Searching Question Fulfilling Answer
Each person struggles through

live. For some the trials are

overpowering, for others a bored

status quo prevails,and

for a minority mountains are

pounded to dust in

the search for meaning and joy.

Within the invisible depths of

each soul there is a yearning.

A need to know ‘Why?’.

‘Why do we live?’,

‘Why do we experience problems?’,

‘Why are we travellers on the

journey of life?’.

In the search for answers to

their uncertainties many turn to

the God-realised Saint.
    Travellers On The Journey Of Life
    Knights Of The Faith...

For thousands of years in Indian culture there has been the tradition of surrendering one’s self to the guru. Even in today’s modern society the tradition still lives. One can see young graduates renouncing the world to became sadhus for a place at Swamishri’s feet. To them he is everything. Through his teachings and inspirations they become the next generation of knights, albeit gentle, of the faith, defending and sustaining the ancient culture and spirituallity of India against the evils of today’s materialistic society.

Jnaneshwar Swami : In your speeches and letters you always stress upon doing bhajan. What is bhajan?

Swamishri : To chant Swaminarayan, Swaminarayan... Bhajan is remembering God. Yogiji Maharaj used to say ‘do bhajan’. In all activities we face obstacles. By doing bhajan, we can overcome them. By doing bhajan our jiva becomes tranquil. Other people also benefit more, if we say Swaminarayan rather than any other words. Maharaj has said, ‘The harmony that one gets by doing bhajan cannot be found anywhere else in the entire universe.’ If one does bhajan realising its mahima, then he will become elated.
To do bhajan is the dharma of a renunciate. To live in a group, to preach, to perform different activities is also a type of bhajan. By doing this type of bhajan we will automatically be able to remember God in all activities. Bhajan helps us fight against inner flaws as well as our external ones. Basically to follow agna is bhajan.
