His Divine Holiness Acharya Swamishree Maharaj's 73rd birthday was celebrated on Saturday 30th May 2015 at Shree Swaminarayan Mandir Bolton. Acharya Swamishree was welcomed by a devotional dance performance and was led to the grand stage decorated beautifully with handcrafted swans. Young disciples enlightened us by speaking in Gujarati about various episodes of His Divine Holiness Acharya Swamishree's childhood.
Kirtans (devotional songs) were sung by sants and disciples. The entire congregation applauded and were magnetised by the events that were unfolding. The ambience was electrifying. The magnificent multi tier cake was cut by Acharya Swamishree which was closely followed by the poojan ceremony. To mark the end of a spectacular evening, disciples were blessed by His Divine Holiness Acharya Swamishree as everyone presented various gifts.
