Ashad Vad Ekadashi, 4 th August 2021 marked the end of first year of our beloved Bapa’s will to withdraw His human darshan. Devotees around the world marked His first punyatithi.

At Shree Swaminarayan Temple Nairobi, devotees marked the event with divine memories of Acharya Swamishree Maharaj. After Sandhya aarti niyams, devotees performed kirtan bhakti, which our Prem Murti Bapa always adorned. This was followed by dhyan, video ashirwad, video darshan of His last visit to East Africa and dhoon. Prem Murti Bapa gave darshan seated on the Gadi adorned in flower garlands and mugat. On behalf of all the devotees, Poojari performed poojan and aarti to Prem Murti Bapa.

Students of Swamibapa Education Centre performed a short play which depicted the memories of our beloved Bapa. The play freshened the memories of His past visits to East Africa. They also performed a dance on the kirtan “Swami Mere Swami, Tuj bin raha nahi jae re”.

On this special day we seek blessings from Lord Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa to give us divine ability, strength and devotion to obey all the commands from Shree Swaminarayan Gadi.
