This edition is augmented with the Rahasyarth Pradeepika Tika - the commentary that elucidates the true connotations of the Vachanamrut, prepared by Jeevanpran Shree Abji Bapashree.

Gadhada First Section
Vachanamrut 48
Shreejimaharaj validates His own painted Murti. He commands all to offer adoration to these Murtis, early each morning. He directs the disciples to pray to these painted Murtis for protection from the four types of immoral associations and from enemies such as lust. He states that the painted Murtis are in fact Shreejimaharaj Himself, and therefore they must never be allowed to remain without being worshiped. Shreejimaharaj has also said that whilst one remains adherent to the five vartmans and offer adoration to this Murti. He resides within that Murti.
