Two Hundred Years ago, Lord Swaminarayan incarnated himself on this earth. Many people were attracted by the holy vision of His Murti. There were arround five hundred ascetic saints; life time forsakers of money and woman. some saints among them were Erudites, Yogis, Writers, Poets, Musicians and skilled in sculpture.
The erudites wrote commentary on scriptures like. ‘Upanishad', 'Bhagawat Gita' etc. and wrote new scriptures. The Yogis were highly skilled in teaching 'Ashtanga Yoga.’ The writers prepared volumes like 'Vachanamrutam’ arranging the daily notes of religious talks with Lord Swaminarayan. The saints skilled in sculpture prepared huge temples with attractive and magnificent summits. The poet saints composed Kirtans- Poems; seeing the Murti of Lord Swaminarayan exactly representing the vivid look. Some composed Kirtans of religious festivals and Kirtans preaching about the importance of human life in simple and easily understandable language.
The musician saints used to sing those Kirtans before Lord Shri Swaminarayan with so much love and affection filling the hearts of listeners with divine pleasure.
Out of thousands of Kirtans and poems, some useful are given in this book, which are useful to the pupils studying in English Medium at Shri Swaminarayan Gurukul Hyderabad. It is hoped that besides the students of Gurukul, this book will be useful to other curious devotees also.
These Kirtans are produced in English script by the former student of Gurukul Rajkot, Shri Nilesh Jogal and proof reading has been done by former student Movalia Aashish with the instruction of Purani Swami Devprasaddasji.
With a prayer that may the pleasure of Lord Swaminarayan be descend on them.
