On Sunday 28th May 2006, to celebrate the 29th anniversary of the Temple and to mark the start of its 30th year, a special evening of devotional performances was held in the vast grounds of the Temple, in the divine presence of Acharya Swamishree. The enthusiasm to hold this event on this day, on the evening before the Temple patotsav, was augmented because it was on this day that Jeevanpran Swamibapa’s beloved heir, Acharya Swamishree, manifested upon this earth in 1942.

Acharya Swamishree was ceremonially welcomed onto the magnificent stage, with the accompaniment of young, dancing disciples from Varodara. The music to which they danced had been specially created for this event. Eminent Sadguru Sants, the Mahants of Shree Swaminarayan Temple Varodara, Shree Nityaprakashdasji Swami and Shree Harikeshavdasji Swami, and leading disciples garlanded Acharya Swamishree on behalf of all the sants and disciples living in India and around the world.

Devotional dances were then performed, and speeches were given by young disciples of Varodara. A short comical sketch was also enacted. The highlight of the evening’s events was a dance performance given by a physically disadvantaged disciple.

A new sub-site to Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Sansthan’s official website, www.SwaminarayanGadi.com, which is dedicated to giving information about Shree Swaminarayan Temple London, was inaugurated by Acharya Swamishree. The web url of this new sub-site is www. SwaminarayanGadi.com/London.
