During Amma Sri Karunamayi’s time in many cities, a day has been set aside for Individual Blessings. In Los Angeles, we have set aside two days: Thursday March 21, and Friday March 22. All Individual Blessing Programs are free and open to all. This is a very special opportunity for everyone to share a one-on-one meeting with Amma and convey any specific questions or blessing requests to her.
Individual Blessings are a chance for families to come before Amma to receive her gift of profound love and spiritual energy. Amma considers all of creation as her own family, and all beings as her very own children. This divine motherly love inspires Amma to give of herself one-on-one, and to tune in directly to the specific needs and requests her children bring her.
For many people the Individual Blessing is an encounter with the Divine in the form of a human being – a saint, a teacher, a spirutal guide, a loving mother. Great peace and inner silence comes easily in the presence of our beloved Amma.
One-on-one with Amma, a special timeless moment unfolds, filled with spiritual grace. Each person is given a card to bring up to Amma upon which they may write their private requests and concerns, which she reads and responds to. Each person is given a card to bring up to Amma upon which they can write their private requests and concerns.
Amma often hands blessed objects charged with spiritual energy to her children, and these sacred items may be used in one’s personal meditation. Amma also enjoys the presence of babies, and the opportunity to share in motherly affection.
Amma gives each person a very sacred mantra, known as the Healing Mantra, which can be used to heal physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects. This, in addition to her undivided attention, flowing with compassionate energy, is a great blessing.
General Guidelines for Individual Blessings
We kindly request that you wear white when attending the Individual Blessing Program. This is very beneficial for maintaining a pure and positive atmosphere. White is a unique color which repels all negative vibrations and attracts only positive vibrations.
Individual blessings will be received on a first-come, first-served basis. A brief orientation will be given to answer any questions.
Please be aware that due to the large number of people who come for blessings, you may need to wait several hours for your blessing. We hope you will enjoy this rare opportunity to sit peacefully in Amma’s presence and absorb the healing vibrations of her divine energy.
Due to time constraints, each person may have only one individual blessing per Tour year. If you see Amma in more than one city this year, please do not request a second individual blessing, although you are welcome to sit in the hall during the program. Thank you for your kind understanding.
Individual Blessings are offered on a first come, first served basis. It’s good to arrive at least 1 hour early. Please be prepared to relax for some time in the charged atmosphere of the hall. Due to the large number of people attending this program, individuals arriving after 2:30 pm are not guaranteed an Individual Blessing with Amma.
(Please note: Each person may only receive one individual blessing per yearly tour. First time attendees who have never received an individual blessing from Amma before will be given priority in the group)..
Saraswati Mantra Diksha is available for students, ages 4-24. Those who wish to receive Diksha should come fully bathed or showered (with head and hair washed) and dressed in modest, white attire. Saraswati Diksha is offered periodically throughout the day, as groups of students coalesce.
While Individual Blessings are free, there is a nominal suggested donation for Saraswati Mantra Diksha.
