Devotional Path of Shree Swaminarayan Bhagwan: Principles and Global Legacy

As followers of Shree Swaminarayan Bhagwan (1781-1830), we are a Hindu (Sanatan) sect bound by the devotional path he illuminated of love, devotion, and ethical living. The main principles we adhere to include vegetarianism, non-alcoholism, no stealing, and no adultery. Our temples worldwide, such as Shree Swaminarayan Temple Kalupur (our headquarters in India and the first-ever Swaminarayan Temple), stand as testaments to his divine grace and his legacy of establishing pure devotion for spiritual upliftment. Even thousands of miles away, the Midwest Shree Swaminarayan Temple fosters the same environment for souls to embark on their spiritual journey and purification.
