Shri Harikrishna Maharaj

The Swagat Sabha stage

Swamishri blesses the assembly


Monday, June 7, 2004

    After a span of almost four years, Pramukh Swami Maharaj blessed the devotees of the South East region of the United States again. As a mark of "Southern Hospitality", Swamishri was welcomed by BAPS representatives from all six southern states: Georgia, Alabama, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Florida. Balaks (kids) raised flags of all these states to greet Swamishri. The Bal Mandal showed their devotion by performing a colorful dance, "Halo Halo Guruji Ne Angane…" in the program.

    Mr. Lee Swaney, the mayor of the city of Clarkston, and Mr. Charles Nelson, the Police Chief, felicitated Swamishri by presenting the "Key to the City of Clarkston". The Police Chief wrote in the guest book: "If the city of Clarkston was populated by the Hindu people, I would not need a police dept.".

    Swamishri blessed the assembly by explaining the importance of spirituality in life. He emphasized that intelligence lies in identifying the God or the God-realized saint. In the end, Swamishri gave "Sameep Darshan" to all of the devotees present in the assembly.
