21-22 Jun, Dallas -America Yatra 2018
Amma’s yearly visit to Dallas was graced with the celebration of the International Day of Yoga. All those gathered, young and old, met Amma first by participating in an energizing session of Amrita Yoga. Amma kept smiles on everyone’s faces as she helped demonstrate the poses on a two-year-old child. This was especially suited to the intention of Amrita Yoga, Amma’s heart-centered yoga technique, which seeks to reach beyond the physical to increase awareness and union with the divine in all aspects of life.
Amma says, “Every action done with awareness can, in fact, be called yoga. We should try to inculcate the same degree of awareness we have when performing yoga asanas in everything we do. In this manner, we can become focused in our True Self. We will realize that there has always been only peace and oneness.”
Earlier Amma was welcomed to Texas by the mayor of nearby Addison, Joe Chow.
