In the last three darshan sessions, Bhagavan has blessed three people with chains. On Sunday morning, He interacted for a while with the elders from the institutions at Muddenahalli and Alike, and blessed one of the gentlemen there with a chain. Later, that evening, just before accepting Arati, He called up a first-year student of the Brindavan campus who had earlier studied in the Music College here, and blessed him with a chain. And this evening, just before going to the interview room after sitting onstage for a while, Swami called up one of the students and after a short interaction, put a chain around his neck. It was 6 pm when Swami emerged from the interview room and came onstage to accept Arati.
