15, Sunday, Surat; Bal Din
The special evening satsang assembly was dedicated to Bal Din, Children’s Day. Firstly, Pujya Viveksagar Swami discoursed to the assembly. Thereafter, Swamishri was honoured with garlands and a shawl made of flowers. A drama, ‘Parajay’, written by Jayendra Vinchhi, was enacted by children and volunteers. The theme of the drama was how Kaliyug (the age of moral darkness) was defeated by the moral and spiritual steadfastness of Swaminarayan devotees.
During his blessings Swamishri praised the drama and said, “Because one has desires and attachments for material objects one feels that one should earn money through wrong means too. But by endeavouring honestly and in accordance to the commands of our shastras and holy sadhus one will gain inner peace, peace in the family, society and everywhere. Because of desires man wallows in gambling, addictions and bad company which makes him miserable. Thus refuge in God gives one peace and happiness. Satsang means to associate with bona fide spiritual persons.”
