Having given darshan to disciples in the USA and UK, Acharya Swamishree Maharaj and sants returned to India on 11 September 2012. After transiting in Mumbai, they reached Ahmedabad Airport during the evening, where senior sants and disciples garlanded Acharya Swamishree to mark the end of his 3 month tour for the propagation and preservation of the eternal Swaminarayan Faith.

Hundreds of disciples filled the grounds of Shree Swaminarayan Mandir Maninagar for Acharya Swamishree's darshan. Just after sunset, Acharya Swamishree Maharaj reached the gate of Shree Swaminarayan Mandir. A large poster was placed at the entrance of the temple, which summarised the key events of the tour - opening of Shree Swaminarayan Mandir Los Angeles, Platinum Tula in New Jersey, and Foundation Stone Ceremony of Shree Swaminarayan Mandir London.

With the blessings of Acharya Swamishree Maharaj, a new bugle band has been formed comprising of young disciples from Ahmedabad. They had been practicing every day since Acharya Swamishree departed from India, and this was the first time that they had performed before Acharya Swamishree.

Acharya Swamishree lovingly garlanded Lord Swaminarayan - Shree Ghanshyam Maharaj, and conveyed to Him the loving greetings of all the disciples living in the USA and UK. He then performed the sandhya aarti rituals.
