Following Mangla Aarti, His Divine Holiness Acharya Swamishree was led on a horse-drawn chariot, by Shree Muktajeevan Pipe Band, along Bhulabhai Desai Road in a procession that concluded at Shree Swaminarayan Temple Mumbai.

Acharya Swamishree performed the Shodshopchar ceremony and Abhishek (ceremonial bathing) of the lotus feet of Shree Ghanshyam Maharaj, Jeevanpran Shree Abji Bapashree and Jeevanpran Shree Mutkajeevan Swamibapa, with gold flowers and coins, and diamonds. A vast array of lavish foods was then offered to the Lord, in the form of a grand annkut. Acharya Swamishree cut a cake to mark the 65th year since His manifestation, and offered it to the Lord, before the gathered disciples performed aarti.

Acharya Swamishree then conducted the Tula (ceremonial weighing) of Lord Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa, during which Murtis of Shree Ghanshyam Maharaj, Jeevanpran Shree Abji Bapashree and Jeevanpran Shree Mutkajeevan Swamibapa were weighed against diamond studded gold bullions.

On this truly auspicious occasion, the sants and disciples had the privilege of performing Abhishek to Acharya Swamishree, during which they showered Him with gold flowers and coins, and diamonds.

Procession of Purity

At approximately 3:30pm, His Divine Holiness Acharya Swamishree, sants, and all the disciples gathered at the sabha mandap where the Sadbhav Yatra (procession of purity) commenced. A helicopter showered the gathered crowd with fresh flowers to mark the start of the procession. After traveling along a 3km route, along which thousands of onlookers had the divine darshan of Lord Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa and Acharya Swamishree, the procession ended on Chowpatti beach at around 6:30pm.
