Patotsav   Vicharan 

Shree Swaminarayan Temple - California 7th Patotsav

His Divine Holiness Acharya Swamishree and sants completed their United States West Coast vicharan from July 5, 2019 through July 11, 2019. From the evening of Friday, July 5 through the morning of Tuesday, July 9, His Divine Holiness Acharya Swamishree and sants toured the Los Angeles and San Diego areas of the state of California. Acharya Swamishree then flew to Arizona, which is one of the states adjacent to Southern California, on a private jet. From the evening of Tuesday, July 9 through the morning of Thursday, July 11, Acharya Swamishree and sants toured the Phoenix and Scottsdale areas of Arizona. 

During their West Coast vicharan, Acharya Swamishree and sants performed padhramanis at the homes and businesses of disciples, while spreading the supreme divine philosophy and glory of Lord Shree Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa and Shree Swaminarayan Gadi. 

Acharya Swamishree also performed the 7th Patotsav ceremony of Lord Shree Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa at Shree Swaminarayan Temple – Van Nuys, California, on Sunday, July 7, 2019. The Patotsav celebrations took place over two days – Saturday, July 6 through Sunday, July 7, with samuh parayan, shodshopchar poojan, Acharya Swamishree’s divine blessings, and several displays of love and devotion from the disciples of the West Coast.

Each year, Acharya Swamishree tours North America, but due to the vastness of the continent, He is not always able to visit the West Coast. The humble disciples of the West Coast were graced to have Acharya Swamishree’s presence this year, and they are forever grateful for the blessings Acharya Swamishree has showered upon them, as well as the memories he has instilled within their hearts.
