Présentation de l'éditeur

The Vachanamrut of Bhagwan Swaminarayan is the most sacred and foundational scripture of the Swaminarayan Sampraday. It contains the profound wisdom of the Vedas, Upanishads, Brahmasutras, Bhagvad Gita, Bhagvat Purana, Dharma shastras like Yagnavalkya Smruti, Vidurniti, and epics like the Ramayan and Mahabharat (Vachanamrut Gadhadha II-28). Bhagwan Swaminarayan says in Gadhadha II-28, "What is this discourse which I have delivered before you like? Well, I have delivered it having heard and having extracted the essence from the Vedas, the shastras, the Purans and all other words on this earth pertaining to liberation."

The Vachanamrut is the essence of ancient Indian wisdom as told by Bhagwan Swaminarayan and compiled by his five contemporary scholarly-sadhus who were known for their asceticism and scholarship in Sanskrit, besides their devotion to him. In fact every statement of the Master is packed with and based on His in-depth religious knowledge, spiritual insights and practical experience. It contains practical and philosophical answers to the sincere enquiries of all types of aspirants regarding life in this world and the life hereafter.

The Vachanamrut is not only a sacred shastra in the Swaminarayan faith, but a shastra of every day study. All the literate followers read it daily and the illiterate listen to at least a page everyday. It is read and elaborated upon daily in the Swaminarayan mandirs the world over. It is a landmark shastra, philosophically and in all other aspects. It is the first modern Gujarati prose work which the noted Gujarati critic and poet, Shri Uma Shankar Joshi, acclaimed as the very pinnacle of Gujarati prose. The Vachanamrut, a compilation of 273 spiritual discourses, is divided into 10 sections. The discourses were delivered by Bhagwan Swaminarayan in the last decade of his life, between 1819 and 1829 CE in Gujarati. They were mostly delivered in ashram-like ambience in secluded places like Gadhada, Sarangpur, Kariyani, Loya, Panchala, Vadtal, Aslali, and Jetalpur.

The book records the dialogues and conversation between the master and his disciples, answering philosophical and religious questions, explaining doctrines, and formulating terminology concerning both theoretical and practical points of view in daily life and spiritual sadhna.

Vachanamrut is a compound word of two Gujarati words, vachan and amrut. Vachan means words or speech and amrut means nectar. Hence the Vachanamrut comprises the nectarine or divine words of Bhagwan Swaminarayan. The Vachanamrut is the amrut (divine nectar) of Bhagwan Swaminarayan in the form of His divine words. This amrut leads the jivas to moksha.

The discourses were transcribed not by a 1 editor but by five contemporary scholarly-sadhus while they were being delivered. These editors were:

Muktanand Swami, the senior most sadhu of Ramanand Swami, 23 years senior to Bhagwan Swaminarayan. He was the teacher of Bhagwan Swaminarayan when he first arrived in Gujarat. Muktanand Swami is the author of Brahmasutra Bhashya Ratnam, a commentary on the Vedanta Sutra of Badrayana Vyas.

Gopalanand Swami, who had mastered ashtang yoga, wrote a commentary on the Dashopanishad and Bhagvad Gita.

Nityanand Swami, a profound Sanskrit scholar, authored the Hari Digvijay Kavya in Sanskrit.

Shukanand Swami, was a well-known Sanskrit scholar from Dabhan and the personal secretary of the Master.

Brahmanand Swami a Jocular Born Poet, by the instructions of Lord Swaminarayan Brahmanand Swami erected three magnificent temples in Muli, Vadtal, Junagadh also as an eminent poet he composed about 9000 devotional songs, which are popular as Brahmanand Kavya.

In one of the Vachanamruts, one of the editors, namely, Nityanand Swami, presents 114 edited discourses to Bhagwan Swaminarayan for his approval. He was pleased with the efforts of the editors and authenticated their compilation.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Modern, fundamental Hinduism for everyone 28 mars 2015
Par Jon L. Albee - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Vachanamrut is the collected teachings of Bhagwan Swaminarayan, and is his distillation of the complex and varied Hindu sacred texts for the modern Hindu sect that bears his name. It is studied today in the Swaminarayan Sampraday.

Swaminarayan himself, the author, was born Ghanshyam Pande in the state of Uttar Pradesh in India. After a seven-year pilgrimage across India, he settled down to become the spiritual leader of the Uddhav Sampraday in Gujarat, adopting the name Swaminarayan upon his veneration as an incarnation of God. These texts, originally composed in Gujarati with many Sanskrit terms throughout, and somewhat academically translated by five of Swaminarayan's most devoted Sanskrit scholars, are the greater sum of his teachings and reflect the spiritual essence of Hinduism. As a fundamental, revivalist text, these teachings are devoid of the kind of emotional mysticism that came to dominate so many popular Hindu and Buddhist interpretations of scripture of the time. One way to think about this book and its following is to compare it to another modern revival, for example, the Mormons. The Vachanamrut is to Hinduism somewhat like the Book of Mormon is to Christianity.

This is a good book to read from anyone looking to better understand fundamental Hinduism, and is absolutely essential for any person seeking to understand the Swaminarayan Sampraday, particularly the popular and influential Bochasanwasi Shri Akshar Purushottam Swaminarayan Sanstha (BAPS).
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Perfect book to reach highest spiritual level without reading Vedas, Upanishads, Gita etc. 24 juillet 2014

Swaminarayan Bhagwan told about multi-universe 250 yrs ago. We realized it now. However you need a person who knows about this book to explain all details like saint etc. All other books from different religious are written after all gods left this world. So difficult to prove their truth but This book contain lord swaminarayan word spoken by himself and written when he was on this earth.

The way this book is written tends to get very dry frequently and is challenging to keep on reading. I could only get thru a about 30% of it before I gave in. As a person whose Gujarati is not very polished, I do not have the time or patience to ask people what every other word means in this book. There is a glossary of sorts but at times that can also get confusing as some words and usages are pretty intricate and, no doubt, lost in translation. Wish there was a cleaner translation out there, but I feel that I will have to learn to read/understand Gujarati on a deeper level to get the true essence of this book.
