The Official Proclamation was read by Deputy mayor Barbara Sexton Smith on behalf of Mayor Craig Greenberg, the Mayor of Loouisville, Kentucky.
Pujya Swami Chidanand Saraswati, president of Parmarth Niketan, Rishikesh, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, and Sadhvi Bhagawati Saraswati, along with Lieutenant governor Jacqueline Coleman, deputy chief of staff Keisha Dorsey, and several other spiritual leaders and dignitaries, participated in the event.
Pujya Swamiji expressed, “It is so sad that in India, some people are creating such negativity around Sanatan Dharma without realizing or understanding its value and depth, and yet here in America, in Louisville, Kentucky, we are celebrating the great declaration by the government of a day dedicated to Sanatan Dharma”.
