Inspirator: His Divine Holiness Acharya Swamishree Purushottampriyadasji Maharaj
Vijay Bhava Bharat  


In an unprecedented goodwill gesture to confer moral support to the Indian cricket team who have recently qualified for the Super Six stage of the Circket World Cup, His Divine Holiness Acharya Swamishree held a special event on 6th March 2003 at Shree Swaminarayan Mandir Maninagar.

A huge crowd had gathered at the Mandir complex to witness and take part in this event. On this occasion, communal prayers were held in order that world stability is maintained. Acharya Swamishree said, "The way to live together and work together is learnt through playing together. A lot is learnt from play. When young children play in a school playground, they disregard any feuds or differences. And in this manner, they all unite. Similarly, the rest of the world must all learn to unite. Taking part in world events such as this Cricket World cup has an important role in this pacifying process. Let us all pray to the supreme Lord SwaminarayanBapa Swamibapa, that this unity is spread throughout society."

Acharya Swamishree reminded everyone of how our beloved Gurudev Jeevanpran Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa inspired the disciples of Kenya to start a cricket team (Swamibapa Sports Club). Through His divine blessings, Swamibapa Sports Club has been the most prominent team for the country's National and International game. Many of the players representing Kenya in the current World Cup today are club members of Swamibapa Sports Club.

Acharya Swamishree blessed the Indian Cricket team and commended their efforts for the promotion of our Country. This was greeted with huge cheers by the assembled mass.
