The ultimate purpose of life is to establish an inner connection with God and our True Self.
- Amma

On the first Sunday of every month, we usually come together for satsang in the Cape Town area. The satsang begins at 3pm, but we ask participants to kindly arrive at least 15 minutes early, so that we can start on time. Entrance is free and all are most welcome!

A satsang in Amma's name consists of the recitation of the 108 names (mantras) of the Divine Mother, reading aloud from one of Amma's books, singing bhajans (spiritual songs), a guided meditation and a light ceremony. After the satsang we spend a few moments in stillness.

Upcoming satsang meetings are announced on our Facebook page Amma South Africa. We also send out email notices to everyone on our mailing list. Please go to our Contact page if you would like to be on our mailing list.

Visiting Swami

Swami Shubamritananda visits South Africa about once a year. He has lived at Amma's ashram, Amritapuri, as a monastic disciple since 1989 and regularly gives lectures and seminars throughout Europe, Africa, India and the Middle East. Drawing on 30 years of experience as one of Amma’s closest disciples and personal translators, Swamiji shares his understanding of Amma’s teachings and the Eastern spiritual traditions in practical and easily understandable terms.
