Group and individual meditation and energization exercises were done routinely on all the days.

These 3 days were spent in Anand Shikhar by Swamiji repeating, reminding and reinforcing the importance of devotion in our spiritual journey. This was brought about by many different and wonderful ways. Every day’s morning meditation started with the recital of one chapter of the Bhagavad Gita.
