Ramnavmi & Shree Swaminarayan Jayanti – Friday 15th April /

Dharma ghera Anand bhayo, Jay bolo Ghanshyam ki… Chhapaiya me Lal bhayo, Jay bolo Ghanshyam ki…”

Ramnavami, or the birthday of Lord Ram, falls on Chaitra Sud Navmi. It was also on this day in VS 1837 that Shree Swaminarayan Bhagvan was born in Chhapaiya. As such, this day marks one of the most auspicious festivals in our sampraday.

Devotees spend the day fasting, making grand offerings of food to Bhagvan, and in the evening singing kirtans, playing raas and performing aarti.

Our mandir will be holding the Ram Janma Aarti at 12pm, and Janmotsav, aarti and raas from 7.30pm.
