AMMA'S 2015 BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION
SILENT AUCTION OPEN FOR BIDDING NOW!

Amma Auction
Dear Friends,
In honor of our beloved Amma's 62nd Birthday, MA Centers are currently offering very special AMMA items for silent auction. Several of these items have been donated by Amma; many are from Her recent 2015 North American Tour and some additional items have been donated by Amma's loving devotees. The auction is online and bidding is now open. Proceeds from this online auction will benefit Amma's Local and International Humanitarian Service Projects, collectively known as "Embracing the World".
 
Web auctions in the past have contributed to many of Amma's humanitarian projects across the globe, including Amrita Kuteeram (Amma's housing project), Disaster Relief efforts, and the Farmer Relief Project. The annual auctions have built houses in India for the poor, contributed to 2013 Typhoon Haiyan relief funds in Philippines, 2011 Japan earthquake and tsunami relief funds, 2010 Haiti earthquake disaster relief efforts, 2005 Hurricane Katrina relief funds in US, and supported both phases of the Tsunami relief efforts. More recently Mata Amritanandamayi Math (MAM) announced two massive charitable projects: a 50-crore relief-and-rehabilitation project in the flood-ravaged state of Uttarakhand (North India) and Amrita Swasraya Gramam a programme to adopt 101 villages throughout India insuring a proper home for each villager along with social, educational, medical and community services for the adopted villages so that they may become self reliant and thrive as a community.
 
Please visit www.embracingtheworld.com to learn more about Amma's various local and international charitable projects. This year's highlighted items from the very special Online Auction celebrating Amma's 62nd Birthday include:
 
Amma's Amritapuri Room Lamp. This stunning brass peacock lamp is Amma's personal lamp that She has used in Her room at Amritapuri for many years.
 
Amma's Devi Bhava Foot Cushion. This beautiful white brocade covered cushion provided a soft resting place for Amma's lotus feet during every Devi Bhava program on the North American Tour for many years. When you look closely you will see imprints of where Amma's lotus feet rested.
 
Amma's Amritapuri Room Glider. This glider with thick flowered cushions gave Amma much enjoyment for many years as She gazed out of Her room at the Ashram and upper lotus pond. ONE ONLY!
 
Amma's Pada Puja Rug. Lovely fringed rug of ivory, beige, rust and burgundy colors in a spiraling floral design. This rug has been the softness under Amma's lotus feet for each morning and evening Pada Puja ceremony in 2013 and 2015 during the five days of the Southern California Tour.
 
Siddha Mala. One through fourteen faced rudrakshas. Guari Shanka and Ganesha rudraksha on gold wire with with chikna rudrakrshas framing the back of the neck. This mala that Amma has worn is considered to be one of the most powerful malas of all.
 
Amma's Earrings. 22k gold filled bead and Amritapuri Prasad rudraksha earings worn by Amma for one year.
 
Amma's Vatican Bangle. Gorgeous pink jade bangle with ornate gold caps. Pink jade is noted for many beneficial qualities. Amma wore this bracelet during Her visit to the Vatican in July 2015.
 
The online auction ends on Saturday, October 3rd at 8:15pm (PST). Live event bidding in Los Angeles will be available at the MAC LA Birthday Celebration event on Saturday, October 3rd from 2pm to 8:15pm (PST).

MA PNW Down Payment

PNW M.A.Center
Namaste PNW Satsangs!
 
How blessed we are to now have such an amazingly beautiful Amma place. Jai Ma! Recently I received an email from a devottee who had pledged to donate towards the down payment of the new Amma Ashram. She was wondering if she should donate that now? YES, that was a long time ago, six years, that we were soliciting pledges for the eventual Down Payment. If you did pledge at that time (or would like to now) that would be awesome! Now is the time to send in that donation!
