About 70 years ago, Gurudev Shree Mukajeevan Swamibapa visited Tanzania and promoted the tenets of Lord Swaminarayan (Karan Satsang ) as explained by Jeevanpran Abji Bapashree to devotees living in Dar-es-salaam, the capital city of Tanzania.
To date, devotees have maintained and followed these tenets and spread the wings of Karan Satsang in Tanzania. To further inculcate the same principals, Acharya Shree Purushottampriyadasji Swamishree Maharaj visited Dar-es-salaam from 2nd January 2019 to 5th January 2019.
Devotees warmly welcomed Acharya Swamishree Maharaj, who recited various religious discourses of episodes from Abji Bapashree Ni Vato and Vachanamrut. He blessed devotees’ homes, offices, work places and performed Abhishek Viddhi to Lord Swaminarayan in the Indian Ocean.
From Dar-es-salaam, Acharya Swamishree Maharaj and Sant-Haribhakto mandal came to Arusha where He was once again heartily welcomed by devotes residing in Arusha. A grand Shakotsav, similar to the one organised by The Lord Himself in Loya, was organized in Swaminarayan temple in the city of Arusha. Acharya Swamishree Himself prepared the tastiest of all brinjal curry. A grand array of millet chapatis, brinjal curry and various other sweets were offered to Lord Swaminarayan. To show their happiness, Devotees performed utsav with thimbles and traditional indian drums( tabla). Everyone dispersed to their destinations after experiencing the divine bliss of Lord Swaminarayan in Dar-es-salaam and Arusha. Acharya Swamishree Maharaj returned to Nairobi in the evening of 8th January 2019.
