Narayanmuni Swami graced this festival. P. Anirdesh Swami narrated the glory of Shri Ramchandra and Shri Swaminarayan Bhagwan in detail.
Thereafter, various children presented a very good folkdance unfolding the births of Shri Ramchandra and Shri Swaminarayan Bhagwan. P. Narayanmuni Swami explained the importance of dharma and bhakti in our life, through numerous incidents from the lives of Shri Ramchandra and Shri Swaminarayan Bhagwan. He also mentioned that how this true dharma and bhakti are today omnipresent through Pramukh Swami Maharaj. At the end of the festival, P.
