63rd Pramukh Varni Din Celebration
Swamishri gave darshan to all from Akshar Jharukho in the afternoon. In the evening the celebration assembly included a traditional dance by schoolchildren of BAPS Vidyamandir and a skit by youths from the Youth Training Centre. A traditional dance was performed by children on the bhajan ‘Swamiji to Mahãpratãpi…’ while Swamishri rang a bell and waved the BAPS flag from Akshar Jharukho. Senior sadhus honoured Swamishri with garlands and a shawl of flowers. Then Swamishri blessed all, saying, “By the grace of Shastriji Maharaj you have all come here with enthusiasm to celebrate this festival. In the time of Shastriji Maharaj no one had imagined that our Satsang would grow to such proportions. At that time Yogiji Maharaj, Nirgun Swami and Shastriji Maharaj were actively engaged in inspiring satsang. Their talks were full of energy and joy. The devotees, too, were spiritually charged and excited…” Thereafter, Pujya Viveksagar Swami narrated the historic appointment of Swamishri as President at Ambli Vali Pol.
