Gurupoornima - Gurukul Rajkot


Ashadh Sud poonam is celebrated as Gurupurnima all over India. On this day Guru must be worshipped by the disciples. It is our Indian tradition.

On this day at Rajkot Gurukul, Gurupoojan was held in presence of large numberof devotees. The saints from all branches were present here.

Celebration started with musical warm welcome to Param Pujya Sadguru Mahant Swami Shree Devkrishnadasji Swami and Param Pujya Sadguru Shastri Swami Shree Madhavpriyadasji Swami. All devotees welcomed them with Jayghosh of Shree Swaminarayan Bhagawan.

Worth seeing poojan was done by senior saints of Lord Shree Hari and His wooden Paduka. They also worshipped Durudev Shastriji Maharaj Shree Dharmajivandasji Swami with Chandan-kumkum and blossoming flowers. Both the saints performed poojan of pujyapad Shree Jogi Swamiji with flower-shawl.

It was the memorable moment, when both the Sadguru saints embraced each-other and garlanded. Thousands of eyes performed this divine Darshan with full of tears.

A book written on Pujya Jogiswami’s life, by Sdg. Shastri Shree Madhavpriyadasji Swami was inaugurated in this function by Sdg. Mahant Shree Devkrishnadasji Swami. Not only this but also the audio cassette named ‘Guru Vandana’ part 1 and 2 was declared opened by Kothari Swami Shree Harijivandasji Swami. All the bhajans are sang by Niranjan Pandya as well as Hasmukh Patdiya. It is a great pleasure that these bhajans are in ancient tine and are written by Pujya Madhavpriyadasji Swami.

At this time totally new dining hall was inaugurated by Pujya Shree Jogi Swamiji. There was a nice dance with drama based on Guru-poojan by students of Surat Gurukul. It was really charming and attractive. Occasional speeches in Sanskrit and Spanish languages were delivered by the students of Darshanam Sanskrit Mahavidyalay from SGVP- Gurukul Chharodi.

There was a touching meeting of alumni of Gurukul in presence of Sadguru Saints and under the guidance of Purani Shree Dharmavallabh Swami. He said that alumni are the real wealth of Gurukul.
