Friday 18th March 2022 saw Fuldolotsav celebrations take place at Shree Swaminarayan Mandir Bolton, which was celebrated by the community participating in a Samuh Raas.

Fuldolotsav takes place on the day after Holi, when all over India these events are celebrated by spraying coloured water and powder over one another - representative of the beautiful spring flowers blossoming at this time of year. While there are many ‘paroksh’ myths, legends and histories behind this day, for disciples of the ‘pratyaksh’ Lord Shree Swaminarayan, this festival is all about defeating the internal enemies that would otherwise detract us from our devotion to the Lord.
