Following the amazing Shree Swaminarayan Mandir Kingsbury Grand Opening Festival, the official opening of Shree Purushottam Mahal and trips to the USA and Manchester, where Acharya Swamishree Maharaj showed multitudes of people the glory of Lord SwaminarayanBapa Swamibapa and the great works that he can inspire, the time unfortunately came for Acharya Swamishree to depart the shores of the United Kingdom.
Early on Tuesday 9th September, 2014, Acharya Swamishree performed Mangla aarti to Lord SwaminarayanBapa Swami Bapa in the magnificent Golden Sinhasan in Kingsbury mandir for the last time on this visit to London. Following this he provided darshan to the hundreds of disciples that had attended the aarti. The majority of the sant mandal and disciples travelling to India with Swamishree left for the airport at 6:30am; but Acharya Swamishree remained behind to do final darshan to the sinhasan murti and once more give darshan to the disciples that had come to bid him farewell. There was a tangible sense of sadness amongst the disciples that this epic visit had finally come to an end and that this was the last darshan they would receive on this visit.
At 6:45am, Acharya Swamishree and the remaining sants also left for the airport. On arrival the party went straight through to flight side of the airport to await their flight. At 9:03am, Acharya Swamishree Maharaj’s flight took off for the long journey back to Maninagardham, to once again set eyes upon Shree Ghanshyam Maharaj and provide darshan to the disciples that had missed him for the last few months.
