The joyous celebration of Guru Poornima in Barsana Dham, the US Ashram of Jagadguru Kripaluji Maharaj, began at 5:30am yesterday morning, and continued until the night, starting with dinner prasad at 5:30pm. The devotees at Barsana Dham made a phonecall to India to Jagadguru Kripaluji Maharaj before Satsang. After the phone call, the devotional program continued with Satsang at 7:30pm, concluding at midnight with everyone doing the arti.

The Guru Poornima program at Barsana Dham started with chanting of beautiful hymns in praise of Guru in the prayer hall, phonecall to Jagadguru Kripaluji Maharaj, followed by morning satsang at 6:30 am. A celebration dinner at 5:30pm followed by evening Satsang with special chanting and video of Jagadguru Kripaluji Maharaj. And everyone got to watch the first part of a new 5-part, subtitled video describing the greatness of "Guru Tattva".
