The festival of Annakut was celebrated in Washington (D.C.) on Sunday, the 9th October 2016 in the presence of P. Sarvamangalswami and P. Santcharanswami in which, more than 250 devotees from Maryland and Virginia in addition to Washington had participated.

In the beginning of the sabha, the Bhajanmandal had soaked everybody in devotion by presenting their devotional sloakas, dhoon and Kirtanbhakti. P.B. Girishbhai (Springfield), P.B. Bharatbhai (Chester) and P.B. Nitinbhai had collectively welcomed P. Sarvamangalswami by presenting him a bouquet while, the youths from Virginia/Maryland had welcomed P. Santcharanswami with a bouquet.

The manager of the sabha, Niravbhai (S.R.) said in his speech that, P.P. Swamiji always tell us that, though, the Sharadpunam is the birthday of A.M.A.M. Gunatitanandswami, we all are also the aksharbrahmas only.

Then, a video presentation presenting P.P. Swamishree’s speech was shown in which, He had explained “an understanding like Gunatit”, meaning, whatever qualities we possess, is only due to God and secondly, “tare laine hun”, means, how to develop the spirit of this statement within us and, in the 2nd presentation, by watching the picture of unbelievable/unparalleled society without any desire-dislike-indifference, established by Guruhari P.P. Swamishree by sacrificing years of His life doing the hardest devout austerity, everybody’s head bowed before Him.

Then, describing the excellent related incidents, P. Sarvamangalswami, who came from Haridham, India, had explained as to how to live a natural life by removing obstinacy, reverence and envy to enjoy the real Dipotsavi in our life. He said that, the incarnations come on this earth only to create Dipotsavi in our life and, citing the example of “Gora Kumbhar”, he showed the way of entering on the path of Dasatva. Explaining the spiritually incomprehensive talks in very simple terms that, after coming in touch/contact with the real saints, they only do efforts on behalf of us and we have only to act as per their instructions, he guided all and, putting up a prayer at the lotus feet of Swamiji, he said that, “You only are the supreme and not any one of us”, so, please enable us to live like a das before the das.

At the end of the sabha, all presented the Thal before Shree Thakorjee and took the darshans of annakut. All the devotees, young and old, had participated in the preparation of entire festival with full atmiyata and zeal. The youths had worked hard to make a beautiful decoration on the scene of Snow Resort with the spirit of “Only you be pleased” and had put the mottos like “Harmony, friendliness and unity” on the rope-way to present their devotion. By standing, all the youths and the elders sitting in their seats, had shouted the slogans “Hey Maharaj, Hey Swami! Das Na Das Banavsoji” to express their resolution in the form of prayer.

The ladies from the mandal had prepared more than around 250 different food items and had also done the service of serving to all the devotees to present their excellent devotion. Thus, as result of mutual cooperation from all the devotees, more than around 250 devotees took the benefit of annakut in Washington (D.C.)
