Shree Swaminarayan Gadi is eternal, just as Lord Shree Swaminarayan is eternal. Shree Swaminarayan Gadi is the throne that Lord Shree Swaminarayan Presides upon in Akshardham in; the lustre from His Murti takes the form of a Gadi, as stated in the Vachanamrut scripture. On 31st December 1801 CE, the Lord revealed His true name, Swaminarayan; He also said that the throne that He was sitting on would now be called Shree Swaminarayan Gadi. In 1972, Jeevanpran Swamibapa gave physical embodiment to Shree Swaminarayan Gadi. To celebrate 50 years since this momentous and auspicious event, Acharya Shree Jitendriyapriya Swamiji Maharaj has inspired a grand festival to take place in Maninagar, Ahmedabad, India from 19th -25th September 2022.
