On Friday 5 April 2013, His Divine Holiness Acharya Swamishree performed the patotsav ceremony of Lord Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa at Shree Swaminarayan Mandir Mokhasan. The village of Mokhasan is approximately 8 km away from Kalol, in the Gandhinagar District of Gujarat. Due to the grace of Lord Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa and Acharya Swamishree Maharaj, many people from Mokhasan have settled in the USA and Canada, and consequently, the village infrastructure has greatly improved and the villagers enjoy a comfortable standard of living.
To ceremonially welcome Acharya Swamishree Maharaj to Mokhasan, a procession was held through the village. All the villagers were given the opportunity of the Lord’s divine darshan.
After the patotsav ceremony, annakut was offered to the Lord, and disciples performed aarti.
