During just a short twenty-one-day vicharan, from July 17, 2013, to August 6, 2013, His Divine Holiness Acharya Swamishree and twenty-one sants traveled to ten states in the USA and graced thousands of disciples with Their divine presence. Acharya Swamishree and sants traveled tirelessly from coast-to-coast during this vicharan to spread the glory of Lord Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa and to emanate the supreme teachings of the Swaminarayan philosophy.

Acharya Swamishree visited the major temples in Los Angeles, Chicago, and Secaucus to perform their Patotsav ceremonies and celebrate the Swamibapa Pipe Band tenth anniversary, but He also visited the states of Texas and Oklahoma for the first time ever, opened a new temple in Louisville, Kentucky, opened a Hari Mandir in Cleveland, Ohio, visited Shree Swaminarayan Temple Delaware for Gurupoornima celebrations.

Wherever Acharya Swamishree went, disciples wanted to please Him and the Lord by performing religious ceremonies, performing devotional dances, making beautiful garlands, decorating the temple, or singing kirtans. Acharya Swamishree became pleased with His disciples, and He showered them with divine blessings wherever He went. In these short three weeks, Acharya Swamishree filled the hearts of all the disciples in the United States with memories for a lifetime.
