It was a day of celebration. A day of joy. A long awaited day. It was the arrival day of World Peace Leader, HDH Acharya Swamishree Maharaj. Glittering like a bright star on a dark night, He was elegantly seated on a chariot pulled by young devotees.
It was a significant moment. The 31st vicharan of HDH Acharya Swamishree Maharaj to Kenya. It was a time of great fulfilment. Devotees gathered in large numbers to welcome Him when they heard that He was coming to Nairobi. Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa Pipe Band spiced up the occasion by playing some mind soothing musical tunes. Ladies carried traditional urns ad sang kirtans to give Him a ceremonial welcome.
He was led to the temple hall, where He performed the aarti of Lord Swaminarayan after which HDH Acharya Swamishree Maharaj accepted the prayers of devotees and sat on the Gadi and each devotee had the golden opportunity for His divine darshan.
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.
