    Atlanta mandir celebrated the Senior Citizens’ Day in the divine presence of Pramukh Swami Maharaj. Senior saints delivered spiritual discourses in the morning sabha. The District Attorney of Dekalb County, Mr. Jeffrey H. Brickman, presented a proclamation to Swamishri that acknowledged the socio-spiritual activities of BAPS and propagation of values such as non-violence.

    Charlotte mandal performed an interesting drama - "Dollar Maaro Dev Ne Hu Dollar No Daas" – in the evening assembly, portraying the difficulties of senior citizens of Indian origin in America due to loss of family values. The drama also explained how mandir and satsang can help rejuvenate and preserve family values as taught by the Indian culture. In the end, everyone realized the importance of satsang while singing, "Satsang Maaro Dev Ne Hu Satsang No Daas".

    In his blessings at the end, Swamishri explained how mandir helps preserve moral and spiritual values in the older generation and helps to instill them in the younger generation. Swamishri asked the senior citizens to dedicate their retired life to the service of mandir and satsang.
