    His Divine Holiness Pramukh Swami Maharaj was enthusiastically welcomed by devotees and dignitaries at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport as he began his three month tour of North America. For the first time in BAPS history, a Satsang Assembly was held within the west wing of the airport, where U.S. Customs Officials, JFK Airport Security, politicians from New York and New Jersey were present to receive Swamishri. Many renowned and influential Indian personalities were also there on this occasion to greet Swamishri.

    After the assembly, Swamishri was given a police escort to the New York Mandir, where he inaugurated the majestic, newly constructed entrance and addition to the mandir. Swamishri was in a jovial mood as he affectionately did darshan and humbly performed prostrations to the deities in the mandir.
