Shāstriji Mahārāj’s favorite Vachanāmrut is Gadhadā II-7, Yogiji Mahārāj’s favorite is Vachanāmrut Gadhadā III-2 and Pramukh Swāmi Mahārāj’s favorite is Vachanāmrut Gadhadā III-7.

[Yogi Gita Marma: 188]

 

Once, Brahmaswarup Pramukh Swāmi Mahārāj was in the village of Ranu. Situated in the village is a shrine dedicated to Tulajā Mātā, where Nilkanth Varni had halted for one night during his travels. When Swāmishri proceeded there for darshan, the mahant of that mandir showed Swāmishri a quilt that had been sanctified by Nilkanth Varni. Thereafter, he showed the Hindi version of the Vachanāmrut that he owned to Swāmishri and requested, “Please kindly write your blessings in this Vachanāmrut and write which is your favorite Vachanāmrut.” Swāmishri wrote: “Vachanāmrut Gadhadā III-7, Gadhadā III-11 and Vartāl 20.”

 

1 January 1986, Sārangpur. This Vachanāmrut is Param Pujya Pramukh Swāmi Mahārāj’s favorite Vachanāmrut. Once, he was asked, “What is your most favorite Vachanāmrut and for what reason?”

Swāmishri revealed, “In a way, all Vachanāmruts are dear to me; therefore there is no such favorite or not favorite. However, I have a natural inclination towards Vachanāmrut Gadhadā III-7. In this Vachanāmrut, Mahārāj says, ‘Those that aspire to achieve ultimate liberation should not consider anything in this world to be more blissful than God and the Sant.’ If we have resolutely fixed this thought into our mind, we can maintain constant love and affinity towards the manifest form of God. Therefore, I have a natural liking for these words – that we have to consolidate this understanding in our jiva. This means we should do whatever we have to do for the Sant. So, I have a preference for this Vachanāmrut – that if we imbibe this one Vachanāmrut, Mahārāj will be pleased.”
