ShreeNathji-Vallabhacharya 55 Baithakji at Morbi

*************************************************************************************************

Baithaks in Pushtimarg religion are holy places where Shri Vallabhacharya, the founder of Pushtimarg, and close bhakt and sewak of ShreeNathji, narrated the Holy Bhagvad Katha. They are total 84 in number and spread all over the country. Mahaprabhuji had circled the whole of India three times and done sthapna of these various Baithaks.

Each Baithak has its own particular Charitra (description).

Baithaks are holy places where there is no Idol or Chitra (Picture); sewa is done of Gaddi (Seating).

Baithaks are a very important pilgrim place for all Pushtimarg bhakts, as Shri Vallabhacharya is their primary Guru.

Shri Vallabhacharya was born in the VS 1535 or AD1478. It was on Vaishak Vad Giyaras (11th) in Vikram Samvat 1535, or AD 1478; in Satbhisha Nakshatra on a Thursday; during the Abhijit mahurat, 12.40-1.00 in the afternoon; when ShreeNathji’s Lotus Face Appeared from Govardhan to give His divya Darshan to the lucky people of the village; According to Shree Krishn’s desire, on the same day but in the Abhijit mahurat, 12.40-1.00 at night, Shree Vallabhacharya also appeared at Champaran in a ring of fire.

55th  BAITHAKJI  at MORBI

(This detail of the original varta about this Baithakji is taken from website: http://www.vallabhkankroli.org/)

 Shri Vallabhacharya Mahaprabhuji’s baithak is located on the bank of Krishna Lake near Machhu River. The city was established by a King Mayurdhwaja  (Satyawadi). Shri Krishna and Arjun blessed the banks of this lake.

Once, two Brahmins Bala and V(B)ada came to have Shri Mahaprabhuji’s sight (Darshan). They realized the divinity in Him and requested, We have been lost in this worldly ocean, now shower your grace over us.

Shri Mahaprabhuji accepted them as his disciples. After initiation (Brahm Sambandh) Shri Mahaprabhuji taught them about the Path of Grace and told them tom worship Shri Nathaji as Shri Krishna. Bala’s name was changed to Balkrushnadas and  V(B)ada’s name was changed to Badrayandas. Their complete stories are found in the 84 Vaishnava’s accounts.

There was a heavy storm in Morbi on 11 August 1979. thousands of people lost their lives. Billion dollars worth property was destroyed. Goswami Pujya Indirabetiji and other Acharyas of Pushti marg had helped in reestablishing the city. Miraculously  The Baithakji was intact.
