Vachanamrut (Audiobook)

  • Published: Shree Swaminarayan Mandir Maninagar on 04 May 2017

Synopsis

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.


Section/Chapter
Gadhada First Section
Vachanamrut 39
Shreejimaharaj explains that a  Jeevan-mukta  who has attained a savikalp trance is able to visualise Jeev, Ishwar, Maya and Brahm individually and therefore consider them all to be real. A videh-mukta who has attained a nirvikalp visualises Jeev, Maya, Ishwar as being the same form, that of Brahm. Meaning, he does not visualise Jeev, Ishwar or Maya at all. All he visualises is Brahm, i.e. Shreejimaharaj. It is like those who have climbed to the top of Mount Lokalok, and cannot see the trees, human beings, other mountains, etc., on the Earth. All they see is the Earth. Therefore, he [Videh-mukta] considers Jeev, Maya and Ishwar, to be unreal. Someone who has not attained either of these statuses, and proclaims  Jeev, Maya, Ishwar, guru, disciple, Vedas, Puran, and the scriptures as being imaginary due to his interpretation of the scriptures, goes to hell.
