Jeevanpran Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa, the founder of Maninagar Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Sansthan and the fourth spiritual successor to Lord Shree Swaminarayan, started a significant transformation within the Swaminarayan Faith. His teachings emphasized both humanitarian and religious duties, now embraced by all.
He preserved Lord Swaminarayan's pure philosophy, elucidated by Jeevanpran Shree Abji Bapashree, and revealed Jeevanpran Bapashree's true identity and ensured His legacy endures. Most notably, at Lord Shree Swaminarayan's command, Swamibapa physically manifested His divine throne in Akshardham, Shree Swaminarayan Gadi.
To celebrate the auspicious manifestation day of Jeevanpran Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa, disciples gathered at Mandir’s worldwide on Saturday October 14th. In Bolton, the program commenced with Sandhya Aarti and a welcoming ceremony for Swamibapa, where young males and females brought offerings. During the swagat, Swamibapa was ceremonially carried on a palkhi through the mandir. Devotees came forward one by one to offer items of adoration at the divine lotus feet of Jeevanpran Swamibapa. A celebration cake was cut and offered to the Lord on this special occasion. Following this, there was dhyaan, and the congregation received Swamibapa’s divine blessings. Lastly, disciples were given the opportunity to perform Aarti.
