On the occasion of Janmotsav 2018, a Prabhat Pheri around the Kendra was organised by the devotees on January 5. The devotees chanted the name of Gurudeva and sang praises in his name while walking on the streets.The Prabhat Pheri lasted about half an hour. The devotees felt great joy while participating in the program.
A beautiful commemoration service including a special meditation session and bhajans was also held at the Kendra for the devotees. This was followed by Prasad distribution.
On Sunday, January 07, 2018, a medical camp was organised by the Kendra at Datoda Village. By Guruji’s grace, the camp was very successful. A team of five doctors (specialising in the fields of ENT, Orthopaedics, Gynaecology, Dentistry, Endocrinology), assisted by staff and volunteers examined and treated the patients, and distributed medicines to them.A total of around 190 patients availed of this opportunity. Further investigations were also suggested to those in need. This was the first medical camp organised by the Kendra.
