After breakfast, the merciful Lord blessed the entourage which also included Dr Ram Setty and his devout wife Smt Usha, and Smt Shyamini Pillay and son Brother Kabilan from Singapore, to go for shopping, or ‘Marketing’ in His words. Everyone returned in the afternoon, all set for the final Satsang of the glorious trip.
In the evening, about 30 devotees had gathered, and after Bhajans, Swami beckoned Mr Bob Bozzani to speak from his heart to the gathering. Mr Bozzani was quick to say that what emanates from his heart is love. He spoke about his first visit to Prasanthi Nilayam in 1974, and the very first interview which Swami had granted to his group of 30 devotees. When Mr Bozzani walked out of the interview room, he told his wife “This is God, and I am staying back here.” He thanked Swami for opening His heart even today.
Thereafter, Swami proceeded to the ocean side to view the beautiful sunset, and also clicked group pictures with everyone. Truly, a memorable evening for all! Swami returned for dinner, and retired for the night, while the entourage packed to leave the United States, back to Bangalore, the next morning.
It was an early morning for everyone, and all the devotees had gathered to bid a fond farewell to the Lord. Swami blessed some of the devotees with their much cherished interviews, and after Arati, Swami’s entourage proceeded to the Los Angeles Airport to board their flight, and thus ended an amazing three-week trip to Canada and the United States.
