Usually during the intervening period, the idols of Ashtavinayak are kept at the Link Apartments, where poojan is performed every day.
Today, at Shri Harigurugram, before the darshan commenced, Bapu spoke for a few minutes. He emphasized that we must always remember that God always loves us, no matter what sins we may have committed. He said that God has a plan for each of us and can execute only if we co-operate by chanting God’s name. He stressed upon the point that no matter what adverse situation we may find ourselves in; never ever think that God does not love us.
