HISTORY
Establishing A New Path Brahmaswarup Param Pujya Yogiji Maharaj was a profound visionary who believed that whilst religion should remain intact, the manner in which it is practiced must be progressive and in keeping with the times. He believed that the best way to serve God was to learn both, to recognize that God exists within every individual and to serve Him by serving humanity. Brahmaswarup Param Pujya Yogiji Maharaj was therefore determined to develop a new, more contemporary order in which sadhus would freely live and work within society, remaining accessible to all seekers, but practicing renunciation from within.

http://www.anoopam.org/index.php

Brahmaswarup Param Pujya Yogiji Maharaj inspired Saheb and eight others to become sadhus and, with His blessings, asked Saheb, as their leader, to pioneer this new Swaminarayan order thus the Anoopam Mission was born.

Living simply and frugally, in a commune-like setting, the Anoopam Mission 'Vratdhari Sadhaks' are self-reliant and together perform all of their own household and campus maintenance work. In addition, as many of the sadhaks are particularly well educated, many are engaged in local industries. The rest are involved in supporting the Mission's various activities. Importantly, as the income of the sadhaks more than offsets the cost of their upkeep, ALL of their surplus income, including their time and energy, are devoted towards charitable work. This unique self-sufficiency ensures that every cent of incoming charitable donations goes directly towards the activities for which they are intended. Today a host of charitable activities are being carried out in the fields of education, healthcare, social welfare and relief work. Through Guruvarya

http://www.anoopam.org/index.php
Param Pujya Sahebji's guidance and support, over 100 sadhaks, work together with devotees towards elevated spiritual practice and continuously expanding charitable works.

The sadhaks' attire is highly symbolic. It consists solely of a sky blue colored shirt and crme colored trousers. The crme color is symbolic of the earth and of our position. The blue is the color of the sky and is symbolic of the highest spiritual state, which is union with God. The attire therefore is symbolic of the quest to rise from our current state to the highest spiritual state.

A saffron and white colored badge is also worn. The logo of Anoopam Mission, an eight-spoke wheel, is depicted in the center of the badge. The saffron color is symbolic of renunciation and purification, which must be practiced internally. The wheel is symbolic of Anoopam Mission, with Saheb as its center. Each of the eight spokes represents the principles by which internal purification is achieved. Each spoke is also representative of the eight brothers who received Brahmaswarup Param Pujya Yogiji Maharaj's blessings and instructions to go forth onto this new path

PHILOSOPHY
Swaminarayan Philosophy

http://www.anoopam.org/index.php
Introduction

Hinduism has been preserved by its many streams and faiths. The richness and diversity has provided fuel for many spiritual paths, the ultimate destination of which is the same, the Supreme Reality.The Swaminarayan movement was founded by a great social and spiritual reformer, Lord Swaminarayan (17811830 AD). As a manifestation of God Himself, Lord Swaminarayan arrived on this earth during a time of great social and spiritual turmoil. But in the short span of 49 years, He addressed many social ills, revive Hinduism and provided a spiritual path, the Swaminarayan Philosophy, to last the ages.

A Summary of the Life and Work of Lord Swaminarayan

Lord Swaminarayan appeared on earth on 3rd April 1781 in the North Indian village of Chhapaiya, near Ayodhya. From the beginning, stories and experiences abound that indicated His extraordinary nature Childhood Known then as "Ghanshyam", by the age of seven He had already mastered the Holy Scriptures the Vedas, Upanishads, Ramayan, Bhagwatam etc. Teenage Asceticism When only 11 years old, He renounced his family and became a yogi. Then known as "Nilkanth Varni ", He proceeded to climb the Himalayas barefooted and perform severe austerities, such as standing on one leg and meditating in bare

http://www.anoopam.org/index.php
body amidst snowstorms for 3 months. He then embarked, on foot, on a momentous 7-year pilgrimage of over 12,000 kilometers in His search for a spiritual guide. At the age of 18, He ultimately reached His goal by adopting Ramanand Swami as His Guru in the state of Gujarat. Guru Ramanand Swami initiated Nilkanth as a sadhu and gave him the name "Sahajanand". The Swaminarayan Movement - The Beginning Recognizing Sahajanand's spiritual greatness and overlooking more senior sadhus, Ramanand Swami ceremoniously installed Sahajanand, at the tender age of 21, as His spiritual successor. Soon after the death of Guru Ramanand Swami, Sahajanand gathered all of His disciples and instructed them to chant the Divine mantra "Om Swaminarayan". By doing so, He Promised to bear their every burden and to provide them with His strength and guidance.From then onwards He was known as "Lord Swaminarayan". Social and Spiritual Reforms To arrest the significant decline in social, cultural and moral standards, Lord Swaminarayan, through the Shikshaapatri (a sacred book of ethics), outlined the Hindu moral codes for everyday life. It provided practical guidance on familial, social, financial, hygienic, moral, and spiritual issues. Lord Swaminarayan also initiated 500 ascetics, which were of the highest degree. Selfless and spiritually motivated, they practiced strict disciplines and continuously moved through society, carrying the message of purity. They helped abolish superstitions, addictions and inhumane practices such as Dudhpiti and Sati. They also dugged wells and set up alms-houses in times of famines and droughts.

http://www.anoopam.org/index.php

His Teachings and Philosophy The basic foundation of the Swaminarayan philosophy involves a principle called "Vishishtha Adwaitvad". This concept stipulates that the Lord can not dwell on this earth without His Divine Abode. Lord Swaminarayan referred to Anadi Mul Akshar Murti Shri Gunatitanand Swami, a God-Realized saint who had risen above all qualities to attain oneness with the Lord, as His Abode.

Five Spiritual Vows : DO NOT STEAL DO NOT EAT MEAT DO NOT TAKE ALCOHOL OR ANY INTOXICANT DO NOT COMMIT ADULTERY DO NOT INDULGE IN AN IMPURE LIFE

Lord Swaminarayan directed his followers to observe 5 spiritual vows that are common for most Hindus.

"Panch Vartamaan" The observance of these vows would purify His followers lives and prepare them for spiritual advancement. For His sadhus, Lord Swaminarayan prescribed 5 primary principles called the "Panch Vartamaan". NISSNEH Attachment - free NISHKAM Lust - free NIRLOBH Greed - free Lifetime celibacy No possessions. Not even to touch money Unattached to place, people or family NISWAD Taste - free No Preference in food or taste NIRMAN Ego - free Untouched by pride or anger

The Holy Scripture of the Swaminarayan faith is called the Vachnaamritam and consists of a historical collection of 262 spiritual discourses delivered by Lord Swaminarayan in the Gujarati language. It is a catechism, filled with logic, metaphors and analogies, and divine revelations that provide philosophical and practical answers to the mysteries and questions of life.

* How to overcome depression * How to identify real friends * How to calm anger * How to remove ego and jealousy * How to develop faith * How to recognize a true guru * How to realize God

The Swaminarayan Movement - Today and the Future

The Spiritual Succession At the age of 49, Lord Swaminarayan left this earth for His Divine Abode. But in His teachings, Lord Swaminarayan assured his followers that he would continue to manifest on earth through an uninterrupted succession of Gunatit saints. Guided by these saints, Lord Swaminarayan's devotees would reach "Akshardham", or the Highest State of Consciousness.

Guruvarya Param Pujya Sahebji is such a Gunatit saint, for a new day and age...

The Ongoing Quest The Swaminarayan order is arguably the fastest growing segment of the Hindu religion. Within the order are several branches, of which some of the most significant are mentioned below the present head of several branches:

The Anoopam Mission - under the direction of Guruvarya Param Pujya Sahebji

Bochasanwasi Shri Akshar Purushottam Swaminarayan Sanstha (BAPS) - under the direction of Brahmaswaroop Param Pujya Pramukhswami Maharaj

Gunatit Jyot - under the direction of Param Pujya Pappaji The Yogi Divine Society - under the direction of Param Pujya Hariprasad Swamiji

The Vadtal gadi - under the direction of Acharya Param Pujya Rakeshprasadji Maharaj

The Amdavad gadi - under the direction of Acharya Param Pujya Koshalendraprasadji Maharaj

http://www.anoopam.org/index.php
founded by Param Pujya Kakaji

The Maninagar Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Sansthan - under the direction of Acharya Swamishree Purushottam priyadasji Maharaj

Each branch of the Swaminarayan order is led by a Divine Guru and all share the same goal espoused by Lord Swaminaryan: the continued moral, spiritual and cultural upliftment of humanity.

Anoopam Mission Goals

The Anoopam Mission undertakes its spiritual philosophy through a fusion of 'bhakti yoga' (the yoga of devotion) and 'karma yoga' (the yoga of action). Bhakti yoga is devotion to the Supreme Reality and includes prayer, chanting and meditation. But in actuality, it also goes much beyond this to incorporate a state of mind in which every word, thought and action is dedicated to the Lord. Karma yoga involves performing selfless service - expecting nothing by way of compensation, gratitude or praise - and humbly offering the results of the work to the Lord. The devotion to the Lord, which is inherent in both bhakti yoga and karma yoga, evolves out of dedication to the living guru who has attained the status of 'Akshar' - or oneness with God. Thus complete dedication to this guru leads the guru's devotee to himself attain oneness with the 'Purushottam' - meaning the Supreme Reality or God. The Anoopam Missions vratdhari sadhaks practice devotion by living according to the every word of their guru, Saheb. He instructs them to live a life that reflects truth, love, devotion, nonviolence and compassion. He emphasizes the need to recognize the Divine in every human being. Saheb inspires the sadhaks to do this by serving humanity for it results in the service to the Lord Himself. Therefore, under Saheb's guidance, the vratdhari sadhaks perform bhakti yoga through various devotional activities such as organizing religious celebrations, performing in the Mission's musical group (for singing devotional songs), engaging in the routine functioning of the temple, etc. In the same way, karma yoga is practiced through chores, employment and humanitarian service. The humanitarian service takes the form of Anoopam Mission's services for all of humanity (regardless of caste, color, creed or religion) in the areas of education, healthcare and social welfare. In summary, all of the Anoopam Mission's actions and all the fruits of the actions are dedicated as humble offerings to the Lord.

Location Anoopam Mission's head quarter known as "Brahmajyoti", is spread over 40 acres of land in village Mogri, at the outskirts of famous educational town of Vallabh Vidyanagar in Central Gujarat. Contact Details || Driving Directions The Temple The Temple structure at Brahmajyoti has a unique history. Guruvarya Param Pujya Sahebji, a protagonist with prime vision "modern education with religion" decided to divert all funds (initially allocated for an elaborate "Shikhar Baddh" mandir) to construct a women's college at Dhari, a

http://www.anoopam.org/index.php
very remote backward region of Saurashtra-Gujarat and birthplace of his guru Yogiji Maharaj. The existing temple 'Parmita' is pyramid shaped representing that a single divine source is the 'cause and effect' of the universe beneath. In 1993, on the auspicious occasion of Anoopam Diksha Rajatotsav (Silver Jubilee Celebrations of Anoopam Mission), Parmita abode marble deities of Lord Swaminarayan, Brahmaswarup Gunatitanand Swami and Brahmaswarup Gopalanand Swami in the holy presence of Guruvarya Param Pujya Sahebji, Param Pujya Pappaji and Param Pujya Hariprasad Swamiji. Campus Senario History In the early 1980s, Anoopam Mission was aspiring to acquire land in Vallabh Vidyanagar for its expansion and social activities. This search concluded in village Mogri, outskirts of Vallabh Vidyanagar, at the existing site. Subsequently, it was realized that The Lord has bestowed this land, as Brahmaswarup P.P. Yogiji Maharaj himself had sanctified the meadows, while passing by. He had rested under a mango tree (now located at the center of the campus & called 'Hriday Kunj') and with His blessings, the adjacent well swelled with potable water to become the chief source for agriculture. Even till this day, the well supports ecology on this 'Tapobhoomi'.
