Vishwaguruji at Saint Sammelan in Varanasi
Upon arrival to India, Vishwaguruji travelled to Varanasi. Varanasi is always a divine meeting point for saints and so it was on this occasion in March too.
After one of the most beautiful Ganga Arati (prayers to Goddess Ganga) one can attend, on the bank of the Ganga in Varanasi, Vishwaguruji's group had darshan in Vishwanath Temple and in Kaal Bhairav Tempe.
Members of Shri Shankaracharya Literature Society and their president Shankaracharya Shankar Bharati organized a Sant Sammelan (summit of saints) at the Asi Guru Shankarachariyas Math in Varanasi and brought together many great Saints, Masters, Mahamandaleshwars and Swamis. Attending were Acharya Mahamandaleshwar of Mahanirvani Akhara, HH Vishokanand Bharatiji, Acharya Mahamandaleshwar of Atal Akhara, HH Vishweshwaranandaji and Acharya Mahamandaleshwar of Nirvani Akhara, HH Punyanandgiriji plus 30 Mahamandaleshwars and over 300 Swamis.
There were also many other meetings and discussions and whenever the saints come together pure joy and bliss is there. It was truly a blessed time, in one of the holiest places on earth, Varanasi.
