SKS Swaminarayan Temple East London is proud to be celebrating its 30th anniversary this summer! From the 13th to the 20th August 2017, the mandir will be transformed, festivity will be in the air and devotion to our beloved Ghanshyam Maharaj will be heightened as we also mark His 15th year in East London.
With fond memories of the 25th celebrations still lingering, we want to make this year’s utsav bigger and better, and to commemorate the spirit of community as without all our haribhaktos coming together on so many occasions in the past, the mandir would not be where it is today, nor would it have been able to make it’s charitable mark on the wider community.
To launch the event and emphasize the magic that individuals can create by working together, Xmas Funday 2016 at the mandir got everyone involved in painting a small piece of the utsav logo which we saw come together at the very end. Keep an eye out for this piece of art during the utsav week!
There are a series of Niyamathons taking place in the run up, as we strive to achieve the target of 108,000 Pradakshina, 108,000 Janmangal Namavali recitation and countless more personal niyams that our haribhaktos have set themselves.
We invite you all to join in the festivities of Utsav30, to make your mark and celebrate our beautiful Ghanshyam Maharaj – may He continue to guide us and give us strength to keep making a difference to our community, near and far.
