The disciples of Shree Swaminarayan Mandir Bolton, held a special day of prayers and scripture recitals on 16 August 2022, in commemoration and honour of Sadguru Shree Swasiddhcharandasji Swami who departed from this mortal world and became merged within the divine Murti of the Supreme Lord Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa during the morning of Samvat 2078 Chaitra Vad 12, Wednesday 27 April 2022. We all pray that the merciful Lord bestow greater and greater, divine bliss of the Murti to Sadguru Shree Swasiddhcharandasji Swami.
This was followed by Divine Ashirwad of Acharya Swamiji Maharaj, during which he explained the following:
Removing one's passion (Vasna) is very difficult. The method of removing this passion is to consider how much avarice one has for the five sensations; sound, touch, sight, taste and smell. We should have control of our body, senses and the mind. He explained that the means of controlling them is to abide by the rules of the Satsang, read and listen to religious discourses and meditation.
To please the Lord, we should grasp the opportunity to perform Seva of all forms (Taan, Maan, Dhaan) whenever we get a chance to do so, rather than hesitate.
The ultimate salvation (Atyantik Moksh) can only be attained at the shelter of Shree Swaminarayan Gadi and hence we should stay associated with this Karan Satsang.
The programme concluded with Dhoon, Chesta Niyams and Prasad.
