Immediately following the Gurupoonam celebrations, from July 20th through August 9th, 2008, His Divine Holiness Acharya Swamishree completed His vicharan of the Northeast region of the United States. This region includes the states of New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania, as well as all of the New England states. Although geographically the smallest region in the country, this region is home to a large number of disciples in the United States. Shree Swaminarayan Temple New Jersey is also located in this region.
During this time, Acharya Swamishree and sants performed dozens of padhramanis and held many gatherings and assemblies, during which they preached the teachings of Lord Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa. Acharya Swamishree also presided over the three-day celebration for the seventh Patotsav of Shree Swaminarayan Temple New Jersey.
Having travelled all over the rest of the country, Acharya Swamishree and the mandal of sants concluded their vicharan of the United States with the Northeast vicharan. During this time, Acharya Swamishree and the sants spread the glory of Lord Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa all over the vast country, fulfilling each and every disciple’s wishes as they travelled.
