Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa says that to have an interest in the divine discourses of Lord Shree Swaminarayan and His Muktas is easy to act/perform, but a soul stagnates when it cones to contemplation of the Lord’s Murti.
Jeevanpran Shree Abjibapashree says that one should never stop contemplating on the Lord’s Murti. He says that one will never attain the Murti of the Lord without contemplating on the Murti. by not attaining the Murti one becomes the Lord’s culpable.
One does not return to this world ever again if he unites with the Lord with true inner intent and with having an understanding of the greatness of the Murti. To be able to contemplate on the Lord’s Murti, the mind should not be bad, should not get angered and should not be full of desires. One should affiliate and have affection for the Lord and His Muktas.
To be able to please the Lord, one must have the need and affection for the Lord. Once the Lord is pleased upon his disciple, He resides in his heart and a disciple in whose heart the Lord resides never has any ill thoughts or wishes and only has hopes and wishes to please the Lord.
For the soul to be able to be courageous, one should have abundant love and affection for the Lord and His Muktas and live a life of servitude.
