After a very early breakfast and offering Mangala Arati to Swami, the entourage which included Dr Ravi Pillay and Brother Arvind Thiagarajan, a well known scientist from Bay Area, proceeded to the Boston Logan Airport to board their flight to San Francisco.
A six-and-a-half-hour flight across the other coast of North America, Swami’s entourage landed at San Francisco Airport and were driven straight to Saratoga, to the residence of Mr Divyogi and Mrs Bina Patel. The Patel family have been devotees for many decades, and have enjoyed Bhagawan’s love and abundant grace always. An hour’s drive from San Francisco Airport, Saratoga is a city in Santa Clara County, California. It is located on the west side of the Santa Clara Valley, directly west of San Jose, in the San Francisco Bay Area. The rugged mountains all around add a dramatic character to this beautiful area.
Upon arrival, Swami was received lovingly with Purna Kumbham, and snacks were served for all. Everyone retired for the evening after an early dinner.
