The reasons for getting together daily is to perform religion, offer devotion to the Lord and to sing His praises. It is through affiliation with His Sants that the darkness of ignorance gets destroyed. Religion brings one easily much more closer and atttached to the Lord compared to chanting, persevering, fasting and meditation. If one does not understand religion well, he follows it according to his desires, which In turn is not beneficial. The only way to understand religion is through the Lord and His Muktas.

Through pure religion one can get rid off his lust, anger and greed. One should think about how restless he is to attain the worldly pleasures and see if he is likewise as restless to attain the Lord’s pleasure.

One is said to have performed religion through reciting, learning and reminiscing the scriptures of our Karan Satsang. The Lord manifested on Earth to ensure we don’t get stuck into worldly desires. The pleasures of this world are tiring but the pleasure of the Lord’s Murti will never subside and shall never tire a person.

By affiliating with the Lord, performing religion and offering devotion through the mind, actions and his speech while under the patronage of Shree Swaminarayan Gadi; leads one to attaining the pleasures of merging within the Lord's Murti.
