Day 5 Morning - Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Suvarna Mahotsav
Day 5 Highlight - Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Suvarna Mahotsav

His Divine Holiness Acharya Swamiji Maharaj bestowed His divine Ashirwad on everyone. He spoke extensively about the knowledge Jeevanpran Bapashree gave us, which many at the time and today, still deny - that the Lord is today ‘pragat and pratyaksha’. Bapa evidenced several scriptures that validate this philosophy if interpreted correctly, and explained just how fortunate we are to have attained Bapashree, and therefore are able to understand and benefit from this knowledge.

Acharya Swamiji Maharaj explained that Swamibapa's kirtans contained in the Shree Harignanamrut Kavya scripture are based on Swamibapa's own experiences of the Lord’s Murti. He referred to the kirtan 'Aje to Shreeji pragat bhagwan'. Whoever, whenever and wherever one sings this kirtan, the Lord is present.

Referring to the same kirtan, Acharya Swamiji Maharaj continued to elucidate the difference between Anadi Mukta, Ekantik Mukta and Param Ekantik Mukta.

Anandi Mukta reside within the Murti of Lord Shree Swaminarayan in His Akshardham whilst Param Ekantik Mukta dwell in the vicinity of the Lord.

Ekantik Muktas have an obstacle to overcome and that is their material body before they are able to become one with the Lord.

Bapa went on to reiterate the importance of carrying out with diligence our ‘niyams’ - daily religious commitments we had made such as dhyan, reading, etc - even when our minds do not feel up to it.

A number of eminent guests came for darshan during this Mahotsav today, including:

Shri Pradip Parmar, Cabinet Minister of Social Justice and Empowerment in the Gujarat Government; Shree Pradipsinh Jadeja,  BJP's Member of the Legislative Assembly from Vatva; Shri Amit Shah, Former Ahmedabad Mayor and Ahmedabad BJP president; Dr. Rutvij Patel, Co-Spokesperson of BJP Gujarat; Shri Mahesh Kaswala, Gujarat State Secretary BJP; Dr Prashant Korat, President Bharatiya Janta Yuva Morcha (BJYM), Gujarat Pradesh.
