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 40
Shreejimaharaj states that someone who has become affectionately united with His Murti after having acquired the same form as His lustrous Akshardham, is someone who has achieved a nirvikalp trance, Someone  who has acquired the status within His Muti, i.e. someone who is able to visualise His Murti, but still has volitions about wanting to go to Badrik-ashram or Shwet-dweep, and to be like one of their Muktas, has a savikalp trance. Shreejimaharaj defines devotion as worshiping Him in the nine different ways. Upasana is defined as understanding God to be eternally sakar and having a master-servant relationship with Him.
