    Jay Swaminarayan, Waheguruji ka khalsa Waheguruji fateh,

    The Swaminarayan religion/sect is about 200 years. Some similarities it has with Sikhism:

    + Removal of superstition
    + Removal of sati
    + Allowed non Hindus to join [i.e. you didn't have to be born into it]
    + Removed vanity based on caste, creed, said all castes can reach God and are equal, no caste is untouchable [however, castes were still expected to stick to their assigned tasks etc.]
    + Uplifted women [built Mandirs for them, forgave a prostitute]

    If anyone else has more to add, please do...
