On the second day, the chanting of the Guru Gita was followed by a powerful guided meditation on Lord Narayana led Sri Swami Vishwananda.

And on the third day the theme of Sri Swami Vishwananda guided meditation was very touching and comforting - the Lotus Feet of the Guru inside our hearts.

During this Babaji Celebrations 2014, it's been an unique experience to have the opportunity to practice Atma Kriya Yoga in the presence of Sri Swami Vishwananda, in particular after listening to his voice chanting the Guru Gita and guiding us into a deep meditation.
