    People can care for their family, their local community, the country they are citizens of, or the entire world. His Divine Holiness Pramukh Swami Maharaj cares for humanity both on an individual level, as well as on a global level, and to witness unrest in the world deeply hurts him. Therefore, through his inspiration, a Vishvashanti Mahayagna, or Prayer for World Peace, was held.

    Devotees participated in the prayer and performed the yagna rituals as learned brahmins sang Vedic verses. Swamishri graced the vidhi and also performed the necessary rituals. In addition, he did pujan of the murtis to be consecrated in the newly built Shikharbaddh mandir. At the end, during Swamishri's blessings, he explained the greatness of yagnas and said they are performed to please the deities so they continue to shower the rain, keep the natural resources in abundance, etc. He also mentioned that the yagna was performed to restore peace in this unstable world.

    During the evening assembly, senior saints explained the care Swamishri has for humanity. Kishores then performed a drama on the dangers of addictions. Before his blessings, Swamishri inaugurated English versions of the Ramayan and Bhagvat Gita along with two new bhajan cds.

    In his blessings, Swamishri explained the significance of the Ramayan and Bhagvad Gita. He stated that one should read and study these great scriptures. He also warned all to stay away from the dangers of addictions.
