devi Bhava and going into Thursday morning. The venue will be Alexandra Palace once again. As you will all be aware, the setting up and running of Amma's programme is all done by volunteers (that's all of us!), so please start to think about the seva (selfless service) you may be able to offer towards making it happen.

Two Wonderful Days in Amma's Embrace 2015

Once again thousands of people came to Alexandra Palace to receive Amma's blessings earlier in November. Dressed in a beautiful pink and golden sari, Amma sat throughout the night on Wednesday and Devi Bhava came to an end with Amma showering her children with flower petals to the resounding refrain of Amma Amma Taye shortly after 9am.

Hour after hour, she sat welcoming and embracing the devotees with her unwavering love and compassion, wiping away tears and laughing and joking. What a privilege it is to experience the divine nectar of Amma's presence.

Amma was welcomed to London by Baroness Verma, member of the House of Lords, and Shekhar Kapur, film director. They also helped to launch the latest ashram publication, a collection of Amma's sayings by Bri Dipamrita.

We hope you managed to make it to Alexandra Palace and we would like to thank everyone who worked so hard to make the visit such a success. Whether you chopped veg for an hour or washed up or helped in the darshan line, your dedication and hard work are really appreciated for, without you, the programme could not happen. So many people worked tirelessly not just during the programme but before and afterwards as well.

Meeting Amma

Amma meets each person; embracing, comforting, consoling and uplifting thousands of people day after day. Amma’s love is unconditional, regardless of belief, or reason for coming. Many come to hear her speak, hear her unique devotional singing or simply be in her presence. See About Amma page for more information.

Please note: No video, photos or recording of any kind are allowed in the venue.
