New Year’s Day Dance for Amma!

Namaste Beautiful Satsang Family,

For the past several years villagers from Tamil Ladu have come to Amma’s Birthday and danced to mesmerizing Baduga music and enchanted everyone. When Amma gives darshan in their home region they dance for her for hours on end - even up to 8 or 10 hours at a stretch.
 
Meera from the Redmond Satsang and I were on the stage at Amma’s Birthday this year when they danced! We were captivated by the music and dancers as was Amma. Several times she stopped darshan and watched them. She even raised her arms and joined them once or twice. Throughout her fall Europe and North American Tours she played this music and danced and even showed the film clip of the Birthday dance.
 
Meera and I decided that night on the stage that we would learn this dance and share it.
 
So, this New Year’s Day Meera is going to teach us this dance and we are going to dance our hearts out! The dance steps are quite simple, the true center of this dance is the heart so don’t worry if you think you are left footed. And for those of you that have secretly wished for a moving meditation this is your chance to learn one!

Amma has said that this meditation acts on a very subtle level--eradicating all our negative tendencies, slowly but surely, and gives obvious practical results very fast. She has assured us that if we practice IAM regularly we will see all aspects of our lives improve.
