Kusum Sarovar,Shri Govardhan

 

Kusum Sarovar, a beautiful sandstone monument, is a 25-minute walk from Radha Kund. Kusum means “flower,” and here the gopis would pick flowers for Shree Krishn.

The ghats at this kund and the buildings above the kund were built by Jawahir Singh, the king of Bharatpur around 1764, in honor of his father Raja Surajmul.

Surajmul attacked the Mughal King of Delhi and was killed in the battle.

His son Jawahir Singh then attacked Delhi and killed the Mughal king.

मेरे श्रीनाथजी ठाकुरजी की जय !
(The sewaks here have stopped people from recording at the Mukharwind since the past few months. This video is from an earlier period when recording was permitted.
So please help to spread the Arti darshans to all Vaishnavs)

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!

The Divine only wants love..

 

🎼 “मन तडपत हरी दर्शन को आज” “Man tadpat Hari Darshan Ko Aaj”..

भजन हिंदी फ़िल्म का है; सुनिए समझिए; (This post is about a Hindi bhajan, listen to it and try to understand two facts)

दो बातें समझनी हैं;

१ – गुरु के बिना प्रभु तक पहुँचना बहुत ही कठिन है,

(Without the Sadguru, it is very difficult to reach and merge with God)

२ – प्रभु को पाने के लिए सिर्फ़ और सिर्फ़ भाव शुद्धि चाहिए..और गुरु की कृपा ..

(To merge with the divine shakti, the only requirement is purity of bhao..and the Sadgurus kripa. 

Humanity is important for closeness with the divine. Caste does not matter in bhakti)

श्री कृष्ण और श्रीनाथजी के बहुत मुसलमान भक्त थे जिनको ठाकुरजी के साक्षात्कार भी हुए.

ईश्वर नहीं देखते की हिन्दू है या मुसलमान; जो भाव से पुकारता है उसके हो जाते हैं.

(Shree RadhaKrishn, ShreeNathji had several Muslim bhakts; many of them had Their sakshatkar too; God did not see if the bhakt was a Hindu or a Muslim, He only and only, felt the purity of the soul calling out to Him in devotion)

Below is a beautiful Hindi devotional bhajan. It is shown how the entire team was Muslim, yet there was immense devotion present in all the group who made this bhajan.

It is an audio clip describing a beautiful bhajan…..Naushad Ali speaks about the making of this  devotional song 🎼where the entire team was Muslim singing a Hindu bhajan in complete devotion.”

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 “Live Varta” at His Paat utsav

 ShreeNathji “Live Varta” at Paat utsav:

ShreeNathji Paat Utsav at Vrindavan, Vraj Mandal “Shreeji Nij Niwas”, Vrindavan 

16th February, 2016; Magh Sud Naum, SV 2072

.. As Shreeji told me later,

“मैं तेरे माथे पर आकर बैठ गया था, सुधीर ने छूट दी थी, की श्रीजी जो दर्शन देने हैं आपको, आज सभी को दे दो. मैं पूरे रूम में भाग रहा था, एक बार तेरी फ़्रेंड से टकरा भी गया था, उसको बोला जाग, जाग.

स्वस्तिक को सुधीर ने मेरे कपड़े से ढाक कर रखा था, जब कपड़ा उठाता था, तो मैं तेरे माथे पर से स्वस्तिक में कूद जाता था. और फुलों के बीच भागता था, किसी किसी का मेरा दर्शन एक छोटी लौ के रूप में हुआ होगा. फिर वापस तेरे माथे पर आकर आराम करता था. इसलिए मैं तुझे नहीं दिखता था, मैं तो तेरे ही माथे पर बैठा था, तुझे कैसे दिखूँगा हा हा हा”..

“Shreeji Nij Niwas”, THE most sacred place.

Jai Shree Krishn to all readers. This seems like a long post, but do spend some time reading it, as it is a unique writing on the personal experiences of bhakts about ShreeNathji divine play with them. ShreeNathji does His leela similar to the 84 Vaishnavas, 252 Vaishnav ki varta, even today in our world. Thoughts as comments are very welcome.

Do share and spread the darshans. Thank you.

This post is in continuation from the post of 19 February 2016.

These are the personal experiences of people, written and expressed in their own words. 

As you read ahead, you will notice few things;

What they experienced when listening to the music with eyes shut ,

What each one saw in the Swastik darshans,

The different darshans each one had on my forehead.

This room transformed to the most sacred place where ShreeNathji was fully Present and made us all a part of His divine Play. All the while Gurushree was in full control of the happenings.

Gurushree, Abha, Ritesh; A selfie after we had completed our pujans

As Shreeji told me later, 

“मैं तेरे माथे पर आकर बैठ गया था, सुधीर ने छूट दी थी, की श्रीजी जो दर्शन देने हैं आपको, आज सभी को दे दो. मैं पूरे रूम में भाग रहा था, एक बार तेरी फ़्रेंड से टकरा भी गया था, उसको बोला जाग, जाग.

“Shreeji Paat”; Shri Yamunaji in the background, The flower Swastik darshans are also visible, Pujan complete.

So here are the experiences all had, written in their own words:

My own experience: 

In the fifteen minutes as per Gurushree’s instructions, when each one was viewing my forehead, I had this incredible experience.

As the sacred formations started on my forehead, I felt my spine come alive. Extraordinary energy flow happened from the base to my forehead.

I felt shivers along the entire spine.

Uncontrollable tears flowed on my face for the entire time period.

Incredible feeling of humility entered me, as I felt myself become one with Shree Thakurjee.

I felt enveloped in a fantastic feeling of devotion and bhao.

Suganchandji Kochar:

१६.०२.२०१६ को श्रीजी के निज निवास में नियम पूर्वक सजावट में प्रवेश करते ही मन प्रसन्न हुवा. दीवाल पे विविध लीला के दर्शन हुए.

स्वयं श्रीनाथजी स्वस्तिक के फूल में बाल स्वरूप प्रगट होकर दर्शन पाकर हम धन्य हो गए.

स्वस्तिक के दर्शन में फूल हिल रहे है ऐसा महसूस हुवा.

ऐसी श्रीनाथजी की कृपा हमेशा बनी रहे.

तथा आभा जी के मुख पर स्वयं श्री कृष्ण भगवान के बाल स्वरूप में दर्शन की अनुभूति हुई.

हम अपने आज की अनुभूति से धन्य हुए.

Millie Kirpalani:

I was so excited to visit Shreeji Nij Nivas and experience HIS energies. I remember waiting outside in the corridor for my turn – my heart was beating so fast my body was trembling I could not contain my excitement and nervousness at the same time. Could not believe I was one of the few chosen ones to witness this and to be actually present in HIS rest house .Thank you Shreeji for the permission and invitation .

As I sat inside and admired the amazing Leelas painted on the walls I felt so peaceful like I was a part of it like I have been there.

When Guruji asked us to close our eyes and wait for our turn to come 1 by 1 to look at what was under the white cloth in HIS shrine I felt so heavy and lot of pressure on my bindi then I called to Shreeji and asked HIM to please visit me be with me play with me.

After my 30 second Darshans of the flower arrangement of Swastik in yellow flowers and rest in orange red which was under the white cloth I saw within my bindi a Swastik and Shree signs merging it was quite an amazing vision ..

Then I got into a play of hide n seek with Shreeji I was calling out to him and was visualising him playing amongst us and hiding behind all those sitting there.

Once Guruji started the music of birds chirping my bindi area started to tingle and I don’t know whether it was my imagination or a voice frm down the hotel but I clearly heard a childlike voice saying Tum Kaha Ho !! I started to tear up and searched for that voice again while the music was going on but that was it for that split second –

then Guruji asked us to open our eyes and look at Abha. I was still in the thought of that voice I could not see initially on Abhas forehead ..

Thought I saw Lord Krishna with a flowing garment but then I clearly saw the face of Shreeji on top of her bindi ….what a miracle…. When Guruji asked us to come close and have a look I could not see infact I saw an Om but when I went back to my sitting place I saw the face clearly again !

The entire experience of being there witnessing the image of Shreejis face on Abhas forehead and having my own personal play with Shreeji was out of this world/ body – I didn’t want to leave wanted to continue my games with Shreeji.

As I came back to my room my eyes and head were so heavy I just wanted to sleep.

Thru the day felt so happy and energetic.My kids commented on how fresh I looked and we’re smiling as I was still chanting Radhey Radhey Shyam Radhey at 11.30 pm .I also felt a lot of heat in my hands till night all at home commented on that .

So grateful to my Shreeji Guruji and Abha mini Guru for this amazing spiritual enlivening visit to Vrindavan – what feels like home.

Shreeji Ki Jai Ho

Manju Jhanjaria:

Jai Shree Krishn, abha let me thank you  that I am a part of your  spiritual journey, which  from the depth I enjoy every moment.

It was so beautiful that I was there even though it was a short visit, but as Gurushreeji said the Shreeji ke Icha ke bina kuch bhi nahi ho sakta; so I was there for a day.

The morning at theShreeji neej niwas was such a lovey experience the energy was so much that we could feel it by our thoughts. It was full of positive energy which we could see and feel it.

As I closed my eyes I could only see bal Gopal and His Mukut which was very prominent.

And I saw the same on your forehead.

On the flower swastika as soon as I saw, I saw ladoo Gopal with a Mukut which was so obvious and when I came and sat with eyes closed I could just see ladoo Gopal.

Even on your forehead I could clearly see the Mukut and tilak and Gopala. It was very clear. I couldn’t believe it how can it happen but again Shreeji can do anything.

And when my eyes were closed and as I was engrossed I felt that someone woke me up wth just a soft push. And I got up and then couldn’t concentrate as then mind was conscious.

But I believe that because of your true sacrifice and devotion this is happening.

Abha, it is all because of ur strength.

But really the strength I gained in one day I just cannot believe for myself. I am blessed to have you in my life.

My path of life will never be wrong or do anything wrong to anyone as Shreeji, Gurushreeji, and you will always be there to guide.

Radhe radhe. Jai Shree Krishn Abha .

Arunaji Kochar:

श्रीजी के निज निवास में प्रवेश करते ही एक अजीब सी प्रस्सन्नता, शांति, पवित्रता महसूस हुई.

जब गुरूजी ने वस्त्र हटाया तो स्वस्तिक के दर्शन हुवे.

बाद मे जंगल में बालगोपाल के साथ बैठे है ऐसा प्रतीत हुआ. पंच्छीयोकि मधुर आवाज, पानी का झरना बह रहा है, मानो वहाँ ४ घंटे भी बैठने मिलता तो भी समय का पता नहीं चलता. ऐसी अलोकिक शांति थी.

और आभा जी के माथे पर लालन के दर्शन हुए.

साक्षात् श्रीजी वहाँ थे और हमें दर्शन दिए ये अनुभूति वहाँ हुई.

ये अवसर बार बार आये, आप सभी की उपस्थित्ति में हम धन्य हो गए.

श्रीजी की जय हो

Ritu Kochar:

इस बार का अनुभव बहुत अद्भुत था।  रूम में जाकर मन बहुत शांत था,वहा आँखे बंद करके ,धुन सुनते हुए ऐसा लग रहा था की किसी वन में बैठी हूँ,पक्षियों की मधुर आवाज़,पेरो के नीचे एकदम ठंडा लग रहा था ऐसा महसूस हो रहा था जैसे नदी किनारे हूँ।

आभाजी के मस्तक पर बालस्वरुप मुकुटधारी श्रीजी का मुख (जैसा गोवर्धनपर दर्शन हुए थे) और उसके ऊपर स्वास्तिक के दर्शन हुए।

बहोत अलोकिक, अद्भुत और सुन्दर दर्शन थे ।आज भी वह दर्शन आँखों के सामने है।

श्रीजी,गुरुश्री और आभाजी आपको नतमस्तक प्रणाम ।।दर्शन स्वरुपआपका आशिर्वाद प्राप्त हुआ।।।

Sarvesh Shahra:

When we entered Shreeji nij niwas, the place felt serene and sacred. I had not entered the room in some years and felt very blessed and privileged to be invited by Shreeji again to His Niwas sthaan..

The energy levels and the divine presence were alive in the room on that day.

The Darshan was a very nice experience and although it was for a very short time, it was divine.

I saw some light form running on the flower swastik. Later mummy explained it was Shreeji Urja running in this Form.

I saw the Shree श्री darshan on mummy’s forehead, which I have seen many times earlier also.

Post the Darshan, I left the room and was advised by Sudhir Bhai to return to my room and spend time alone and in peace.

Once I reached the room, I sat down on the sofa and felt absolute peace and calm. I went into a meditative state for almost 30 minutes; it felt like a deep sleep. I was in total peace. It was almost like I had travelled to another world.
Sheela Mepani:

Hi Abha

As we set down in Shreeji’s room I felt I was at home, there was kind of warmth. On the flower swastika I saw some movement; at that point I thought I saw Bal Krishna moving.

But could be my imagination.

When we set with eyes closed I felt some movement on my head. My head got tilted upward and I started shaking. As I became aware It stopped.

On your forehead I could see some figure which I felt it was the BalGopal I saw earlier. I started crying. I could not control my tears. This was when there was no light.

You know I do not like to talk after any experience. So I went and sat in my room. Felt relaxed and sleepy. As I write now I have goosebumps.

Tushar Kochar:

सुबह जब श्रीजी के निज निवास में दर्शन के लिए बैठे हुए थे, तब अलोकिक शांति का अनुभव हुआ.

जब गुरुजी ने दर्शन के लिए बुलाया तब फूलो में सजे हुवे स्वस्तिक के दर्शन हुए.

जब गुरुजी ने म्यूज़िक शुरू करा, तो पंच्छीयोकि मधुर आवाज आ रही थी, ऐसा लग रहा था जैसे जंगल में शांत बैठे हुए है और मधुर आवाज़ आ रही है, ऐसी अनुभूति हुई.

जब गुरुजी ने आभाजी के मस्तिक पर देखने के लिए संकेत करा, तब मस्तिष्क के बायें तरफ़ पर आकृति नजर आई परंतु दुरी के वजह से आकृति पहचान नहीं पाए.

पाट उत्सव के अद्भुत दर्शन हुए.

Abha ji i have no words to explain how blessed  n lucky I am feeling .

Thanks a lot abha ji

Nisha Khandelwal:

On 16th February 2016 at Shreeji Nij Niwas, I felt calmness and peace.

When Sudhir bhai instructed I saw the Sathiya made of flowers.I had darshans of three colour lights – Yellow, orange, Blue; which was moving very fast over the Sathiya in the form of a flame.

(Later Abhaji explained that it was Shreeji who gave us darshans in this Form)

On Abhaji’s forehead on the left side, I saw clear picture of ShreeNathji Mangla Darshan with silver outline of His Dhoti. I got goose bumps.

When I met Abhaji after an hour these marks, Darshans were not there.

Vrindavan yatra was a very different experience, amazing anubhuties!

Pragnaji Shah:

” श्रीजी निजनिवास ”

महासुद -९ ( १६-२-२०१६)
एक अलौकिक अनुभूति का अनुभव।
प्रथम आँखे बंध करनेके बाद … पीछे की दीवार पर स्वस्तिक चिन्ह है
उस जगह से ” गोकुल चाँद – गोकुल चाँद ” शब्दों की मधुर गूंज
कर्ण पटल पर सुनाई देने लगी.
बाद मे धीरे धीरे आँखों के सामने एक प्रज्वलित गोल घूमता हुआ महसूस किया।
मस्तिस्क और पूरे शरीर मे  कुछ प्रवाह  का स्पर्श महशुश किया.
आँखे खोलने के बाद एक अद्भुत शांति और आनंद प्राप्त हुआ।
” साक्षात + शांति + आनंद = अलौकिकता ”
श्री जी के जय हो …..
प्रज्ञा शाह का जय श्री कृष्ण

(These are all their personal writings and experiences. I have only corrected few grammatical errors).

Jai Shreeji, Jai Gurushree;

It has been an alokik anubhuti for all, and I express gratitude from all of us for the kripa and sacred divya darshans.

जो श्रम ठाकुरजी को हुआ उसके लिए क्षमा चाहते हैं,

प्रणाम,

आपकी आभा शाहरा श्यामा

Kadamb flowers

Sacred, Divine Kadamb:

When they bloom, the environment around smells sweetly fragrant; the fragrance is unlike any other flower.
0

June, July is the month that the sacred Kadamb tree flowers in India. The blooms stay just for a month.

Every year I wait for these blooms and try to go walk around them taking in as much fragrance as is possible.

2a

This unique fragrance is unlike any other flower and is very sweet. Because of this the Kadamb flowers are always surrounded by honey bees.

7

My dream is, someday I might just be able to tent below these trees and enjoy them totally for day and night.

6

I personally love this fragrance; in fact the fragrance stays for few days even after the flowers have dried. Whenever possible I take a branch of the blooms and keep in my room, taking in their unearthly fragrance even after they have dried.

Kadamb tree and blooms are considered sacred as it is very closely associated with Divine Shree RadhaKrishn and ShreeNathji.

This is the tree under which the Divine couple spent time in Their various leelas. Vraj Mandal has numerous Kadamb trees.

It finds mention in all Hindu scriptures.

Kadamb tree’s botanical name is Anthocephalus cadamba. It is a large tree with a broad crown and straight cylindrical bole. It is quick growing, large; has large spreading and grows rapidly in first 6-8 year and produces golden ball of flowers. The tree may reach a height of 45 m with trunk diameters of 100-(160) cm. The tree sometimes has small buttresses and a broad crown. The bark is grey, smooth in young trees, rough and longitudinally fissured in old trees).

Out of millions of shrubs and plants, it is claimed that the 27 Stars (constellations) constituting 12 Houses (Rasis) and 9 Planets are specifically represented precisely by 27 trees only—one for each star—since the character of the stars, the trees and the individual go together. The Kadamba tree is said to represent Shatabhisha (Western star name -γ Aquarii) star. The characteristics of this star are ascribed to the tree as also to the individual born in that star

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.

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.

Pushtimarg Baithaks:

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.

(Details of his life and teachings can be read on my website:

http://www.shreenathjibhakti.org

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.

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.
