On Sunday August 24th, 2008, just outside Sri Bhavan in Sripuram, Amma did an amazing abishekam puja. Whilst Amma held Narayani, 9 elephants who came from Rajasthan for the procession took turns dipping their trunks in water and washing Amma and Narayani.
Everyone laughed because the elephants were spraying everywhere (some were less compliant than others). Then Vaishnavi and Karpagam came along and Amma dipped their trunks in the buckets of water and using them like hoses sprayed Herself, Narayani and all the devotees!
Lord Krishna's birthday was also on Sunday August 24th, 2008 and to celebrate this auspicious day, Amma's Amma and all the ladies cooked sweets and treats for the whole day. In the evening the devotees sang bhajans with the ladies.
