Vicharan Reports

7 June 2009 (VS 2065, Akshar Purnima Vatsavitri Vrat Purn) Sunday, Mumbai

The evening satsang assembly celebrated Children’s Day. A drama in Hindi ‘Sanskar Surya ke dharak’, written by Aksharkirtan Swami, depicted inspiring incidents from the lives of BAPS children. Thereafter, Swamishri was garlanded by sadhus. A publication in Kannada language, Swaminarayan Sampradaya, was released by Swamishri. Finally, in his blessings Swamishri said, “Children have presented a wonderful programme here today. By realizing God’s glory, one is blessed with soul-force. By treading the path of satsang, others are also inspired. Quite often one becomes proud of one’s wealth and career. The feeling that ‘I have done this’ always prevails. The mighty Ravan, Kamsa, Shishupal, Dantvakra and others ruled the world and people shuddered under their persecutions – but they too passed away, leaving no trace of themselves. So, having ego is wrong. Do not have pride of any type. If you have the blessings of God and his Sadhu, then you will have inner strength.”

The evening satsang assembly celebrated Kishore-Kishori and Yuvak-Yuvati Day. More than 2,500 youths had assembled in the Yogi Sabhagruh. In all, there were 9,900 devotees and youths. When Swamishri arrived, a drama ‘Ek Daglu’ was in progress. Thereafter Swamishri was honoured with garlands. In his blessings Swamishri praised, “Kishore mandal ni jai. The reason behind the Kishore Mandal’s enthusiasm and faithful effort is the motive to please Maharaj, Swami, Shastriji Maharaj and Yogiji Maharaj. Outside, many programmes are held to please and entertain others, but one will not gain values and inner purity. However, when one becomes associated with and committed to satsang, one realizes its importance, and then one nourishes the feeling of what one can do for God and his Sadhu. By indulging in material joys, one invites misery and pain. No matter how wealthy one is infatuation for worldly pleasures does not give peace. And conversely, when one has no wealth but savours satsang, one is blessed with peace.”
