We all know God needs a human counterpart to be able to work in the outer dimensions; for the completion of His leela. In the initial periods there was Vallabhacharya, and then came Gusainji.
These two divine gurus initiated the divine souls into Shreeji’s leela, their counting being 84 and 252 respectively.
Till the time these two highly pure souls inhabited earth Shreeji enlightened us with His Bliss of Direct Leelas.
All the 84 divine souls initiated by Vallabhacharya and later the 252 divine souls initiated by Gusainji, merged within His Being. They were the souls left over from His Shree KrishnRadha Aavtar (Incarnation) when many divine shaktis inhabited earth to take part and enjoy the bliss of Shree Krishn and Radha’s leelas.
As any shakti who comes to earth in a human form, enter the cycle of karma.
To relieve these left over jeev atmas from their earthly karmic cycles Shree KrishnRadha once again appeared as ShreeNathji from on the Govardhan hill.
They immediately manifested Their human counterparts, first as Shri Vallabhacharya, then as Shri Gusainji, who are believed to be an intimate ansh of ShreeNathji Himself.
These entire Leelas were recorded by Gusainji’s son and Vallabhacharyaji’s grand son Gokulnathji, in the two very famous documentary books; 84 Vaishnavas; 252 Vaishnav ki Varta. I call them documentary and not story; as anything which has been recorded as facts and given in the world cannot be stories; they are live experiences or history and recorded then by Gokulnathji; a part of the third generation. Facts about God and about His live Presence is not allowed unless, it is the wish of the Super Shakti Himself to give it to us.
It is a belief in Pushti maarg that experiences with any leela of Thakurjee cannot be spread out to others. It is followed by all as Thakurjee’s Hukum (divine order). It is only His Hukum that would allow any bhakt to write and document anubhuties about the leela and play of Thakurjee. None can have the courage to write about Shreeji unless He, Himself wishes it to happen. We can call it the Divine order.
There are at times certain occasions when God gives permissions for showing powers in order to show the world His Presence. This is only for the benefit of humans or when He wishes for some one to develop the required faith and aastha. The receivers are called lucky; as there obviously has to be something so strong in the past births that one becomes a saakshi (witness) to the Divine Leelas and Plays; may be a part of some also.

….taken from my website for ShreeNathji:
….. Another amazing happening I was a witness to was in the Mangala darshan when at Nathdwara with Gurushree Sudhir bhai.
I was woken up very early by Gurushree. He said, “We will go and sit in the outer parisar (compound) of ShreeNathji Haveli early today, just inside the Lal Darwaza where we always wait for Mangala on a regular basis. Shreeji has sent a hukum (order) to me to be there early.”
I have learnt from earlier experience at Nathdwara, to just follow the orders whenever Gurushree says something, as the explanations and understandings come later.
So I showered and we reached there at around 3.30 am. Once there we realized what was happening.
As there is the construction work going on around the Haveli; a truck was being loaded with the stone debris from the inside of the left side area right inside the Lal Darvaza.
It caused immense noise as the workers did not have any instructions from the temple board to work silently.
We were astonished as to how the mandir board allows this much noise all through the night.
We realized why we were called here so early when Shreeji’s melodious voice echoed, in which Shreeji told us,
“See there is no bhao. They do not even consider that I (Shreeji) am sleeping inside and would be disturbed. I called you’ll early to show this, that no one cares. Why should I stay here? All are selfish”.
The entire mandir board, as well as the Tilkayatji is responsible for this lack of proper planning and supervision in the Haveli work.
Entire nights Shreeji may have not been able to sleep because of the very loud noise of loading stones in a truck.
It is an accepted fact that Shreeji lives here, that is why none is allowed in the premises once the Shayan Darshan is over. No one inside dares to make any noise so as not to cause disturbance to Thakurjee.
How angry do ‘we’ get when during some festivals loud music is played and ‘our’ rest disturbed?
Loud noise or music is prohibited after a certain hour as it disturbs ours, humans rest and sleep.
But our Dear Shreeji, being so full of kindness and compassion lets it be. In a very sleepy and tiny voice He again said,
“Koi baat nahin, humans have lost all bhao, its ok”. “Main yahan se bhaag jaata hun, yahan soata hi nahin”. (It does not matter. Humans have lost all bhao. I run away from here. I do not sleep here any more.)

….In Nathdwara, ShreeNathji plays holi for an entire month.
This is in the month of Falgun.
This year we were lucky enough to be present there for two days during this colourful month. It was also the 14th February 2009– in our world known as Valentine’s Day which we humans celebrate as a day to express our love for our loved ones; a day to be in the company and presence of those whom we love and care for.
Shreeji understood this meaning from gurushree and Shreeji invited us there, to be present with Him on this fantastic divine day.
He wished us to be there at Nathdwara for Valentine day, in His Presence and celebrate it by playing holi with Him at Nathdwara.
It was like ‘Sone pe suhaga’ (Double anand).
What better way to celebrate Valentines’ and holi together with the Almighty? My entire love and devotions are there for Him thanking Him for his Kripa and Grace. How lucky could I be? I received the best of darshans and just stood there in His Sanmukh; feeling Shreeji’s Love as I was drenched with His vibrations; it is a very pure and sublime moment, nothing else is remembered; it is me and Shreeji playing holi and the rest of the world disappears for those few minutes.
It is in the Rajbhog Darshan that Shreeji plays holi.
Abil and Gulal colors are played with ShreejiBaba, and then as a prasad with the devotees. For me this was a second experience, to be able to be in His Presence for holi – Shreeji Baba was there, in full white dress, (He adornes a white Paushak all through the entire month) and the ‘Mukhiyajee is the lucky one who gets to touch ShreejiBaba.
He with his ‘Surya’ finger first touches ShreejiBaba with ‘kesuda’ water, slowly and gently, and his ‘bhao’ can be seen and felt – first on the forehead – Ajna (forehead) chakra – then Anahita (heart) chakra, and then all over, on the ‘Pichvai’ also. All through, the tenderness with which he touches ShreejiBaba is visible, trying best not to cause any disturbance to the high powers there.
We also were lucky to be sprinkled with color as a ‘Prasadi’ from ShreejiBaba.
The mukhiyaji carries the divine vibrations from the touch of Shreeji, and sprinkles them on all the devotees through the colours, who are lucky to be present for darshans. It is a very transcendental moment when the colours cover us with the touch of Shreeji.
This entire darshan takes nearly 30 minutes. One should not run away thinking about the clothes; in fact this drenching with colours in Shreeji’s court, within His Purest vibrations is one of the easiest way to enter higher purity.
Shreeji Himself plays colours for an entire month, so that all bhakts can awail of His purifying Blessings.
We do not shake off the sacred colours; it is collected in a packet to be distributed as Shreeji’s Blessings to close family.
After this is the ‘Aarti’….

I am recounting my two very special days at Nathdwara, when something very special and miraculous happened. These two very auspicious days were:
13 June 2008 – Ganga Dassera – Jyesth Sud Dasam; Chitra Nakshatra; Kanya Rashi (till
14.24) then Tula Rashi
14 June 2008 – Nirjala Ekadasi; Bhim Agyaras – Jyesth Sud Agyaras; Swati Nakshatra;
We were present for darshans on these two days at Nathdwara. They have been miraculous days.
On Ganga Dassera, there is a pond created before Thakurjee. Many herbal ingredients are added in this. Several lotus, fragrant flowers swim in the sacred waters. This is with the bhao that Gangaji who is considered the younger sister of Yamunaji comes to meet Shreeji. Both combine in this water to pay respects to Shreeji. Also the sewaks who cannot go till Haridwar can bathe in the Ganga here today.
The crowd is extreme today; bhakts from all villages around, as well as from far of cities are here today to participate in this sacred ritual.
Luckily, with Shreeji’s kripa, we were allowed to bathe in this pavitra (sacred) waters before the crowds came in. An unusual experience. Doing ‘dubki’ in the front of Shreeji with His Blessings flowing in the waters, granting higher purity; is an experience very difficult to describe in words. Many old sewaks are also there bathing in the waters.
I received Prasad of the lotus flowers from one of the sewaks; waited for nearly an hour before the Aarti was done.
From here we went to Navneet Priya’s mandir where a pond was also created, similar to the larger one. Here we cannot enter the waters. The entire Shringar was of lotus today.
The atmosphere in Shreeji’s Haveli and in Nathdwara town is of a huge mela.
The next day was a very auspicious day, it being Nirjala Ekadasi.
We did the three morning darshans in the regular way; though because of the extreme crowds it becomes difficult even to walk at a regular pace. It is incredible how so many bhakts are accommodated in the narrow lanes and the mandir parisar.
It was in Rajbhog Darshans that Shreeji did this unique leela. It was the senior mukhiyaji in sewa today. We stood praying and watching him complete the final Shringar for Shreeji.
Shreeji is offered His Flute and Chadi’s in this darshan. His three lotus are also placed on His arms, around His waist. Carefully, the mukhiyaji placed the two lotus; as he tried placing the third one, Shreeji refused.
Instantly I heard Shreeji’s sweet, melodious voice in my ears, “Arrey hatao; chubta hai”. (Take it away, it hurts). In that perfect moment saw the mukhiyaji remove the third lotus away from Shreeji. It was in perfect timing as I heard Shreeji saying these words in my ears, that the mukhiyaji also followed the same instructions. Shreeji made him realize that He would not accept this lotus today. When Shreeji refuses anything the mukhiaji doing the sewa has to bow and ask for forgiveness; which he did.
Heard Shreeji’s naughty laughter again, “Dekho maine nahin liya, usko bola hatao, ha, ha, ha; main aise hi karta hun”. (See I did not accept it, told him to remove it. Ha, ha, ha, I like to play in this way). I could not believe my eyes and ears. It was sakshat Darshans. Shreeji was here with us blessing us so closely. Looked around, but no one else seemed to hear or understand. What bliss, Shreeji played this mischief to show us His Presence.
We did the Aarti, bowed and left.
On the way back realized Shreeji’s Presence with us. “Main tumhare saath chalta hun. Aaj maaza aaya, voh mukhiya ko bevakuf banaya; ha, ha, ha. Mujhe kuch nahi chubta tha. Woh tou tumko khel dikhana chahata tha. Tum hamesha boltee ho na, darshan dene ke liye, tumhe aaj dikha diya. Mukhiya ki koi galti nahin thi, voh to mera khel tha tumhare liye. Maine maasti kari, tumhe anand aaya ke nahin? Chalo yeh mera khel ‘MERI’ website par likh dena. Koi puche to bolna, ‘Shreeji ka hukum’ hai.”
(I will come with you’ll. Had a lot of fun today, I fooled the mukhiya, ha,ha, ha. Nothing was pricking me. I only wanted to show you a khel. You always keep asking for darshans, I showed you my Play today. It was my khel for you today, the mukhiya did not commit any mistake. I did some maasti, did you enjoy in this? Ok, write about My Play on ‘MY’ website. If anyone asks why, say that it is Shreeji’s hukum (order).
Shreeji goes out of His way to play this leela for granting us His Darshans. Who says that Shreeji is not Present here?
“Yeh tumhara Prasad, aaj ke liye, ab tik, tik mat karna, bahut dimaag khati hai, ki darshan karao”; Shreeji said.
(This is your Prasad for today, hence forth stop all your tik, tik (pestering), you keep eating my brains and his, for My Darshans”).

A very good replica of Shreenathji Haveli jhanki has been made right here at Bombay.
It is in the VT, Fort area.
This has been done by “The Fort Vibhag Sarvajanik Ganesh Utsav Mandal” along with the help of some Vaishnav bhakts.
Darshans will be there till 22nd September 2010-Wednesday when the Ganpati visarjan will take place.
Each day there is a different Manorath.
This is a very good opportunity to have beautiful darshans, right in our city; a lot of effort has been made to perfect the darshan jhankis. It is also possible to take pictures here, which of course can never happen at Nathdwara Haveli.
I share here some pictures of the darshans which I was lucky to get; with my Shreeji’s kripa.
Shreeji Ki Jai Ho!!

Darshan of ShreeNathji at Nathdwara
This is the full swarup ’Shringar’ darshan of ShreeNathji.
A POEM FOR MY DEAREST DIVINE SHREENATHJI
Some words in love for my ShreeNathji – my ShreeKrishn;
with whose blessings and grace;
in whose Bhao and Mahabhao I have realized my divine nature; my reality.
“YOU are the dawn of everyday to me, the Hope that sees me through,
The Light that guides the way for me, the Love that’s always true –
YOU are the Joy that fills the heart in me
The BLISS that completes the dreams in me.
YOU are the reason for my tomorrows
YOU are the reason for today
YOU are the reason for my life’s living
YOU are the reason for my soul’s shinning.
YOUR love, friendship, grace
Has shown a new dimension -
I had never thought
I’d attain such contentment.
I want to be possessed by YOU.
I want to belong to YOU.
In my deepest thoughts
I want to hold on to “YOU”.
In total surrender and Bhakti
