Gurudev Jeevanpran Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa’s 114th manifestation day was celebrated at Shree Swaminarayan Mandir Maninagar, in the divine presence of Acharya Swamiji Maharaj on Wednesday 06 October 2021. After performing the Shangar Aarti of the Lord in the main Mandir, Acharya Swamiji Maharaj travelled to the Tower Mandir, from where a grand procession was held, led by Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa Pipe Band, India. Disciples carried various gifts to present at the lotus feet of Jeevanpran Swamibapa. The procession proceeded to the ground of the Mandir, where the main assembly had been held. One by one, the disciples came to the front of the stage with their offerings and presented them with Acharya Swamiji Maharaj to our Gurudev. Acharya Swamiji Maharaj adorned Jeevanpran Swamibapa with a grand, golden garland and moogat, before cutting the celebration cake.
Jeevanpran Swamibapa’s tula ceremony was then performed, during which He was ceremonially weighed against fresh flowers, coconuts, supari and sugar candy. This reminded disciples of the grand festivals held in 1957, 1967 and 1977, when Jeevanpran Swamibapa’s golden, platinum and diamond jubilees were held.
During His divine blessings, Acharya Swamiji Maharaj announced that in exactly 12 months, it will be 50 years since Gurudev Swamibapa gave a physical embodiment to Shree Swaminarayan Gadi. In accordance with the wishes of Ved Ratna Acharya Swamishree Maharaj, a magnificent 7 day festival, Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Suvarna Mahotsav will be held in the grounds of Maninagar Mandir, from Monday 19 September 2022 to Sunday 25 September 2022.
