With the blessings and instructions of HH Pramukh Swami Maharaj, Sadguru Bhaktipriya Swami (Kothari Swami) and accompanying sadhus visited the UK and parts of Europe en route to India from the USA during February and March 2013.
During this time, Kothari Swami met many devotees and well-wishers, celebrating the festival of Vasant Panchami in London and at mandirs and centres across the UK, including Luton, Wellingborough, Loughborough, Manchester, Preston, and Southend-on-Sea. He was also present to address the National Yuvak-Yuvati Shibir held in London and Leicester.
Kothari Swami attended the celebrations to mark 40 years of Satsang activities in Birmingham, and travelled to further nourish devotees in Paris and Lisbon. At the latter, he also performed the ‘gruh pravesh’ ceremony of the upcoming new mandir.
He and the accompanying sadhus departed London to return to India on Tuesday 5 March 2013.
