The young devotees of our Sanstha organised a friendly internal volleyball tournament that consisted of four teams with people of different ages. The first three matches took place on three consecutive days. The first was played on the 28th of December 2002. The remainder of the matches were played during the subsequent days. The finals were on the 5th of January where team B and team C were 1st and 2nd runners up respectively.
During the match, there was a strong wind blowing and at times it rained as well. However, this was not enough to dampen the delight of the players. Their only aim was to please Lord SwaminarayanBapa Swamibapa and Acharya Swamishree.
After the match, all the players who played in the tournament garlanded Acharya Swamishree and received His divine blessings. To remember this special Golden Jubilee Tournament, Acharya Swamishree presented trophies to all who took part, after which prasad was distributed to all present.
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.
