Amma Sri Karunamayi
Amma Sri Karunamayi, a Hindu spiritual leader renowned for her unconditional motherly love and dedication to helping those in need, will be in Philadelphia in June, with several opportunities for anyone to hear her message at the at BuxMont Unitarian Universalist Fellowship. Her visit begins with a session of Individual Blessings and Spiritual Discourse, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., June 18, in which she will share her profound understanding of the ancient Indian sages’ deep spiritual wisdom in a relaxed and enjoyable discourse blended with humor, motherly advice, devotional singing and personal blessings. This is a special opportunity for everyone to meet one-on-one with Karunamayi and convey any specific questions or blessing requests to her.
