7 October 2001 (V.S.2057, Adhik Aso Vad 5) Sunday, Amdavad. Children's Day
In the evening assembly a memorable program by children was performed before an audience of 16,000 devotees. Firstly, a saga of outstanding children of the Bal Mandal was narrated. It reflected the effect of Satsang on their moral, social and academic performances.
Then young children chanted the dhun and told Swamishri to play the dholak and chant the dhun. This was followed by an impressive monoacting presentation on the story of Magniram. The children also took the opportunity of playing 'ras' with Swamishri and then performed arti and offered thal to Thakorji.
Finally, the program was crowned with Swamishri's blessings.
13 October 2001 (V.S.2057, Adhik Aso Vad 11) Saturday, Amdavad. Kishore Day
o During Swamishri's morning puja, the kishores sang a variety of bhajans on the Swaminarayan Mantra.
o In the evening, Swamishri arrived for the special Kishore Day program. A fusion of bhajans and dialogues, traditionally called a 'dayro', on the theme of 'Atheists become Theists' was brilliantly performed by kishores. Amidst a village backdrop, when a group of rural people were regaling in a 'dayro' they were challenged by a group of academic students to prove the existence of God. Then how the students were convinced brilliantly unfolded through the 'dayro'.
Swamishri finally blessed the assembly by elaborating upon the existence and glory of God.
