Kartik vad Sadguru Din – 25th November 2011
Kartik vad Sadguru Din was extra special for the devotees in Nairobi due to the presence of HDH Acharya Swamishree along with the sant mandal. The evening started with Sandhya Aarti, niyams, thaad, prathna, kirtan bhakti, katha varta, dhyan and HDH Acharya Swamishree's Divine ashirwad.
In His Divine ashirwad, HDH Acharya Swamishree explained what one needs to do on Sadguru Din and emphasized on the following points:-
- Sadguru Din should be used as a barometer for one's own self-assessment of how much progression has been made during the previous month, in the devotion unto the Supreme Lord Swaminarayan.
- One needs to gauge the strength of bond of love with Lord Swaminarayan. We should ensure that this bond gets stronger by the day.
- In order to strengthen this bond, nama mrut(chanting Lords name) and katha mrut ( listening to religious discourses) should be a continuous activity in one’s life.
To mark the day, the Sansmaran kirtan "He Sadguruji, He Sadguruji, Jem Kahesho Tem Karshu, Jodi haathji...." was sung as a tribute to Sadguru Shree Ishwarcharandasji Swamibapa followed by samuh raas and sanero.
