The BAPS Swaminarayan Mandir in Sarangpur, built by Shastriji Maharaj, will be completing 100 years in 2016. Year long celebrations are being held in Sarangpur to commemorate this centenary. The Yagna for World Peace was one among several programs organized during the celebrations.
More than 14,000 devotees from India and abroad offered items during the yagna rituals as 125 scholars guided the performance of Vedic rituals during the yagna.
During this two-day yagna, His Holiness Pramukh Swami Maharaj, blessed the yagna participants with his personal presence on both days to fulfill the loving sentiments of the devotees.
Swamishri performed puja rituals and offered rice and grains in the central yagnakund. He also performed arti of Thakorji at the Yagna and prayed for world peace and the well-being of all. He was pleased to see the devotion of the yajmans, and gave his blessings so that all devotees’ wishes are fulfilled.
A mega blood donation camp organized along with the yagna also received overwhelming response from the devotees.
