The atmosphere of bhakti surrounding the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir was enhanced on April 5 by an evening of bhajans, folk dances, thought-provoking discourses, and inspirational skits as devotees of the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Sanstha celebrated the 228th birthday of Bhagwan Swaminarayan founder of the Sampraday.

Idols of Akshar and Purushottam dressed in elegant outfits, Thakorji sitting on an ornate swing, and the festive décor of the Sabha Mandap beckoned all. Following the theme of ‘Harijan Sacha Re Je Ur Ma Himat Rakhe’, the program commenced with shlokas officially inviting Bhagwan into the assembly and continued with bhajans sung in the melodious voices of children establishing the devotional course of the evening.
