His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the Crown Prince, Deputy Supreme Commander and Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Bahrain, met Pujya Brahmavihari Swami, head of the BAPS Hindu Mandir Abu Dhabi and delegation of the BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha, at Gudaibiya Palace in Manama.
“We are profoundly grateful to the Crown Prince and Prime Minister of Bahrain and to the Prime Minister of India for this historic gift of land, which represents the enriching of warm relations and an exchange of ideas between Bahrain and India which spans millennia.
For BAPS, it is the culmination of a precious moment in 1997 when the late Emir Sheikh Isa bin Salman Al Khalifa received His Holiness Pramukh Swami Maharaj at the Royal Palace in Bahrain.
In their conversation, Sheikh Isa lovingly and instantaneously told Pramukh Swami Maharaj: ‘Make Bahrain your home’.
”“It was a sentiment that was echoed by HRH the Crown Prince and Prime Minister in 2017 when he visited our Diwali gathering.
Upon seeing the picture of His Holiness Pramukh Swami Maharaj and the late Emir Shaikh Isa bin Salman Al Khalifa, he told me: ‘Our love extends to three generations.
We will honour the words and sentiments of our grandfather’.
The building of this BAPS Swaminarayan Temple marks a seminal and historic moment for Hinduism, for relations between India and Bahrain, and for international harmony as a whole,” Swami added.
