Amma Amritapuri Spiritual

On June 21st, participants attending Amma’s Santa Fe retreat were treated to a special yoga session with Amma.

“Yoga is not just physical movement, like going to the gym and exercising,” Amma explained. “Rather, it is yet another way to know God, the infinite power we truly are. Yoga is meditation. Just like meditation, performing yoga with awareness will help us go deeper and deeper into our own Inner Self. If physical exercises are like swimming on the surface of the ocean, proper yoga practices are like diving deep into the ocean. The experience has a totally different dimension to it. The difference is like a caged bird versus a bird flying in the sky, enjoying the vast expanse.”

Yoga Day special sessions were conducted at various villages or rural India adopted by the Ashram under the 101 village projects, Amrita SeRVe
