Acharya Swamishree Maharaj's Ashirwad - 28th Dec 2016

Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa says we have to have trust in the glory of Lord Shree Swaminarayan, Jeevanpran Shree AbjiBapa and the entire universal genealogy (Vanshavali) of Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Sansthan. And a person with such trust attains the bliss of God’s Murti. All we have to do to gain the Lord’s happiness is to show affection towards Him and his Sants.
The reason as to why a person with true determination for God has no affection for the Lord and His Discourses is because he does not understand how great God actually is. Therefore, to develop an unfaltering affection for the Lord, His Sants and for the Lord’s Discourses; he has to have a complete understanding of the Lord’s greatness.
Just like a fish lives in water, we have to develop affection for God and reside in His Murti, and eliminate all inclinations from the world and divert them to the Lord’s Murti. Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa says that without understanding the glory of Jeevanpran Shree AbjiBapa we cannot understand the glory of Lord Shree Swaminarayan and vice versa.

Whilst doing Satsang, we have to offer devotion and awaken the need for God, His love and His happiness; to attain this we have to act as per the Lord’s commands at all times. The Lord has always considered us His and for us to maintain this we have to live our life under the shelter of Shree Swaminarayan Gadi with an aim to attain the Bliss of God’s Murti.
