On Gurupoornima, Hariprasad Swamiji spoke about four blessings that Swaminarayan Bhagwan gave to mankind:
(1) If your devotee is destined to suffer the sting of one scorpion, may the distress of the stings of millions and millions of scorpions befall on each and every pore of My body, but no pain should afflict your devotee. (Vachanamrut Gadhada First 70)
(2) If a begging bowl is written in your devotee's fate, may that begging bowl come to me, but on no account should Your devotee suffer from lack of food or clothing. (Vachanamrut Gadhada First 70)
(3) At the time of their death, I will come to get My devotees; know that this promise will not change. (Bhaktachintamani 68/9)
(4) I will always remain present on this earth through saints that are beyond kanchana (gold or greed), kaaminee (lust or desires), and kirtee (fame or ego).
