Adya Acharya Pravar Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa began the observance of Shree Sadguru Din on Vikram samvat 2006, Jeth vad amaas, (1949).
Each Sadguru Din comprises of multiple dhyaan (meditation), dhoon (chanting), kathaa vaartaa (religious discourses and discussions) and kirtan bhakti (devotional singing) sessions. Sadguru Bapa and Jeevanpran Shree Abji Bapashree were particularly fond of these modes of worship and so it is these that are given a prominence on Sadguru Din.
Posh Vad Amas was celebrated on 17th January 2018 at Maninagar Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Sansthan, Shree Swaminarayan Siddhant Sajivan Mandal – Nairobi. The activities commenced by Sandhya Arti niyams commencing at 5.30pm followed by kirtan bhakti and a 30 minute meditation.
Acharya Swamishree Maharaj blessed the congregation by explaining, “Lord Shree Swaminarayan manifested upon this earth to give the contentment of His Murti to His disciples. We have to contemplate the Lord's Murti so as to attain a complete knowledge. For one to succeed in contemplating the Lord’s Murti during dhyaan, they have to abandon their bad habits as this can derail one from the road of attaining the Lord’s Murti. Therefore, one has to understand the greatness of the Lord and His Satpurush, and merge in the Lord’s Murti. Whoever misstates the Lord’s teachings, will never succeed in contemplating the Murti.”
To conclude the Sadguru Din celebrations, Sants and disciples gracefully played Samuh Raas to please Lord Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa.
