Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa has explained the greatness and importance of Shree Sadguru din, where one has to discover how much religion one has taken into their soul.

Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa’s aim is to attach and attract those who have taken the Lord’s patronage, towards the LordOne will not be able to become the Lord’s disciple without having the love, knowledge and understanding of His greatness.Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa has taught us to live a divine life in a simple way, which is simply having love for God and having an uninterrupted concentration. By this he is giving us the post of Anadimukta. One will not achieve this state until he does not get rid of worldly desires and attain a steady inclination towards the Lord.

Lord Shree Swaminarayan says that maintaining a steady inclination of the mind towards His Murti is the finest tool of devotion. A disciple who is able to maintain this uninterrupted concentration towards the Lord’s Murti attaints the state of Anadimukta.

We are blessed with such a Mantra, that by reciting it one will get rid of all negative thoughts. One is not able to concentrate during meditation, pooja and religion because he does not have an absolute control of his thoughts. One has to question himself whether he actually cannot control his thoughts or it’s an excuse towards performing devotion and also towards the trust, faith and belief for the Lord.

We will achieve everything if we understand the importance of the Lord and get attached to Him.To burn the sins and live a divine life, we have to take control of our senses  (indriyas and antah-karans) whilst performing religion.

To achieve eternal salvation, one must get rid of the worldly desires by understanding the greatness of the Lord. If someone has both the appreciation of the Lord’s greatness and enthusiasm, he is able to maintain an incessant contemplation about God, and cannot be lured by the sensations. The extent of one’s determination is equivalent to the degree of understanding of His greatness.

To live a divine life one has to humbly understand the greatness and the knowledge even if his wishes are not fulfilled. If we don’t observe the commandments one is said to have fallen from the right path of religion. One has to identify himself with the Lord and have intense love and achieve an incessant contemplation about Him.
