Maasai Mara Vicharan
His Divine Holiness Acharya Swamishree along with Santmandal and hundreds of devotees, visited Masai Mara from 6th to 8th January 2017.
Sadhya Aarti and Niyams were conducted during the first night followed by bhakti sangeet where the bhakti in the form of kirtans (hymns) echoed in the reserve and enticed the wildlife in the melodius bhakti.
With the increased poaching of the African elephants for their ivory, Marc Goss & Shawn Roberts came up with the MARA ELEPHANT PROJECT TRUST with a motive to protect our elephants from poachers and save one of our Big 5 from extinction. During the Bhakti sangeet night, Marc Goss & Shawn Roberts came to seek blessings from Acharya Swamishree Maharaj for their initiative to protect elephants in Kenya. Shree Swaminarayan gadi Sansthan gave a donation to MARA ELEPHANT PROJECT TRUST.
On the following day after Mangla Aarti and Niyams Marc Goss Shawn Roberts, honoured by Acharya Swamishree Maharaj’s blessings, requested Acharya Swamishree Maharaj to consecrate their helicopter and took Him for a serene aerial view of the Serengeti. Hundreds of animals were fortunate to receive the divine darshan of Acharya Swamishree Maharaj and santmandal.
On the second night, after Sandhya Aarti Niyams, sants and disciples enjoyed a blissful samuh raas by the Mara River.
The entourage had a safe and adventurous excursion to The Mara. While at the game reserve, they experienced the tranquility and natural aroma of the flora and fauna of The Maasai Mara.
