OM Love in the Sky Above Mother Center

The above photo was taken on Thursday of Convocation, 2004. Devotees, many whom have served all week, serve to take down the tents, move chairs and other activities at Mother Center after the pilgrimages end. After the activities were completed, there was a service in the chapel. After the service, as devotees were leaving, this appeared in the sky. It was also above the Bonaventure. Originally it said "MOM" with a heart. Mom... Divine Mother, Sri Daya Mata... our own mothers... all mothers...
