    Although it is still a few months away, kishores and kishoris observed the Shraadh of Shastriji Maharaj during the evening program. Shraadh is a tribute to and a celebration of the life of a loved one, and all throughout the program, saints and kishores commemorated the life and works of Shastriji Maharaj.

    The entire environment was made reminiscent of Shastriji Maharaj, from the Yagnapurush Smruti Mandir backdrop on stage, to the kirtans of Shastriji Maharaj playing as delegates filed into the assembly hall.

    Kishores learned about the hardships he faced, the struggles he overcame, and his persistence and zeal for spreading the Akshar Purushottam Upasana through skits, speeches, and videos. Kishores also asked Swamishri to recount several personal accounts of his experiences with Shastriji Maharaj and his efforts.

    At the conclusion of the program, according to tradition, Swamishri served dudhpaak to saints, and senior saints served all delegates present.
