Continuing with the immensely successful series of Jeevan Ghadtar Satsang Shibir series of events held throughout the world over the last two years, His Divine Holiness Acharya Swamishree inspired a similar event whilst presiding in London. The event took place on the evening of Thursday 24th August 2006.
With the imminence of Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa Shatabdi (Centenary) Mahotsav, this year’s event was based around the divine biographical episodes and achievements of our beloved Gurudev, Jeevanpran Swamibapa. Over 300 children took part in the event, which took weeks of preparation and revision: The participants were given packs containing religious material and references, on which the evening’s games, quizzes and challenges were based.
In addition to this material, all the participants of Jeevan Ghadtar Satsang Shibir London 2006 learnt the “Shree Hari Naad-vansh Namaashtak”, revealed by His Divine Holiness Acharya Swamishree during the recent “Supreme Lord Shree Swaminarayan Dvi-Shat-Rajat (Silver Bi-centenary) Mahotsav.” The evening’s events commenced with a prayer to Lord Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa and Acharya Swamishree, followed by the communal recital of these superlative verses.
Through a series of challenges and games, including: balloon races, arm wrestling, kirtan intros, identify-the-temple and name-the- sant, Shree Gopalanand Swamibapa Team triumphed over Shree Ramanand Swami Team in a taught final quiz.
Jeevan Ghadtar Satsang Shibir London 2006 concluded with everyone simultaneously performing Podhaniyaa (Resting) mansi-pooja.
