On Sunday, October 7th, 2018, disciples celebrated Gurudev Jeevanpran Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa's 111th Manifestation Day and Sadguru Din. To start off the celebration, disciples carried Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa on a golden palanquin from the lobby of Swamibapa Hall into the temple prayer hall. They performed utsav and carried chhaabs with offerings for the Lord while doing so. After offering all chaab items, offering cake to Swamibapa, and performing poojan, disicples performed kirtan-bhakti in celebration of the occasion. Next, disciples performed dhyaan to visualize the divine lustrous murti of Lord Shree Swaminarayan. Several disciples then addressed the congregation about the glory of Jeevanpran Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa, recalling precious memories and interactions from whilst He gave darshan upon this Earth in a human form. The congregation also listened to His Divine Holiness Acharya Swamishree's divine blessings and reflections on His beloved Gurudev Swamibapa. Celebrations were concluded with sandhya aarti and niyams, after which disciples enjoyed mahaprasad.
