MA Center Chicago (MACC)

Amrita Book Club at MACC

(Monthly event) Feb 16, 2019 to May 18, 2019 (ended)

The Amrita Book Club of North America, recently blessed by Amma, gives devotees an avenue to gather together and dive more deeply into Amma’s teachings. The Club studies and discusses Amma’s books and some of the books written by her senior disciples. The teachings contained in these books explain and illustrate Vedantic truths and elements of Sanatana Dharma. Amrita Book Club generally meets the first and third Saturday's of the month from 2 pm to 3 pm in the South Lodge Library.
