After Sandhya Aarti and daily niyams, a swagat yatra was held where the sponsors of the mahotsav led Acharya Swamishree Purushottampriyadasji Maharaj to UV light display show. The colourful display of UV Lights artistically merged the old Swamibapa Temple on Kirinyaga Road with the new temple on Swamibapa Road.

Acharya Swamishree was then led into the temple hall where a rotating chariot pulled by six graceful swans waited for His divine darshan. Acharya Swamishree took His seat on the chariot and took the reins of the chariot in His hands. Young devotees gave their salutations and pleased Lord Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa with various dances in front of the chartiot. The unique dance portrayed the ceremonies which were held in the olden days when a king would victorious return to his palace after a huge victory over his enemies.This was followed by a colourful rasotsav. Everyone played with zeal and zest to the live music provided by sants and devotees of Swaminarayan Gadi Sansthan.

Consecrated prasad of ‘niranjanpaak’ and ‘chevdo’ was distributed to all present for this grand occasion.
