Charnavind - Lords Lotus Feet

Go back to: Articles

Distinct features made Lord Swaminarayan unique and divine.  He had many beauty spots all over His body. These features and cheens are those that only Almighty God Supreme would possess.

 

Lotus feet of Lord Swaminarayan

The Lord has sixteen symbolic icons on His Lotus Feet, with nine cheens on His right foot and seven on His left foot.  These cheens are unique to Almighty God and no other human being on the earth possesses such features.  One can recognise Almighty God Supreme by observing His divine Lotus Feet. 

One gains guidance and help to the path of righteousness and salvation through meditating and focusing upon the Lotus Feet of Lord. Nishkulanand Swami examined the qualities of each cheen. One achieves the following results of the mind and soul through meditation upon each cheen.
