Shri Nilkanth Varni Abhishek

This is a special ceremony in which water is poured over the metallic image of Shri Nilkanth Varni (Bhagwan Swaminarayan) to honour him, attain his blessings, and pay tribute to his arduous journey as a teenager. It is also an opportunity for devotees to pray, asking God to cleanse one’s soul.
