Amma

Thanks for posting Amma's schedule, Jonapi. I had a darshan with her 25 years ago quite by accident (OK, there are no accidents, it's all karma.)

I found the love vibe, the student devotion, and the instrumental section of musical players quite magical with the smell of camphor filling an entire hall.

I don't want to give the wrong impression. Amma is not a cult. The people aren't low-income space cadets who follow her. I do believe she MIGHT be a Hindu goddess though.

Maybe I'll go see her again.

Darshan

Amma was in London recently, until yesterday and will be heading to the U.S. from the 20th November to 1st December.
Her schedule is here - http://www.amritapuri.org/yatra

Please buy the wonderful documentary by visionary filmmaker Jan Kounen -

"Attempting to change the world [completely] is like trying to straighten the curly tail of a dog. But society takes birth from people. So by affecting individuals, you can make changes in the society and, through it, in the world. You cannot change it, but you can make changes. The fight in individual minds is responsible for the wars. So if you can touch people, you can touch the world".

- Mata Amritanandamayi Devi (Amma).

The upcoming year of 2012

I didn't bother to see the movie but there are a lot of people out there who believe that 2012 will be a special year for our planet.

Climate change;
Political upheaval;
Cataclysmic events;
Economic catastrophe.

It just makes me want to max out my credit lines!
And many world developments certainly point in the direction, or continuation at worse levels, of most or all of these disasters.

Is there going to be a Reckoning in 2012?
Anybody out there with the bottom line please chime in!
It's already 11/13/11 and I have to start planning...

Happy Birthday too

To Johnman. I know that he was hoping to get a VA loan to buy back his house, I'm still hoping that might happen but it just seems unlikely. Good to hear that he's doing ok. I miss him for sure in these parts, cookies and beer just aren't the same without him.
