Welcome to the Buffalo Satsang

Our satsang was formed in 1998 and it meets once a month by rotation in devotees' homes.  We usually hold our satsang on the first Sunday of each month from 3:30 to 5:30 pm. Occasionally, it is held on the second or the third Sunday.

The satsang begins with chanting of Amma's 108 names and is followed by a short Amma video and then devotional singing for about an hour. We end with arati, meditation, and closing prayers for world peace. Following the satsang, we share a potluck supper from 5:30 to about 7:30 pm. 

We had an active Mother's Kitchen project for a few years but it has been on a time-out, and we look forward to starting another service project in keeping with Amma's teachings. 

Classes on the Integrated Amrita Meditation Technique are held regularly at the university campuses and other locations in Buffalo.

Br. Ramanandji visits Buffalo every year to lead the celebrations of Amma's birthday and Amma’s senior disciples in the US regularly hold programs in nearby Toronto.   Of course, Amma's public programs and retreat at Toronto in July every year are eagerly anticipated by everyone.

In May 2010 we had the unexpected blessing of Amma's visit to Buffalo to receive the State University of New York's Honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters at a special ceremony arranged by the University in Amma's honor. This was a wonderful event, attended by nearly 1,000 people at the university campus. You can watch a video of it here.

We warmly welcome new members to join the satsang.  You may stay informed of our activities as well as special programs by joining our email list.  If interested, please email us at ammabuffalo@ammagroups.org to be added to the list.
