Swami Vishwananda's 'Dynamic Darshan'

As the numbers in the vast hall in Prague swelled and the Darshan proceeded in the usual fashion, with Swami Vishwananda seated at the front of the hall, suddenly Guruji got up and said "come I'll do the Darshan differently"

The two lines were told to part and turn to face each other. Then Guruji started giving Darshan standing up, walking from person to person in the line. With him went an entourage carrying everything Guruji needed including Chandan, Vibhuti, Sweets and towel. 

Not only was Guruji able to give the Darshan blessing more quickly and comfortably but it seemed different. Even Guruji himself commented on how nice the Darshan felt; 

Everyone commented on how much they enjoyed then new Darshan style especially as Swamiji was in different parts of the hall and was closer to people.

At the following event in Bratislava Swamiji did the "Dynamic Darshan" again and strongly hinted that he might do it regularly, especially when there are very large numbers of people

Later we learnt that Guruji prayed to Krishna for a different way to do Darshan so there was less pressure on his back, "then the idea just flashed before me" Guruji said later.
