NEW Safety Procedures at Amma's Program
Large Bag Check: This year guests will be asked to leave their large bags and backpacks at the Bag Check Station before entering the Program Hall. Families and people carrying medical necessities will be allowed to enter the hall with their bags/strollers, once a physical bag check has been conducted.
We encourage you to leave your large bags and backpacks in your car or hotel room.
Small Bag Check: Before entering the darshan line to receive Amma’s embrace, everyone will be asked to check their cell phones, purses, etc. located near a table, at the beginning of the darshan line. You will receive a number to retrieve your items after your darshan. Please be sure to bring printed photos to Amma for blessings, since you won’t have your cell phones with you.
Home-made garlands and food will not be allowed. Guests can go to the Flower Table and leave gifts for Amma. Your gift will be taken to Amma’s Room after darshan. Your gifts can be exchanged for something from the Flower Table for free.
