Day 1 - Wednesday 25th August, 2004 

Over 450 kishores and 320 kishoris from across the UK and Europe gathered at Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, Neasden, London for the National Kishore-Kishori Summer Shibir 2004, 'Swaminarayan Sanskruti'. In the morning after the puja, Pramukh Swami Maharaj opened the Shibir with kishores chanting Vedic shloks. Kishores garlanded and also presented Harikrishna Maharaj and Swamishri with an identification badge. Thereafter, Swamishri blessed the assembled kishores and kishoris so that they understand the essence of Swaminarayan Sanskruti and also explained how fortunate they were to be part of the Shibir. The kishoris held an afternoon programme to honour Harikrishna Maharaj.

In the evening, Harikrishna Maharaj was treated to a spectacular Tula in the presence of Swamishri. Kishores welcomed Harikrishna Maharaj with a dance and then portrayed Swamishri's devotion to Thakorji through multimedia presentations and speeches. The programme ended with kishores offering their devotion to Thakorji and greeting Swamishri. In his blessings, Swamishri talked of the importance of devotion to God coupled with understanding the glory of God.
