Dashabdi Mahotsav – Gurukul Surat

Bhagwan Shree Swaminarayan bestowed this universe with His great Mantra ‘Swaminarayan’ for the ultimate salvation of all living beings on earth. On the divine occasion of Golden jubilee celebration of Gurukul Rajkot Pujyapad Shree Jogi Swamiji started the incessant flow of this great Mantra. After the pilgrimage of all six temples founded by Bhagawan Shree Swaminarayan, this incessant Dhoon inhabited at Gurukul Surat. With the unparallel enthusiasm of Yuva Manch, Mahila Manch and students incessant Dhoon and incessant Mantra-Lekhan successfully completed the glorious journey of nine years. With the grace of Shree Hari and elder saints, in spite of many critical situations of flood, earthquake or pestilences incessant Dhoon entered in tenth year on the auspicious day of Magashar Vad Ekadashi, Samvant 2063 which is the same day of Indian calendar on which Bhagwan Shree Swaminarayan gave this Mantra.
