Posted by News on Sunday, 5 March 2006
Dr. C. Z. Shah education trust, Surat started to organise the best school competition among the schools of Surat city. Competition was for both primary as well as secondary schools.
In the first year itself, as a great surprise Shree Swaminarayan Gurukul, Surat came at the top position in both the sections for the best schools in Surat area.
On 5th March, 2006 in an award distribution celebration held at Jivan Bharati School, Surat District Education officer Mr. Zanzrukiya honoured the Gurukul with awards. Shree Arvindbhai Thesia (Principal, Gujarati Medium School) and Shree Bhaveshbhai Maradiya (Principal, English medium school) accepted the awards on behalf of Gurukul.
Moreover, Shree Swaminarayan Gurukul, Surat is nominated as one of the best five schools in various fields of education.
Bhaktachintamani Vyakhyan-mala is one of the salient features of forthcoming Shree Harikrishna Maharaj Mahotsav.
At Surat, Shree Swaminarayan Temple located at Rampura has its historical importance since the time of Shreeji Maharaj. Sadguru Shree Muktanand Swami had acquired this place by removing the evil spirits by his psychic powers. The Murti of Shree Narayan-muni Dev (Bhagawan Shree Swaminarayan) was given to him by Shreeji Maharaj Himself for the pratishtha at this place.
In this divine ambience of Shree Narayanmuni Dev, a Bhaktachintamani Vyakhanmala (Katha-parayan on Bhaktachintamani) was conducted for three days from March 3rd to 5th, 2006. Satsang Mandals (City zone) govern by Gurukul have arranged for this entire celebration. On March 4th, students of Gurukul, Surat had presented cultural programmes.
In the morning of March 5th, group Mahapooj was arranged. It was decided to perform group Mahapooja for 1551 devotees. But to take the advantage of Mahapooja in the shelter of Shree Narayanmuni Dev and in the pious company of holy saints is great fortune. Nearly 2378 devotees took the advantage of this group Mahapooja. Arrangement was nice and comfort-giving. Shree Lavjibhai, Shree babubhai, Nathubhai, Shree Sureshbhai Gabani, Shree Ganeshbhai Dungarani, Shree Jayantibhai, Chhaganbhai, Shree Tulasibhai Goti, Shree Jeranbhai Virani, Shree Shamjibhagat and other senior devotees participated with saints. It was an astonishing and devotional experience. Mahapooja was followed by Satsang assembly. Pujya Narayanprasad Swami (Mahantshree, Temple Rampura), Pujya Dharmavallabh Swami and other saints from Kubernagar, Kalakunj, Dabholi, Amaroli graced the occasion with their holy presence.
In the blood donation camp 35 bottles of blood was donated.
