Waves of Love and Harmony to Touch Singapore’s Shores Again
Hugging Amma will commemorate 31st anniversary of her international travels here
“We are all beads strung together on the same thread of love,” says Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi, or “Amma” as she is fondly addressed the world over. The powerful love, harmony and selfless service that form the crux of the life and teachings of this exemplary humanitarian, visionary and global spiritual leader, will be experienced with
Amma’s three-day Programme in Singapore between March 26th and 28th at the Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre.
During the three-day free public event organised by Amriteswari Society Singapore, Amma will conduct spiritual discourses (that will be translated from Malayalam into English), meditation sessions, devotional singing and darshan (embrace).
The event will open on March 26th with a rousing welcome for Amma through song, dance and the rhythmic striking of traditional dandiya/kolattam sticks by over 60 members of Amriteswari Society. For the members, ranging from the ages of 18 to 80, who come together in this joyous celebration, each strike of the sticks in hand reaffirms their love and gratitude for their spiritual teacher, as well as their commitment towards imbibing and practising her globally revered and life-transforming teachings.
The release of the 2018 Souvenir Book – “Krishnaamritam” on the second day of the Programme will formally mark the 31st year of Amma’s international journeys that began with Singapore in 1987. The Book highlights Amma’s life, work and teachings through illuminating articles as well as a special section on aspects of Amma’s impact in Singapore.
Additionally, close to 50 young students from a Government Secondary School will receive the Society’s Amrita Bursary. In a powerful moment that underscores Amma’s message of interfaith harmony, members of the Inter-Religious Organisation of Singapore will unite on stage on 27th March in a silent prayer for world peace and harmony.
It is to receive Amma’s motherly embrace, and to be touched by her love and compassion that tens of thousands of people throng to Amma’s Programme in Singapore each year.
Amma has embraced and comforted more than 37 million people the world over, inviting them to get involved in the process of rebuilding a concerned and caring global community. Constantly striving to ensure that conscious and concerted effort is made the world over to alleviate suffering in its countless forms, Amma’s key areas of focus are food, shelter, healthcare, education, livelihood, environmental conservation and sustainability.
For over three decades now, members of Amriteswari Society have worked together in a spirit of meticulous collaboration to nurture the event in Singapore that has grown consistently from an attendance of about a thousand people in 1987, into one that attracts close to 40,000 people each year – of diverse age, religious and ethnic groups.
