The B.A.P.S Swaminarayan Research Institute, USA, was inaugurated on Saturday, June 18, 2022, in Robbinsville, New Jersey, at the Swaminarayan Akshardham - North America.

Hundreds of swamis and devotees assembled for a "Satsang Diksha Homatmak Path." This one-of-a-kind yagna entailed making offerings to a holy fire while reciting verses from the Satsang Diksha. The yagna was held to pray for world peace as well as an auspicious start for the research institute. Children chanted Sanskrit verses and sang Vedic peace prayers. Thousands of people watched the historic ceremony live and in-person across North America and across the world.
