Wed 17 Aug 2022

The highly devout Sant and Eminent Sadguru, Shree Swasiddhcharandasji Swami departed from this mortal world and became merged within the divine Murti of the Supreme Lord Shree Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa during the morning of Wednesday 27 April 2022 (Samvat 2078 Chaitra Vad 12). During Acharya Swamiji Maharaj’s recent vicharan, special prayers and scripture recitals have taken place in commemoration and honour of Sadguru Shree Swasiddhcharandasji Swami. 

Since 1965, Swami served as Mahant (head) of Shree Swaminarayan Mandir in Bhuj, diligently looking after the Mandir and its administrative affairs. This sewa spanned a remarkable 57 years. Sankhya Yogi Bashree Samjuba also recently departed this world, and her devotion and dedication to the Satsang were too also a source of inspiration to us all.    

On Monday 20th June 2022, a special assembly was held at Shree Swaminarayan Mandir Kingsbury to honour both eminent, ardent, and recently departed disciples. Both had devotedly, loyally, and unfalteringly served three Acharyas of Shree Swaminarayan Gadi – Adya Acharya Pravar Jeevanpran Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa, Ved Ratna Acharya Shree Purushottampriyadasji Swamishree Maharaj, and currently, Acharya Shree Jitendriyapriyadasji Swamiji Maharaj.  

During His Ashirwad on this occasion, Acharya Swamiji Maharaj described the superlative traits of Sadguru Shree Swasiddhcharandasji Swami that we must all imbibe into our own lives – he saw only the positives and good in everyone and discarded any flaws that may exist in anyone. Acharya Swamiji Maharaj explained that only by doing this can our own flaws be eliminated, and urged everyone to strive for such values in honour of our departed Sadguru, and to please the Lord.
