5, Sunday, Surat; 62nd Pramukh Varni Din
In spite of the drizzling rain the devotees remained seated in the evening celebration assembly. Pujya Mahant discoursed to the assembly. Thereafter, Swamishri was honoured with garlands and a shawl. Then youths performed a traditional dance. Pujya Ghanshyamcharan Swami offered Swamishri an urn full of 115,591 rice grains whose husks were individually peeled by members of the mahila mandal. They had written a prayer beseeching Swamishri to make them pure and perfect like the rice grains.
Finally, Swamishri blessed the assembly, “I have witnessed today the pure faith of the devotees of Surat. Despite the rain you have all come here and remained seated to avail of today’s satsang here. You have done so with the desire for darshan, satsang and moksha. You will all attain inner peace.” After Swamishri’s blessings the youths performed a drama, “Nirgun Rangi Chadar”. The devotees remained seated patiently till the assembly concluded.
