Community people were dancing on the devotional beats. Addressing on this occasion Seer Pragyasagar said that the same ritual had been performed at the time of solemanising Diksha over him twenty five years back. The ritual is being repeated today. Man has to bear the consequences of sin and virtues which he practices throughout his life. Man does countless sins leading his life about which he is unaware. For getting salvation, one has to follow the path of devotion.
