Details of ShreeNathji Mukharvind at Jatipura, Shri Govardhan

Shreeji lives in Vraj at Mathura on Giriraj Govardhan. His Mukharvind mandir is at the base Girirajji, the place of His Pragatya.

This Govardhan Shila is also known as the Shringar Sthali – The Mukharvind of Giriraj Govardhan; according to the Vallabh Sampraday. Annakut Pujan is held here every year. Hundreds of bhakts visit daily and worship with milk and flowers etc. Many begin their parikrama of Giriraj Govardhan from this point.

This Sthal is very very Alive with the Divine vibrations and energy.

Shreeji does Shayan here for six months every year. (Vasant Panchmi to Dassehra).

After the Sandhya Aarti at His Nathdwara Mandir, He comes at the Mukharvind Mandir on Shri Govardhan to give Shayan Darshans. During this period, His Presence is very Live and can be felt by the receptive bhakts; so once the Shringar is complete no photography is allowed. Before this photographs can be taken.

The Mukharvind of Shreeji is decorated and worshipped every evening. It is believed to be Alive with His presence.

Jatipura was originally known as Yatipura. Shri Vallabh Achary lived on this side of Girirajji as he found it easier to climb up for Shreeji’ seva. In that time period it wa like a jungle, only the Anyor side was inhabited with few villages. Another name for a sadhu or sant is ‘Yati’, and anyone looking for Shri Vallabh was directed here, and people soon began calling it the place where the ‘Yati’ resides; hence the name Jatipura. In Vraj bhasha ‘Y’ is pronounced as ‘J’.

The 14th Baithakji is located in front of the Mukharvind. It was from here that Shri Vallabh narrated the Bhagwadji to Girirajji.

Sthapan of Shreeji Mukharvind is just 100-150 year ago (as per the sevaks).

Jai Shreeji!

ShreeNathji Haveli श्रीनाथजी हवेली

(This post is about ShreeNathji Haveli at Nathdwara. It is a dialogue between Thakurjee ShreeNathji and this humble bhakt Abha Shahra, where He describes the facts which have caused Him to be upset and sad. Similar to the other Live interactions,this too is a divine writing)

श्रीनाथजी आज ग़ुस्से में बहुत सी शिकायत करते हैं.. श्रीजी, “देख, देख, मेरी हवेली की क्या हालत करी है इन लोगों ने. तोड़ फोड़ के रख दिया है, आभा शाहरा श्यामॉ..”
ShreeNathji – His “LIVE” interactions varta in today’s time period.

नवरात्रि चल रही है. श्रीनाथजी दर्शन के लिए हम नाथद्वारा आए हैं.

और जैसे की हमारा नियम है, सुबह शंखनाद के पहले श्रीजी के दरवाज़े के बाहर खड़े होते हैं. हम सुबह ४.१५ बजे मंगला दर्शन के लिए पीछे के द्वार ‘प्रीतम पोली’ के बाहर खड़े हैं.


श्रीजी हमारे साथ हैं और यहीं खड़े हैं, “देख, देख, मेरी हवेली की क्या हालत करी है इन लोगों ने. तोड़ फोड़ के रख दिया है. अंदर और बाहर से ठीक करने के नाम पे सब तोड़ दिया, फिर ऐसे ही छोड़ दिया. आभा शाहरा श्यामॉ, बाद में तेरा फ़ोन लेकर आना और दो चार फ़ोटू लेकर छाप देना. लिखना की श्रीजी बहुत नाराज़ हैं, क्या मालूम कब किसको सज़ा देंगे.”


“मैं नाथद्वारा छोड़कर निकलने वाला तो हूँ, मैंने बहुत दया दिखा के इतने समय से माफ़ करता रहा. लेकिन यह लोग समझने को तय्यार ही नहीं है. देश के बाहर जाकर पेंसिलवेनिया (Pensilvania) जैसी जगहों में बड़ी बड़ी हवेली बना रहे हैं ख़ुद के लिए और यहाँ जिस जगह “मैं” ख़ुद रहता हूँ उसे तोड़ फोड़ कर रख दिया है”.

(बहुत समय से यहाँ के अधिकारियों ने हवेली की दीवार तोड़ कर रखी है, आगे के द्वार पर और यहाँ पीछे के द्वार पर भी. यहाँ से अन्दर भी जब जाते हैं, तो पूरा रास्ता टूटा हुआ है, ऐसा लगता है हमेशा मुझे की यहाँ श्रीजी की किसी को फ़िक्र ही नहीं है. लोगों ने इसी बाहर की दीवार पर पान के छींटे भी थूके हैं.

कभी भी इस दीवार या दरवाज़े की सफ़ाई नहीं होती है. पुरानी सुखी माला यूँ ही टँगी हुई हैं. एक बहुत बड़ी बिल्डिंग हवेली से लगकर बना रहे हैं, लेकिन ना वो पूर्ण हुई, ना श्रीनाथजी की हवेली की मरम्मत करी गयी.

ईश्वर, ठाकुरजी का जहाँ साक्षात निवास है, मेरे लिए यह देखना हर बार, एक बहुत ही दुखदायक नज़ारा है.

ख़ुदगर्ज़ी ने सबकी आँख पर यह कैसा लालच का पर्दा डाल दिया है?

तिलकायत हों, बालक हों, सेवक हों, भक्त हों, या रक्षक हों, सभी श्रीजी को लूटने पर तुले हैं, यह सच्चाई बहुत ही अच्छी तरह बार बार श्रीनाथजी ठाकुरजी हमें अक्सर बताते है).


श्रीजी आगे कहते हैं, “और तूने भी देखा होगा, अंदर मेरे सेवक लोग जो “मेरा” काम करते हैं, कैसे हर समय अपने मुँह में गुटका और तम्बाकू चबाते हैं. ऐसे कोई सेवा करता है क्या? मंदिर के अधिकारी और बावाश्री भी अनदेखा करते हैं. पवित्रता कहाँ है”?

श्रीजी आदेश देते हैं, “आभा शाहरा श्यामॉ, तू जब मेरी हवेली के दरवाज़े का फ़ोटू लेगी तो साथ में मेरे दर्शन समय के बोर्ड का भी लेना. देख, मुझे इन लोगों ने बाँध दिया समय के लिए. मेरे गुसाँईजी ने मेरी सुविधा के लिए हमेशा १५ मिनट का समय रखा था, दर्शन खुलने में. इसलिए की कभी भी मैं अगर बाहर घूमने निकल गया तो मुझे १५ मिनट का समय मिले मंदिर वापस आने के लिए. अब मैं क्या करूँगा”?
( दर्शन के समय हमेशा से १५ मिनट के दायरे में होते थे, जैसे की; ५-५.१५, ७.१५-७.३०, ३.३०-३-४५. कभी भी एक बँधा समय नहीं होता था. जो नाथद्वारा जाते रहते हैं, उन्हें यह मालूम होना चाहिए. श्रीजी को हमेशा से १५ मिनट का समय दिया जाता है मंदिर वापस पधारने के लिए. यह नियम श्री गुसाँई जी ने शुरू करा था, श्रीजी की सुविधा के लिए. भाव है की अगर श्रीजी कहीं खेलने गए हों तो उन्हें श्रम ना हो भाग कर मंदिर वापिस आने के लिए, श्रीनाथजी प्राकट्य वार्ता में इस का ज़िक्र आता है).


आज्ञा अनुसार मैंने फ़ोटो ले लिए. फिर आगे मुख्य द्वार, लाल दरवाज़े पर भी गए, वहाँ भी बोर्ड पर दर्शन समय बाँध दिया था. और यहाँ भी परिसर कितनी ख़राब हालत में है, यह सभी भक्त जानते हैं.

कुछ फ़ोटो इस पोस्ट के साथ रखी हैं, देखिए, सोचिए, समझने की कोशिश करिए.
हम लोग क्या वाक़ई में श्रीनाथजी की भक्ति और प्रेम करते हैं, या फिर सिर्फ़ अपनी ज़रूरत पूरी करने ठाकुरजी के मंदिर तक जाते हैं?

श्रीजी की सेवा में, उनकी आज्ञा से,

आभा शाहरा श्यामॉ

Imagine the most powerful divine Shakti SHREENATHJI “Lives” here. WHERE ARE THE AUTHORITIES WHO ARE SUPPOSED TO TAKE CARE OF THE HAVELI AND SHREENATHJI WHOM THE ENTIRE NATHDWARA BELONGS TO.

What would the earliest sevaks Shri Vallabh Acharya and Shri Gusainji have done to these sevaks who do seva with such impure bhao?

Jai Shree Krishn 🙏

ShreeNathji Mandir on Shri Govardhan: A Panoramic view.

Darshans here are of this ShreeNathji Chavi. The original Murti is now at Nathdwara Haveli. The journey to Mewar, as desired by Thakurjee, began in 1669 AD, on Asadh Sud Punam on Friday, during the last 3 hours of the night. ShreeNathji with all His sewaks arrived in Sinhad (Nathdwara) in 1672 AD, on Falgun Vad Satam on Saturday.

Many bhakts are not able to get these darshans, as they are unable to climb up; either because of bad health, old age, or the belief that one should not give shram to Shri Girirajji by climbing on Him. Please enjoy these Darshans.

Few details about this sacred mandir:

In 1499 AD, ShreeNathji gives hukum in a dream to Puranmall Kshtri. “Come to Vraj Mandal and build a large mandir for me”. So Puranmall sold all his property and came to Shri Govardhan at Vraj. He asked the Vrajvasi the where about of Shree Dev Daman.

Puranmall was very happy to do the darshans, after which he meets Shri Vallabh Acharya and narrates the dream. “I have sold everything that I possessed and come here with all my wealth to build the mandir as per Shreeji’s hukum”.

Shri Maha Prabhuji grants permission for building. Purnmall then requests Shri Giiriraj that there will be a lot of disturbance in building the mandir, I need your permission. Giriraj Govardhan says, “ShreeNathji will live in my heart, so all the digging work etc will not cause any parishram to me, please go ahead and start the work”.

7

The mandir foundation was laid in the year 1499 AD, Vaishak Sud 3, in Rohini Nakshatra.

5a

All of Puranmall’s wealth was soon exhausted. He went south again to work and earn money so that the mandir could be completed. Shreeji refused to accept this sewa from any other bhakt and waited for 20 years, till Puranmall could complete the mandir!

Till then Shreeji stayed in a small mandir. These 20 years, Ramdas Chauvan Rajput did the sewa. Thus from 1488 AD till 1519 AD, Shreeji did His Leela from this small mandir.

10

The architect Hiramani lived in Agra. As per hukum in his dream, he came to Vraj and met Shri Vallabh Acharya. Shri Vallabh Acharya gave him the permission and instructed him to start drawing the plan on paper. He drew the plan of a mandir without a shikhar. But as soon as he finished drawing the plan it would change to a drawing of a mandir with a shikhar. This happened three times, so Shri Maha Prabhuji understood that it was Shreeji’s desire to stay in a mandir with a shikhar.

14

He tells Damodardas, “Since ShreeNathji wishes to stay in a mandir with a shikhar, it means He will stay in Shri Govardhan for many years. Then there will be attack by the Mughals, after which Shreeji will move to some other part of the country. He will stay here also for several years, after which He will move back to Vraj.

10a

New mandir Paat Utsav

Once this new mandir was ready, Shre Maha Prabhuji reached Vraj after completing parikrama of the country. Shreeji was established in His new mandir in 1519 AD; Vaishak Sud Teej; on Akha Teej. This day is also called the Paat Utsav of ShreeNathji.

12

This is the ancient mandir built by Shri Puranmall. It has been restored twice since.

http://www.shreenathjibhakti.org/brief_sketch_vallabhacharya.htm

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.

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.

1st November 2006

It is my child’s sports day today.
She has always been a very good athlete, and is excited, though a little nervous. She has to leave very early for the sports ground. Before leaving she prays to ShreeNathji for His blessings. (Shreeji’s large Chavi is in our living room and we pass it always when leaving the house).

As I am not going with her, I call my dear close friend, Millie who would be there at the sports ground, and request her to keep me posted about happenings at the races. Few hours into the event I receive her call, saying that my child has won gold in all the events. She won five gold medals in athletics this year.

As the varta goes:

A day earlier to the sports day, I had called up my Gurushree, Shri Sudhirbhai, asking for blessings for my child; so now I call up to inform him about her accomplishments.

Gurushree, is delighted and I hear him thanking ShreeNathji also.

Later that same night I have this very incredible vivid conversation with ShreeNathji Himself who describes His version of the sports event!

Writing it exactly as it went:

श्रीजी मुझसे कहेते हैं, “कल जब तुम सुधीर से फ़ोन पर बात कर रही थी मैं सुधीर के पास ही था. मैंने उसको पूछा की ये स्पोर्ट्स डे क्या होता है? आभा क्या बात कर रही है?
Shreeji tells me, “Yesterday, when you were talking to Sudhir on the phone, I was there with him. I asked him what sports day means. What is Abha talking about?

श्रीजी आगे बताते हैं, “तो सुधीर ने मुझे समझाया की स्कूल के बच्चों की प्रतियोगिता होती है, और मुझसे पूछा की आप वहां जाकर देखना चाहते हैं? मैंने हाँ करी.
Shreeji continues, “Sudhir explained to Me that it is a school competition, and asked Me if I wished to go there and see how it happens. I said yes to him”.

श्रीजी- “अरे, इसने (सुधीर) बोला तो मैं वहां गया. नहीं तो मैं ऐसे कहीं किसी के साथ नहीं जाता”.
Shreeji- “Arrey, Sudhir told me to go, that is why I went there. Other wise I never go any where with anyone like this.

श्रीजी- “फिर समस्या हुई की मुझे कैसे पता चलेगा कहाँ जाना है? सुधीर ने सुझाव दिया की सुबह जल्दी आभा के यहाँ चले जाना और बच्ची के साथ में ही स्पोर्ट्स ग्राउंड चले जाना”.
Shreeji- “Then rose the problem of how will I know where to go? Sudhir guided Me saying that I should go early to Abha’s house. From there I can go with her child to the sports ground.

श्रीजी आगे बताते हैं, “इसलिए मैं सुबह ६ बजे से तेरे यहाँ आ गया था; मेरी बाहर वाली छवि मैं बैठ गया. सुबह तैयार होकर तेरी बच्ची मेरे पास आई प्रणाम करने और आशीर्वाद के लिए”.
“फिर जब देखा की वोह निकल रही है, जल्दी से भागा और उसके साथ गाडी में बैठ गया. क्यों की मालूम नहीं था की कहाँ जाना है”.
Shreeji continues, “So early morning at 6 I reached your house and sat down in My Chavi which is outside in the hall. Your child came to Me to do her pranam and for blessings, before she left. As soon as I saw her leave, I also ran and sat in the car with her; as I did not know where to go.

श्रीजी- “स्पोर्ट्स मैदान में, मैं उसके पीछे खड़ा हो गया, क्योंकि मालुम ही नहीं था की क्या करना है”. “फिर सब भागने लगे, और तेरी बच्ची भी तेज़ी से भागी. मैं तो खड़ा ही रह गया.वोह पहले नंबर पर आई, और खूब जोर से ताली बजी;
Shreeji- “At the sports ground I stood behind her, as I just did not know what to do”. “Then suddenly all began to run and your child also ran fast. I was just left standing there alone. She came first and all clapped loudly for her.

श्रीजी थोड़ी सी उदास आवाज़ में आगे बताते हैं, “लेकिन मुझे कोई नहीं देख रहा था. मैं खड़ा रहा, समझ में नहीं आया क्या करूँ. लेकिन मज़ा आया. बहुत धूप थी, और गर्मी भी.
Shreeji continues a little sadly, “But no one was looking at Me. I just stood there as I did not understand what to do.
It was a lot of fun. But it was very sunny and hot.

श्रीजी- “थोड़ी थोड़ी देर में मैं तेरी बच्ची का चेहरा देख लेता था, मैं सही जगह पर ही हूँ न.
वहाँ कई बच्चे कागज़ खोल कर कुछ खा रहे थे, वो क्या होता है?
Shreeji- “Every few minutes, I would look at your child’s face; and made sure that I am yet in the right place. Many children were eating something from a paper packet, what was that?”

आभा- “श्रीजी, वो सैंडविच होगा, सब बच्चे पसंद करते हैं”.
Abha- “Shreeji, that must be a sandwich. Most of the children enjoy eating that.

आभा- “श्रीजी यह तो बताइये की आपको कैसा लगा? आशा है की स्पोर्ट्स डे में आपको मजा आई. आपने कभी ऐसा देखा ही नहीं होगा”.
Abha- “Shreeji, how did You like being there, hope you enjoyed the Sports day and had fun. I am sure You must have never seen anything like this before”.

श्रीजी शिकायत के लहजे में, “अरे, सब कितनी आवाज़ करते हैं! बहुत गर्मी भी थी वहां. वोह लोग ऐ.सी (AC)रूम में क्यों नहीं भागते हैं?
Shreeji in a complaing tone, “Arrey, these children make so much noise! It also became very hot. Why don’t these children run in an AC room?”

मुझे हँसी आती है. “श्रीजी इसलिए की बहुत बच्चे होते हैं इतना बड़ा कमरा कहाँ से लाएँगे”.
I burst in laughter. “Shreeji, maybe because there are a lot of children. It is not possible to get such a large room for sports events”.

श्रीजी नटखट आवाज़ में कहते हैं, “हाँ.. फिर तो उनको एक छोटा ए.सी (AC) साथ लेकर दौड़ना चाहिए, अपने अपने सर के ऊपर. हा हा हा. लेकिन वोह चलेगा कैसे”.
और यह देखो, धूप में मैं कितना काला हो गया”. श्रीजी मजाक में कहते हैं.
Shreeji continues talking in His naughty tone, “Han.. But then they should all run with a small AC fitted on their head. Ha Ha, but then how will the AC work”.
Also just see, how black and dark I have become in the sun..” Shreeji jokes.

श्रीजी आगे कहते हैं, “बहुत बच्चे थे, मुझे आनंद आया. पहले मैंने सोचा की तेरी बच्ची को उठा कर जल्दी से आगे रख दूँ, पर सुधीर की कही हुई बात याद आ गयी। उसने बोला था, ‘श्रीजी कोई मस्ती नहीं करना वहाँ पर. सब लोग घबरा जायेंगे. कुछ नुक्सान भी नहीं होना चाहिए. फिर जब मन करे, आप वापस आ जाना’.
Shreeji continues with His dialogue, “There were a lot of children, I enjoyed Myself. Initially I had thought of lifting your child and putting her directly on the finish line. But I remembered Sudhir’s warning. He had told Me not to do any mischief and just watch. Sudhir had explained that I should not cause any problem, as it could frighten the people present there. And whenever I feel like it, I could leave and go back”.

My child also told me later. “I felt very confident and there was no exhaustion after running the races. There was no negative thought in my mind”. (She had won gold in all the three running events).
I explained God’s blessings to her, her own faith in Shreeji, and His Presence in our house. We both did a dhoop for Shreeji and thanked Him for His blessings.

The same day later Millie too told me that as she entered the sports ground, she smelt the fragrance of Nathdwara Prasad. She looked around her, but there was no tree or foliage from which the fragrance could come. It all felt very divine. While returning also, at the same point; she could smell the Nathdwara Prasad fragrance again.
This might be because of ShreeNathji’s Live Presence as Lalan in that area. And Millie is His bhakt.

Some happenings are un explainable and incredibly divine in nature. They cannot be explained in worldly language and can be understood and accepted only in faith and bhakti.

(For those who have never eaten the prasad from Nathdwara, Shreeji’s prasad has the typical fragrance of kapur( camphor) and some added spices which is very typical of the Nathdwara Haveli prasad).

It is always kripa of God and Guru, that one can be fortunate enough to be a nimit for such divine interactions.

My pranam to my Gurushree and MahaGurushree, I am humbled by this divyata in my life and the divine love and kripa that I am showered with!

Jai Shreeji
Jai Shree Radhe Krishn!

10th BAITHAK AT MANSI GANGA- SHRI GOVARDHAN

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

This Baithakji is located at the foothills of Shri Govardhan.

Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhuji used to worship in the nearby area. Knowing that Shri Mahaprabhuji had arrived in the area, he approached him. Mansi Ganga had told Him that Shri Mahaprabhuji will be coming there and will fulfill all his desires. Then Mahaprabhuji sprinkled water into the eyes of Shri Krishna Chaitanya as well as over all the Vaishnavs around him. They all received spiritual insight and had the vision of the divine form of Mansi Ganga as being consisting of only milk. Everyone bathed in the divine lake. Soon after, the divine vision vanished.

Chakleshwar Mahadev (Shiva), daily came to listen to  Shri Mahaprabhuji.

It was here that a famous dialogue between Shri Mahaprabhuji and Shri Krishna Chaitanya took place. Shri Krishna Chaitanya said that in Kaliyug chanting of Lord’s name even for a moment will give you liberation. Shri Mahaprabhuji had a different view. He said that the Kaliyug is so bad that even if you miss to recite Lord’s name for a moment, you won’t be liberated.

Shri Gusainji Baithakji at Shyam Dhak-Vraj Mandal

Shri Gusainji Baithakji at Shyam Dhak, Shri Govardhan, Mathura.

This sthal is situated about 2 km away from Puchri ka lota mandir on Shri Govardhan.

It is called Kadamb Khadi, because it is located on a forest of Kadamb trees. (Though today, unfortunately only a few trees are left).

Here ShreeNathji played with His gwal bal sakhas.

Baithakji located in a very scheduled area, peaceful and quiet

ShreeNathji-Vallabhacharya Baithakji 8 at BahulaVan

Shri Bahulavan Baithakji Number 8

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 8th  Baithak of Mahaprabhuji, located at Bahula Van, Vraj Mandal.

The Mukhiyaji had asked us not to take photos of the darshans, so I did not.

These three photos that you see below, I have found on the internet, hence uploaded them for the bhakts. Their link is given at the bottom of this post.

8th Baithakji at BahulaVan

bahulavan-ki-bethak-250x250

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

At Bahulavan, Shri Mahaprabhuji stayed three days giving discourses on the Srimad Bagavatam

This is the fourth Van of the Vraj area, in the village of Bathi.

Krishn Kund is also located here

Here there are temples of Bahulabihariji and Bahula cow.

A story of Bahula cow can be found in Padma Puran:

Once Dharmaraja, in the form of a lion, visited this jungle to kill cows. All the cows except Bahula had escaped at the sight of this lion. Lion wanted to kill Bahula. She requested him to wait till she can go and feed her child. She promised him to return after that. She did return. Impressed with her honesty and truthfulness, lion revealed his true identity of Dharmaraja. When the cow died the people of this village started worshipping her by installing a stone statue of this cow.

The Muslim King of this area prohibited them from worshipping this cow. The king proclaimed that worship could only be commenced when the cow would actually eat grass. During his visit to this place, Shri Mahaprabhuji was informed about this prohibition. Shri Mahaprabhuji invited the king and showed to him the stone Bahula cow partaking of the offered grass. The king was amazed and became disciple of Shri Mahaprabhuji. In his next life this king was born as Meha Dhemar.

Amongst the Vraj’s 12 ‘ Vans’, this ‘ Van’ ranks fourth. Under the tree of ‘ Vadh’, this Baithakji is situated. Also beside it a cow named ‘ Bahula’ rests.

In this Baithakji, Vraj’s Muslim Suba was shown an astonishing miracle by Shri Mahaprabhuji.
