Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa has explained the greatness and importance of Shree Sadguru din, where one has to discover the greatness of Lord Shree Swaminarayan, meditation and examine their selves on how much love they have for the Lord in comparison to others.

The main aim of Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa is to strengthen the souls that take the Lord’s patronage. Our real parent is Lord Swaminarayan. Our Motherly Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa has only one aim, which is to maintain our inclination towards the Lord

For one to be able to experience such divine happiness of the Lord’s Murti one has to find a solution to get engrossed in Him. A persons mind keeps on running behind various objects therefore is failing to attain a peace of mind despite many efforts. To engross the mind towards the Lord is the real pleasure; to achieve this one has to divert and stabilize their mind towards the Lord.

Lord Shree Swaminarayan says that when all of one’s inclinations become focused even after sentiments of enmity he becomes capable of leading to salvation.

The Lord says that there are four means of focusing one’s inclination constantly on the Murti of God i.e.

1. The nature of the chitt is to get attached to wherever one affixes it

2. Extreme bravery where if thoughts other than God arise, he eliminates those thoughts and maintain a constant inclination on the God's Murti.

3. Immense Fear about the cycle of birth and death and the hell of enduring the 8.4 million species of life will lead to the mind constantly getting attached to the Murti of God.

4. A person who possesses Asceticism (Vairagya), through the knowledge of sankhya scriptures, believes that all other objects are unreal and meditates on God within his soul and attains a constant contemplation about Him.

Without the Lord’s mercy one cannot affix their inclination towards the Lord For one to get engrossed in the Murti of the Lord they have to constantly contemplate about the Murti of God even whilst performing any routine activities. To become dearest to the Lord one has to accept and act, as God likes. In life keep a habit of avoiding obscenity and keep your vision towards the Lord.

Eternal salvation (Atyaantik kalyan) is only at the patronage of Shree Swaminarayan Gadi. Living in this world one must maintain patience of the minds inclination.
