The evening began with an introductory documentary about the Sant Nirankari Mission. Thereafter, an alternate rhythm between euphonious devotional songs and speeches furthered the message of the Mission. A devotional song presented in English language drew the attendees to hum along and take part. Poetic Symposium was yet another special feature of the evening. Devotees presented their joy in the form of poetry and once again mesmerized the listeners.

Half way through the celebration, the prime event of the evening was presented. This was the well enacted timeline of the Nirankari Mission. A briefly scripted timeline was being narrated as volunteer devotees acted out the same. Viewers wholeheartedly applauded the performance and greatly appreciated the message of love and harmony it echoed. The final feature of the evening was a medley of celebratory songs that was going back and forth between two groups of ladies and gentlemen.

The event was also marked by the presence of a number of dignified members of the Guru Ravi Das temple. These guests showed keen interest toward the message of the Mission and showed equal privilege for being part of such celebration.
