    Later in the town of Anand, a special prayer and satsang was held for individual and social peace. “Lakshmi comes only where there is cleanliness, hence we should have clean hearts and clean surroundings. We wish to do a lot but the lack of potential and time, results in stress. Stress is extremely contagious and spreads in society, fostering discontent. We lose our belongingness in society and this in turn, fosters corruption and lack of trust. Only spirituality can foster human values and weed out the ills from our society.”

Urging the youth to play a role in nation building, Sri Sri encouraged the gathering to stand up against corruption and focus on environmental conversation.  Sri Sri said, “Gujaratis have spread across the globe and with them, vegetarianism and our culture has to spread as well.

Indian spirituality is the best way to building a holistic personality, nurturing capability to think and act right.”

    The next day, Sri Sri also interacted with Art of Living volunteers before he left for the Ider village in Rajkot.
