 The asthipushpa (ashes) of BAPS Swaminarayan organisation former chief Pramukh Swamiji were immersed last evening in Gondali river in Gujarat.  Notably Pramukh Swamiji had breathed his last on August 13 and his mortal remains were confined to flames in the presence of more than two lac persons who had arrived from different countries at Sarangpur village.The asthipushpa (sacred remains) of Brahmaswarup Shastriji Maharaj, Brahmaswarup Yogiji Maharaj and Brahmaswarup Pramukh Swami Maharaj were ceremonially taken on a Palki yatra, circumambulating the Akshar Mandir five times. The sadhus took turns to lift the Palki in which pots of the asthipushpa were placed. Asthipushpa were lifted by Palki to the Akshar Ghat on the banks of the River Gondali. From there, they were transported in a small boat to the decorated temporary, stage set up in the water for the two days of rituals. Param Pujya Mahant Swami Maharaj and the sadguru sadhus were seated on this stage from where they performed the Vedic Mahapuja of the asthipushpa. Around 1,500 yajmans seated on the banks of the river also participated in the mahapuja.The ritual dispersal of Pragat Brahmaswarup Pramukh Swami Maharaj’s sacred ashes into the River Gondali took place from the temporary stage. In each of the four cardinal directions, a pot containing some of the sacred ashes had been placed. Beginning in the north-facing direction, Param Pujya Mahant Swami Maharaj joined Pujya Dr Swami and Pujya Viveksagar Swami in dispersing the ashes into the river. Then, moving clockwise, he accompanied the sadhus at each location in dispersing the sacred ashes into the water – east: Pujya Tyagvallabh Swami and Narayancharan Swami, south: Pujya Ishwarcharan Swami and Dharmacharan Swami, and west: Pujya Ghanshyamcharan Swami and Krishnavallabh Swami.

Param Pujya Mahant Swami Maharaj placed a pot containing the sacred ashes of Shastriji Maharaj, Yogiji Maharaj and Pramukh Swami Maharaj at the base of a small memorial spot in the center of the Brahma Kund and sealed the memorial spot by covering it with the carved marble footprints of Bhagwan Swaminarayan. After performing pujan and pradakshina of the memorial spot, Param Pujya Mahant Swami Maharaj took a ritual dip in the waters of the Brahma Kund and then went to the Akshar Kund.
