Balaks presented a very creative
evening program, in which they entered a "time machine". They
went back in time to see first-hand what the time of Bhagwan
Swaminarayan and his spiritual succession of God-realized
saints was like. They chose five different locations in time,
starting with Bhagwan Swaminarayan's time, and moving all
the way through to Yogiji Maharaj's time.
At each place in time, they
learned about incidents related to Bhagwan Swaminarayan and
the Guru Parampara through speeches, dramas, and dances. Saints
also sang kirtans about Brahmswarup Shastriji Maharaj and
Brahmswarup Yogiji Maharaj, which put Swamishri, saints, and
the delegates in a very joyous and festive mood.
Swamishri also narrated his
favorite incidents of Bhagwan Swaminarayan and Shastriji Maharaj,
and explained the importance of following agna through an
incident of Bhagatji Maharaj.
Before Swamishri left the assembly,
he personally served dudhpaak to the saints, as Shastriji
Maharaj's shraadh was symbolically celebrated. After, senior
saints served all the balaks dudhpaak.
