    Swamishri concluded his stay in Chicago by installing the murti of Shri Nilkanth Varni in the lower level of the Mandir. This golden murti rests atop a golden lotus, and allows countless devotees to offer an "abhishek", or bathe the murti with water. Swamishri performed the first abhishek himself with water from the sacred rivers of India, after which senior saints and devotees did the same.

    Now, after a mere three months, Swamishri has taken Satsang to a new level in North America. His tireless efforts have enhanced the personal Satsang of thousands, and Satsang mandals as a whole in every major center he visited.

    Swamishri's efforts also inspired children, teens, and youths to attend a national convention in Orlando, Florida where they learned about Indian culture and the ways of spiritualism.

    He broke his own records by inaugurating two shikarbadh mandirs, what many claim as wonders of the world, in Houston and Chicago within a span of just 16 days. He performed the bhoomi pujan for Akshardham, a beautiful monument to be built with unique exhibitions illustrating India's religious history, in the state of New Jersey. In addition, he performed the Shilanyas Vidhi for shikarbadh mandirs to be built in Atlanta, Los Angeles, and Toronto. Though his accomplishments are endless, he remains humble in front of God and His devotees. He has revitalized Satsang and inspired higher ideals in existing and new aspirants.

    In his final blessings to the devotees, he said that if one is unable to visit pilgrimage places in India, one should not worry because the Chicago Mandir is a pilgrimage place for aspirants. He also explained that one who possesses a true buddhi recognizes God and His Saint. Most importantly, he elaborated on how devotees receive many in return if they give only a little to God.

    As devotees bid farewell to Swamishri, they knew that Swamishri's divine presence would always remain with them though he continues his vicharan to the United Kingdom, Africa, and finally back to India.
