Gurupoonam is celebrated on Ashadh Sud 15. On 24th July 2021, all the devotees in Nairobi, Mombasa and Kampala celebrated this day with great joy.
This is the day when devotees pay homage to their beloved Guru. Our true and adhyatmik Guru is one and only Lord Shree Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa. He is the one who removes the veil of darkness (maya), gives us true spiritual knowledge and leads us to the path of ultimate salvation.
As a sign of respect, devotees offered flower garlands, fresh fruits, dry fruits, sweets, cakes, vastra and performed aarti to Lord Shree Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa. Supreme Lord Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa was adorned in beautiful garments and ornaments. On behalf of all the devotees, Poojari performed poojan, aarti and offered a cake to The Lord.
Kirtan Bhakti is one of the nine forms of bhakti to please The Lord. Devotees became immersed in the murti of The Lord and sang melodious Gurupoonam related kirtans. Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa showered His awe inspiring divine blessings to all present. The celebrations concluded with dhoon and distribution of prasad.
