Devotees and well-wishers gathered at BAPS Mandirs to joyfully celebrate the 100th birth anniversary of His Holiness Pramukh Swami Maharaj. The event titled “A beacon of values, hope and faith,” the cultural program organized by women, for women, took place at over 100 mandirs across North America.
The North American women’s programs centered on an immersive experience where guests could understand and experience the lasting impact that Pramukh Swami Maharaj had on individuals, families, and communities.
HH Pramukh Swami Maharaj’s life motto was: “In the joy of others, lies our own. In the progress of others, rests our own. In the good of others, abides our own. Know this to be the key to peace and happiness.” Grounded in this very motto, the program highlighted how Pramukh Swami instilled timeless values in leaders, was a source of hope for devotees, and guided individuals to become the best versions of themselves through expressions of faith.
The program included a colorful portrayal of timeless values, experiences, and stories from the past and present day, performed live by women, insightful multimedia presentations, and energizing dances.
As the emotional program ended, hundreds paid their respects and gratitude to Pramukh Swami Maharaj for the spiritual guidance, enrichment & upliftment, and for deeply touching their hearts. Attendees left with a renewed commitment to continuing HH Pramukh Swami Maharaj’s legacy by imbibing his life’s motto as their own.
