After Kumbh Mela in India & at Shree Peetha Nilaya

Swami Vishwananda was in Varanasi and went to Calcutta from there.

At the same time, in Springen, we had the building authorities here who did a final check of all the fire protection works we have been preparing over the course of the last 3 years. Here we see Reka answering all the questions of the authorities.

She led the authorities through the building and explained everything which was done.

Sabarish showed them the "Brandmeldezentrale" ("fire control unit"), they did test alarms, activated the whole alarm system, and went through and around the whole building.

As you can see, the checks went very well (!!!)
--- but there is still some paperwork and certifications which have to be completed.

Finally: from now on, the fire alarm is working, and in case there is an alarm - we have to leave the building directly and the fire brigade from different villages will be on their way to the centre.

As soon as Swamiji heard about this positive final acceptance of the construction work, and saw the pictures above, he shouted loudly in the middle of the airport in Varanasi: "Hari Bol"!!! :-)
