A beautiful explanation on Guruji and Babaji and the path of Self Realization was given by Sujataji and Janaki ma in their calm and loving voice.
Prayer in Kannada was followed by chants: "Listen to my soul song" and "Door of my heart" sung both in Kannada and English. Children played the musical instruments and followed Sujathaji. Then a short meditation was held followed by the chants: "Guru Yogananda Sharanam", "Cloud Colour Christ" in English and Hindi, "Hare Krishna Hare Ram" , "Mritunjaya Mantra" and Om Namah Shivaiah bhajans.
