Saturday 24th January 2015 marked the 189th anniversary of Shikshapatri, the gift of Holy Commandments from Lord Swaminarayan.
Acharya Swamishree performed Mangla Aarti at 6.00am and soon after a mini procession was held from Swamibapa Hall to the main temple hall. Devotees carried holy urns decorated with flowers and mango leaves as the rest sang Vasant Panchmi kirtans. Poojan was performed to the Holy Scripture after which devotees collectively recited the commandments. This was done concurrently with Acharya Swamishree and sant mandal.
At the end of the recital Acharya Swamishree showered Gulal prasad upon the devotees and blessed them with popcorn prasad.
