Pujya Pramukh Swami Maharaj is the fifth
spiritual successor of Lord Swaminarayan and the present leader of the Bochasanwasi Shri
Akshar Purushottam Swaminarayan Sanstha.
Swamiji leads an austere life of lifetime
celibacy, without personal wealth or comfort. He represents the Hindu Tradition in all its
purity. In his presence, doubts dissolve, confusions clear, hurts heal and the mind finds
peace. People find valid answed to life's toughest questions.
Even at the age of 78, he continuously travels
in society to attend to the smallest need of an individual. Having personally counselled
over 500,000 people, read and replied to 435,000 letters, Swamiji has also visited over
12,000 villages and 250,000 homes. His compassion for humanity, deep concern for its
problems and conscious efforts to alleviate them, have given rise to international moral,
social, educational, cultural and spiritual projects. His striking humility, wisdom
and simplicity have touched many world religious and national leaders. But most important
is his quiet, undisturbed love for God which rises beyond all borders of nation, religion,
race and reason. This makes him universally revered and respected, for he has a heart
wherein the whole world can live.
