18-20 October- Paris
During her world tours, Amma is always greeted by full halls of people, but year after year Paris traditionally attracts some of the biggest crowds. This year was no different as massive crowds filled the Parc de Expositions in Pontoise for the three days of programs.
On the first evening Amma was welcomed to France by Jean-Christophe Bas who is Senior Advisor Strategic Development and Partnerships at the United Nations secretariat of the Alliance of Civilizations.
After giving a marathon program on the last day in Paris, Amma spent the day at the French Ashram near the village of Pontgoin. She spent time speaking and joking with all the local devotees, shared a prasad lunch, sang bhajans and danced. Before leaving, Amma spent sometime visiting the ashram gardens and then continued on to London for the next stop on the tour.
