As a part of his 2014 North America vicharan, His Divine Holiness Acharya Swamishree toured the state of Kentucky from Tuesday, July 22, 2014, through Wednesday, July 23, 2014. He performed padhramanis at the homes of disciples and their various places of business whilst providing blessings to them all and propagating the glory of Lord Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa. On Wednesday, July 23, 2014, Acharya Swamishree performed the first Patotsav ceremony of Shree Swaminarayan Temple Louisville, Kentucky. A grand annkut and aarti were offered to the Lord, Acharya Swamishree showered His divine blessings, and disciples gave speeches about the Lord’s glory in celebration of this occasion. During the ceremony, the congregation came together to pray to the Lord that their faith continue to flourish so that they may please Him more and more each day. As such, they may reflect back on the previous year at each Patotsav ceremony to see how their knowledge about the Lord’s glory and their devotion unto Him has increased.
