For the social betterment and spiritual enrichment of the human society Lord Shri Swaminarayan has established a universally acceptable, comprehensive philosophical system. It’s a path of pure knowledge which elevates our soul and helps us attain oneness with the Supreme Lord. Vachanamrutam and Shikshapatri are two great classics, containing the essence of the ideal philosophy of Shri Swaminarayan. In a simple but lucid and convincing language, Lord Shri Swaminarayan has tried to spread His message through these two great spiritual works. He also inspired His Saints and seers, His liberated householder devotees and scholars to compose plenty of work expressing their own spiritual experiences, to contribute to the understanding of His percepts which are beneficial to the whole of mankind.
Shri Swaminarayan Divine Mission is not a creation of human will or human desire. It is an institution that came into being by Rev. Muktaraj Shri Narayanbhai G. Thakker, under the inspiration of and at the command of Lord Shri Swaminarayan. It is an action put to our faith. This ‘Omni-beneficial’, embracing all faiths, organization has been founded with a view to raising the spiritual level of the seekers and thus help them attain ‘atyantik moksha’ – perfect peace and liberation from the chain of birth and death.
Shri Swaminarayan Divine Mission intends to bring out a series of books that will not only benefit the entire mankind but also enrich the lives of the people by offering them what is best in Indian thoughts and culture.
While forming the ‘Mission’, Pujyashri Narayanbhai had prepared a master plan containing lofty goals and ideal aims that would direct and govern its activities. He had taken care of every detail and envisaged every problem that could hamper the smooth functioning of the Mission. With total dedication to the cause of the spiritual development of the society in the light of Lord Shri Swaminarayan’s teaching, he swung into action. Character building, attainment of spiritual salvation through selfless service of mankind were the objectives to be achieved by the Mission.
