Acharya Swamishree Maharaj's Ashirwad - 24th Dec 2016
On this auspicious day of the 215th Shree Swaminarayan Mahamantra Jayanti, Acharya Swamishree mentioned that we are very fortunate to have found Lord Swaminarayan, full of grace and kindness. Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa says, if one intends to attain pure bliss, he has to set his soul free off the worldly competitions/fights and simply have their mind an thoughts inclined towards the Lord at all times. In the Vachanamrut the Lord tells us that maintaining one’s mind uninterruptedly inclined towards God is the most difficult spiritual excursion (Sadhan). And if one manages to get his mind uninterruptedly inclined towards the Lord with continuous remembrance he is set to attain inner peace. With the understanding of the glory of the Mahamantra ‘Swaminarayan’ and with divine disposition, if one continuously remembers the Lord whilst he connects with the Lord, such a person attains endless happiness and bliss.
If one abides by the Lord’s commands, has assurance in the words of the Lord, remains in the satsang and performs religious decree whilst in the satsang with a pure mind; such disciples attains the divine abode of Lord Shree Swaminarayan and becomes the Lord’s good children.
Acharya Swamishree mentioned that our largest fortune/wealth is when our children have no sort of addictions. He also mentioned that, we as disciples of the Lord have to always avoid by, any chance, to annoy Lord Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa.
