Sadguru Din - New Years Celebration
Sandhya aarti rituals started off at 5.30. After the rituals, dhyan was held for half an hour and later Acharya Swamishree conducted his discourses.
After the discourses, devotees began playing samuh raas to please Lord Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa. In between the raas, the Divine murti of Lord Swaminarayan that the ladies were circling around the murti, blessed everyone present for the sadguru din celebrations by perspiring from the forehead. Indeed it was a blessed evening. The celebrations were concluded by counting down the seconds into the new year, 2014.
Acharya Shree Jitendriyapriyadasji Swamiji Maharaj is the current spiritual leader of Maninagar Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Sansthan. He is the heir to Acharya Shree Purushottampriyadasji Swamishree Maharaj, and sixth in the lineage of ascetic Acharyas, which descends directly from Lord Shree Swaminarayan.
