Shri Harikrishna Maharaj dressed in regal attire for Amas

Swamishri performs pooja

 Kishores perform a drama

Thursday, June 17, 2004

    It is human nature to look out for one's own interests. It is much harder, yet more rewarding, to sacrifice for God and Guru. The evening cultural program highlighted the importance of this form of sacrifice, or samarpan. The same message was portrayed in a motivational drama, "Anupam Samarpan Gathaa", performed by the youth wing. It narrated the incident of Veera Bhagat, a devotee from Shreeji Maharaj's time, who made great sacrifices during the construction of a temple.

    In his blessings, Swamishri furthered this message by explaining that what the body enjoys is an illusion that does not compare to the constant joy one experiences in Akshardham. He also explained that even if we do just a little for God, he gives us many folds in return. Also present at the assembly was Mr. Tony Mendoza, council member of the city of Artesia, who presented a proclamation on behalf of the city welcoming Swamishri and honoring "his influence for the good accomplished by the BAPS organization."
