Amma’s Birthday

Amritapuri is now getting ready for the celebration of Amma’s Birthday on 27th September.  All here are in the celebration mood. It is the most biggest fest we have at Amrita. We all enjoy it like anything.  People from all over the world come here to celebrate the great day.  This is one of the moment when I feel proud of coming to Amrita seeing such a huge crowd, all to see Amma just a glimpse. The atmosphere is so divine here with Amma’s presence. The main highlight of the event compared to any other fest is that people does selfless service during Amma’s Birthday.  All  will be whole heartedly doing seva and will be busy with their duties trying to do it with maximum perfection.

I am lucky to be here for the Amma’s Birthday for the last year. It was for the first time in my life that I stayed back to do some service. Apart from tremendous satisfaction, the joy of being together with Amma doing service to the people who had come to see Amma cannot be expressed . We students are given responsibilities that generate leadership qualities among us.  Last time I did security job and I did the job with whole heart.  The other jobs assigned were plate washing, accommodation arrangements, crowd control, food arrangements etc.

Cultural events filled with beautiful songs and dances add colors to the celebration.  I am eagerly looking forward for 27th september.

Om Amriteshwaryai Namaha…
