Gurudev Jeevanpran Swamibapa’s 103 manifestation celebrations were held in all the temples of Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Sansthan around the world.
Jeevanpran Swamibapa gave darshan in the small village of Kheda, on the auspicious day of Bhadarva Vad Amas, 07 October 1907, at the home of Muljibhai and Ichhaba Patel.
Exactly 103 year later, Jeevanpran Swamibapa’s spiritual heir, Acharya Swamishree presided over a 3 day festival held in the grounds of Swamibapa’s eternal home, Shree Swaminarayan Mandir Maninagar.
Wednesday 06 October 2010 was the 19th anniversary of when Acharya Swamishree opened Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa Smruti Mandir, and installed the divine Murtis of the supreme Lord Swaminarayan, Jeevanpran Shree Abji Bapashree, and the divine lineage of Lord Swaminarayan’s spiritual heirs.
On Thursday 07 October 2010, a procession was held from Shree Swaminarayan Tower during which Jeevanpran Swamibapa and Acharya Swamishree gave darshan to all the sants and disciples. 103 young disciples brought offerings, which Acharya Swamishree presented to Jeevanpran Swamibapa. The grand tula ceremony was also performed, in which Jeevanpran Swamibapa was ceremonially weighed against flowers, sugar, coconuts, and others articles used in worship.
On this occasion, Acharya Swamishree performed the inauguration of two new scriptures, both of which have been authored by Acharya Swamishree Himself. Shree Harignanamrut Rasaswad contains an explanation of the meanings behind each kirtan (spiritual poem) that Jeevanpran Swamibapa has written in His collation, Shree Harignanamrut Kavya. Sadachar Sandesh is a collation of the advice that Acharya Swamishree has given to people in order that they life a moral and disciplined life, and the guidance that He has given people so they are relieved of their troubles. A new CD of kirtans, Nirkhya Re Ghanshyam, was also inaugurated by Acharya Swamishree.
For the past year, Maninagar Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Sansthan has produced a Hindi serial, Sarvavatari Shree Swaminarayan Bhagwan, which is shown around the world on the satellite TV channel, NDTV Imagine. On the occasion of Jeevanpran Swamibapa’s magnificent manifestation day, the director, script writer, and many actors from the serial came for Acharya Swamishree’s divine darshan.
