Please read the report of Sadhvi Shantiji:
Today on the occasion of the anniversary of Swamiji's birthday and the Independence Day of India, we had a very big function in Jadan Ashram. The day started with fine rain which we enjoyed, replaced later on by beautiful sunny weather. The ceremony took place from 9am till 3pm. In this six hours Swamiji and all attendants of the program were completely absorbed by the beautiful and colorful presentations on the stage.
The main part of the program was held by our school children from the Shree Vishwa Deep Gurukul Vidyalaya. Hundreds of girls and boys attended the program and many of them took part in the presentations. We saw and heard speeches from the guests of honor, tragedies and comedy theatres, songs, bhajans, dances and prayers. Swami Avatar Puri played also a main role in one theatre performance and through the blessings of the Guru all evil forces were removed and peace and harmony was spread through mankind.
The high point of the program was the speech of Swamiji at the end, where he gave his blessings to the audience and to all devotees. Afterwards sweet and salty prasad was given to the hundreds of people.
We all enjoyed this very special Indian festival day and the joy of this day will remain in our hearts for a long time.
Wish you a wonderful and divine time
