The Ashram was filled with scores of devotees all day and night, and the positive vibrations coming from the chanting of the mantras was felt by all.
The evening started with the first of the “Char Prahar Poojas” at 7:00 PM. Pandit Rameshji rhythmically commenced the Samoohik Pooja. Devotees filled the temple, ready to become a part of the grand pooja; they brought many offerings such as bel patra, ber, Madaar flowers (Shivji’s favorite), fruit and milk. Melodicious & rhythmic “Om Namah Shivay” chant was echoing throughout the temple.
This year Main Yajman for Char Prahar Puja were Sangeeta Prajyot Lunavat, Preeti Hansmukh Seth, Shantaben Motibai Patel and Anita Vijay Singh. Devotee Anand Tiwari came all the way from Chicago to attend this puja and prepared the delicious prasad or falahar. An event like this is impossible to put together without the help of our great team of supporters, devotees, sponsors and volunteers. We would like to thank all of them. Without you all, this event could not have possibly been as successful as it was. Ohm Namah Shivay!
