On Saturday September 19th 2009, the disciples of Shree Swaminarayan Temple London celebrated Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa’s 102nd manifestation day.
To begin the celebrations, disciples carried Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa on a palanquin from behind the main hall, around the side and into the front of the temple. The procession was led by Shree Muktajeevan Pipe Band. Many young disciples carried a variety of fruits and nuts and other offerings to please the Lord.
Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa's murti was then adorned with a crown and shawl beautifully decorated and made entirely of fresh flowers.
Disciples cut the celebration cakes to offer to the Lord on this special occasion.
Disciples then offered dhotis to Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa then everyone performed aarti.
After aarti, the congregation listened to Acharya Swamishree's divine ashirward. A video documentary showing Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa giving Ashirwad, and various video clips from the platinum tula celebrations, and the ground breaking first visit that Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa made to Nairobi Kenya was then shown. Earlier this year, Acharya Swamishree was honoured and welcomed by the members of the house of parliament in Westminster, London. Here, the English translation of the Vachnamrut Sah Rahaysyarat Pradeepika Tika was released in the UK. The DVD of this ceremony together with speeches from dignatries and honoured guests was then shown.
The celebration concluded with everyone being served cake and maha-prasad.
