On Saturday, February 9th, 2019, disciples gathered at Shree Swaminarayan Temple - Secaucus, New Jersey to celebrate Shakotsav and Shikshapatri Jayanti. To start the program, disciples read the entire Shikshapatri together. Disciples then performed kirtan bhakti before listening to the divine blessings of Acharya Swamishree. Afterwards, young disciples spoke a few words on the Shakotsav and Shikshapatri, which preceeded utsav celebrations. The event concluded with sandhya aarti and niyams before disciples enjoyed dinner.
Acharya Shree Jitendriyapriyadasji Swamiji Maharaj is the current spiritual leader of Maninagar Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Sansthan. He is the heir to Acharya Shree Purushottampriyadasji Swamishree Maharaj, and sixth in the lineage of ascetic Acharyas, which descends directly from Lord Shree Swaminarayan.
