Wednesday 31st Augusts marked the final sabha during Acharya Swamiji Maharaj’s 2022 vicharan of UK and North America. After 75 days since leaving India, Bapa returns to Maninagar on Thursday 1st September. Despite only small portion of His Vicharan taking place in London this year, He leaves some indelible memories for the Kingsbury Mandir community, including the golden anniversary of Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa Pipe Band, and the first Patosav in three years in the divine physical presence of an Acharya of Shree Swaminarayan Gadi.
The final sabha included Acharya Swamiji Mahraj showering His divine blessings on everyone, where He emphasised the importance of understanding the true magnificence and greatness of God - who is beyond description and comprehension – that leads to an adherence to His commands and good, moral behaviour, which in turn results in us achieving our ultimate goal of residing in the Lord’s blissful Murti. Of course, He took this final opportunity to again personally invite each and every individual to the magnificent festival, Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Suvarna Mahotsav, which commences in just a few weeks’ time.
On this occasion, senior members of the Shree Kutchi Leva Patel (SKLP) Samaj UK’s managing committee and trustees came for the darshan of Acharya Swamiji Maharaj, including their President, Shri Mavjibhai Dhanji Vekaria. The evening concluded with everyone having the darshan of Acharya Swamiji Maharaj.
Acharya Swamiji Maharaj departed Shree Swaminarayan Mandir Kingsbury, along with the Mandal of remaining Sants, early on Thursday 1st September, and arrived at Heathrow Airport shortly after. Disciples who had gathered at the airport to see off Bapa, had their final darshan of His vicharan in the UK, before He departed for India.
