Following their meeting, prayers for national peace and harmony were offered by the recital of the Vedic Shanti Path.

Shah, who is currently in Gujarat where a two-phase election began on Thursday (1), performed a pujan of Shri Aksharpurshottam Maharaj and Param Pujya Mahant Swami Maharaj.

Swamishri blessed Shah by applying a chandan chandlo to his forehead, and prayed for peace, progress and welfare of the nation and its people — for a Strong India and One India.

Brahmavihari Swami updated the minister about the upcoming month-long Pramukh Swami Maharaj Shatabdi Mahotsav in Ahmedabad, and gave him a special invitation.

Shah was particularly pleased to know that the festival is being organised on 600 acres in Ahmedabad, set up by over 80,000 volunteers.
