Babuji Maharaj' Birth Anniversary Celebrations

Installation of Beloved Babuji Maharaj's Statue


Respected Elders, Dear Sisters and Brothers,

We are a little less than two months away from celebrating the birth anniversary of Pujya Shri Babuji Maharaj. Most of our members are familiar with the venue, which will once again be Kanha Shanti Vanam, Hyderabad. This grand celebration will begin with evening meditation on 29th April 2016, and will conclude with morning meditation on 1st May.

I must seek your cooperation in registering early enough in order to prevent guessing games as to how many will participate. During the Basant bhandara we prepared generously, though up until the last week we had no exact count. Moreover, the local abhyasis did not make use of the residential facilities and, on top of that, their hospitality spilled over to accommodate their friends and relatives in their homes, which left our well-prepared tents empty. So, this time, if you are not going to use the facilities offered at the site, please specify that you will not need onsite accommodation.

We sincerely request you to ONLY register yourselves if you are absolutely sure that you will participate in the bhandara. This will help us avoid under-preparation or over-preparation with the tents and other purchases needed for an event of such magnitude.

We cannot request non-registrants to return back from the venue; this would defeat the purpose of our celebration. But we do expect the courtesy of registering yourself for the occasion. Your simple gesture can help us save money in crores.

Let us come together in the spirit of love and unity, and celebrate the 117th birth anniversary of the Special Personality, Pujya Shri Babuji Maharaj.

With love and respect,

Kamlesh D. Patel
3rd March 2016, Manapakkam
