Sadguru Shree Gopalanand Swami was the first Successor of Lord Shree Swaminarayan's Gadi. He was entrusted the helms of the Satsang by Lord Swaminarayan Himself. When in Samvat 1886 Lord Swaminarayan willed to cease giving darshan in His present body, He commanded everyone to obey Sadguru Shree Gopalanand Swamibapa. Lord Swaminarayan made Shree Gopalbapa the successor of His own Gadi, Shree Swaminarayan Gadi and established Shree Gopalbapa as the head of both deshs.
