The historic and iconic inauguration of the BAPS Hindu Mandir in Abu Dhabi is set for 14 February 2024. A monumental achievement born from years of devoted prayers and selfless volunteer efforts. On 2 August 2023, in Robbinsville, New Jersey, following His Holiness Mahant Swami Maharaj’s morning puja, Pujya Brahmavihari Swami presented a beautiful garland to Mahant Swami Maharaj along with a heartfelt invitation. The garland was devoutly crafted with meticulous care by the female volunteers of the United Arab Emirates. Each of its components held symbolic meaning: the rose gold palm leaves had hand-written etching of the 108 names of Bhagwan Swaminarayan. Each leaf held a date-shaped saffron ball adding a fragrant touch. In the center, the logo of the Festival of Harmony stood as a unifying emblem. At the end, His Holiness Mahant Swami Maharaj shared his thoughts about this project as a part of his morning discourse. Stating that the Mandir is happening due to the divine will of God and that the values placed in the Mandir blend with people and the world. Highlighting the uniqueness of this project, he stated, “The Mandir is like a lotus blossoming in the desert,” reflecting the impact this Mandir will make on the world, humanity, and the future.
