In the Puranas, we are told of the unlimited blessings bestowed upon those dharmic persons who arrange the installation of the deity of Bhagavan Shri Krishna in a Mandir. Due to the blessings of their families, Bhagavan and Shri Sadgurudev Ji Maharaj, the Bhandari Family of Manchester have taken up the holy vow to arrange for the installation of Bhagavan Shri Bala Krishna Bhagavan (Shri Lala Ji) in all the Mandirs in the U.K. which have yet to be blessed by his presence.
So, with the blessings of Shri Sadgurudev Ji Maharaj, the family made preparations along with the trustees and Pandit ji from the Gandhi Hall Mandir in Manchester, and on the 5th October, Shri Shri Laddu Gopal Ji was installed according to Vedic Rituals of our Sanatan Vaishnava Dharma in all the pomp and glory that the Mancunian devotees could muster.
Shri Laddu Gopal Ji was taken on procession around the Mandir, followed by the invitation of the various Mandala deities, the pujas, then the adhivasas, followed by the Prana Pratishtha, in which Shri Sadgurudev Ji Maharaj himself invoked the presence of the Lord in his Archa Vigraha in order to bless the devotees who attend the Gandhi Hall Mandir for their devotions.
Shri Sadgurudev Ji Maharaj then gave Ashirvachana, in which he blessed all those present with the sanctifying words and purifying teachings of our Vedic scriptures and as if as a sign of the perfect manner in which the Pratishtha was accomplished, a new-born Calf from a local farm was paraded infront of the Lord, and then offered KrishnaPrasadi Puja. This was followed by Aarati and prasadam.
Shri Radha Golokavihari Bhagavan Shri Radha Sarveshwara will continue to bless Anil Ji, Anita Mata (Neera), Sahil and Rishabh for their endeavours to facilitate devotion of the Lord throughout the country.
Shri Shri Bal Krishna Lal Ki JAY!
