Every temple created by Pramukh Swami like embassy of Indian Hindu heritage: BAPS scholar


Bochasanwasi Akshar Purushottam Swaminarayan Sanstha (BAPS) scholar Aksharvatsaldas Swami Sunday said that every temple created by Pramukh Swami Maharaj around the world is like an embassy of Indian Hindu heritage.

The BAPS scholar  was speaking during the programme celebrating Pramukh Swami Maharaj’s establishment of 1,231 temples worldwide before an assembly of around two lakh visitors during the fourth evening programme of the Pramukh Swami Maharaj Centenary Celebrations in Ahmedabad.

“Every temple created by Pramukh Swami Maharaj around the world is like an embassy of Indian Hindu heritage. Pramukh Swami Maharaj’s temples inspired youths towards spirituality and service. Thus, when thousands of students were stranded in the Russia-Ukraine War, volunteers from the BAPS temples in London and New Jersey began relief work for them immediately,” said BAPS scholar Aksharvatsaldas Swami said at the evening sabha of “My Mandir, My Home:Celebrating Mandirs”.

He added that Hindus made temples wherever they went.
