Scriptural Studies

In 1893 Swami Yagnapurushdas began his higher studies in Sanskrit and scriptures in Vadodara. The tutor, Shastri Rangacharya, was a learned scholar of the Madhwa school. He was impressed by the Swami's memory and grasping power.
During this academic period, Swami Yagnapurushdas explained the Navya Vishishthadvaita philosophy of Lord Swaminarayan to Rangacharya. He also preached that Parabrahman and Brahman have a divine form (divya sakar) and Pragji Bhakta is the manifest form of Brahman. In the same year, Swami Yagnapurushdas took his guru, Rangacharya, for the murti-pratishtha ceremony at Laxmivadi in Gadhada.
