Shree Swaminarayan Mandir Kingsbury - Grand Opening - Music Show

In the evening of the 20th of August, upon completing sandhya aarti niyams in the mandir and enjoying dinner mahaprasad in Purushottram Mahal, thousands of disciples as well as community members gathered in Roe Green Park for an evening of kirtan-bhakti. The park had been transformed into a concert venue with a grand stage up front and thousands of seats arranged in front of it.

The performances featured disciples from Shree Muktajeevan Music Academy, world-renowned singer Firoz Ladka, and our talented sants singing an eclectic line-up of kirtans. Sants and disciples played a variety of musical instruments in accompaniment, and Sant Shiromani Shree Gurupriyadasji Swami, as master of ceremonies, provided delightful commentary throughout the evening. Performances included:

  • I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing – the young Children of Shree Muktajeevan Music Academy
  • Kaho Re Man Mera – Sadguru Shree Munibhushandasji Swami with Music Academy Chorus
  • Maine Shreeji Prabhuji Se Pyaar Kiya Hain– Sant Shiromani Shree Sarvagunalaydasji Swami with Music Academy Chorus
  • Aaj raho Rasiya – Sadguru Shree Munibhushandasji Swami with Music Academy Chorus
  • Swami O Swami Aapo Chho Pyaar – Sant Shiromani Shree Dharmavatsaldasji Swami with Music Academy Chorus
  • Bapashree O Bapashree – Sadguru Shree Munibhushandasji Swami and Firoz Ladka duet with Music Academy Chorus
  • Vhala Tari Murti Marmali Re – Sant Shiromani Shree Satyaprakashdasji Swami with Music Academy Chorus
  • Aavine Birajo Re – Firoz Ladka with Music Academy Chorus
  • Chatakti Chaal Manohar – Firoz Ladka with Music Academy Chorus
  • Tumko Sunke Chha Gayee – Firoz Ladka with Music Academy Chorus

Throughout the evening, an illuminating large LED screen backdrop displayed images of Lord Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa, Kingsbury Mandir, various occasions leading up to the Mahotsav, and Maninagar Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Sansthan’s history fitting to the lyrics and significance of the kirtans being sung.

During the final performance, Acharya Swamishree, much to the audience’s pleasure, joined all of the singers and instrumentalists on stage and danced until the end of the kirtan. He then blessed all of the evening’s performers, praising the singers, accompaniment and directors,  before departing the park for Kingsbury Mandir. This concluded the first day of Shree Swaminarayan Mandir Kingsbury Grand Opening Festival celebrations.
