Yesterday, Amma left Amritapuri for Her brief tour of Kalpetta, Mysore and Bangalore. This is the 12th time Amma has visited the district of Wayanad, where Kalpetta is located. Amma has a charitable hospital for tribals in Kalpetta. She arrived in the mountain-top town at 7:00 this morning.
When Amma left Amritapuri, a long line of villagers joined the students and ashramites in order to seek Her blessing as She left. As She pulled away, the villagers told Amma to come back soon. As Amma drove by them, She placed Her hands on the glass window of Her camper and the devotees and ashramites all did the same.
Among the people seeing Amma off was a Buddhist monk from Sri Lanka. He had come to seek Amma’s blessings.
