Pranams to Acharyaji for expressing love for Maa Durga, with her talk, and later celebrations in a unique way, and my friends, lovely feeling to be with you all. Me being the senior most in the troupe had the first baby steps in dancing and simply loved it. --- Gopa Ray

In the Satsangh Pujya Vasudhaji explicated the emotion ‘fear’. Vasudhaji described fear as the greatest obstacle on the path of a spiritual seeker.
