This year, Acharya Swamishree Maharaj will not be able to attend the patotsav of Vadodara Mandir as His tour of the UK and USA will have commenced by then. Therefore, Acharya Swamishree Maharaj visited the city early, on 15 April 2014 and remained there for several days to fulfil the spiritual desires of the loving disciples of Vadodara.

During the evening of 17 April 2014, the young talented disciples of the city performed devotional dances and a special drama production. The drama depicted the story of a young man with a stomach ailment. Depending on the style of acting, that same situation could be comical, or tragic. The actors were explaining that the same situation is true of one’s life; it is up to the individual to make the best of all opportunities that the merciful Lord has given, and use them to please Lord Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa and Acharya Swamishree Maharaj. In this manner, a person can progress closer and closer to the Lord. If perceived wrongly, the circumstances faced in life can also make a person fall from the path of God. However, by remaining at Shree Swaminarayan Gadi, under the guidance of Acharya Swamishree Maharaj and eminent Sants, a person can continue to take the rightful viewpoints, and adhere to the correct path of spiritual salvation.
