Acharya Swamishree Honours Eminent Guests
On 30th December HDH Acharay Swamishree blessed and presented gifts to various political and business leaders who gathered in Nairobi, South ‘B’ to witness the blessings of new trucks purchased by devotees.
It is our tradition that when one attains a new piece of item/property he first offers it to the lotus feet of Lord Shree Swaminarayan for His blessings and then use it for personal use. Even newly wedded couples go to church/temple for the Lord’s blessings. To successfully carry out their duties, elected leaders also pray for spiritual and mental strength. As per our tradition, HDH Acharya Swamishree Purushottampriyadasji Maharaj performed poojan to the newly purchased trucks.
The blessings of the Lord are attained through spiritual and religious leaders. Thus, if one comes in association of His Divine Holiness Acharya Swamishree, he receives the blessings of Lord Shree Swaminarayan and acquires spiritual and mental strength.
Renounced guests present at this function were, Forestry and Wildlife minister Dr. Noah Wekesa, Kisii Chief Magistrate Mr.Gitonga Mbogo, renowned doctors, entrepreneurs, bankers, and other prominent business persons.
HDH Acharya Swamishree’s message to everyone was to get rid of vices such as gambling, stealing, smoking and intoxication. Provide education to the youth and instill spiritual knowledge to produce powerful future leaders. In the present day when we face great threat of terrorism, we should all unite as brothers irrespective of colour, creed or religion and fight against it. Educate people on the benefits arising through conservation of forests. Show kindness to Lord’s creation; wildlife, humans and plants.
The minister also stressed the importance of conservation of forest and wildlife and urged everyone to work in harmony with each other and strenghthen the bond of spiritual brotherhood.
The chief magistrate urged all Kenyans to be patriotic citizens, respect the Laws of Kenya and not involve in any form of corruption. He said it was a golden opportunity for him to meet a true “International Saint.” HDH Acharya Swamishree has respect for Lord’s creation. He shows a lot of affection for wildlife and plants. He has equal respect for all human beings irrespective of his caste, creed, religion or status in the society. I have never known that such a divinely saint still exists today!! As a representative of the Kenyan Government, I cordially extend my humble invitation to HDH Acharya Swamishree to come more often to our country Kenya. By the grace of His Divine Holiness Acharya Swamishree Purushottampriyadasji Maharaj, we can “Live and let all live in an eco-friendly green environment”.
All the guests said that they were really fortunate to have darshan and blessings of HDH Acharya Swamishree. At the end of the function everyone was served with prasad.
