Pramukh Swami Maharaj's Africa Visit
Murti-Pratishtha Mahotsav, Gaborone, Botswana
14 to 18 September 2004
Despite ill health, Swamishri had come specially for the inauguration of this new BAPS mandir. Swamishri performed the traditional Vedic murti-pratishtha ceremony of Shri Akshar Purushottam Maharaj, Shri Radha-Krishna Dev and the Guru Parampara. Then blessing the assembly Swamishri said, “The aim of human life is liberation. That is why, to guide man, Bhagwan Purushottam Narayan incarnated on this earth with His abode (ideal devotee – Gunatitanand Swami). With the blessings of Shastriji Maharaj and Yogiji Maharaj, Satsang has grown in India and abroad.
“Gardens give fragrance to all, water quenches thirst, trees give shade, similarly, God and His Sadhu work to benefit others. By their darshan, done knowingly or unknowingly, one attains peace – just as one becomes immortal if one drinks nectar even unknowingly.”
In the evening assembly, the Indian High Commissioner, Lal Mavana, was present.
