Guru Purnima is the most important time of the year for receiving the blessings of holy people. Blessings received during this time are equal to the blessings received during the entire rest of the year. According to India’s venerable rishis, cosmic energy flows through the human body, entering through the crown chakra and leaving through the feet. This is the reason why so much importance is given to the holy lotus feet of God, one’s teacher, or any holy person. The spiritual teacher becomes a channel for tremendous cosmic energy, which is available to all through their lotus feet. Thus, honoring one’s teacher at this time of year is most auspicious. Cosmic energy flows from the spiritual teacher’s feet in abundance. Amma has touched the lives of countless people in her incarnation, leaving devotees overflowing with bliss and tremendous gratitude. You are cordially invited to join us in our celebration of appreciation to our beloved Amma.
Amma understands the many distractions and difficulties we sometimes face when we try to meditate. Accordingly, she has designed the retreats in a special way. As Amma says, “Silence is the language of God.” In this way, we receive the maximum spiritual benefit from the meditations, divine discourses, and chanting. As Amma teaches, it is only when we look within through meditation that we find the true presence of Divine Mother deep within our inner hearts.
Chakra Cleansing Techniques
During the retreat Amma will teach Chakra Cleansing practices previously only available to those who could travel to her ashram in India. Out of intense spiritual compassion, she is now bringing these powerful Chakra Cleansing practices to the United States.
Shaktipath, Divine Radiance Transmission
Amma will once again be giving Shaktipath transmision during this retreat. Amma will place her hand on each participant’s head during meditation and transmit her divine radiance.
Shaktipath is an extremely powerful spiritual gift to receive from Amma. It will help one’s spiritual progress with an added boost, to awaken the Kundalini Shakti, which is the presence of the Divine Mother in the form of profound inner spiritual energy.
