Acharya Swamishree Maharaj has led the Karan Satsang since being chosen by Jeevanpran Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa as His heir, and Acharya of Shree Swaminarayan Gadi, in 1979. He has flourished the Satsang in astonishing and miraculous ways, and has travelled tirelessly all over the world to spread the supreme philosophy of Lord Shree Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa. But even before He was initiated as a Sant by Jeevanpran Swamibapa, Hirjibhai – as Acharya Swamishree was previously known – showed amazing prowess and has had numerous divine episodes both in His childhood and early years, as well as during His time as a Sant. This first volume of Acharya Swamishree Maharaj’s biography, published on His 75th manifestation day on 28th May 2017, describes the significant and memorable episodes in His remarkable life, up to the time of Jeevanpran Swamibapa’s departure from this mortal world. Further accounts of His life and achievements thereafter will continue to be published on various occasions in future.
