Portland Tree Planting
Tree Loving Sevites
On Saturday, October 12, for the third year in a row, Amma's Portland Satsang partnered with Friends of Trees and joined in a volunteer effort to get 880 trees, shrubs, and wildflowers in the ground in just 2 and 1/2 hours! Sevites spent the morning planting along the beautiful Tualatin River Greenway which runs through Brown's Ferry Park, which is located on the banks of the Tualatin River. Satsang members also helped spread 3 cubic yards of mulch to support the tree babies during the future months of heat starting in June.

Thanks to everybody who supported this TREEmendous effort. Jai MA!

IAM - Integrated Amrita Meditation Technique®
The IAM - Integrated Amrita Meditation Technique® is a powerful tool for our spiritual growth. 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.
There is no time like NOW to learn the IAM Technique!

Amma Picture Seva
Aum Namah Shivaya,
I have been doing Amma picture cutting seva since about 2007. I cut the Amma pictures from the leftover Amma posters and program guides.
The pictures need to be sent to the Amritapuri ashram for redistribution. I am requesting that devotees travelling to the Amritapuri ashram bring some of the pictures with them, if they are able to. Please contact
Thank you, Donna.
"Our body has grown in all directions, but our mind has not expanded. For the mind to become as expansive as the universe, one should become like a child first. Only a child can grow up."
- Amma
