The Gita & Dancing Darshan

Well, there are many kinds of Darshans...yesterday evening the people who had registered for the cancelled Darshan and accepted Sri Swami Vishwananda's invitation to attend the Gita Course, after 19:00h, received a special blessing.
As He has said many times, “There are no coincidences.” So, for sure there were people sincerely wishing in their hearts to have the opportunity to listen to Him explaining about the Gita, but for several reasons couldn't enrol in the course. Therefore, Sri Swami Vishwananda fulfilled their wishes and welcomed them saying, “Jai Gurudev everybody! To all who have come right now, we are on the verse 34 of the Chapter 10 of the Gita. So through the Grace of the Lord you'll have nine verses. That's good! You'll profit from these nine. Bhagavan Krishna said, ‘The one who hears even only one verse from one chapter will get good punya (merit).’ Even if it doesn't make much sense for you, just bear Lord Krishna in your mind, surrender to the Guru's Feet, feel with your heart and you'll profit from it. Even if the mind doesn't make you understand, just close your eyes and absorb it.”
After His commentary, Sri Swami Vishwananda gave another special blessing while singing bhajans and dancing enthusiastically with everybody!

And at the end of the event, after the Gita Arati He showered all with His countless blessings of Love and Mercy through a few minutes of silent meditation.
“It was a wonderful night, a wonderful evening! It's the first time for me [listening to the Gita]. So, I cried for two hours [laughing]. So it is very wonderful! And tonight for sure it will be the same.” - Cliven, Cudrefin, Switzerland.
“ When I knew that the Darshan had been cancelled and that I could come for the Bhagavad Gita, I was so happy when I arrived and saw Swami, because I wanted to see him for one month. And listening to him speaking about the Bhagavad Gita, it is a big gift that he gives to us! - Roshnee, Strasbourg, France.
