Abohar: Pramukh Swami Maharaj’s 99th Janam Jayanti was joyously celebrated around the world, including in the UK and Europe, with a series of devotional offerings and enlightening online programmes.

 Devotees had safely marked this auspicious occasion from their respective homes with festive decorations and devotional artwork. Young and senior members of families also decorated their “ghar mandirs” and placed intricately crafted garlands around the murti of Pramukh Swami Maharaj.

As part of a devotional initiative by Kishore-Kishori Mandal, many young devotees participated in the ‘Pramukh Parva Bake Off’ in which they made and offered a variety of celebratory desserts – cakes, biscuits, puddings, etc. – to mark the occasion.

Anjali Patel, a mother from London, said, “Our daughters had so much fun baking a birthday cake and making colourful birthday cards. The evening programme was wonderful. Seeing the footage of those unforgettable celebrations over the years, many of which we saw for the first time, was truly heart-warming and inspiring.”

In the lead-up to the day, the Bal-Balika Mandal, Kishore-Kishori Mandal, Yuvak-Yuvati Mandal, Sanyukta Mandal and Mahila Mandal all focused their weekly sabhas on the divine virtues of Pramukh Swami Maharaj.

Thousands of devotees joined the webcast from India to enjoy an absorbing programme that provided an immersive spiritual experience paying homage to Pramukh Swami Maharaj’s divine, saintly life.

Another online programme took viewers on a historical journey of Pramukh Swami Maharaj’s birth celebrations from 1965 to 2020. The production included a montage of rare footage interspersed with commentaries and eye-witness accounts from senior swamis and devotees who shared examples of Pramukh Swami Maharaj’s profound humility and selfless love for others.
