On Sunday 6th August, students of Swamibapa Gujarati school put on a special assembly based on a historic event, when Lord Shree Swaminarayan gave Suvasini Bhabhi darshan of His divine lotus feet.
The assembly was timed to explain the Hindolo theme; Lord Shree Swaminarayan Bhagwan’s Charanavind Hindolo which was also designed and created by the students of Swamibapa Gujarati School. Lord Shree Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa were adorned in beautiful red and blue vagha which also depicted the 16 unique markings on Bhagwan's lotus feet.
The students delivered a superb performance; acting, dancing and melodious singing to depict the occasion when, in Ayodhya, Suvasini Bhabhi witnessed the divine lotus feet of Lord Shree Ghanshyam which had 16 unique markings, 16 chihan. Lord Shree Ghanshyam promised Suvasini Bhabhi that when He became ordained as King, He would not forget her. In accordance with this boon, He adopted the sons of His elder brother and Lord Swaminarayan created the Laxminarayan and Narnarayan Gadis and their respective deshs (lands). Thus Lord Swaminarayan created these Vyavharik Gadis and made arrangements for the welfare of these two Acharyas. Lord Swaminarayan proclaiming His dearest and choicest sant, Sadguru Shree Gopalanand Swami above both Acharyas and entrusting him as the controller of both deshs and the helms of the entire religion.
An answer and question session educated the congregation of the importance of Bhagwan's Charanavind and explained the meaning of each of the nine marks on Bhagwan's right foot and each of the seven marks on Bhagwan's left foot.
A short video had been compiled showing the children, teachers and volunteers of Swamibapa Gujarati School putting together the impressive Hindolo in which Lord Swaminarayanbapa, Jeevanpran Abjibapashree and Muktajeevan Swamibapa were being peacefully swung.
The young learnt and the wider congregation were reminded that these chihans are unique to the Supreme Lord and no other human being on earth possesses such features. One can recognise the Supreme Lord by observing His divine Lotus Feet.
