God resides in all living forms,
but, within you, there is only God, and nothing else.
God is an ocean of compassion, and you are also that vast ocean of compassion!
Thus, your presence on this earth and
our presence here is not a mere coincidence.
But, it is all due to your infinite grace.
You are beyond the body, beyond maya, forever absorbed in God
and here all are ordinary mortals.
However, you have benevolently accepted all as your own –
to make everyone great like you.
To show us the true path, you personally walked on this earth,
tolerating many hardships.
In you, Paramatma himself walked.
Hence, through your footsteps on the sands of time,
sacred tirths and landmarks were created that will never be erased.
They will be the exemplary path for all future generations.
Swami! What you did for us, nobody could have done.
When will we be able to repay our vast ocean of debt to you?
Sincerely, we pray that by walking in your footsteps, by following you, we can,
in the true sense, justify your divine grace.
You are amrut – the immortalizing spiritual nectar.
We pray that you forever reside in our hearts and immerse us in your eternal bliss.
Jai Swaminarayan Bapa!
With humble sashtang prostrations from
