Since the dawn of time, scriptures have been considered the base of the Hindu faith. Due to the Veda and other scriptures Hindu civilization thrived.

The progress of any holy fellowship largely depends on their scriptures that communicate its founder’s objective, principles, philosophy and rules of the members of holy fellowship.

Out of great compassion to humankind, Bhagwan Swaminarayan commanded the scholar saints to compose the scriptures so that members of holy fellowship and people at large could benefit for centuries even when He was not physically present.

Bhagwan Swaminarayan’s prime objective was to redeem innumerable souls and to show them the way to reach ‘Akshardham’ and achieve their ultimate goal.

Dozens of scriptures were composed in the holy fellowship. The most important among them are the Shikshapatri, the Vachanamrut, and the Satsangi Jivan.

All three scriptures are considered to the most authentic, as they were composed either by Bhagwan Swaminarayan Himself or under His direct supervision.
