It is only through the Lord himself or His Satpurush who can explain the Lord’s greatness. Disciples having an absolute understanding of His greatness have no credence anywhere else apart from Lord Shree Swaminarayan, and such disciples are capable of imbibing the divine nectar of the Lord at the patronage of Shree Swaminarayan Gadi. One who takes this nectar becomes immortal (one does not come back in this cycle of birth and death).

For one to attain the bliss of the Murti and to inscribe his name on the Lord’s Mala beads (stringed beads), he has to understand the byword that the Lord, His Satpurush and the divine Shree Swaminarayan Gadi are unparalleled.

Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa explains the meaning of when the Lord mala by combining two beads at a time, giving us an understanding that the Lord does not leave His disciple alone, He is always attached to His disciples and always remembers them.

The Lord shows us contiguity/ attachment. One should always keep an existence of the Lord whilst performing activities to please Him.

In Vachanamrut, the Lord states that singing devotional songs with all instruments but not having continuous remembrance of the Lord while singing is the same as not singing at all.

One should not have to want to please the Lord in a particular way; he should rather acknowledge the Strength of the Lord in every activity. The Lord is pleased upon a disciple who acknowledges His strength. Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa says that one should perform activities whilst having a continuous remembrance of the Lord. One attains the Lord’s Murti through His grace and not through intellect or means of pleasing the Lord.

The Lord says the unsullied disciples are able to attain the divine bliss of the Lord’s Murti. One is said to become egoistic is he cannot behave in an unsullied manner whilst performing actions to please the Lord. Therefore as disciples we should remain under the patronage of Shree Swaminarayan Gadi and always prosper.
