    "Ever Since", a series of days dedicated to the exploration of the history of Bhagwan Swaminarayan and the Guru Parampara, met its conclusion with a day solely devoted to the memory of Brahmswarup Yogiji Maharaj.

    This exploration of Yogiji Maharaj's life and works began with the singing of selected stanzas from kirtans describing his life during Swamishri's morning puja and continued into the evening assembly.

    During this assembly, devotees had the privilege of watching rare video footage of Yogiji Maharaj to gain a better understanding of his charismatic personality. A portrayal of one of his famous stories showed how one should have "kef" for having attained God and His Saint.

    In his blessings to the assembly, Swamishri explained that it is in one's great fortune to have met such a pure and holy saint, and this rare attainment should be cherished forever. Swamishri recited the line "Yogi Bapa na prem maa paagal thai gayaa," and explained that instead of becoming overpowered by worldly pleasures, one should focus their attention on God and His Saint.
