By simply reciting “Swaminarayan” name, one becomes free off all sins and dwells in the Brahm-mahol. One should keep the strength of God’s worship. Such a disciple believes that by reciting the “Swaminarayan” name during his last moments, all his sins will be washed away.
Lord Swaminarayan himself has explained the greatness of His name through the kirtan ; “ Je Swaminarayan naam leshe, tena badha patak bari deshe…” Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa says that however big or small the problems, they all disappear by simply having an uninterrupted concentration whilst chanting the “Swaminarayan” name. He also says that by the chanting of the “Swaminarayan” name the three types of taaps (problems/sufferings) i.e. mental suffering, physical suffering and externally-inflicted problems/suffering; also disappear. To achieve a certain thing in one’s life, he/she must have an uninterrupted concentration towards it.
To attain the divine lustrous Murti of the Lord, whilst chanting/reciting the Lord’s name, his mind must concentrate towards attaining the Murti. This is when one is able to perform dhyan (mediation). This divine Murti of the Lord is full of ecstasy and to visualize and merge in this Murti one has to continuously chant the maha mantra “Swaminarayan”. If one chants whilst having an understanding of the Murti then they become free from the cycle of births and deaths. To heal from this illness of the cycle of birth and death one must continuously chant Lord Swaminarayan's name. By doing this all sorrows are wiped off.
True remembrance of the Lord leads to building a bond of Love with the Lord. Whilst in religion one should keep in mind whether the relationship with the Lord and Swaminarayan Gadi is that of a beggar or of love. We should never be selfish. The Lord is our protector. One becomes internally holy if he builds a relationship of Love with the Lord, and such a person is able to cross though the ocean of worldly desires.
The Lord is always there for a disciple who performs devotion with chasteness. A disciple with a unique bonding/relationship with the Lord via devotion with extreme love for Him sees nothing apart from the Lord’s Murti and Shree Swaminarayan Gadi. One becomes worth/eligible by continuous remembrance of the Lord’s Murti. This is only possible with the Lord’s grace upon us.
