Communicate with Amma

Starts November 1st! The language of your heart is love.

Amma knows how much her children yearn to speak with her in her mother tongue Malayalam. So, in the spirit of connecting to Amma through conversation, we have designed a short Malayalam course for you. This is not only a language module but also a spiritual practice as all the learning is geared towards conversing with and about Amma. In this way, you not only learn Malayalam but also bring Amma into your heart. **Please note this is Part 1 of a repeat of the same Level 1 course offered in August.**
