This video was taken in May of 1987 by Chaturbhai Jerambhai Babaria on his visit to Kukavav village in the Amreli district of Gujarat State, India on the occasion of Murti Pratishtha. Murti Pratishtha was done in the presence of his Holiness Shastriji Maharaj Dharamjivan Dasji Swami (pioneer of the Swaminarayan Gurukul system).

Also in attendance:

  • Shastri Vrajlalbhai (priest)
  • Swami Harjivan Dasji Swami (Mahant of the Jetpur Swaminarayan Temple)
  • Mahant of the Junagadh Swaminarayan Temple
  • His Holiness P. Devakrishna Dasji Swami
  • Shastri Shri Madhavpriya Dasji
  • Swami Gyanswaruo Dasji Swami
  • Mayor of Kukavav village: Shri Lakshmanbhai Bhagwanbhai Patel (Sukhadia), (son of Karamshibhai B. Babaria’s sister Putali Ben)
  • Hirjibhai Karamshibhai Babaria (brother of my father)
  • Jerambhai Karamashibhai Babaria (my father)
  • Shastri Shri Madhavpriya Dasji remembering Dhirubhai J. Babaria
  • Gordhanbhai L. Paghadal
  • Manubhai H. Patolia
  • Chaturbhai N. Vaghasia (accompanied by his sons, Ghanshyam & Rahul) received the blessing of Shastriji Maharaj
  • other Saints and devotees

Many other members of the Babaria family received his blessings as well because my father’s brother Hirajibhai used to live in Kukavav village and our father used to live in Devarajia, Amreli, Gujarat, India. This video was on an old VHS tape and was difficult to see clearly but our new devotee Ananda Bhagat (Andrew Scott) fixed it through his inspiration from Lord Swaminarayan.
