Shortly after arrival, the welcome function took place. Acharyashree, Yuvacharyashree, and Sadhvi Pramukhaji took their seats on stage in front of the huge gathering. Many dignitaries were present already, while others were about to arrive; all flocked to the assembly tent.

A local dignitary presented a brochure and a district map to Acharyashree where Tamkor with Acharyashree’s birthplace, its big Meditation Hall and Library has been added to the list of locations with special spiritual facilities. Meanwhile the number of people in the assembly tent continually increased.

People from close and remote areas attended the welcome function, not all were lucky enough to find some space for sitting down. Some areas were reserved for Sadhaks.

Acharyashree and Samani Pratibha Pragyaji, both were born in Tamkor. Therefore, members of the community had asked her to compere the function. For two hours she acted in this function, but due to language limitation, we are sorry to admit that we were not able to follow and therefore cannot report in detail.

We then decided to look for some notes in English language in the administrative tent, but did not succeed. Instead, we met very nice people and were invited to have tea with them. Thereafter, young students wanted us to autograph their books.

Free lunch for everybody

In a very crowded tent, free lunch was offered to everyone. We also queued and enjoyed the meal. Afterwards we hurried to our host’s house and took some rest.
