  • August Selfless Service

    Updated August 1, 2014 EventSetup1-600x400.jpg A volunteer prepares for Saturday satsangs
    Join us for selfless service on Saturdays  as we end Amma’s tour, take advantage of the summer weather, and look forward to an event-filled fall.
    Amma’s tour supplies have come home! Together, we can help bring Amma’s tour to a graceful end by unpacking, cleaning, and storing this big truckload of supplies. Handling all these items gives you a behind-the-scenes peek at how Amma’s tour is put together, and can be a beautiful way to reflect on the way Amma has blessed so many people with her presence across the continent during the last two months.
    This month, you can serve with the kitchen team to clean and organize the many bins of supplies that have fed Amma’s guests this summer, all across the continent. The team also plans to clean and re-organize the Center’s dishwashing and serving areas. To keep you cooler, these sevas start earlier, at 9:00 am, and end at 1:00 pm.
    As the regular Saturday satsangs resume (on August 9th), we will give Amrita Hall an extra-thorough cleaning, and re-stock the Amma Shop for Saturday programs. Your service here will help prepare M.A. Center for the many spiritual events of the fall, including Ganesh Chaturthi , the Labor Day retreat , and Amma’s birthday celebration.
    In August, the sunny weather creates the perfect conditions for painting, or for serving in the orchards. We plan to paint or re-paint a number of gateways at the Center this month. If you like painting, or just want to make the Center look even nicer, come out and roll up your sleeves for a painting project. You can also soak up some sun building fences or digging sites for new trees in the GreenFriends orchards.
