Knowledge is imparted faster and effectively when conveyed in pictorial or action form – as the saying goes Action speaks louder than words.
Drama performance is one such way to convey religious knowledge to the society in a fast and effective manner. Hence the reason why Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa encouraged His devotees to perform religious dramas.
On 16 th January 2022, students from Swamibapa Education Centre performed a religious drama entitled “Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Embodiment” and won the hearts of the entire congregation. It was a wow performance by the students of Swamibapa Education Centre- Nairobi. Thanks to the Grace of Lord Shree Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa and the hard work put in by teachers and parents of the
The drama was a summary of all the chapters in our Holy Scripture Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Granth. Episodes from times of Ramanand Swami and how He passed on the helm of Karan Satsang to Lord Shree Swaminarayan Bhagwan and thereafter to each of the Acharya of Shree Swaminarayan Gadi, until the embodiment of Shree Swaminarayan Gadi were displayed in the drama. Shree Swaminarayan Gadi was lowered down from the roof of the temple hall to emphasize that this is the same throne upon which Lord Swaminarayan is seated upon in His Akshardhaam.
The drama was so well performed that even someone new to the topic can easily follow and understand the theme of the drama. Various dances were performed in between the performance amid loud cheers and applause from the congregation. The costumes, acting, actions and the energy displayed by the participants was just outstanding. About 75 students from Swamibapa Education Centre participated in the drama.
Acharya Shree Jitendriyapriyadasji Swamiji Maharaj blessed all the participants and gave them divine Prasad at the end of the performance.
