Love in motion: Feeding the poor on Bhakti Diwas (New Year 2013)

New Year daawat (feast) by our beloved Shree Maharajji, Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj, took place at Bhakti Dham Mangarh, yesterday (December 1st). More than 120 types of dishes were on display, in a party which includes most types of sweets, all types of roti, naan, snacks, fastfoods, vegetables, all flavour of icecream and cold drinks and many other delicious treats. A similar party is also taking place today (December 2nd) by our beloved Didis (the pending Chrismas party). Since Jan 1st 2011, Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj has renamed this day as Bhakti Diwas, thus making this festivity a spiritual one, in which every devotee should assess their devotion to God and Guru and aim to increase it. Here are a few glimpses of love and devotion in motion; feeding the poor villagers from Mangarh and surrounding areas:

There was so much food, it was hard to decide what to eat first!

The queues were long, but with the help of the JKP volunteers, everyone was served quickly

Couldn't get the food down fast enough! Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj has an expression for this which translates as "eat the liquid, drink the food"!

Stunned by all the food!

Still eating!
