Introduction to Amma Sri Karunamayi's Charities in Rural India  

Guru Purnima Weekend Meditation Retreat

Dallas, Texas
July 11 - 13, 2014


You are invited to join Amma for a very special meditation retreat in Dallas, Texas prior to the Guru Purnima celebration. This will provide an opportunity to set aside your day-to-day concerns, forgo ordinary conversations by maintaining silence, and dive deep into the ocean of the Self within - all in Amma's divine presence.

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.

Crowne Plaza® Hotel (Downtown Dallas)

1015 Elm Street,

Dallas, TX 75202
