Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa has given us an understanding of the fact that Lord Shree Swaminarayan is unparalleled. He says that the Lord and Jeevanpran Shree Abjibapa went around towns and villages, reason being, to bless disciples and fulfill their wishes.

Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa says that, one should contemplate on the Lord’s Murti daily, with an understanding that the Murti in Akshardham is the one here.

The Lord will joyfully converse with affection to such a disciple if he ritually prays to the Lord with such an understanding. One has to get engrossed in the Lord’s Murti whilst offering adoration/ veneration to the Lord.

To be able to love the Lord in new unique ways, one needs to maintain pure Antah-Karana (inner psychic functions). It is said to have truly associated with the Lord if one becomes absolutely engrossed in His Murti. A disciple has no true affection for the Lord if he starts disputing and doubting the words and teachings of the Lord. The Antah-Karana of such a disciple are said to be impure.

Shree Nishkulanand Swami says that a true lover’s heart is so pure and full of love and affection. Such a disciple will never say no to any orders or commands from the Lord and has no sort of deceit or guile in his heart. The Lord resides in disciples whose Antah-Karans are pure.

The Lord is pleased through a disciples love for Him. Performing and offering services to the Lord through Love is true servitude. One should not be envious of other disciples offering services to the Lord. Any services a disciple offers through his mind, body, soul and wealth should be in aim of pleasing and gratifying the Lord but not in aim for any other reward/gain.
