The Vachanamrut contains the sublime philosophy of supreme Lord Shree Swaminarayan. All His discourses from 1819 to 1829 CE have been collated by His five most prominent scholarly Sants in this superlative scripture. It contains the precise word of the Lord, just as He spoke them. 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 1
Shreejimaharaj says that if one keeps the inclination of his mind constantly towards God, he can visualise the abodes such as Golok, and also Jeev, Ishwar, Maya and Brahm, if he so wishes. Anything that creates an obstacle whilst meditating on God is Maya. A disciple of the Lord attains a Brahm-may form after leaving his physical body. It is stated that a person who demerits someone for commenting on a fault in him, cannot have affection for the Satsang and he becomes a sinful person. That sin can be destroyed by the benevolence of a sant and therefore a sant is called a holy place of pilgrimage (tirth).
