Friday 17 March 2023 marked the 32nd anniversary of the opening of Mokhasan Mandir.
Friday 17 March 2023 marked the 32nd anniversary of the opening of Mokhasan Mandir. The village of Mokhasan is approximately 8 km away from Kalol, in the Gandhinagar District of Gujarat. Due to the grace of Lord Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa, many of its inhabitants have settled in the USA and Canada, and consequently, the village infrastructure has greatly improved and the villagers enjoy a comfortable standard of living.
During his 2 day stay in Mokhasan, Acharya Swamiji Maharaj held scripture recitals and a procession was held through the village. During the evening, the sants performed a concert of devotional kirtans. There was also a visit to the newly renovated Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa Primary School in the village. Charitable donations were made on behalf of Maninagar Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Sansthan to various local causes. On patotsav day, Acharya Swamiji Maharaj performed the anniversary ceremony of Lord Shree Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa presiding in the main sinhasan after which a grand annakut was offered to the Lord. Disciples also performed aarti and took blessings from Acharya Swamiji Maharaj.
Acharya Shree Jitendriyapriyadasji Swamiji Maharaj is the current spiritual leader of Maninagar Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Sansthan. He is the heir to Acharya Shree Purushottampriyadasji Swamishree Maharaj, and sixth in the lineage of ascetic Acharyas, which descends directly from Lord Shree Swaminarayan.
