Acharya Swamiji Maharaj Arrives in Bolton & Swagat Ceremony
His Divine Holiness Gnan Mahodadhi Acharya Shree Jitendriyapriyadasji Swamiji Maharaj and a mandal of Sants arrived in Bolton on Tuesday 13th June 2023 to fulfil the spiritual desires of His devotees residing here for His third UK vicharan.

Upon His arrival, the welcoming ceremony was preceeded by a swagat led by Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa Pipe Band Bolton. The Band gave their salutations and led Him through the forecourt of the Mandir where hundreds of disciples had gathered – eagerly awaiting His divine darshan. It is a greatly anticipated day for many, as seen by the Mandir teeming with joyous disciples ready to begin the 2023 UK vicharan.


Acharya Swamiji Maharaj was adorned by garlands and ceremonially welcomed into the Mandir by Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa Pipe Band Bolton, who guided Him along an elegantly decked walkway in the direction of the Sinhasan.


A group of young dancers then produced a splendid devotional Swagat nrutya to please the Lord, after which eminent sants led the sabha with dhoon and niyams. All members of the men’s sabha had the opportunity to personally have the darshan of Acharya Swamiji Maharaj, before the congregation concluded.
