With the effects of the devotees of Coventry Satsang Mandal, recently a site for a new BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Coventry was acquired.
With the blessings of Param Pujya Pramukh Swami Maharaj, on Sunday 10 December 2006 [Mãgshar Vad 6], the murtis of Shri Akshar Purushottam Maharaj, Shri Radha-Krishna Dev and the Guru Parampara were installed in the new mandir. Sadhus from BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, Neasden, London conducted the pratishtha rituals with Vedic verses chanted to infuse the ‘pran’ in the murtis.
A beautiful Annakut was offered in front of the new murtis and after the ãrti, everyone had the opportunity of performing darshan of the murtis. Some 300 devotees and well-wishers attended this auspicious occasion.
After the pratishtha, a short assembly was held in which Yogvivek Swami read out Pramukh Swami Maharaj’s blessings written to the devotees of Coventry Satsang Mandal for this auspicious occasion from Anand.
