Acharya Swamishree accepted the humble requests of the disciples of Mombasa and visited their homes, workplaces and farms. He also blessed the Indian Ocean by swimming in its water.
Lord Shree Swaminarayan says, ‘Even a person who can incessantly visualise the Murti of God must remember the various different episodes that are performed by God and His Satpurushs in the different places and situations. This is because, if the Murti of God is forgotten during one’s last moments, the memories of those divine episodes at the various different places, or the memories of God’s disciples and sants, will remind him of the Murti of God. Consequently, the soul can achieve the elite status and experience immense bliss. It is for this reason that I perform grand festivals and ceremonies. Even a sinful soul can attain the divine abode of God, if he remembers these episodes during his last moments.’
In order to impart such unforgettable memories to His disciples, Acharya Swamishree visited Mombasa on 14 December 2005.
