On Thursday 6th February 2014, Acharya Swamishree Maharaj went to Viramgam, a city in the Ahmedabad district of Gujarat. This historical city is situated along the main road between Ahmedabad to Kutch.
Jeevanpran Shree Abji Bapashree visited Viramgam on many occasions and therefore it has a very interesting history for our Karan Satsang. Due to Swamibapa’s efforts, many of the disciples living Viramgam remained faithful to Jeevanpran Bapashree and stayed disciples of Maninagar Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Sansthan. By the grace and divine mercy of Acharya Swamishree Maharaj, a splendid new Mandir is to be built in the city.
Acharya Swamishree Maharaj performed the mahapooja ceremony of Shree Harikrishna Maharaj and sanctified the bricks to be placed in the foundations of the new Mandir. Sants and disciples carried the bricks into the foundations that had been dug in the ground, and Acharya Swamishree Maharaj laid the bricks and the foundation stone.
