His Divine Holiness Acharya Swamishree Maharaj has recently taken on an illness, which curtailed His tour of East Africa, and He has since returned to India to be under the observation of doctors in Mumbai. As those receiving the daily updates on His health will know, He is making good and steady progress in His return to full health – the Lord is heading the prayers of disciples the world over.
In every Mandir of Maninagar Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Sansthan around the world, daily prarthna, dhoon and dhyan assemblies are being held to pray to Lord Shree Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa, for Acharya Swamishree Maharaj’s speedy recovery.
The students of Swamibapa Gujarati School at Shree Swaminarayan Mandir Kingsbury personified their prayers to the Lord, and well-wishes to Acharya Swamishree Maharaj, in the form of “get well soon” cards. Each student lovingly made a hand-made card, containing his or her heartfelt prayer and sentiments, and placed it at the lotus feet of the Lord. The display will remain until Acharya Swamishree Maharaj is discharged from hospital.
Acharya Shree Jitendriyapriyadasji Swamiji Maharaj is the current spiritual leader of Maninagar Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Sansthan. He is the heir to Acharya Shree Purushottampriyadasji Swamishree Maharaj, and sixth in the lineage of ascetic Acharyas, which descends directly from Lord Shree Swaminarayan.
