30 April 2006 — Amritapuri
Amma left the Ashram early this morning for New York, America. Amma will deliver an address at the Interfaith Center of New York (ICNY) on intra-religious understanding and collaboration, especially in relation to her experiences in the wake of the 2004 Asian tsunami.
ICNY is a secular non-profit educational organization with the goal of creating understanding and respect among different religious groups. It was founded by the Very Reverend James Parks Morton shortly after his retirement from the post of Dean of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, the Seat of the Episcopal Diocese of New York, in 1997. Reverend Morton has been ICNY’s president ever since.
Amma will deliver the speech on May 2nd at the Rubin Museum of Art in Manhattan.
