9 January 2002: Murti Pratishtha Ceremony

Today was the Bicentenary day of the Swaminarayan Mahamantra and the 50th consecration anniversary of the Akshar Purushottam Swaminarayan Mandir established by Shastriji Maharaj.
Swamishri performed the murti pratishtha of Shri Ghanshyam Maharaj and pujan of Shastriji Maharaj in the first sanctum of the mandir.

During the murti pratishtha assembly, Swamishri honored the descendants of Dada Khachar and Jiva Khachar and blessed them. In his blessings, Swamishri said, "There is no greater pilgrim place for us than Gadhpur. Shriji Maharaj stayed here, performed lila and blessed all with His divine happiness. If we remember this, it will make us immensely happy. Shriji Maharaj gave the Swaminarayan mantra in Faneni and spread the mantra from Gadhada. Every grain of soil in Gadhada is holy." Then Swamishri narrated the devotion of Jiva Khachar and Dada Khachar.
