ShreeNathji-MahaPrabhuji 9th Baithakji at Radha Kund, Shri Govardhan:
At Radha kund there are Baithaks: Shri Vallab Acharya, His son Shri Vitthalnathji Gusainji, His son, Shri Gokulnathji. Very rare to find all the there baithaks at one place.
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 9th Baithak of Mahaprabhuji, which is located at Radha Kund at Shri Govardhan, Mathura.
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.
(Details of his life and teachings can be read on my website:
There are two kunds (lakes) here. Radha Kund and Krushna Kund.
Radha dug out her kund (lake) with her fingernails (Radha Kund). Krishna dug his kund (lake) with his flute. They are both internally connected. There are additional eight kunds of eight sakhis (friends of Radha) situated around here.
Shri Mahaprabhuji had seen Shri Radha and Krishna walking hand in hand into the Goverdhan mountain. Shri Mahaprabhuji approached the divine couple. He was ordered to accompany them.
Three days later he returned to this place and found his disciples in unconscious state. He sprinkled holy water all over his disciples and they all gained consciousness.
