The Washington DC BAPS Swaminarayan Mandir celebrated the Fuldol festival and a birthday of Bhagatji Maharaj with great enthusiasm in the presence of Pujya Viveknidhi Swami, Pujya Bhaktiswarup Swami and devotees. Kishore Mandal had magnificently decorated both stages with artificial trees, plants, and flowers to create a festive Vasant environment. On the left stage an attractively decorated swing with the Utsav Murti of Bhagwan Swaminarayan being swung by Gunatitanand Swami and on the other stage a swing suspended from the ceiling with the cut out murti of Pramukh Swami Maharaj were nicely arranged. The evening program commenced at 4:00 pm with Stuti, Dhoon, Prarthana, and celebratory Kirtans like Swami Amaare Ang Tam Rung Dholido and Mane Lagyo-re rasiya taro rang Pujya Viveknidhi Swami delivered the keynote speech enlightening the life and invaluable achievements of Bhagatji Maharaj. He also talked about the historic side of the Holi Utsav and how Shriji Maharaj celebrated this festival with great enthusiasm. Kishore mandal performed a skit on "Adhunik Rang - Internet Chatting" that very effectively informed the audience about its addictive nature and serious effects on todays youths. Finally, all devotees enjoyed a video darshan of previous Fuldol celebration by Pramukh Swami Maharaj in Sarangpur kith Kirtan Yogi Aavo te rang. The program was concluded with singing of Fagva and traditional prasad of khajur, chana and dhani.
