Sairam sisters and brothers,  

Had the good fortune of having Swami's darshan at Brindavan. Bhagwan , seated on a sofa with wheels, came on stage at about 8.15 a.m. and stayed through on the dias for 6-7 bhajans. Although a week-day, the hall was packed to capacity. All were delighted to have the coveted Darshan for nearly 20-25 minutes. In the past few days Swami has been giving darshans generally around 8.30- 8.45.a.m.On some occasions the darshan was short and on some days devotees would return disappointed if Swami did not come on stage till 9.00-9.30 a.m. 

On wednesday morning Swami sprung a very pleasant surprise by coming over at about 7.00 a.m. (All those Devotees who had taken for granted that Swami would come in only around 8.00-8.15 a.m. nearly missed His darshan ).It was the first day of the Brindavan campus and most of the boys were jerked into rapid action as news of Swami's arrival spread through the hostel. In the absence of stalwarts, some lucky singers presented short bhajans to the accompaniment of the duff ( none of the tabla players had made it to the scene of action). Good lesson for students and devotees !
