"In reality, the annual return of Mahabali should symbolize our return to the values of Onam. Onam becomes meaningful only when love, friendship, sharing, love of Nature and other values overflow in our lives. Today, the God within us is in the form of Vamana—a dwarf. Through our innocence, sacrifice, austerity and compassion, this dwarf should grow into the giant Trivikrama. We should grow to see God in all the three worlds, and love and serve everyone and everything. Only then will our Onam become the real Onam." - Amma (Sri Mata Amritanandamayi) 
 
We cordially invite all devotees to join for the Onam feast, home-cooked and served in the most authentic manner -  on SAS banana leaves with an all traditional Onam Menu
