Three Wonderful Days in Amma's EmbraceOctober 2013
Once again thousands of people came to Alexandra Palace to receive Amma's blessings. Dressed in a deep red 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 8am. 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 Lord Andrew Stone, screenwriter Mr Manish Pandey (BAFTA award-winning film 'Senna') and Ms Taylor Thomson who all spoke warmly of their personal experiences of meeting Amma. They also helped to launch the latest ashram publication "Colour of the Rainbow: Compassionate Leadership" by Swami Amritaswarupananda.
A highlight which particularly entertained the crowd was the BBC's Children in Need mascot Pudsey bear making a star appearance and receiving darshan from Amma, who was also highly amused. Later that evening an interview with Amma was featured on the BBC One Show.
Several accomplished musicians played for Amma, including the acclaimed Justin Manville who wrote of his experience in the following words: "The anticipation starts to build from the moment you enter her space, Captured by a radiation of love and calmness. You're drawn closer and closer until suspended in another place by her touch, In familiar and warm stranger 'Amma'!"
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. For photos and report, visit the Amritapuri website.
