Rajnath Singh, the Defence Minister of India, visited BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, London – popularly known as ‘Neasden Temple’.

 Mr Singh was joined by Vikram Doraiswamy, the High Commissioner of India to the United Kingdom, and a delegation from India’s Ministry of Defence.They were welcomed by Yogvivek Swami and local trustees.

The dignitaries participated in the abhishek of Shri Nilkanth Varni Maharaj, before interacting with volunteers who contributed to the Mandir’s operations and community initiatives. The exchange offered a glimpse into the Mandir’s extensive community service efforts and the dedication of its volunteers towards selflessly serving humanity, including its contributions to British society.

The Minister also met the resident swamis, allowing for deeper discussions on spirituality and culture, as well as the Mandir’s role as a cultural ambassador and its commitment to upholding timeless Hindu values.

Sharing his impressions Mr. Singh said, “I have experienced tremendous peace at BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in London and have offered personal prayers that I am able to live totally without ego. By the influence of Sanatan Dharma, one's ego evaporates. This happens only by the blessings of God. This is the experience I had here.”

Jitu Patel, Chairperson of BAPS UK & Europe, said, “We would like to thank Rajnath Singh ji for taking the time from his busy schedule to visit the Mandir. Our strong ties and positive engagement with the High Commission of India serve as a platform to contribute to shared British and Indian values.”
