The ceremony was performed by Her Holiness by a cut in the ground. This information was given by Mohinder Singh Sanyojak Branch Chandigarh. 
Mohinder Singh said that Lakhs of devotees of the Sant Nirankari Mission from all over India and abroad are expected to attend the 3-day Samagam from November 19 to 21, 2016, which will be dedicated to the memory of Baba Hardev Singh Ji Maharaj with the theme–A Tribute to Humanness. The tented township spread over more than 400 acres of land will have all the necessary amenities like water supply, electricity, sewerage, etc. Besides Langar there will be canteens to provide tea, coffee and snacks at subsidized rates. The huge Satsang Pandal will be surrounded by offices, publication stalls, etc.
Addressing the Sewa Dal volunteers and other devotees, Satguru Mata Ji said that over the years Baba Hardev Singh Ji Maharaj has given a beautiful lay out to the Samagam. If we act upon the same, the coming Samagam will become all the more beautiful.
Satguru Mata Ji said that as often stated by Baba Ji, no Sewa is big or small. We have only to perform it with the spirit of selfless service. We have to keep our sense of ego or ‘I’ away and perform the duty whatever is assigned to us. Baba Ji himself donned the Sewa Dal uniform and served selflessly for years together. Satguru Mata Ji pointed out that many devotees are already taking part in preliminary preparations. It is not a small thing to find them working without caring for their own domestic responsibilities, comforts etc., particularly when we find the feelings of selfishness so prevalent in the world outside. Let us make every effort to make all arrangements beautiful so that devotees coming from outside find their stay comfortable.
