There were a lot of devotees who did not take the lead but did just as much by chanting the Mahamantra on mute. It was as if the entire US got together on the same plane to celebrate this great day.
The Satsang concluded with Smt Sujathaji and Smt Ramyaji leading the song “Kaliyayum Bali Kollum” by Sri Sri Swamiji.
Indeed, it was a great Jayanthi for Sri Mahaprabhu ji because all the devotees did was pleased Him the most. It was as if one the statements in the song came true.
“Ulagam ariyacheiven ena sabatham eduthaare
Avar sabatham niraivera kirtanam paadire”
