After completing their two-month vicharan of the entire United States and Canada, His Divine Holiness Acharya Swamishree and the mandal of sants departed the United States for their vicharan of the United Kingdom.
On Friday, August 8th, 2008, a vidhay samaram sabha was held. Young disciples read pieces from the English Vachnamrut to please the Lord. Sadguru Shastri Shree Jitendrapriyadasji Swami gave a speech reflecting on the entire vicharan. Afterwards, young disciples who have been training on the bagpipes and who are hoping to join Swamibapa Pipe Band soon played a few selections to please Lord Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa and Acharya Swamishree. Acharya Swamishree was very pleased with these disciples’ progress, considering their very young age. Then Acharya Swamishree showered His final divine blessings before leaving the United States. Disciples also offered flower garlands to Acharya Swamishree and all the sants to thank them for all they had done for the disciples of the United States for the past two months.
On Saturday, August 9th, 2008, after performing aarti to the murtis of the Lord one last time, Acharya Swamishree and sants departed Shree Swaminarayan Temple New Jersey for John F. Kennedy International Airport. Many disciples accompanied Acharya Swamishree to the airport, hoping to receive His divine darshan one last time before He departed for London. Around 6:30 pm, Acharya Swamishree and sants said their final goodbyes and boarded the plane to leave for London
