Amma’s annual visit to Dallas, Texas took place on the 27 and 28th of June. Thousands came to experience Amma’s darshan and to imbibe her spiritual wisdom. Among those who welcomed Amma were prolific artist, writer and social activist, Mary Ann Thompson- Frenk. Throughout the programs, devotees put on a number of cultural performances in honour of Amma. Amma’s youth group, Amrita Yuva Dharmadhara, brought saplings for Amma to bless as part of their reforestation project. One group of devotees performed original gospel music inspired by Amma and her life of compassionate service.
