Thousands of devotees descended on the city of Thiruvananthapuram on Friday to welcome Amma, who is on a two-day visit here. Residents of the Kaimanam Ashram greeted her on Thursday night. She blessed the devotees. Tokens were also distributed to the devotees to attend the shani/rahu pooja which began at 7am.

Addressing the devotees, Amma stressed the need for love and compassion in society. She also stressed the importance of protecting nature to ensure the sustainment of humanity. She further pointed out the importance of parents inculcating spiritual values in their children which will then inculcate self-control and compassion towards others. ‘Annadanam’ was held following the morning bhajan session.

Several VIPs also made a visit to the ashram on Friday seeking Amma’s blessings. O Rajagopal MLA; V S Sivakumar MLA; Narayana Kurup, poet and writer; Babu Chandran Nair, DIG of BSF; Shylaja Ravi, Director Kaumudi Publications; Vishnu Bhakthan, founder of New Rajasthan Marbles; and Sreekumari Rajasekharan, convener of Amrutolsavam, welcomed Amma by garlanding her. In the evening, cultural performances of the students of Amrita Vidyalayam School were held.

A special Kali pooja was also conducted at 7 pm. On Saturday, satsang, bhajans, meditation and darshan would commence from 10:30am. On Sunday, Amma will be the chief guest of the Ayyappa Bhakta Sangamam programme to be held at Putharikandam grounds.
