On Monday, August 3rd, 2009, hundreds of disciples of Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Sansthan had gathered at the home of disciples in the state of Delaware. A sabha was held there in the presence of His Divine Holiness Acharya Swamishree and seventeen sants, who were on a vicharan of the Mid-Atlantic states (Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland). A procession, during which Acharya Swamishree was seated on a palanquin, was held from the entrance of the neighborhood to the disciples' home. Acharya Swamishree, sants, and disciples performed daily Sandhya aarti niyams upon entrance into the house. Afterwards, Acharya Swamishree showered His divine blessings upon the entire congregation that had gathered in the basement. Disciples performed aarti to Lord Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa and Acharya Swamishree, and everyone was then given maha-prasad.
