Uttarayan is a day of finding happiness with the sky. The Lord showers His love upon us and attracts us towards Him. A disciple who has absolute Love for the Lord tries to please Him in various ways.

We have to surrender our lives at the Lotus feet of the Lord. To become the Lord’s, the first thing a disciple has to do is let go of anger completely. It is said that to grow and succeed in one’s life one must let go of their anger. One should never get angry in the morning, at bedtime, whilst dining and also whilst performing devotion. One can easily fall off the road to eternal salvation just due to anger. We must ensure never to have anger whilst in satsang.

We have found a supernatural solicitude with the Lord. He has given His disciples abundant opportunities to merge with His Murti and therefore they need to act as per His will. This is the true income in one’s life.

Lord Shree Swaminarayan says that a disciple who has no deficit in obeying the His commands and the Panch-Vartamans, and does not get perplexed whilst acting as per the Lord’s will is said to be a true disciple of the Lord.

A disciple, who acts as per the Lord’s will, abandons whatsoever interrupts him whilst offering devotion and abandons his bad nature is known as an exceptional disciple of the Lord.

The Lord’s only aim is to give happiness and contentment of His Murti to His disciples.
