Murti Pratistha Mahotsav

Press Release

Shree Swaminarayan Temple Boston, invites you to attend the grand celebration of Murti Prathishta Mahotasav and Shrimad Bhagwat Saptah to be held August 13 - 20th at Lowell, MA.

His Holiness 1008 Acharya Shri Koshalendraprasadji Maharajshri will bless and perform the ceremonial rituals of the Murti Pratistha Mahotsav.

Grand Temple enshrines marble deities of Shri Ghanshyam Maharaj, Shri Radha Krishna Dev, Shri Nar Narayan Dev, Shri Laxmi Narayan Dev, Shri Dharma Dev Bhakti Mata, Hanumanji, Ganapatiji, Shri Ram Sita, Shrinathji, Tirupati Balaji, Umiya Mala, Shankar Parvatiji including Shiv Lng, and Surya Narayan Dev.

The prime objective of International Swaminarayan Satsang Organisation (I.S.S.O.) is "To advance the Sanatan Dharma, in accordance with the principles and teachings of the Swaminarayan Sampraday, founded and ordained by Lord Shree Sahajanand Swami", enabling Lord Shree Swaminarayan's devotees from both the Nar Narayan Dev Gadi (Ahmedabad) & Laxmi Narayan Dev Gadi (Vadtal) to practice their religious duties in harmony. This achieved, the efforts of all the followers of the Sampraday can be polarised, allowing for joint activities to be undertaken. In turn, this will enable us to meet the challenges we are faced with today in giving our youth a religious experience that they can understand and practice themselves.

H.H. Acharya Maharajshri 1008 Shree Tejendraprasadji's divine vision was to create a global Satsang network of young and old satsangis across the continents. Thus he founded I.S.S.O. in the USA on Vijya Dashmi of 1978. In those days, the challenge was to meet the religious needs of the present generations, rather than the future ones. Through the inspirational blessings of H.H. Acharya Maharajshri, a single devotee offered to travel all over the USA with His Holiness. The result was the creation of numerous Chapters (branches) across the North American continent. Today, there are Swaminarayan Temples in; Weehawken (NJ), Boston (MA), Chicago (Ill), Houston (TX) & Los Angeles (CA). Thousands of devotees participate in regular satsang sabhas in the remaining Chapters. With regular nurturing the satsang in USA continues to blossom into a lotus of many petal-like Satsangis.
