Kitchari prasad was served throughout the day till after 5pm. It was wonderful to see the leaders in our movement serving prasad to the locals, everyone who witnessed this also became enthusiastic to serve. At one point it was noted that the line for serving was bigger than the line for eating! Jayapataka Swami gave a wonderful discourse on the glories of the Advaita Acarya and Madhavendra Puri. Another highlight of the event was when Subhag Swami spontaneously started a kirtan in the middle of his lecture. At the end of the kirtan, thousands of devotees were chanting and dancing with their arms raised in the air.
