Satsang (Every Sunday from 8.00 - 10.00 am)

Amma says, ” Satsang — being in the presence of a great soul, reading spiritual books, and listening to spiritual discourses—is very important. These activities will help develop your power of discrimination and bring you peace. Personal effort is also necessary.”

All are welcome to attend our Sunday Satsangs

The pivotal point of our spiritual activities are the regular Sunday satsangs. Satsang forms the core of the Society’s activities and has been held every Sunday from 8am to 10am. 

Satsang is an opportunity for Amma’s children to come together for group prayers including Amma’s Ashtothram and Archana, Bhajans (Devotional singing), Meditation and fellowship. The Satsang also on request, includes helpline prayers (special prayers for individuals and families undergoing hardship) and the screening of Amritavarsham, an Amrita TV programme featuring short discourses by AMMA and Swami Amritaswarupananda Puri. The Sri Lalitha Sahasranamavali is collectively chanted on the first Sunday of every month.

On weekdays and Saturdays, the centre is open for puja between 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM.

Amma’s Kitchen and the Satsang sponsors join together to provide Prasad and breakfast. Donations received during breakfast sessions are used to support the charitable “Serve A Meal” project for the less fortunate.

 

A variety of spiritual events and pujas are conducted at Amrita Centre through the year …
