The festival of colour, Fuldolotsav celebrates the victory of truth over falsehood with a sense of hope, love and unity. The colours are bright and joyous, like the bliss that emanates from the Murti of Lord Shree Swaminarayan. While Lord Shree Swaminarayan was present on Earth in human form, He would celebrate Fuldolotsav in different villages throughout India with his Sants and Disciples, in spectacular and colourful festivals. For over 200 years since then, in much the same way, the Swaminarayan Sampraday has been celebrating the annual Fuldolotsav festival throughout the world.
