With the blessings of His Holiness Mahant Swami Maharaj, the tireless dedication, unwavering faith, and relentless efforts of the devotees in Boston reached a momentous milestone on June 10, 2023. The bhumi pujan ceremony, held in Tyngsboro, Massachusetts, marked the sanctification of the site for the new Satsang Activity Center & Haveli. This joyous occasion was presided over by Sadguru Pujya Doctor Swami and Sadguru Pujya Ishwarcharan Swami, along with devotees from New England.
The New England region has been blessed by the vicharan (spiritual visits) of Pramukh Swami Maharaj and Mahant Swami Maharaj over the years. As the community and devotees have grown, the existing facilities have become insufficient to meet the expanding needs of the Hindu-American community in terms of cultural, social, and religious activities. Therefore, the construction of the new Mandir and Satsang Activity Center was imperative to address these evolving requirements.
The bhumi pujan ceremony included a traditional ritual that blessed the land amid Vedic chants and prayers for peace and well-being to prevail throughout the local community. Following the Vedic mahapuja, the program began with prayers and an enlightening video presentation that traced the historical journey of the Satsang Mandal. In his address, Pujya Doctor Swami provided motivation and encouragement to volunteers and worshippers, urging them to collaborate and work collectively to bring Mahant Swami Maharaj's vision to fruition. Additionally, Pujya Ishwarcharan Swami delivered inspiring words that resonated with the hearts of all attendees. The auspicious occasion concluded with Mahant Swami Maharaj's blessings, conveyed through a heartfelt video message.
The new Mandir and Satsang Activity Center will serve as a vibrant hub for a wide range of cultural, social, and religious activities, catering to the needs of the Hindu-American community. It will also become a central location for community service initiatives, further strengthening the bonds of unity and benevolence among the devotees.
