We present another episode of Bhagwan Swaminarayan’s historic pilgrimage of India as a child-yogi named Neelkanth Varni. At 11 years, Neelkanth trekked through the formidable Himalayan mountains and fathomless chasms to reach Badrivan. Here, he performed intense austerities for three long months in the bone-chilling winter season.
This 5th episode of ‘Swaminarayan Charitra’ features his awe-inspiring journey from Badrinath to Mansarovar. As a tender child, he travelled bare-chested, bare-footed and alone, facing insurmountable hardships to accomplish his unparalleled pilgrimage to Mansarovar in Tibet.
Thereafter, his journey to Nepal brought him to the quaint town of Vanshipur, where he accepted the devotion of the king and queen, but declined the proposals of marriage to their daughters and sovereignty of their kingdom.
The incidents from the life and work of Bhagwan Swaminarayan have been brought to life through animation technology. The dialogues and background score pluck one’s heartstrings with a spectrum of emotions, while technology enlightens and allows viewers to experience Neelkanth’s incredible pilgrimage.
