On March 12, 2017, we celebrated Holi Dhuleti & Bhagatji Maharaj’s Pragatyadin at the Parsippany PAL. This event celebrated and remembered the lives of Bhakt Prahlad and Bhagatji Maharaj who exemplified utmost faith and devotion towards Bhagwan. Prahlad’s submission to Bhagwan portrayed the triumph of good over evil as Bhagatji Maharaj’s life exposed the values and benefits of religious zeal and dedication.
We introduced our theme of the month – Holi: The Power of Bhajan. This theme was attributed to the lives of Bhakt Prahlad and Bhagatji Maharaj. Showing that Bhagwan takes care of those who take his ashro, the youths from various centers organized an exceptional bhajan sandhya.
His Divine Holiness Hariprasad Swami has touched the lives of countless individuals. He has instilled the same attributes, which Bhakt Prahlad and Bhagatji Maharaj possessed, in his own devotees.
Lastly, a video was played in where Swamiji explained the importance of remembering Bhagwan both in good & bad times. He left one key message – It is Bhagwan’s nature to save His devotee and to never let His devotee experience pain. This is a boon that has been passed along by Maharaj when he proclaimed “ jo mara haribhakt ne ek vichi nu dukh aava nu hoy toh karod vichi nu dukh mane thay, pan mara Hari bhagat ena thi rahit rahe.”
