The Sharad Punam festival took place at the Cleveland BAPS mandir in the presence of Pujya Tyagratna Swami, Pujya Munitilak Swami, Pujya Vivekmurti Swami and Pujya Devvandan Swami. The festival program was based on the Yashgatha kirtan: “Sahajanandji Sharan Tamare Rako re”. After each stanza presentations and speeches describing events that occurred throughout Gunatitianand Swami’s life were made. Finally, the sadhus discoursed on the unique saintliness of Gunatitanand Swami and how he is here today through Pramukh Swami Maharaj.
Following the festival the ladies had their own garba session in the mandir as they had vowed not to go out for garba. After garba, Pujya Vivekmurti Swami and Pujya Santo held a night shibir with devotees to discuss how Gunatitanand Swami and the Guru Parampara maintained their aims in life.
