The fully packed Hall of devotees were enthralled with the super Nama Sankeertana of Pujya Sri Swamiji. The whole Hall was having the divine vibration which every one of the devotees present was experiencing. People were transported to different world where they did not see anything except Pujya Sri Swamiji’s glorious image. The Nama Sankeertana session was unbelievable to say the least. Sri Swamiji was so happy with the hall acoustics and He declared that Sachchidananda hall is nothing but a recording studio.
