On the weekend of 14-15 December 2019, thousands of devotees gathered at BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, London, to celebrate 200 glorious years of Bhagwan Swaminarayan’s Vachanamrut through a one-off commemorative production, ‘The Vachanamrut: An Unexpected Journey’.
The four-hour theatrical show, through a huge cast, moving props, animated backdrops, musical numbers, detailed sets and an information- and entertainment-packed seven-act playscript, presented key messages from the Vachanamrut like never seen before.
Through the inspiration of HH Mahant Swami Maharaj, the entire programme was conceived, created, produced, directed and performed by the children and youth of BAPS, as a tribute to Bhagwan Swaminarayan.
