On Saturday, June 18, 2022, the B.A.P.S Swaminarayan Research Institute, USA, was inaugurated in Robbinsville, New Jersey, at the site of Swaminarayan Akshardham – North America.

In the morning, hundreds of swamis and devotees gathered to participate in a ‘Satsang DikshāHomātmakPāth.’ This unique yagna involved offerings to a sacred fire while selected verses from the Satsang Diksha were recited. The yagna was performed to pray for world peace along with an auspicious beginning for the research institute. Children sang Vedic peace prayers and recited Sanskrit verses. Thousands witnessed the historic ceremony in person and via live telecast across North America and worldwide.

His Holiness Mahant Swami Maharaj joined the ceremony virtually from Ahmedabad, India, and inaugurated the institute with the lighting the inaugural lamp (deep -pragatya) symbolizing the spreading of the light of knowledge throughout the world. Diyas were subsequently lit by members of the assembly present in New Jersey. Mahant Swami Maharaj then blessed the attendees as well as all the people who remotely joined the live broadcast.

Addressing the assembly, Mahant Swami Maharaj said, “Yogiji Maharaj had envisioned such an institute and was passionate about youths learning and discoursing in Sanskrit. The research institute has fulfilled this vision. May students excel in their studies and work together to serve society, expanding the circle of unity across the world. In the spirit of “VasudhaivaKutumbakam,” meaning the world is one family; let’s reach out to extend the circle of global harmony.”

The event took place in the presence of over 115 representatives from over 50 Hindu Mandirs and organizations, guests and scholars. HH Mahant Swami Maharaj had sent Mahamahopadhyaya Pujya Bhadreshdas Swami from India to preside over the inauguration event.MahamahopadhyayaPujya Bhadreshdas Swami is one of the world’s leading scholars on Hindu philosophy and Sanskrit and the author of the  Sanskrit commentarial and philosophical texts, the Swaminarayan-Bhashyamand the Swaminarayan-Siddhanta-Sudha.

The ‘BAPS Swaminarayan Research Institute’ is the first such center of learning and research of Indian languages and Hindu scriptures in the Swaminarayan tradition to open in the United States. The impetus for the institute in Robbinsville has been a growing interest from members of the community to learn Sanskrit and gain a deeper understanding of Hindu scriptures. Through its rigorous teaching of Sanskrit, Vedic and classical literature, as well as Hindu beliefs, values and practices, the Institute will strive to foster social harmony, interfaith dialogue, public engagement and academic discourse.  It will generate opportunities for value-based education, innovative research and creative expression.
