Srila Maharaja requested that everyone come together and have compassion for each other, instead of fighting over material designations such as skin color, nationality, or religion. After He spoke, there was a beautiful poem read by Chandrika dasi, and then more music and group chanting. The last part of the evenings program was a 7 course meal of maha-prasada and discussions of Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Maharaja's many books. Everyone enjoyed themselves.
