    Shree Swaminarayan Temple - Delaware Murti Pratishtha Mahotsav & Diamond Tula

    The beautiful murti of Shree Harikrushna Maharaj was seated upon a miniature throne on one side of the scale. Acharya Swamishree and sants then placed sugar crystals (saakar) on the other side of the scale. The tick mark on the scale slowly began to change position as the weight of the sugar crystals increased to one kilogram. Finally, when the weight of the sugar crystals surpassed the physical weight of Shree Harikrushna Maharaj’s murti, the side of the scale with His idol ascended higher than the other, and there were cries of joy all around. Acharya Swamishree and sants spun the scale around for the entire audience to have the divine darshan of Harikrushna Maharaj’s idol during the Tula. In a similar manner, Shree Harikrushna Maharaj was then weighed against one kilogram of silver, gold, and platinum in the form of bars and coins. Each time the scale tipped from one side to the other, there were ecstatic cries of joy from all over.
