Friends of Amma - March 2020
As a result of the situation with COVID-19 (Coronavirus), we regret to inform you that we will be suspending all in-person satsangs and public programs until further notice. This includes any events around the UK scheduled by the MA Centre and Friends of Amma organisations.
We have been closely monitoring the situation with COVID-19 and are aware of the uncertainty felt by so many worldwide.
This decision was made taking into account current directives and precautionary advice from health authorities with regard to preventing further spread of the virus. It is also in line with actions taken by Amma’s other international organisations. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. It is nevertheless our responsibility as an organisation to prioritise your health.
We will continue to assess the situation on a weekly basis and provide regular updates regarding our activities going forward. Updates will be available through the Amma UK website, email newsletters, Facebook, Twitter and other social media outlets.
Amma recently spoke about the virus and the tools provided in spirituality to help us cope with the current situation and also emphasized the need to follow health department preventative advice (see full message below). In addition to the preventative measures mentioned above, we will continue to pray for the situation to improve as per Amma’s guidance. We are also working to facilitate online satsang, meditation and prayer.
We thank all of our satsang members and supporters for your understanding as we adapt to these challenging times together and we pray that with God’s Grace, this situation passes quickly. We would also like to take this opportunity to acknowledge and thank all the health professionals who continue to offer their skills and services. We pray for their health and well-being.

The MA Centre UK has launched a Befriending Service which aims to provide a listening ear to those in the community who feel lonely and isolated during the uncertain times of Covid-19 and beyond. The service has been developed by a team of mental health specialists and experts from other related fields who have trained our volunteers to offer befriending services.
If you would like to become a volunteer email us at [email protected]
