Pujya Gurudevshri’s Presence at Pramukh Swami Maharaj Shatabdi Mahotsav
The centennial of the birth of Pujyashri Pramukh Swami Maharaj was celebrated in Ahmedabad in the form of a month-long grand festivity from 15 Dec – 14 Jan 2023.

Pujyashri Pramukh Swami Maharaj, one of the spiritual titans in the world, was the fifth successor of Bhagwan Swaminarayan. One whose happiness was others’ happiness and led a life of selfless service. So, it was fighting that his centennial celebrations too had a fragrance of service and devotion.

Shrimad Rajchandra Mission Dharampur and BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha both share a cordial relationship and loving bond. Time and again, Pujya Gurudevshri has spoken highly about and drawn inspiration from the various life instances of Pujyashri Pramukh Swami Maharaj. On Sunday, 8 January, 2023, Pujya Gurudevshri attended this pristine occasion. The Master offered flowers at the lotus feet of Pujyashri Pramukh Swami Maharaj; and garlanded Pujyashri Mahant Swami, spiritual head of BAPS.

During the visit, Pujya Gurudevshri was given a tour of Pramukh Swami Nagar, a complex spread across 600 acres. The township featured a gateway honouring Indian culture and a 30-foot tall idol of Pujyashri Pramukh Swami Maharaj. It also consisted of a glow garden named Pramukh Jyoti Udhyaan, a Bal Nagari, a light and sound show, six exhibition pavilions and the Swaminarayan Vishwashanti Mahayagya, which offered a chance for visitors to offer prayers.

In His address to the gathered at the Mahotsav, Pujya Gurudevshri extolled the virtues of Pujyashri Pramukh Swami Maharaj beholding Him as a living Upanishad. The Master said that Pujyashri Pramukh Swami Maharaj was a personality devoid of ego within, devoid of lust in eyes, devoid of hatred in the mind, devoid of disrespectful words, devoid of any negative inclinations, such was His purity. He added, that just like the sun belongs to the entire universe, Pujyashri Pramukh Swami Maharaj too is not confined to only BAPS, He belongs to the entire universe.

May we all draw inspiration from the life of Pujyashri Pramukh Swami Maharaj and lead a life of devotion and selfless service.
