Guru HDH Bapji holds the unique persona of unholding the principles of Lord Swaminarayan. That's why his famous life motto is: "Siddhantma samadhan nahi ane niyam dharma ma chutchat nahi." (Meaning "There should be no compromise in the principles and the rules and regulations") On the mission of upholding the principles of Shriji Maharaj and Beloved Abjibapashri, he has never given into the words or the pressure of anyone. He has stayed convicted to one principle: "Sarvopari Swaminarayan Bhagwanni upasna dradh karavi anadimuktni sthiti pamadvi." (meaning: "To teach all of the supremacy of Lord Swaminarayan and to have all attain the ultimate state of an anadimukta.") This divine persona has suffered a lot of hurdles and oppositions in upholding these principles but he has never let go. Not only that but he has uplifted a hive os sants and devotees who would give their lives for these principles. This gift of SMVS is what he has given to the world. To live a life in these principles means you have to stand out of the crowd and become the center for criticism but he has happily accepted this for one reason; To see Lord Swaminarayan's dream come to reality.
No matter the harsh words spoken by any small or big person, HDH Bapji would not develop hatred towards them. At one point he was struck by storms of opposition yet he had never in his heart had any enmity for anyone. The word ‘enemy' has never been a part of his dictionary. ‘Eye for an eye' has never been his philosophy but rather he would even help those who would hurt. He drinks the hate of opposers and yet has never wished ill for them. Not only that but he has taught his sants and devotees to never keep this type of attitude but rather see the world with eyes of grace and mercy. His unconditional mercy is described perfectly by great sants: "Kene dukh devono dilma re bhule bhundo bhav nahi, Par upkare palpalma re upje icha antar thi."
Vachnamrut is the holy scripture composed of the spoken words of Lord Swaminarayan himself. Vachnamrut is also the holy scripture that HDH Bapji loves very much. He would always say that from all the scriptures, Vachnamrut is the best and all scriptures are contained in the Vachnamrut. The cures to all sicknesses, social and spiritual, are in the Vachnamrut. That is why he wanted all to learn and teach the Vachnamrut.
He has simplified and explained the deep and complex meanings behind every word of the Vachnamrut. He has explained the same Vachnamrut many times over and yet each time it would feel new. That's why whenever he would explain the Vachnamruts everyone would feel as if Shriji Maharaj himself is explaining his own words. This is why Guru HDH Bapji is famously known as the Acharya of the Vachnamrut (Sage of the Vachnamrut).
"Sagar jeva dilada jeva kedi nav chalkai ji,
Jerana ghutada ne jiravi jane pachi amrut sau ne pai…"
"An ocean-like heart that never spills,
Absorbing poison-like words and feeding nectar to all…"
One can see these words personified in HDH Bapji's life. Although he is a divine being, free from any mundane attributes, he has endured the insults of even feeble, mere people. Even in the insults, he has never felt insulted but he has always born it with a smiling face. Never has he had a longing for praise or loathing for insults. To him, both are equal. Furthermore, he has never kept any difference between the praiser and the insulters. He has always kept equality and has always wished well for all.
