I attended the evening celebrations and the feeling of having hundreds of people present to worship God and the devas was incredible.
I speak virtually no Hindi, I can respond to greetings and that’s about all. Someone asked me whether it was boring to attend when most of the speech is in Hindi. Having attended the celebration, I can say that even though I cannot understand much. I understand the names of God and the devas; (Ishvara, Shiva, Krishna, Rama, Bhagwan), and hearing the holy swamis say the sacred names in the atmosphere of dedication speaks to my heart.
