What if I miss the Wednesday webcast?
Each episode will be available for on-demand viewing on BAPSChannel, the global BAPS YouTube channel, soon after the final live stream. However, we encourage all devotees to watch the Wednesday webcasts to make this a unified experience of guru-bhakti for the entire international BAPS family.
Who has made ‘The First of its Kind’?
This entire series has been a devotional effort by the volunteers of BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha as a humble tribute to His Holiness Pramukh Swami Maharaj on the occasion of his centennial birth anniversary.
How long has it taken to make ‘The First of its Kind’?
The first meeting for producing this series took place in May 2019. So it has been two and a half years of voluntary service from an international team, inspired by His Holiness Pramukh Swami Maharaj and His Holiness Mahant Swami Maharaj.
