Swaminarayan is not Lord Krishna, Swami told to worship Lord Krishna, he himself was worshipping Shiv and Vishnu. His "kuldev" was Lord Hanuman.
Swaminarayan temple devotees are going to a wrong path i say, but soon they all will realize, its not far. There are only 3 main gods and that is Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh and 3 main goddess Maa Parvati, Maa Lakshmi and Maa Saraswati. Above all there is Maa Gayatri who is the Ved mata.
Before worshipping any god or goddess most of the people worship Lord Ganesha, i recently invited some of my Swaminarayan devotees to come to Celebrate Ganesh Chaturhi but they never replied to my invitation nor even made a courtesy call to me...
There are very few on this earth who knows why there are 3 spikes in a "Trishul", does any one here ?
Jai Shri Krishna
