The day started with volunteers, Worker walks and workshop walls giving the final touch to the preparation of 2018 Meherabad Young Adult Sahavas at Hostel C. For the next 7 days Hostel C will house more than 100 young Baba lovers. To welcome the participants, distribute goodies such as schedule, registration, and tilak, various volunteers were assigned.
Participant registration was started at 2 pm after lunch, and so a celebration started. While volunteers were busy registering the new participants, music mandali started singing Baba songs, photography team begins taking pictures and tilak was applied to everyone after registration. Sahavases were welcomed with meticulous and curated preparation.
After registration, tea and snacks were served at 4 pm, after the snack break everyone gathered in the meeting hall. While music mandali sang bhajan and Baba songs, new sahavasees were invited to make a large garland for Baba's Samadhi. This garland was then offered to Baba Samadhi during 7 pm prayer time.
At 8 pm after aarti, everyone had a hearty dinner, and afterward, everyone gathered in front of Hostel C ground, for Dhuni lightning. Trustees were invited, along with Alan. Alan the resident chef of Meherabad, recited the Dhuni prayer. He also explained the history and meaning of the Dhuni prayer.
