A group of 5 students came from Houston and Boston and six students from My Home Jewel, Hyderabad to perform Sri Vishnu Sahasranama Avadhanam. Audience were awestruck by the verbal, memory feats of the kids. Vysaradi Ji, Sathya ji, and Santhi ji trained them under the directions of HH Sri Swamiji. Vysaradi ji conducted avadhanam very efficiently under various categories. The devotees asked for the sloka of a particular number and the number for a sloka; sloka by giving the first word or the last word, 4 slokas starting from a particular sloka skipping a particular number of slokas in between, preceding or following it like – when devotees asked for slokas 45+4 they said 45, 49, 53, 57 slokas and for 45-4 they chanted 45, 41, 37, 33 slokas, immediately.
