His Divine Holiness Acharya Swamishree and the mandal of thirteen sants continued their vicharan of North America by visiting the Midwest region of the United States from June 15th – June 30th, 2008. During this time, Acharya Swamishree held sabhas and performed numerous padhramanis across many Midwest states with His sants.
While travelling from Toronto, Canada, to Kansas, at the transit airport in Cleveland, Ohio, an American was attracted towards a group of sants in bright orange outfit. He remembered something about people like them from the Hindu sacred text that he was currently reading, Bhagavad-Gita. He approached the sants and disciples and asked them a few questions about our religion. The kind person was so curious and interested. He then pulled out his Bhagavad-Gita from his bag, and the sants and disciples took him to Acharya Swamishree. Acharya Swamishree and he conversed for a while as they waited for their flights. The American mentioned he was from Boston, Massachusetts, and Acharya Swamishree told him He will visit Boston later in July. Upon hearing this, he was very excited and told Acharya Swamishree he would definitely visit Him while He is in Boston. Later, he asked Acharya Swamishree to autograph His Bhagavad-Gita. This way, many people are enlightened by Hindu teachings and the teachings of Supreme Lord Shree Swaminarayan.
