The Swaminarayan Bhagwan temples (affiliated with the “Vadtal Desh”) at Kundaldham and Karelibaug, Baroda, were built by the sole inspiration of honorable saint P.P. Sadguru Shree Gyanjivandasji Swami (Kundaldham). Swaminarayan Bhagwan is the supreme God, who graciously visited this Earth about 230 years ago (1781 CE – 1830 CE). Earth was overwhelmed by evil and discrimination. Consequently, the spiritual nourishment of haribhakto had seized. To restore proper conduct, devotion, and spirituality, Swaminarayan Bhagwan came to this Earth. Most importantly though, He incarnated for the benefit and sheer joy of His haribhakto. He is divine and has a definite shape. Swamiji has given discourses on myriad scriptures of the Swaminarayan Sampraday like Satsangijivan, Bhakt Chintamani, Vasudev Mahatmya, Yamdand etc. Most recently, Swamiji has been the orator-in-chief of Sagar Katha, where he gives discourses on the epic scripture Shree Haricharitramrut Sagar written by P.P. Sadguru Shree Aadharanand Swami. This scripture is Hindi language’s most grandeur scripture and from a religious point of view, this scripture is unique considering its synonymity with the ‘Ved’ voice. Sagar Katha today, has become an indispensable part of the lives of numerous people.
