In December 2010, when HDH Acharya Swamishree visited Nairobi, the devotees made a special request to him. Their request was that HDH Acharya Swamishree celebrates his 69th birthday in Nairobi on 28th May 2011. The devotion, love and humble prayers of devotees attracted him to Nairobi. HDH Acharya Swamishree together with sant mandal and devotees arrived in Nairobi on the morning of 26th May 2011.
The managing committee warmly welcomed HDH Acharya Swamishree and sant mandal at Jomo Kenyatta Inter National Airport as they alighted from Kenya Airways plane from Mumbai. On arrival at Swamibapa Temple off 2nd Parklands Avenue, HH Swamibapa Pipe Band gave HDH Acharya Swamishree a guard of honour and led the procession to the temple hall. HDH Acharya Swamishree performed aarti to Lord Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa.
In the evening, HDH Acharya Swamishree showered his divine blessings to hundreds of devotees who had gathered for the welcome sabha. Members of SSSS Mandal Nairobi welcomed HDH Acharya Swamishree and sant mandal by honouring them with flower garlands. On this auspicious day, delicious prasad was distributed to everyone.
