The evening of the second day of Bolton Suvarna Mahotsav began with Sandhya Aarti Niyams, Kirtan Bhakti and Acharya Swamiji Maharaj’s Divine Ashirwad.
In His Ashirwad, Swamiji Maharaj highly commended the Kirtans written by Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa in the Divine ‘Harignanamrut Kavya’. One of the first Kirtans written by Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa is ‘Aaje to Shreeji Pragat Bhagwan’. He stated that this Kirtan, will always describe the omni presence form of Lord Swaminarayan, whether it is being sung in the past, present or future. Swamiji Maharaj explained that all the Kirtans in the ‘Harignanamrut Kavya’ immerse us into the Pragat and Pratyaksha Murti of Lord Swaminarayan. Only someone who is experiencing this bliss by being one with the Lord’s murti can compile such remarkable Kirtans i.e. Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa.
The evening’s event continued with a musical drama performance titled ‘Shree Swaminarayan Gadi No Adbhut Mahima’ (The Incredible Greatness of Shree Swaminarayan Gadi). The act was a summary of some of the key events from our Holy Scripture, Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Granth. Episodes from the time of Shree Ramanand Swami and how He passed on the helm of Karan Satsang to Lord Shree Swaminarayan and thereafter to each of the Acharya’s of Shree Swaminarayan Gadi, until the embodiment of Shree Swaminarayan Gadi, were enacted in this musical drama. The entire congregation were captivated by this performance. As the drama concluded, Acharya Swamiji Maharaj joined the performers on stage to give His darshan as they all danced around Him to conclude the night.
Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa encouraged His devotees to partake in such religious dramas to convey spiritual knowledge to the society in an effective manner. There were over 120 devotees, young and old, who either performed in it or assisted with it’s compilation. Thanks to all the hard work of performers, directors, producers, script-writers, costume designers, and stage and crew members. We seek blessing from Lord Swaminaraynabapa Swamibapa, to keep inspiring us to impart knowledge onto future generations.
