During His manifestation the places visited by Him become the divine shrines. Any object, entity or thing used by Bhagawan becomes great treasure for His followers. During His embodiment, Bhagawan Shree Swaminarayan Has bestowed with number of such divine things as a symbol of bliss. These highly divine things are known as 'Prasadi' in Sampraday.
