Vachnamrut Jayanti Nairobi

The Vachanamrut scripture is the scripture of classical Hinduism, containing nectar (Amrut), in the form of divine words (Vachan) from the lotus mouth of Lord Shree Swaminarayan; and for that reason, the scripture is called ‘Vachan-Amrut’.

Vachnamrut Granth is the most eminent scripture in Swaminarayan sect. Vachnamrut Granth is the Ocean of Mercy of Supreme Lord Shree Swaminarayan. It is a guidebook showing simple but precise solution to complex problems. This Sacred Scripture is the most ideal for the eternal salvation of all creatures. While all other main religious scriptures were published years after passing away of respective religious heads, Vachnamrut Granth was published in presence of Lord Shree Swaminarayan Himself.

27th November 2022 marked the 203rd Anniversary of this Holy Scripture. The first Vachnamrut was recited by Lord Shree Swaminarayan exactly 203 years ago in Gadhda, India. Sants and devotees in Nairobi celebrated this day in presence of the Acharya of Shree Swaminarayan Gadi, His Divine Holiness Gnan Mahodadhi Acharya Shree Jitendriyapriyadasji Swamiji Maharaj.
