Falgun Sud 2 is celebrated as Shree Sadguru Din in Maninagar. This is also the auspicious day that Jeevanpran Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa chose to designate our beloved Acharya Swamishree Maharaj to be His heir and divine sovereign of Shree Swaminarayan Gadi. This historic occasion took place on Wednesday 28th February 1979.
 
On 17 February 2018, the Sadguru Din celebrations commenced from the early morning, with continuous meditation, recitation of religious songs and chanting.
 
On behalf of all the Sants and disciples around the World, the senior Sants performed poojan to Acharya Swamishree Maharaj to acknowledge the immense work that He has done over the past 39 years for the continuous progression of Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Sansthan.
 
During the evening, the disciples of Kalol performed short sketches portraying fundamental aspects of the Karan Satsang. The disciples of Kadi then enacted a short drama in which the history and significance of Kadi Mandir was explained. And through this play, they gave an invitation to everyone to attend the centenary celebrations of Shree Ghanshyam Maharaj presiding in Kadi, which will be held in February 2019.
 
During the morning of Falun Sud 3, Acharya Swamishree Maharaj performed the panchamrut snan of the Lord, during which He was ceremonially bathed in the five nectars. A magnificent Annakut was also offered to the Lord on this final day of the festival.
 
In His divine blessings, Acharya Swamishree Maharaj explained the glory of Maninagardham. He described the five occasions when Lord Shree Swaminarayan visited the mango shrove of Maninagar, presided beneath a particular mango tree, bathed in the water of its lake, and made this site the source of eternal salvation. This is the site where Lord Shree Swaminarayan forecasted that He would come to preside in the future, and that this would become the worldwide headquarters for the propagation and preservation of His supreme philosophy. This is the sacred site that Supreme Lord Shree Swaminarayan and His divine lineage of spiritual heirs have regarded as being their eternal home, and where He will preside forever more. This is the site of Shree Swaminarayan Mandir, Maninagar.
 
Acharya Swamishree Maharaj also marked the official start of Shree Ghanshyam Maharaj Amrut Mahotsav. This grand festival to be held in February 2019 marks 75 years since the supreme Lord Shree Swaminarayan came to preside in Maninagar Mandir.
