After staying for nearly eight months in Mumbai, Swamishri was scheduled to depart by helicopter to Sarangpur this morning.
According to his daily morning routine, Swamishri went for abhishek darshan of Nilkanth Varni, followed by darshan of Thakorji. Here, on the threshold of the middle shrine the small chal (mobile) murtis of Shri Harikrishna Maharaj and Shri Jabreshwar Maharaj were placed. Swamishri was given a pichkari (squirter) filled with coloured water to symbolically celebrate the rangotsav (festival colours). Thereafter, Swamishri blessed all the devotees seated beneath the mandir dome.
At 10.00 a.m. Swamishri reached the airport at Parle Flying Club and departed at 10.10 a.m. The helicopter landed in Sarangpur at 12.20 p.m. Swamishri gave darshan to all.
