Swamis parents are kept on the stage on the left side in full standing pose
decorated with beautiful roses... the vibrations are terrific ..........all

music] playing followed by the stage lights coming on
......... chanting of OM>>>OM>>>>OM>>>>> begins followed by
invocation of lord GANESH ...........Gowrinandan Gajanana Girijanandana he
Nandana............ Swami has arrived behind the stage with the Naadaswaram
band still playing........... SWAMI enters the stage walking escorted by a
very tall student, till the railing ,stands for about a minute and sits down
on his sofa.......

Swami is engrossed in the bhajans tapping his hand on his thighs and
blessing us all in between.......... the hall is packed to the
brim............. lots of VIPs are also present on the stage....Swami enjoys
the bhajans and in between is briefed about the arrangements for the days
programme......... at around 9:15 am swami stands up and AARTI is
taken......... meanwhile the students bring huge containers of prasadam on
stage which is blessed by Swami and first given to those on stage by Swami
himself and then swami signals to distribute the LADDOO prasadam to all
present in the hall...after Aarti swami signals to come down and again there
is excitement in the hall SWAMI comes down in his chair on the right gents
side lift and goes through the front row only blessing the small children in
front....and goes out through the ladies side and blesses some devotees in
the portico outside the ladies side for about 10 minutes .... meanwhile
there is an announcement that today evening there will be a play by balvikas
students of Bangalore after the evening darshan and bhajans.... i manage to
