About the Book

Hari dekhi manohar murat, bisare dhan-tan-dham;

Tal, mrudang bajavat gavat, rizat purankam.

Saints of Swaminarayan holy order not only gave discourses but also created hymns of the daily routine of Lord Swaminarayan and praised his glory in the form of Kirtanas. They were best of the best to monitor Lord's activities minutely. As a result they were able to please Lord. Lord Swaminarayan, himself, made elderly saints like Shri Muktanand Swami, Shri Brahmanand Swami, Shri Premanand Swami, Shri Nishkulanand Swami, Shri Devanand Swami, Shri Manjukeshanand Swami, Shri Bhumanand Swami, Shri Dayanand Swami sing such kirtanas.

When such kirtanans were being sung by saints with orchestra at the starting, in the middle or at the end of a religious meeting, he used to listen to it aptly, sometimes he himself would sing along with them clapping or snapping of fingers. Not only this but many a times he would absorb in it with rapt attention standing behind the saint who was singing alone at midnight, and that was for the whole night.

Lord Swaminarayan has described the fellows who attach themselves to the idol of Lord from inside or outside, as conscientious fellows. Let us be such a conscientious fellow and fill our lives with such holiness.

About the Author

Lord Shree Swaminarayan was born in a Samvedi Brahmin family on 9" day of bright half of the month Chaitra of Vikram Samvat 1837 i.e. on 3" April, 1781, in a small village called Chhapaiya near Ayodhya, U.P, India. His father’s name was Dharmadev and his mother’s name was Bhaktimata. In the tender age of 7 years only, he learned all the religious scriptures including Vedas from his father and became victorious in a conference of scholars held in Kashi. After serving his parents, at the age of 11 only, he left village Chhapaiya and proceed alone towards the forests in the north.

Lord Shri Swaminarayan came to Gujarat at the age of 18 and extended his work of spreading true religion. He propagated Uddhav (Swaminarayan) doctrine popularly known as Vishishtadvait.

At age 21, he established Swaminarayan culture, with the blessings of his Guru Sadguru Ramanand Swami. He initiated more than 1500 saints to spread the pious Sampraday (Holy Sect). To achieve ultimate redemption he taught the Swaminarayan mahamantra.

To preserve the purity in the religion, he devised five basic Codes of Conducts for Haribhakt (Devotee) like not to steal, not to eat meat, not to drink, not to commit adultery, not to follow impurity and for Tyagi (Saints) like, Nishkam (Lust-less), Nirlobh (Greed-less), Nissenh (Attachment-less), Nisswad (Taste-less) and Nirman (Ego-less).

He established beautiful temples at Ahmedabad, Bhuj, Vadtal, Dholera, Junagadh, Gadhpur for Upasana - worshipping God in all His greatness & glory and Bhakti -Devotion. With all these, he gave a small but huge Code of Conducts with only 212 verses, The Shikshapatri. And the nectar of spiritual discourses performed by Bhagwan Swaminarayan, The Vachnamrutam.

Thus, in a short span of 49 years He revived Hinduism, glorified spiritual values and founded the Swaminarayan Faith and left for His Divine Abode, Akshardham.
