Lord Shree Swaminarayan likes devotion. Affection for the Lord is one such feeling that brings about growth in one’s life.
We have to pray to the Lord to give us the strength and devotion to be able to forget all worldly desires and only love Him.
A true disciple is one who sees divinity in even the human conduct of the Lord. Such devotion is the divine absolute state. With this come patience, trust, tolerance and then complete contentment. Such a disciple is able to control his senses and once he achieves control of his senses, his life becomes engrossed in devotion to the Lord and humility becomes a part of him. By performing such servitude devotion, the Lord gets extremely happy on such a disciple.
The Lord protects those who become His. Whilst in religion we have to perform such true devotion for the Lord.
