Swami’s Controversial Video: Alleged Removal of Deities from Hindu Temples

Controversy at Sarangpur Hanuman Temple: A video of Acharya Dinesh Prasad from the Swaminarayan tradition in Rajkot has gone viral on social media. In the video, he says, ‘People from other religions call me, and I assure you that Bhagwan will take away all your sorrows and illnesses. Now, there is no need for anyone from the Sanatan Dharma community to be different from me.

Ahmedabad: After the removal of paintings below the statue of ‘King of Sarangpur,’ controversy has settled. However, another video involving a Swami from the Swaminarayan tradition has sparked much discussion today. In this video, the alleged Swami Dinesh Prasad is seen applying tilak on a person’s forehead, similar to Swaminarayan. This video has now gone viral, where they claim that it is the command of Lord Swaminarayan to remove deities from temples. It is noteworthy that not long ago, a similar video of the head priest in Vadatala had also gone quite viral.

Swaminarayan Bhagwan has distanced himself from the followers of Sanatan Dharma.

In this video, the alleged Acharya Dinesh Prasad states that Swaminarayan Bhagwan’s command is to remove deities from temples, and Swaminarayan Bhagwan has distanced himself from the followers of Sanatan Dharma. We no longer associate any deities with us. Our Bhagwan is now separate from the entire religion. In the future, the Swaminarayan mantra will work completely. Thus, people of Hinduism or any other religion who do not believe in deities other than Sanatan will accept Swaminarayan Bhagwan.

Apart from following the commands of God, all sects are bound to be bound.

This Swami also states that people from other religions call him, and he assures them that God will take away all their sorrows and illnesses. Now, those from the Sanatan Dharma community are not different from us. Apart from following the commands of God, all sects are bound to be bound, and we are removing other deities from temples.

Who is in the viral video?

In this context, the question arises, who is the person seen in the video at last. What is the reason for making this video viral, and who has shared this video on social media? It is essential to investigate all aspects of this matter.

Response from Dwarka’s Head Priest

Dwarka’s head priest, Vijaydasji, has expressed his views on this matter, stating, I believe Dinesh Prasad is a misguided individual. His statements do not align with our meditation practices. Such matters do not have a place in Hinduism.

Response from Saint Jyotirnath

In response to the situation, Saint Jyotirnath, representing the Sanatan Dharma, has stated, If someone is not part of Sanatan, let them give up their beliefs. We will happily embrace and establish our own traditions. Speaking against it will teach the people a lesson. The limits of tolerance have been crossed. Some individuals are causing strife within society.
