A 3-day special convention for 100 sadhus and 450 leading male and female volunteers of BAPS Satsang Activity Cell was held in the divine presence of Pramukh Swami Maharaj in Gadhada. Swamishri lighted the inaugural lamp in the evening session at about 7.30 pm. The convention’s theme was ‘BAPS, One Family’. During the three days senior sadhus, Mahant Swami, Dr Swami and Viveksagar Swami, also discoursed to the volunteers. Swamishri blessed the convention in the morning and evening sessions.
In his inaugural blessings Swamishri said, “After writing number one the more the zeroes you add, the greater its value becomes. But if you do not have one then the zeroes will remain as zeroes. There is no total for that. God is the figure one. Never delete God. This means never allow any ill-feelings or find fault in Him. Do not perceive human traits in Him. All His actions: speaking, eating or whatever, are divine, divine and divine. But when you see human traits, the one is erased. Then you are left with zeroes and the cycle of life and death continues… No matter what number of mundane props you have, none will be of ultimate use. Only God’s support will be of benefit…”
In the following three days there were question-answer sessions with Swamishri, skits and audio-visual presentations.
