On Wednesday August 16th, 2006, disciples of Shree Swaminarayan Temple, New Jersey celebrated Janmastmi. A celebration was also held in Delaware by the disciples of the state and surrounding areas. The occasion was observed once again at the New Jersey temple on Saturday August 19th, 2006, along with Sadguru Din and Ajaa Ekadashi. At all three celebrations Lord Swaminarayan gave His divine darshan from a golden swing, and an utsav was held. On Saturday, after the utsav and daily Sandhya aarti niyams, disciples received Maha-Prasad.
