Swaminarayan belief

The Swaminarayan Sampraday was established by Bhagwan Shree Swaminarayan in early 18th Century. Founded on the pillars of practical spirituality, it reaches out far and wide to clear the confusions and questions that crowd the moral, social and material world of today.
Its strength lies in the purity of its nature and purpose. The Sect strives to better the world by consolidating character in societies, families and individuals. This is done not just by mottos and slogans but by mass motivation and individual attention, through elevating projects for all, irrespective of class, creed, color and country.
Such moral purity and spiritual surety add a deeper brilliance to all the hundreds of social services performed for Better Life through its 6 basic organs, namely Deity, Mandir, Aacharya, Scripture, Saint and Disciple.
No Stealing, No Adultery, No Alcohol, No Meat, No Impurity of body and mind – these are the five principal vows.
Such moral purity and spiritual surety add a deeper brilliance to all the hundreds of social services performed for Better Life.
