On Wednesday 17 November 2010, Kartik sud Ekadashi, Shree Abji Bapashree Jayanti celebrations were held in temples around the world.
Lord Shree Swaminarayan, Jeevanpran Bapashree, and Gurudev Jeevanpran Swamibapa were seated on an ornamental swing and poojan was performed. Sants sang songs in which the glory of the Lord was narrated.
Acharya Swamishree then commenced the 24-hour long continuous recital of the sacred ‘Swaminarayan’ name. This concluded on the morning of Thursday 18 November 2010.
During the evening of that day, Acharya Swamishree and 14 sants, and a large group of disciples departed for Mumbai, and then proceeded to Nairobi, Kenya during the very early hours of Saturday 20 November 2010.
