She came, she saw, she hugged and blessed! Her’s was an awesome spiritual energy for all Lucknowites to witness. HT We caught up with Mata Amritanandamayi ‘Amma’ during her recent visit and found out that
Amma sat down for the devotees at around 6.30 pm on Wednesday and got up at 5.20 am on Thursday.

More than 45, 000 people sought Amma’s darshan on Wednesday.
Devotees could choose to hear Amma’s ‘blessed whisper’ in Hindi, English or Malyalam.

Tokens for Amma’s darshan were distributed to about 45,000 people, including 25,900 men and 19,000 women. Many sought Amma’s blessing without having received tokens.

All devotees were served puri, sabzi, raita and pickle.

She donated houses to 112 poor persons, monthly pension to 10 physically challenged people and monthly pension to about 50 widows.

Amma’s caravan included 425 devotees travelling by about 5 buses and a camper van.

The pandal was erected on a 3,000-square metre area.

Amma’s caravan started its journey on February 2 from Amritpuri in Kollam and covered 6,000 km to reach Lucknow by road. The caravan’s longest non-stop trip so far has been the 500-km trip from Delhi to Lucknow.

Amma left Lucknow at about 12.30 pm on Thursday.
