Jeevan Charitra (life story) of our beloved  Jeevanpran Swamibapa. Swaminarayan Bhagwan sends his divine Sankalp Swaroop Jeevanpran Swamibapa to manifest as son of Muljibhai and Ichchhaba in AD 1907. Born as Purushottambhai, Swamibapa shows kin interest in satsang gyan, seva, bhakti and katha, since very early childhood. On spiritual calling of Sadguru Shree Ishwarcharandasji Swami, Swamibapa visits him in Saraspur and three days later gets initiated as Sant. As divine guardian of Bapashree's principles and disciples, Swamibapa establishes true understanding of sarvopari upasna and supremacy of Karan Satsang. Bravely facing all adversities, physical threats and challenges, Swamibapa establishes Sarvopari Maninagar Kendra, an epicenter of Karan Satsang and Sarvopari Upasana of Swaminarayan Bhagvan. Swamibapa leads by example and gives back thousand folds to society by establishing schools, colleges, hostels, hospitals and other social service centers. He brings hundreds of thousands of downtrodden, addicted and superstitious masses and adivasis to path of ultimate salvation. He leads the light of Swaminarayan Sampraday beyond India, to Africa, Europe and Americas. Swamibapa performs extended Dhyan a number of times. In his longest continuous Dhyan  61 days. Swaminarayan Bhagwan ordaines him to physical embodiement of His divine throne and helm of Satsang – Shree Swaminarayan Gadi.  His divine  Swamibapa establishes number of temples and even higher number of satsang mandals to bring all righteous seekers to the path of eternal salvation.
