. . from my website for Shreeji:
. . . . . .Shreeji travels from Nathdwara to Mathura and back, spending the night any where He wishes to. In fact I feel at times, maybe Shreeji might actually want a weekly holiday like the rest of us; as He does His karma of standing and giving Darshans all through 24|7.
We should also think to provide a free day for Him, where He will not be bound by the rules of the mandir? Could it not be a reality that Shreeji Himself is tired standing all through so many years; year after year, month after month, week after week, day after day.
When He lives there at the Haveli, waiting for His devotees, today wouldn’t He be truly sad that except a couple of bhakts, there is no one truly interested in getting to know where He truly is; what He truly wants; He must be so sad that all come only for fulfillment of worldly desires; and no one has enough bhao to want to spend time playing with Him for His happiness.
Once, when in Nathdwara the above thoughts were in my mind. I was very disturbed about the shram (tiredness) that Shreeji may experience. Also some facts from gurushree kept on repeating in my mind, about how purity of bhao has deteriorated in majority. I wondered how sad Shreeji must be with this loss of devotion and the purity in us humans today; which He had experienced earlier in His Govardhan stay; the truth is there as history, how much Shreeji enjoyed playing Live with His sakhas and sakhis.
Suddenly I heard His sweet and melodious voice echoing inside, complaining, “Yeh mukhiya sirf eak phirkee ghumaata rehata hai since soooo many years; main to boar ho gaya. Main bhaag jaata hun. Kuch naya nahin soachte. Mujhe lalach de kar kaam karvatee hain. Eak laddoo jiyada dekar bolte hain mera kaam kaaro. Koi mere saath khelne to nahin aata”. (Since sooooo many years this mukhiya only rotates a phirkee. I have become very bored. I run away from here. They do not think of anything new. All give me lalach (temptation) to make me do their work. They give me an extra ladoo and ask me to do their work. No one comes to play with me any more).
At this I replied, “Shreeji, if You wish I could be Your friend. I will always play whenever You want; if You wish to accept me as a friend.” I was thrilled to receive an answer, immediately, “OK, tum meri best friend ho, main tumhare saath khelne aaunga”. (Ok, you are my best friend, I will come to play with you).
He could actually want to move away and be else where, may be He actually runs away from the mandir after the few moments when He has to stand for giving darshans; with a few true devotees who keep total love and devotion- bhao for Him.
In fact you will never truly know where He truly is today; as none is close enough to Him.
