Pramukh Swami Maharaj arrived
in Atlanta on Monday, June 7 from New Jersey to continue his
Dharma Yatra (spiritual tour) in North America. Yuvaks (youths)
of the South East region joyfully performed the "Bhangra"
dance to welcome Swamishri's convoy into the mandir premises.
Devotees dressed in traditional attire played the Bhungal
(pipe) and Dhol (drum) to lead Swamishri into the mandir.
Yuvaks lovingly sang "Aaj Pritam Gher Aaviya…" as Swamishri
made his way down a nicely decorated walkway. Swamishri offered
prostrations and did Thakorji's darshan with immense devotion.
Swamishri was then garlanded by senior devotees of the South East region. Pujya Viveksagar Swami
provided a brief report of Pramukh Swami Maharaj's Dharma
Yatra up to the present date.
In the end, Swamishri blessed
the assembly by stressing the importance of unity. Swamishri
reiterated the "agna" of Yogiji Maharaj: "Ek Vichar (one thought),
Ek Ruchi (one inner desire), and Ek Sang (one company) of
the God-Realized Saint."
