The SRIM Center officially opened May 8th, with an Inauguration Program and ribbon-cutting by Sri Karunamayi. During Amma's programs in Georgia, she stayed at Her residence on the ashram grounds, inaugurated the meditation hall, and gave an inspiring address to several hundred devotees in attendance.

"The future of this ashram is unbelievable," She told devotees. Amma then spoke about Her vision for the future, which focuses on providing unique programs that nurture all aspects of devotee's lives, and include cow protection, herbal medicinal gardens, a vanaprastha ashram for devotees on the land, and for Vedic scholars.

"Selfless people are the backbone of the society," Amma explained. "A lot of work is waiting for you...you can dedicate your life for a noble cause."

The devotees responded enthusiastically to the many presentations made at the Inauguration Program, which lasted late into the night, filled with chants, sacred dance, poetry, and a wonderful Darshan from Amma.
