Grand Inauguration of Raj Sabhagruh

On December 26, devotees gathered for the historic inauguration of a magnificent structure designed to illuminate the paths of thousands of seekers through the light of knowledge and meditation.

The pleasant winter morning exuded festivity as Pujyashri Mahant Swami Maharaj arrived at the Ashram. He visited the Amphitheatre with Pujya Gurudevshri to pay homage to the 34–feet idol of Param Krupalu Dev where he performed Charan pakshal and offered flowers. He also graced the majestic Jinmandir and adorned the idol of Bhagwan Mahavir with a garland and crown.

At the Raj Sabhagruh, Pujya Gurudevshri and Pujyashri Mahant Swami Maharaj, triggered the parting of a red curtain at the main entrance to inaugurate this colossal place of knowledge and meditation. After unveiling of the plaque, Pujya Gurudevshri and Pujyashri Mahant Swami Maharaj performed pujan on the idols of Param Krupalu Dev and Bhagwan Swaminarayan. This magnanimous moment revealed the Masters’ mutual love, silently affirming the close bond between the two organisations.

After a ribbon ceremony by the pious hands of both the Masters, the plush arena’s doors swung open, ushering in an air of devotion. Amidst a shower of sweet-smelling rose petals, the Masters took the stage.

Pujya Gurudevshri addressed the audience, sharing that Pujyashri Mahant Swami Maharaj emits waves of purity, attuning to which one experiences transformation. He expressed deep gratitude, stating that Pujyashri Mahant Swami Maharaj’s mere presence is enough, as every moment spent with a Master is auspicious and joy-giving. On this glorious occasion, Pujya Brahmavihari Swami expressed that Pujyashri Mahant Swami Maharaj’s visit for the Raj Sabhagruh inauguration was beyond all logic; it was driven solely by the love for Pujya Gurudevshri and the Mission.

Despite his advanced age, Pujyashri Mahant Swami Maharaj blessed the conglomeration, stating that it was the thread of love that pulled him to the Ashram for this memorable occasion. Singing the glory of the lineage, Pujyashri Mahant Swami Maharaj expressed that Pujya Gurudevshri is carrying forward the true essence of spirituality, in its purest form, as laid down by Bhagwan Mahavir and Param Krupalu Dev. Pujya Gurudevshri lovingly felicitated Pujyashri Mahant Swami Maharaj with a garland. Pujyashri Mahant Swami Maharaj reciprocated his love for Pujya Gurudevshri with a shawl and extended an invitation for the inauguration of their upcoming temple in Abu Dhabi. Pujya Gurudevshri also inaugurated other spaces of the complex like the meditation hall, library, multipurpose halls, classrooms, visitor’s auditorium and meet-and-greet area.

Conceived by Pujya Gurudevshri, this testament to spiritual significance and architectural brilliance – the Raj Sabhagruh – is an iconic masterpiece in marble, with a symbolically shaped lantern to represent the radiant light of knowledge. With height equivalent to a 12-storey building and having an area of 1.65 lakh sq. feet, it features a mega-sized auditorium, meditation hall, library, multipurpose halls, classrooms, visitor’s auditorium, meet-and great area and has a 25,000 sq. feet area for an upcoming museum. It has a capacity for 10,000 people and has a 1.50 lakh sq. feet plaza surrounding the structure.

The auditorium is equipped with three integrated LED screens and cutting-edge audio-video systems. The welcoming foyer, adorned with terrazzo flooring, sets the tone for a warm reception. Honoured with the prestigious AR Future Project – Cultural Regeneration Award 2022 by the Architectural Review Magazine, Raj Sabhagruh is a symbol of spiritual enrichment and architectural excellence.

Thanks to Pujya Gurudevshri’s exalted inner state, His profound wisdom will flow in the Raj Sabhagruh; reverberating the precious legacy of Bhagwan Mahavir and Param Krupalu Dev’s teachings and will be a source of spiritual welfare from now until forever!
