Bharata Yatra 2004
4 March 2004 — New Mumbai, Maharashtra
After a large program in Prabhadevi Mumbai that lasted until 9:00 a.m., Amma came to Her ashram in Nehrul, New Mumbai. Upon Her arrival, Amma walked through the large group of devotees who were still busy preparing the ashram for the two-day Brahmasthanam Festival that would begin the next day.
Amma first asked Her children if they all had food and had slept since the end of the darshan, to which there was a resounding reply of “yes!” Amma then took Her time going to Her room, walking to the left, and then to the right, stopping to talk to a devotee here, pinching the cheeks of a little one there. It was a nice surprise for the Mumbai devotees who had been working so hard to prepare for Amma’s arrival.
