    Prior to the start of the Bal-Balika Din evening program, a number of dignitaries greeted Pramukh Swami Maharaj. Georgia State Representative, Mr. Hugh Floyd, and Former Councilman of the City of Clarkston, Mr. Abdul Akbar, welcomed Swamishri to the State of Georgia. The Chief of Staff for the Speaker of the House for the State of Georgia, Mr. Charles "Chuck" Topetzes, presented a resolution on behalf of the Speaker of the House to recognize June 9, 2004 as "Pramukh Swami Maharaj Spirit of Humanity Day".

    To advance the theme of Bal-Balika Din - "Swamina Baag Ma Khilya Re Ame Foramta Phool" - an evening program, entirely presented by children, was organized. The use of different presentation media such as speeches, videos, kirtans, dances, and dramas emphasized the importance of satsang and social & moral values.

    In the end, Swamishri blessed the assembly by stressing the importance of becoming a good "gardener" to nurture moral and spiritual values in children by bringing them to mandir and the Bal Sabha. Swamishri also advised parents to give time, love, and respect to their children.
