The whole village wore a festive look to welcome Sri Swamiji. Flowers were offered throughout Sri Swamiji’s path, as He walked to the place where Mahamantra Kirtan happens in the village. Sri Swamiji spoke on the life of Thondaradipodi Azhwar to bring out the glory of Nama Sankirtan.

Many devotees from each village were introduced to Mahamantra.  Devotees stopped at a village for lunch, where our GOD satsang member, Sri ‘Namaji’ Ramachandran gave a short lecture on the glory of Nama and the importance of spreading it to others.
A Nama torch which was lit at Ambur was carried throughout the procession.  The procession reached Hanuman temple in Gudiyatham at around 6:30 pm.

As the procession entered the hall amidst Nadaswaram music and Mahamantra chants, devotees, danced in enthusiasm.  Sri Swamiji received the Nama torch from Sri Kumaresan of Ambur, who spearheaded this Nama-Yatra.  Sri Kumaresan and Sri Mohankumar of Ambur satsang were blessed by Sri Swamiji for their selfless service in Nama Prachar.
7:00 – 9:00 pm:
The Mass prayer started off in the Asthika Samaj grounds which was packed with devotees. Sri Swamiji in his discourse, spoke about the life and works of the great Tamil Saints, Tirunavukkarasar, Tirugnanasambandar, Sundarar, Thirumoolar, Arunagirinathar, Sekkizhaar, Abhirami Bhattar, Thirumangai Azhwar and Andal. He explained the true import of statements in tamil like ‘Alayam thozhuvadhu salavum nandru’, ‘kaatrulla podhe tootrikkol’, ‘uruppadudal’, ‘undu-illai’, ‘adi udhavuvadu pol annan udhava maattan’ etc. He then touched on the life of Bhadrachala Ramadas from Andhra Desha to show how Lord Rama came as Yogi to his house and revived his dead son, after they performed Rama Nama Kirtan.  He spoke about the life and works of Purandaradasa, to show the simplicity and significance of Krishna Nama.  Quoting Thiagaraja Kritis ‘chakkani raja…’, ‘rama nee evaru…’ etc., Sri Swamiiji brought out the glory of the Rama Nama.  Then Sri Swamiji spoke on the dreadful Kali and its ill-effects and spoke about the significance of the “Hare Rama..” Mahamantra in this Kali Yuga.  Then all the devotees performed a silent prayer for a few minutes followed by Mahamantra Kirtan led by Sri Swamiji, accompanied with thunderous clapping of hands.  The venue situated in the arterial road of the town next to the bus stand was not only full, but was brimming with devotees, who stood all around the ground and outside – on the roads, to take part in the mass prayer.  Later, kumkum prasad was distributed to all the devotees.
