Acharya Swamishree Maharaj manifested just a short walk from Shree Swaminarayan Mandir Bharasar to the parents of Shamjibhai and Rambai.
In celebration of 81 years since Acharya Swamishree’s manifestation, the disciples of Shree Swaminarayan Mandir Bolton gathered on Sunday 28th May to celebrate His profound and indelible impact on all beings.
The programme began with Shahi Swagat where disciples held aloft Ved Ratna Acharya Swamishree in a palki, whilst young devotees carried abundant offerings as well as a celebration cake to the Lord. The celebrations continued with Poojan, Samuh Aarti and the congregation was blessed with His divine discourses.
The devotees of Shree Swaminarayan Mandir Bolton are incredibly fortunate to have previously celebrated this auspicious occasion numerous times in the presence of Acharya Swamishree Maharaj. On this day, we treasure the memories and unwavering affection He bestowed upon everyone during His 41 years as the Acharya of Shree Swaminarayan Gadi.
Prem Murti Bapa has given us all a truly profound legacy – a treasure trove of blissful teachings, episodes, memories and miracles, a mere glimpse of His divine history. He travelled extensively across the world to preach the values of the Faith and further spread the supreme tenets of the Lord, in the same way that His Guru Jeevanpran Swamibapa did.
