devotees in a series of measured steps as an act of devotion and a
joyful experience of meditation in motion to the beat of bhajans and
music adoring Divine Mother. It is a very special form of celebration.

Jai Karunamayi Amma's Children All!

Happy Ganesh Chaturthi on Wednesday!

Please join us for Sri Ganesha Puja at SRIM center.

10:30 - 11:00    seating and sankalpa

11:00 -              puja

Please try to be present at the center early, so that you can be part of sankalpa.

If you can, please bring some fruits, red flowers,some green durva grass blades (bermuda grass) for the puja. The grass needs to be kept in water to retain freshness.

Pandit Nagabhushanji will be performing Ganesha puja and guiding us to do the puja along with him. Panditji will also do the puja on behalf of anyone who would like to sponsor the puja in absence.

The voluntary puja sponsorship of $21 will go towards building Amma's home in SRIM center. During Amma's 2008 visit to Atlanta, Amma gave her children the project of first getting the Vastu corrected on the SRIM land and then building her house on the SRIM land as early as possible, so that Amma can spend extended period of time at SRIM Center to bless us.

For vastu purposes, the hillock near the entrance needs to be leveled and the southwest part of the land where Amma's house is going to be built, needs to be raised. Looks like vastu correction in itself may cost about $30,000. If you know of people who can help with Amma's
project, kindly introduce them; your kindness will be much appreciated.

Let us pray to Lord Ganesha to remove all the obstacles in our path towards peace of mind and world peace, as per Amma's message in the following link:
