Acharya Swamiji Maharaj prays to Lord Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa and Vedratna Acharya Shree Swamishree Maharaj to bless all disciples with the courage, strength and divine intellect to come together in unity and take part in services during devotional religious festivities to please the Lord.

Vedratna Acharya Shree Swamishree Maharaj, for more than 4 decades, has showered upon 
disciples of Shree Swaminarayan Gadi, His immense Kindness and benevolence by dedicating His 
entire life to instilling devotion unto His disciples. In requital to His benevolence, we as His 
disciples have to now act as per His will and as per His commands.

Alertness while acting as per the Lord’s wish and commands, will not only make one advance in the 
Material/earthly sector but also in the spiritual sector. Acting as per the Lord’s commands is always 
beneficial to one’s soul.

Lord Shree Swaminarayan mentions in the Vachanamrut that He has considered us to be His and if 
He does not persist in keeping us obedient we will end up behaving in some kind of inappropriate 
manner and He will not be able to endure seeing this behaviour kind of conduct. For this reason, He 
does not want to see any slight imperfection to remain in us as His disciples and He is determined to 
not allow any kind of inappropriate passions or unacceptable temperaments to remain in our hearts 
and, to free us from the association with the attributes of Maya and any kind of material anxieties, 
and to ensure that we realise ourselves to be independent i.e. souls, and perform devotion to God 
accordingly. No kind of affection should exist for any kind of object; it must exist only for Him. 
The Lord therefore advices us to remain extremely vigilant, because any slight recklessness will 
lead one to fall from the Satsang. We must therefore remain under the patronage of Shree 
Swaminarayan Gadi acting as per the commands of the Lord.

The Lord and His Muktas give us Guidance through their discourses and its our work to imbibe in 
their discourses and act as per their guidance. One should constantly have self realisation to identify 
their weaknesses and improve themselves accordingly by understanding the Glory of the Lord and 
taking Him as the Doer. The Lord supports one who does this and such a person is a true 
Mumukshu. 

The Ones with association with the attributes of Maya and any kind of material anxieties have no 
entry to Akshardham. The association and desires for supremacy is much more binding to this world 
than worldly Maayik desires.

Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa, during the physical embodiment of Shree Swaminarayan Gadi, 
blessed us with His divine blessings stating that, whosoever becomes a devotee of Shree 
Swaminarayan Gadi and resorts to Shree Swaminarayan Gadi will attain eternal salvation 
(aatyantik-moksh). He also mentioned that He will not let any devotee’s life go empty, He will 
purify every devotee and forgive their sins and take them to Akshardham, if not through Yog then 
through rog (illness), but all devotees of Shree Swaminarayan Gadi must attain eternal salvation.
Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa says that a in this life a devotee should engross themselves in the 
darshan, kirtan-bhakti of Lord Shree Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa, they should take every 
opportunity to perform devotion to the Lord. This is the best mode to attain eternal peace. One who 
doesn’t take this opportunity to Please the Lord is miserable.

HDH Acharya Shree Jitendriyapriyadasji swami explained that abiding by the wishes and 
commands of the Lord is always beneficial to one’s life
