Raasotsav - Shree Swaminarayan Temple Secaucus, New Jersey

On Saturday, August 5th, 2023, Shree Swaminarayan Temple - Secaucus NJ held a Raasotsav performed live by the Secaucus Temple disciples. Upon Acharya Swamiji Maharaj's arrival at Swamibapa Hall, two young disciples began energizing the crowd with an opening performance. Acharya Swamiji Maharaj proceeded to reside on the elevated rath.

Following the introductory performance, the disciples began the Raasotsav music set. The performance displayed over a handful of singers, a pianist, and multiple percussion instruments such as the dhol, drum set, and octopad. Over the next hour, sants and disciples performed raas and rejoiced in Lord Shree Swaminarayan's name. The performance continued uninterrupted with varying beats and speeds. The crowd was pleasantly entertained throughout the performance as well as Acharya Swamiji Maharaj, who was very endeared by the disciples performing and dancing. After the Raasotsav, sants led a sanedo, which brought back memories from past years when performing sanedo with Prem Murti Achara Swamishree Maharaj.
