The annual Joli Utsav in India is a day of charity and kite-flying. This year, the festival was celebrated by Swamishri in Jamnagar, Gujarat. More than 5000 devotees from all parts of Gujarat and abroad enthusiastically participated in the auspicious Joli festival. The festival assembly wore a colorful look with a backdrop of kites, folkdances, kirtans and speeches. Finally, the assembly culminated with Swamishri's blessings and the traditional chanting of the Joli mantra, 'Narayan Hare Sachidanand Prabho!' Thereafter the devotees filed past reverentially offering their respects and donations to Thakorji and Swamishri.
