The Swaminarayan Sampraday was established by Bhagwan Shree Swaminarayan in early 18th Century. Founded on the pillars of practical spirituality, it reaches out far and wide to clear the confusions and questions that crowd the moral, social and material world of today.
Its strength lies in the purity of its nature and purpose. The Sect strives to better the world by consolidating character in societies, families and individuals. This is done not just by mottos and slogans but by mass motivation and individual attention, through elevating projects for all, irrespective of class, creed, color and country.
The Sect’s global network comprises of Mandirs, Children’s forums, Youth forums, Women’s forum and character-building centers are perennial sources of moral, social, cultural and spiritual activities.
Such moral purity and spiritual surety add a deeper brilliance to all the hundreds of social services performed for Better Life through its 6 basic organs, namely Deity, Mandir, Aacharya, Scripture, Saint and Disciple.
The hallmark of the Swaminarayan devotee is that he or she devoutly begins the day with puja and meditation, works or studies honestly and donates regular hours in serving others.
No Stealing, No Adultery, No Alcohol, No Meat, No Impurity of body and mind – these are the five principal vows.
Such moral purity and spiritual surety add a deeper brilliance to all the hundreds of social services performed for Better Life.
