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 41
Shreejimaharaj says that everything up to Mul-maya is perishable, and everything up to Mul-akshar is imperishable. Beyond all these categories, is the eternally murtiman and pratyaksh Lord Purushottam, i.e. Shreejimaharaj. He exists omnisciently, i.e. in His lustrous, anvay form, in differing degrees, depending on the worthiness of each, within all, from Mul-akshar to Brahm, Ishwar, Maya and Jeev. However, He does not assume the forms of Jeev, Maya, Ishwar, Brahm or Akshar. He is above all of these and is unattainable by them.
