Innocent hearts praying for global peace
From 13th July –
4th September 2004, 9 World Peace Prayers will be conducted by 50 Bal-Balikas
in different areas around UK. These prayers will be done in the form
of Mahapujas. The Suvarna Prarthana Project is part of the Golden Jubilee
Celebrations of the children’s activities of BAPS Swaminarayan
Scores of children have been practising recitation of Sanskrit verses. 50 Bal-Balikas conducted the whole Mahapuja whilst 50 Shishus aged 6-8 had also learnt the Jan-mangal Namavali by heart. All Yajmans were expertly guided through the various rituals by the children. The participants were all given Murtis, Upvastras, and Plates as a memento.
The program also included a sant pravachan, prarthana and ended with everyone standing and collectively singing the National Anthem of India.
Till date, 6 Mahapujas
have been completed in East London, South London, South East London,
Birmingham, Finchley and Luton and have been attended by over 1800 Yajmans.
Other Mahapujas will be conducted in Brent and Leicester before the final one is done in Pujya Swamishri’s presence on September 4th.
All the local Karyakars worked extremely hard to make the Mahapuja a success in their Mandal.
