For the past 150 years, the sacred Akshar Deri – the memorial shrine of Aksharbrahman Gunatitanand Swami – has been a profound source of spiritual succour to countless people. To commemorate its 150th anniversary and by the wish of Brahmaswarup Pramukh Swami Maharaj, the Akshar Deri has been extensively renovated, while preserving its original unique shape.
On the auspicious occasion of Vasant Panchami, on 22 January 2018, His Holiness Mahant Swami Maharaj inaugurated the renovated Akshar Deri with full Vedic rites. During the rituals, prayers were offered for the wellbeing, prosperity and spiritual progress of all and for world peace.
Blessing the gathering, Mahant Swami Maharaj said, “This Akshar Deri is a profoundly sacred place where everyone’s wishes are fulfilled. Sincere prayers are fulfilled by devoutly offering mahapuja, pradakshinas and dhun. All who come here for darshan will experience inner peace.” He also emphasized, “All the Gunatit gurus have always put God at the forefront and led all towards God. They have always promoted devotion to God. May Bhagwan Swaminarayan bless all to strengthen their devotion and progress spiritually.”
