#bhaktachintamani #audiobook #swaminarayan

The importance of scripture depends mainly on four topics. First is the subject interpreted in as the entire aim of the scripture depends on its main theme. Secondly the firm faith of the author towards the aim which inspired him to write it. In spite of pure aim and staunch faith; crystal clear knowledge of the subject is essential as a third step. The last significant point is the language which fulfills the purpose of genuine subject, interpretation with devotion and presentation of knowledge. Simple, interesting, motivating, meaningful and prefect. Aesthetic language can only serve the purpose. The scripture with proper blend of all four aspects stands for the greatest value.

In the case of Bhaktachintamani, aim is quite and pious which transforms the mind of devotees in the divine form of pragat parabrahm, Bhagavan Shri Swaminarayan with utmost devotion. Firm faith of vairagyamurti Sadguru Shri Nishkulanand swami towards this high aim is the prominent fact of the Sampraday, which is obvious from his forsaking and devotional life-style and great poems as well as scriptures written by him. Thirdly; for information of content Sadguru shri Nishkulanand swami has observed and enjoyed the divine deeds of Bhagavan Shri Swaminarayan; as a staunch follower. What is more about the authentication of information with him ! The language of swamiji is matured enough yet simple, substantial, poetic, genuine, distinct and highly devotional. His devotion, graciousness and greatness can be experienced in each verse of Bhaktachintamani. His excellent descriptive power of elaborated and elevated language can be enjoyed by the readers.

The marvellous, supernatural and divine deeds (Charitras) of Bhagavan Shri Swaminarayan are narrated in this scripture. These delightful Charitras - the devine deeds- can fulfill the desires of any one who remembers them. So the name Bhakta-chintamani is consistent with the matter. The author Sadguru shri Nishkulanad swami himself writes:

Chhe . Bhakta Chintāmaņi nām re,
Je je chintave te thāy kām re;
Hete gāy sune à granth re,
Teno prabhu pure manorath re.

(As it fulfils all desires of devotes the name of this scripture is Bhaktchintamani. Bhagavan fulfils one's wish who sings or listens this scripture with love and devotion.)

Exposing the glory of this scripture Swami says:
Bhaktachintāmaņi granth kahyo, satasangi ne sukharup; Temā charitra pragat nā, Ati param pāvan anup. Bijā granth to bahu ja chhe, Sanskrut Prākut soi: Jemā charitra Mahārāj nā, vali varnavyā vāramvār; Van sambhārye sambhāre, Hari murti haiyā mozār.

(This Bhakta Chintamani scripture is beneficial and blissful for devotees. It consists the divine, pious and outstanding deeds of pragat Bhagavan Shri Swaminarayan. There are many other scriptures in Sanskrit and local languages. But for the followers of pragat Bhagavan this is an unparalleled, in which charitras of Bhagavan Shri Swaminarayan are described; by means of which one can remember Murti of Shriji Maharaj in his heart easily.)

To nurture the Sampraday, Swami indicates:
Rām upāsi ne Rām-charitra re, suņi mane sahuthi pavitra re; Krushna uapāsi ne Krushna lilā re, mane mud suņe thai bhelä re; Tem Sahajānandi jan jeh re, suņi ānand pāmashe eh re.

(For the followers of Bhagavan Shri Ram, divine deeds (Chasritras) of Bhagavan Shri Ram are the best for pleasure of the Life. Likewise; the followers of Bhagavan Shri Krishna; get the pleasure in listening to the divine deeds of Bhagavan Shri Krishna. In the same way; the followers of Shri Sahajanand Swami i.e. Bhagavan Shri Swaminarayan; get pleasure in listening to the divine deeds of the Lord Swaminarayan.)

In concluding verse Nishkulanand Swami says,
Sukh sampatti pāme te jan re, rākhe à granth kari jatan re; Shikhe shikhave lakhe lakhāvere, tene trividhi tāp na āve re; Āvyā kashț mā kathā karāve re, thāy sukh dukh nede nāve re.

(One, who will care for this scripture, will definitely get happiness and prosperity. One who learn or teaches this scripture will get rid of all miseries. One can come out of any worry if he makes katha-parayan of this scripture.)

Thus; the theme of this scripture is unparalleled. Hence it received the praise of all from all quarters just like Vachanamrutam. Even today; the entire Sampraday is getting the spiritual benefit and also inspiration from this great scripture Bhakta-Chintāmaņi.
