  1. A devotee who is resolute in sānkhya:

  1. A devotee who is resolute in yoga and sānkhya:
  1. He realizes that, with the exception of God’s Akshardhām, the form of God in that Akshardhām and His devotees in that Akshardhām, everything else - all of the realms, the deities, and the opulence of the deities - is perishable and maintains profound love only for God.
  2. He never experiences any sort of hindrances whatsoever when encountering adverse circumstances.
  3. Just as a choko (kitchen: in the Swaminarayan sampradāy, place where renunciants and devotees eat) is mopped clean after a meal has been eaten, similarly, this devotee’s understanding is pure [i.e. he believes everything except God, Akshardhām and the muktas is wiped cleaned - perishable.]
