Acharya Swamishree Maharaj opened a Mandir in the village of Salal in 2015. Salal is situated in the Sabarkantha district of Gujarat. During the evening of Tuesday 17 February, He travelled to this village in Northern Gujarat to perform the first patotsav of Lord Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa presiding there, which took place on Wednesday 17 February. Exactly 97 years have passed since Jeevanpran Shree Abji Bapashree ceremonially installed the divine Murti of Shree Ghanshyam Maharaj - Lord Shree Swaminarayan, in Kadi Mandir. On Thursday 18 February, Sants and disciples performed the Ekadashi evening rituals in the presence of Acharya Swamishree Maharaj. On Saturday 20 February 2016, Acharya Swamishree Maharaj ceremonially bathed Shree Ghanshyam Maharaj in the five nectars. A grand annakut was also offered to the Lord on this occasion.
From Salal, Acharya Swamishree Maharaj travelled to Kadi during the late evening.
From Kadi, Acharya Swamishree Maharaj reached Viramgam, the largest city within the Ahmedabad District of Gujarat. In 2015, Acharya Swamishree Maharaj opened a splendid Mandir in Viramgam. On Monday 22 February 2016, Acharya Swamishree Maharaj performed the first patotsav of the Lord presiding in the city.
Immediately after the ceremony had concluded in Viramgam, Acharya Swamishree Maharaj travelled to the village of Trent, which is a small village in Northern Gujarat. The villagers of Trent are very devout, and Jeevanpran Bapashree has visited the village on several occasions. The families living there have had much respect and dedication for the Karan Satsang. The disciples of Trent had requested Acharya Swamishree Maharaj to visit their village, so that scripture recitals could be held in His divine presence. Acharya Swamishree Maharaj blessed them all on this occasion. On Tuesday night, Acharya Swamishree Maharaj returned to Maninagar for 1 night, before continuing His vicharan in other parts of Gujarat.
