Truth about Upasana
Lord Swaminarayan set at rest
all controversies as regards Brahman and Parabrahman explaining "Brahman
transcends Maya and Parabrahman transcends Brahman."
Taking a cue from this, Pragji Bhakta drove home the principle that
Parabrahman had descended on earth in the form of Lord Swaminarayan
and that Brahman too had descended with Him, in the form of Gunatitanand
To spread this pure Upasana of Akshar and Purushottam, Shastriji Maharaj
who succeeded Pragji Bhakta, worked with tremendous determination and
zeal. Despite facing severe opposition and persecution he harbored no
malice towards those who opposed him.
He was a matchless scholar. He established the principle of Akshar and
Purushottam, as authorized by Lord Swaminarayan, and built five mandirs,
installing the murtis of Akshar and Purushottam.
