Pramukh Swami’s Successor will be His Holiness Mahant Swami

Pujya Doctor Swami also added that four years ago, on 20 July 2012, His Holiness Pramukh Swami Maharaj had declared in a letter that His Holiness Mahant
Swami (Sadhu Keshavjivandas) would succeed him as the guru of BAPS. Thus, His Holiness Mahant Swami is now the president of BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha,
as the sixth spiritual head in the gunatit guru parampara tradition of Bhagwan Swaminarayan.

Henceforth, he will steer BAPS and further the great teachings and works of Bhagwan Swaminarayan and His Holiness Pramukh Swami Maharaj.
