The evening sabha on Thursday 15th June 2023 began with Acharya Swamiji Maharaj performing Sandhya Aarti to the Lord. Thereafter, there was Eight Abji Bapashree Ni Vato Samuh Parayan Purnahuti and they served a variety of purposes such as expressing gratitude to the Lord for guidance in their personal lives or praying for the health of family members.
The congregation was blessed with Gnan Mahodadhi Acharya Swamiji Maharaj’s Divine Ashirwad, in which He elaborated on the second varta from Abji Bapashree Ni Vato Bhag 1. He explained that the ‘fires’ of Kaam (lust), Krodh (anger), Lobh (greed) and Maan (pride) arise in our minds take great effort to control. A devotee explained this in English to the congregation and elaborated to say that to discard these we must relinquish the remembrance (smruti) and we must not have immense enmity or immense affection for anything else other than the Lord’s murti.
