In celebration of the 8th Patotsav (anniversary of the installation of the divine Murtis of Lord Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa) of Shree Swaminarayan Temple London, a three-day scripture recital was held in the divine presence of His Divine Holiness Acharya Swamishree Purushottampriyadasji Maharaj. The festivities took place between Friday 22nd and Sunday 24th August 2008.
A new ‘drummers fan fair’ was performed on the second day by the Drumming Corps of Shree Muktajeevan Pipe Band and students of Shree Mukatjeevan Dhol Academy. The fusion of Indian dhol beats with Scottish snares and tanners perfectly epitomised the harmony that exists between disciples from the Temple and the local community, and symbolised the integration of the congregation’s traditional values with western culture.
The recital of the Vachanamrut scripture was then concluded on the third day as members of Shree Muktajeevan Pipe Band offered chhaabs of gifts to Lord Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa. Acharya Swamishree showered His divine ashirwad on the 1400-strong congregation, before the three-day festival concluded with everyone taking a consecrated lunch
