Welcome to the Nelson Satsang

Amma's Nelson Satsang, B.C., Canada
Established in 1999, our small group has been gathering regularly every Tuesday evening from 7:00pm to 9:00pm for spiritual nourishment. Following Amma's guidance, our evening begins with 3 Om's and the Peace Chant for 5 minutes. We share in the leading of the various components:
-  A reading from a book about Amma
-  Chanting 108 names of the Goddess
-  Singing devotional songs in call-response
-  Offering of Aarati, the flame of heart wisdom
-  Closing prayers for world peace and for our spiritual upliftment
- 10 to 20 minute meditation
-  Sharing of blessed fruit and sweets
We have managed through the years to organise a few group community projects:
-  A garage sale for fund-raising
-  Making paper bags for retreat sales
-  Devotional singing and fund-raising for Tsunami relief
-  Video film of Amma and devotional singing to introduce Amma in our community
-  Plant sale
But mostly, each of us offers our "selfless service" wherever we can in our own lives. Even picking up litter is a welcomed service. In our small, rural city of Nelson it is easy to share a warm smile and remember Amma's message of love, compassion and gratitude.
