Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa gave diksha to Shree Swasiddhcharandasji Swami on Samvat 2020 Bhadarva Sud 15 (21 September 1964). He was 22 years of age at the time.

Gurudev Swamibapa entrusted Shree Swasiddhcharandasji Swami with managing the Kothar in Maninagar Mandir, and during the main festivals that were organised by the Sansthan. He served Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Sansthan with true conviction and faith. Since 1965, he diligently looked after the Mandir in Bhuj as the Mahant. This sewa of the Faith continued till his last days. Accordingly, he served as the Mahant of Bhuj Mandir for 57 years.

He served the Faith with dedication and had respect, humility and admiration for all the Sants and disciples of Shree Swaminarayan Gadi. Through his utmost humbleness and enthusiam to serve, performing even the most menial of deeds, Sadguru Shree Swasiddhcharandasji Swami pleased Lord Shree Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa, Ved Ratna Acharya Swamishree Maharaj and Acharya Swamiji Maharaj immensely.

In 1972, Gurudev Swamibapa bestowed the Chakro - Sadguru status to Shree Swasiddhcharandasji Swami. In 1991, Ved Ratna Acharya Swamishree Maharaj bestowed the Gadi Takiya - Sadguru status to him. Furthermore, in 2014, Ved Ratna Acharya Swamishree Maharaj appointed him as a trustee of our main Trust.

We all pray that the merciful Lord bestow greater and greater, divine bliss of the Murti to Sadguru Shree Swasiddhcharandasji Swami.
