'Abhishek' is an ancient Vedic ritual of pouring holy water upon the head of God or His murti to honor Him and to attain His blessings for inner peace and prosperity. Here the sacred waters of Ganga is ceremoniously poured upon the murti of Bhagwan Swaminarayan.

Come and perform 'Abhishek' and may this ritual fill our human life with His divine virtues of faith, fearlessness, humility, self-control, love and peace and also fulfill our innermost prayers and wishes.

Established in 1907, BAPS was founded on the principle that the path to a better self and society is through personal dedication and faith in God. This remains true today as it did then. This message is the essence of life for countless people worldwide, providing thousands with a renewed sense of purpose and faith. It reaches the dusty paths of rural India, the suburban streets of North America, and the homes and hearts of millions across the world.

Through the selfless legacy of Shastriji Maharaj, Yogiji Maharaj and Pramukh Swami Maharaj these values manifest today in the lives of thousands who have cleansed their hearts and strive for a life free from addictions and desire.

Join us as we celebrate 100 years of values and service in the Centenary celebrations. A dazzling event of dances, dramas, and music will speak of the past, address the present and inspire future prosperity


Pramukh Swami Maharaj is the fifth spiritual successor of Bhagwan Swaminarayan and the present spiritual leader of BAPS. He leads an austere life of lifetime celibacy, without personal wealth or comfort. Representing the essence of Hinduism, his compassion for humanity, universal wisdom and striking simplicity have touched many world leaders. But most important is his quiet, undisturbed love for God which rises beyond all borders of nation, race and religion.

Come join us as we collectively offer our heartfelt devotion to Bhagwan Swaminarayan and Guru HDH Pramukh Swami Maharaj on this auspicious day of Gurubhakti Din.

On this day let us all join our hands in prayer and request God and our Guru to continue to guide us and show the path of success and salvation, spiritual and eternal bliss.
