Saturday 3rd September 2022 marked 43 years since our beloved Gurudev Jeevanpran Swamibapa willed to withdraw His human Darshan from this mortal world, in Bolton.

On this occasion of Swamibapa’s Punyatithi, devotees of Shree Swaminarayan Mandir Bolton held 30 minutes of Dhyaan – a form of worship that He was greatly fond of and continuously practised. The entire congregation sat in deep meditation as Jeevanpran Swamibapa described the beauty and splendour of each part of the Lord’s Divine Murti.

Following this, devotees did His Poojan and came for His Divine Darshan to seek blessings. Jeevanpran Swamibapa’s presence is always felt in this Karan Satsang as the Lord and His Satpurush’s never come or go. Today we still have the Divine Darshan of Jeevanpran Swamibapa & Acharya Swamishree Maharaj through our beloved Acharya Shree Jitendriyapriyadasji Swamiji Maharaj. 

A video darshan was then shown with a collection of extraordinary Leela’s from Jeevanpran Swamibapa’s time, such as the embodiment of Shree Swaminarayan Gadi – A paramount occasion for our Satsang. For the audience, this was a very proud moment as we will soon be celebrating a remarkable 50 Years of this - Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Suvarna Mahotsav from 19th – 25th Sept 2022 in Maninagar dhaam.
