I found the structure of the retreat was really well designed to take me deeper, to a place I never thought possible for me, to the perfect stillness that I had only read about. Now I could all of a sudden get in touch with it.

We do hear a lot about 'turning within' but it stays on an intellectual level. This retreat really opened my inner doors. I spent 6 days fully in bliss, enjoying each and every moment, experiencing the music of my soul.

Where there is Love, there is No Distance

In response to the current pandemic and widespread travel restrictions, Amma has asked that Amrita Silent Retreats be made available online for her devotees around the world. Throughout these challenging times, Amma has been consistently encouraging us to maintain our daily spiritual practice, to accept the present moment with gratitude, to pray and meditate for world peace, and to remain optimistic and self confident. This online program provides a way for participants to connect with Amma in a palpable way. As Amma herself often reminds us, “where there is love, there is no distance.” All sessions will be broadcast live from Amritapuri.

Unity in Practice

Please join us for this opportunity to practice together with thousands of Amma’s devotees worldwide in a spirit of goodwill, peace and solidarity.
