Swaminarayan, a reforming Hindu leader, wrote these moral and spiritual codes for everyday life in 1826. They were to be read, heard or venerated daily. He gave this copy to the Governor of Bombay, Sir John Malcolm, to promote understanding between cultures. To this day the book remains sacred, an object of veneration for 20 million followers of Swaminarayan.
