From the Author, Inside Flap, Back Cover:
In the early nineteen century, Bhagwan Swaminarayan reinvigorated devotional Hinduism across northwestern India. Bhagwan Swaminarayan was worshiped by millions. He promised to remain accessible to his devotees through a lineage of God-realized sadhus (monks), the first of whom was Gunatitanand Swami.
The head priest of a large temple, Gunatitanand Swami was an inspirational spiritual giant who molded countless souls into more perfect beings. According to historical records, he was particularly fond of engaging in spiritual discussions and delivering spiritual discourses. His spiritual discourses, moreover, were so powerful and convincing that his disciples not only enjoyed them, but that they also sought to preserve them for future generations. Swamini Vato, literally meaning 'Swami's talks', is a compilation of his sayings and quotes from his discourses. Short, yet profound, each one can stir one's soul and transform one's consciousness. Addressing topics such as how to love God and humbly serve others, Gunatitanand Swami's talks are truly a lifeline for any spiritual aspirant.
