Nov 20 -25, San Ramon, California – America Yatra 2011
After departing Europe, Amma flew over 5000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean to Her ashram situated in the rolling hills of San Ramon, California for a week long program.
Thousands of devotees braved the rain showers and the cold weather to come and receive Amma’s blessings. Hollywood actor Kurt Russell made his way to Amma’s ashram. He too, was eager to find out what was drawing such large crowds on one of the biggest American holidays, Thanksgiving.
In addition, Leland H. Hartwell, winner of the Nobel Prize in Medicine, came to discover the true peace that one feels while being in Amma’s arms. He said, ” It was very nice to meet Amma because I have heard so much about her and have seen the result of her work. It was a great honor to spend so much time with her.”
Amma served a Thanksgiving dinner to all her children present on Thursday night, leaving the devotees filled with happiness and gratitude.
