Marble Swaminarayan Statue - Bhuvneshwari Moorti Art
Swami Narayan Statue is Purushottam – the God Supreme. Lord Swaminarayan accepted the basics of this ideology but with distinct differences indicating His own divinity.
The Lord as the Master and Gunatitanand Swami as the ideal devotee, the disciple. On earth, every spiritual Guru in Bhagwan Swaminarayan’s succession is the incarnation of Aksharbrahman.
As every Guru is the same Aksharbrahman entity, the devotees feel no spiritual change. This is except the physical change of another successor. It is clear that the Guru is not God, but is God’s ideal devotee in whom God resides eternally.
Lord Swaminarayan revealed there are five, not three, eternal and real entities; Jeeva, Maya, Ishwar, Bhrama, and Parabhrama. Parashurama is the supreme Lord. The other four entities dependent on and are obedient to Him. These four entities remain distinct, but not separate from the Lord.
