Day 2 – Shobhayatra and Salutations to the Original Manuscript of Shri Atmasiddhi Shastra The evening of 22.October was throbbing with energy as select devotees gathered outside the Yajnasthal for a regal shobhayatra. Trustees of Shrimad Rajchandra Nijabhyas Mandap & Vihar Bhavan Trust (Ahmedabad-Vadva-Idar) walked up to Pujya Gurudevshri with the original manuscript and a ‘paghdi’ (turban) donned by Param Krupalu Dev Himself. Pujya Gurudevshri venerated the sacred scripture and the paghdi with flowers and bowed down to them as a mark of deep love and respect. As Pujya Gurudevshri flagged off the shobhayatra, devotees expressed their jubilation through dances. With bursting elation, heartfelt chants and hands swinging in the air, the entire gathering at the Amphitheatre greeted the shobhayatra. With supreme reverence Pujya Gurudevshri did pujan of the manuscript with flowers, dhoop, deep, ghauli and chamar. As the wisdom-rich verses of Shri Atmasiddhi Shastra were sung the entire assemblage along with Pujya Gurudevshri offered 142 vandanas in honour of the 142 verses; paying their obeisance to the deep spiritual truths propounded through each verse. Twelve laabharthi couples, in lieu of the 12 sections of Shri Atmasiddhi Shastra, along with 320 seekers also had the fortune of participating in a grand ashtaprakari pujan during this time. To commemorate this occasion, a special souvenir lamp with a night light capturing Param Krupalu Dev’s mudra while He composed Shri Atmasiddhi Shastra was launched.
