On 29th February 2020, eminent Sants performed the foundation stone laying ceremony of a new Mandir in the village of Dhandhalpur.
Under the inspiration of Acharya Swamishree Maharaj, the Panchmahal region has flourished in recent years. The disciples of this region are particularly devout and were very to dear to Gurudev Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa. The Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Faith has grown exponentially in the region, and a new Mandir in the village of Dhandhalpur is soon to be realised.
To spread the benefits of the Faith far and wide, Acharya Swamishree Maharaj has inspired several Mandirs in the Panchmahal region as well as hundreds around the world. On 29th February 2020, eminent Sants performed the foundation stone laying ceremony of a new Mandir in the village of Dhandhalpur. This is the ninth Swaminarayan Gadi Mandir to be built in this region.
By regularly attending Mandir, people become virtuous, and through good virtues comes purity - purity of the body, purity of the mind and purity of the soul. Before entering Mandir and presenting themselves before the Lord, disciples ensure their bodies are clean through bathing or washing of hands and feet. As they walk up the Mandir steps, the hustle and bustle of daily life is forgotten and a sense of tranquillity and peacefulness descends, and the soul is cleansed. Therefore, a Mandir is more than just a building made of bricks and mortar, it’s priceless in the way it calms and cleanses the soul.
