The Janmashtami celebrations were held on 22 August 2011 in all the Swaminarayan Gadi Temples around the world. At midnight, Shree Harikrishna Maharaj was seated in a silver ornate swing and offered thaal. The ‘Manifestation Aarti’ was performed whilst the sants and disciples sang to the accompaniment of musical instruments.

The traditional prasad of ‘Panchajiri’, the sweet powder made of five items: coriander seeds, cumin, coconut, ghee and ghor, was then offered to the Lord and distributed to all the disciples.
