On the 14th day after Shree Ramanand Swami’s departure from the material world, Shree Sahajanand Swami called a vast assembly of Shree Ramanand Swami’s followers. Shree Sahajanand Swami said, "There are many names for deities, including Narayan, Surya-narayan, Vairat-narayan, Laxmi-narayan, Nar-narayan, Vasudev-narayan, etc. I am the Master (Swami) of all these deities (Narayans). Therefore my name is 'Swaminarayan'. Dear disciples, my name is Swaminarayan. This is my supreme name. You must all recite this name. Those who chant this name will experience divine ecstasy."
