PRATISTHA DIN - Foundation Day

For fourteen years, from 1947 to 1961, Shreyas was located in Shahibaug area, Amdavad. Shreyas shifted to a Hill in Elis bridge area, in 1961, then on the outskirts of the city of Amdavad. On the eve of Sunday, the 2nd July, 1961, the Pratistha (consecration) ceremony took place. Thereafter, every year, July 2nd is celebrated as the birthday of Shreyas Hill. The celebration begins with a young child walking to the altar holding a ignited torch and lighting the altar. The Chief Guest, Trustee, Chairperson of Shreyas Matrumilan (Mother’s grope), Co-ordinators of Shreyas Centers and representatives (pratinidhis) of Shreyas Sabha (children’s Council) - each hold a lighted torch to celebrate the event. After the speech of the Chief Guest Mallika Sarabhai - Shreyas alumni, all the representatives of the congregation gets lighted torches. Thereafter, coriander seeds and jiggery are distributed.

               On the 2nd of July, the retiring representatives pass on the torches to the incoming pratinidhis.

               On July 2nd, the Shreyas Thanksgiving Day, we remember with gratitude all who have helped to make

 Shreyas what it is today.

 

               This day also inspires us to light our torches from one another and keep them burning.

 

               Songs: “Dhanya- ho Niraankari” (Gujarati version of the Sermon on the Mount)

                            “Deepshikha Pragatavo” - a chant from the Samaveda.
