Dear Devotees, Lord Sahjanand swami, declared his name “SWAMINARAYAN” at fareni on the fourteenth day of the obscure Shree Ramanand swami in the assembly of 25000 devotees and this way, uddhav creed turned into Swaminarayan creed. This grand historical day was Thursday, 31/12/1801. Lord Swaminarayan sent Shitaldas into a trance and showed Akshardham only by the incantation “SWAMINARAYAN”. Then by chanting only the “Swaminarayan” mantra, all present devotees went into a trance and saw Akshardham.
Shitaldas and all present devotees believed in Lord Swaminarayan and considered him supreme of all gods i. e. Purna Purusottam. This way, the village Fareni has its origin in the Swaminarayan creed & Swaminarayan incantation. Until A.D. 2002, this Fareni, the root of the Swaminarayan philosophy, remained unexposed primarily in the world. H. H. Shastri Balkrishnadasaji Swami came to Fareni with his saints and established Sahjanand Sanskar Dham. In A.D. 2011, H.H.Shastri Balkrishnadasji swami celebrated the 210th birth anniversary of the “Swaminarayan” mantra with great enthusiasm and spread the name “fareni” all over the world.
