The month of Vaishakh is always special for the disciples of Shree Swaminarayan Gadi living in Kutch, because the anniversary of all our Kutch temples falls within this month. Consequently, Acharya Swamishree presides in the region for the duration of the Vaishakh month and gives darshan and spiritual guidance to everyone.
Traditionally, Acharya Swamishree reaches Kutch so that the last day of the preceding month, Shree Sadguru Din of the Chaitra month, is commemorated there.
Accordingly, Acharya Swamishree and a large mandal of sants reached the village of Naranpur during the evening of Thursday 13 May 2010. A procession was held to welcome Acharya Swamishree to Naranpur.
Shree Sadguru Din was observed on Friday 14 May 2010. Sunday 16 May 2010, was the patotsav day of Shree Swaminarayan Mandir Naranpur. Acharya Swamishree performed the rituals and gave divine blessings to all the disciples of the village and surrounding areas.
The patotsav of Shree Swaminarayan Mandir – Madhapar took place on Thursday 20 May 2010, after which Acharya Swamishree travelled to Bhuj where religious discourses were held. These scripture recitals culminated in the patotsav ceremony of the supreme Lord Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa who presides in Bhuj Mandir on Wednesday 26 May 2010.
The disciples of Bharasar were fortunate to have the darshan of Acharya Swamishree in their village. Acharya Swamishree performed the patotsav ceremony on Thursday 27 May, before departing for the adjacent village of Mankuva. Friday 28 May 2010 was not only the patotsav day for Mankuva Mandir, it was also the auspicious day that Acharya Swamishree manifested upon the Earth. Disciples took the opportunity to offer aarti on this special occasion.
Acharya Swamishree performed the patotsav ceremony at Kera on Thursday 3 June and at Ghanshyamnagar on Monday 7 June before departing for Karjisan.
