Two Hundred Years ago, Lord Swaminarayan incarnated
himself on this earth. Many people were attracted by the holy
vision of His Murti. There were arround five hundred ascetic
saints; life time forsakers of money and woman. some saints
among them were Erudites, Yogis, Writers, Poets, Musicians
and skilled in sculpture.
The erudites wrote commentary on scriptures like.
‘Upanishad', 'Bhagawat Gita' etc. and wrote new scriptures.
The Yogis were highly skilled in teaching 'Ashtanga Yoga.’ The
writers prepared volumes like 'Vachanamrutam’ arranging the
daily notes of religious talks with Lord Swaminarayan. The
saints skilled in sculpture prepared huge temples with attractive
and magnificent summits. The poet saints composed Kirtans-
Poems; seeing the Murti of Lord Swaminarayan exactly
representing the vivid look. Some composed Kirtans of religious
festivals and Kirtans preaching about the importance of human
life in simple and easily understandable language.
The musician saints used to sing those Kirtans before Lord
Shri Swaminarayan with so much love and affection filling the
hearts of listeners with divine pleasure.
Out of thousands of Kirtans and poems, some useful are
given in this book, which are useful to the pupils studying in
English Medium at Shri Swaminarayan Gurukul Hyderabad. It
is hoped that besides the students of Gurukul, this book will
be useful to other curious devotees also.
These Kirtans are produced in English script by the former
student of Gurukul Rajkot, Shri Nilesh Jogal and proof reading
has been done by former student Movalia Aashish with the
instruction of Purani Swami Devprasaddasji.
With a prayer that may the pleasure of Lord Swaminarayan
be descend on them.
