The fourth day of the Spiritual Awareness Convention commenced with the continuing recital of the Shree Ghanshyam Leelamrut scripture. His Divine Holiness Acharya Swamishree then showered His divine ashirwad on everyone before the entire congregation took Prasad thaar.
At approximately 3pm, Acharya Swamishree, sants and the entire congregation of disciples proceeded to the starting point of the nagar-yatra. Acharya Swamishree graced the chariot, in the shape of a pure white palace, which had been created by Jeevanpran Swamibapa’s devoted sants.
The rain that had been pouring throughout the day ceased as, in turn, both Shree Swamibapa Pipe Band of Bolton and Shree Muktajeevan Pipe Band of London saluted Lord Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa and Acharya Swamishree.
Both Bands, as well singers and dancers, performed throughout the procession as it passed through the streets of Bolton towards the temple on Dean Road, attracting hundreds of onlookers along the route. Acharya Swamishree gave His divine darshan throughout the nagar-yatra. Despite the occasional bursts of rain, everyone present, both congregation members and neighbours of the temple, enjoyed the divine darshan of this magnificent event.
The nagar-yatra ended in the temple grounds at around 6pm before everyone present took prasad thaar. This concluded the fourth day’s events.
