Reminder that Amma's LA programs are hosted by both MA Center San Ramon and MA Center LA.
They are requesting help from all of the Western Regional Satsangs from California to British Columbia.
They need ALL HANDS on deck!
The two public program days - especially the first day, early morning through the end, are in great need of experienced Greeters.
This is an entirely new, rather complicated venue, and we all need to work together to welcome our guests who are coming to see Amma.
We also need Greeters for the retreat and Devi Bhava, but right now we’re concentrating our efforts on those first two public days.
Whether or not you have done Greeting before for Amma’s programs, please use the link below and indicate your availability for Greeting shifts!
Our coordinating team is standing by to receive your info, and they will be in back in touch as quick as they possibly can.

Food Handling Sevas
There is a critical need for those of us with a valid food handler card. They are needed to handle food at any level.
Hundreds of volunteers per day are needed to prepare and serve food, clean up and recycle.
These sevas require a current Food Handler Card. If you need one, please go to www.efoodcard.com to take a fast course.
There are many seva opportunities! Sign up for food handling sevas here!
Thanks so much to everyone who is willing to step up and take part in this amazing collaboration,

"Attaining knowledge about the external world is merely gathering information. On the other hand, knowledge of the true essence of the world and our Self is knowledge born of discernment; that is the rise of true knowledge.
The first type of knowledge continuously changes.
The second type is the permanent and eternal truth. As disciples, the guru holds our hand and guides us into the world of that knowledge that is the source of all other knowledge."
