Satsang Events Christmas Play


Seattle Mother's Kitchen


 
Every 2nd Sunday from 9:30-12:00 Amma's Devotees look forward to serving the poor of Seattle! We meet at the Lutheran Compass Center at 9:30 am. The Compass Center, which is a shelter for homeless men is located in downtown Seattle.
 
We begin with a prayer for peace. We try to send love to all the people who are struggling. Then we cook breakfast to the glorious angelic sound of Mother's Bhajans. We cook for the 50-75 men that live in the shelter, but we also cook for the men and women living outside.
 
At 10:00 half of our group loads up the food, gets in our cars and goes up to an outdoor feeding site under the freeway to serve. When we get there, there is a long line of hungry people waiting for us.
 
The half of our group that stays at the Compass Center serves breakfast to the men who are staying in the shelter.
 
What do we cook? Healthy mantra filled wholewheat pancakes, handcut organic potatoes (sometimes grown by devottees), veggie infused scrambled eggs. We also serve fresh fruit, usually bananas, and coffee as well as hot chocolate. Many of the men ask for a mocha which we are more than happy to serve.
 
We do bring food, but we most try to bring is a smile, a conversation, a recognition that we are all one!
 
In Amma's Loving embrace

2015 Amritapuri Christmas Play DVD

Christmas Play
 
This year, you will be able to purchase the 2015 Amritapuri Christmas play DVD. The production was called, “Blessed Art Thou,” and is in the tradition of a Broadway musical, meaning there is lots of singing and dancing. Proceeds of the DVD sale will go to the future MA Center- PNW in Maltby.
 
This play was about what Jesus might have been like when he was growing up, as well as what it might have been like to be his parents, siblings or friends. It also contained scenes about John the Baptist and about the 40 days and nights Jesus was tempted by Satan. While Jesus is known as a peacemaker, he also challenged the traditional religious teachings, so that area was addressed as well.
 
At one point in the play, Joseph told his children the story of David and Goliath. Goliath was a puppet that was 12 feet high!
 
Below are soundtracks for two of the songs. Sabbath Dinner takes place in Mary and Joseph’s home. It contains a Hebrew song that is traditionally sung in Jewish households. In Each and Every Night, Mary is singing about how much she yearns for the adult Jesus to return home.
 

 

 
The cost of the DVD will be $10 U.S. ($14 CAN) plus shipping. To avoid shipping charges, you can pick up copies at Redmond satsang or at the PNW Retreat in Canada. Please contact Karuna karunap108@comcast.net if you want to purchase a copy.
