Subhecha Samarambh & Divya Ashirwad - Shree Swaminarayan Mandir New Jersey

Before the disciples of North America knew it, Acharya Swamishree's one-and-a-half month-long 2019 North America Vicharan had come to an end. During this time, Acharya Swamishree and sants had traveled to sixteen states and bestowed divine darshan and blessings upon countless salvation-seeking souls across the continent. 

On Tuesday, August 6th, 2019, Acharya Swamishree showered His divine blessings upon the congregation of North America disciples gathered at Shree Swaminarayan Temple - Secaucus, New Jersey, one last time in 2019, and Acharya Swamishree and sants were all ceremoniously honored with fresh flower garlands.

Disciples then gathered inside Swamibapa Hall for the Samuh Rasoi event. Disciples had the darshan of Acharya Swamishree and sants having their evening meal in an ornate setting, while disciples gently sang kirtans. Everyone was then served mahaprasad.

On Wednesday, August 7th,  Acharya Swamishree performed the last aarti in the temple. Acharya Swamishree then lovingly bestowed His divine darshan upon all the disciples gathered at the temple on the final day of the vicharan. Acharya Swamishree and sants then departed around 4:30 PM for Newark International Airport to fly to London, U.K. After bestowing His darshan inside the airport to disciples, Acharya Swamishree and His accompanying sant mandal proceeded to the security screening and waved goodbye to His disciples one last time.

There are not enough ways for the disciples of North America to thank Acharya Swamishree and sants for everything that they do for them and the tireless travel they go through to bestow darshan to them every year. We are all truly blessed to be disciples of Maninagar Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Sansthan and the Karan Satsang.
