An extract from the divine scripture, Shree Swaminarayan Gadi, Chapter 6 - Education.

A convention of scholars was held in Kashi to which Dharmadev had been invited. The infant Lord Shree Ghanshyam accompanied Dharmadev to the debate. During the assembly, Lord Shree Ghanshyam spoke in fluent Sanskrut and eloquently presented a lecture about the Vishishtadwait philosophy. He explained that God has a definite form. He affirmed the philosophy founded by Ramanujacharya and then developed this philosophy one step further. He explained, “There are two distinct and identical entities - the Lord and His Mukta. When they merge, it appears as if only Lord exists. However, in reality, they are distinct. Lord always remains the master, whilst the Mukta remains the devotee.”

Overwhelmed by hearing such an eloquent oration from the child Lord Shree Ghanshyam, the scholars praised Him. They bowed down to Him in respect, and presented Him with garlands of flowers.

During the Kashi convention, Lord Shree Swaminarayan advocated the Vishishtadwait philosophy. Even before such great scholars, and at a very young age, Lord Shree Swaminarayan revealed this great prowess in philosophy. He established His true philosophy on the Earth. In this manner, He fulfilled another of His motives for manifesting upon the Earth.
