ShreeNathji-MahaPrabhuji Baithakji at GaharVan

ShreeNathji-MahaPrabhuji 17th Baaithakji at GaharVan:

Baithaks in Pushtimarg religion are holy places where Shri Vallabhacharya, the founder of Pushtimarg, 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.


Here are some pictures displayed from my visit to the 17th Baithak of Mahaprabhuji, located Gahavar Van at Mathura, Vraj Mandal








Bethakji - 17


Gahavarvan is an area with deep forests.

The famous story of Cobra and Ants is associated with this place.

Once Shri Mahaprabhuji was taking a walk with his disciples and saw a cobra with thousands of ants biting it. Shri Mahaprabhuji gave the following explanation:

Cobra-snake was a Guru in Vrindavan in its past life, who made disciples for money, did not worship the Lord and lived a selfish life. These ants were all its disciples. They are taking revenge in this life for ruining their previous lives by making them followers and not guiding them properly.

Shri Mahaprabhuji threw some sacred water over the snake and ants. They all became liberated and went to heaven in a celestial chariots.
