The Fragrant Garden holiday

As I enter this holiday home the first thing to catch my attention is this huge ‘Madhu Malti-Bel’ which covers the back entrance of the house. It’s like a dream come true!

Fragrant Madhu Malti creeper which frames the back door

And as I discover in a walk around the lovely garden I realise it has all possible fragrant plants and trees around. OMG. This tall parijat😳 with the equally tall yellow desi SonChampa trees around it. The Ananta bush, the mogras, the Plumeria-Champa in every colour and variety! I discover that every corner has been filled with a fragrant bush. Bushes of Kamini fill the garden. Surely all year through must be filled with their seasonal aromas.

This MadhuMalti-bel is extraordinary! As it’s in full bloom.

The fragrance that it gives off fills all senses and I have to literally fight the urge to just laze under it all day till I drown in the natural aroma.
Lazing in the verandah has now become a habit

I find myself on this rocking chair every morning taking a nap besides this aromatic creeper, till I am woken up by the nudge of a nose from this Indibreed dog who claims ownership of this verandah. Which then reminds me of the takeaway sentence from this trip, courtesy Amisha my daughter;

“You have to learn to co exist, it is the natural way to live”!

Well I am trying this new life lesson and it does make a lot of sense: Even when I learnt that I was actually on the pot with a frog under me 😩

To take this photo I literally had to fight off few spiders 🕷 from the shoulders and brush off spider webs off my face.

As the sun rises and it’s rays hit the ground, this fragrance fills the surroundings. I have spent mornings and evenings, taking in this wonderful fragrance. It’s actually been a long standing desire to create this fragrant garden around me. Circumstances have not been conducive to it, I find myself living this dream here. The fulfilment of one more desire with kripa from my Thakurjee. (with help from my dear Tiki)

🙏🙏

I long to be there!

Divine Vraj Mandal is sakshat Golok 🙏

Just so all can have darshans of the Bhumi, I’ll try and post few from my collection of several yatras over the years. A kripa from the divine shaktis of Vraj bhumi🙏

Hope all bhakts enjoy them; a kripa from Shree Radha Herself, who is the original Divine Shakti 🙏

वह भव्य, दिव्य व्रज भूमि, जो साक्षात गोलोक है,

जब नेत्र और आत्म में शुद्धता होने से आलोकिकता महसूस होने लगे,

Ter Kadamb is located just 1.5 km from Nandgaon and is quite secluded. So that retains the traditional vibe of Vraj Bhumi. It is the place where Shree Krishn plays bansuri to call His 900000 cows

Shri Vallabh Aachary 24th Baithakji at Shri Chitrakut

ShreeNathji-MahaPrabhuji 24th Baithakji at Chitrakut, Madhya Pradesh

Here are some pictures displayed from my visit to the 24th Baithak of Mahaprabhuji, located at Chitrakut on Shri Kantanath Parvat (श्री कान्तानाथ पर्वत,सतना), Satna, Madhya Pradesh.

Baithakji Charitr: (बैठकजी चरित्र)

On Shri Kantanath Parvat, Mahaprabhuji Vallabh Achary narrated Shrimad Bhagavad Puran(श्रीमद् भागवद पुराण). He also narrated the pavitr Ramayan Granth (रामायण पाठ); explaining the legends of Shree Ram and Sita mata.

Shree Hunumanji, daily came and stood on one foot when hearing the pavitr varta.

Though Mahaprabhuji requested Him to take his seat, Hanumanji refused saying that he had taken a sankalp.

Mahaprabhu Vallabhachary later explained that Shri Kantanath parvat is the brother of Shri Giriraj Parvat, therefore we should not walk on the sacred mountain.

Shri Kantanath parvat, wished that Mahaprabhuji bless him with the touch of his feet; so came disguised as a Brahman saying, “Shree Sita and Shree Ram have told me to tell you that They are on top of Shri Kantanath parvat and are very hungry so please bring them some food.”

Shri Mahaprabhuji then requested Damala to prepare bananas with sugar, cardaman, and rose water. At this Krishndas questioned, “How is it possible to offer the foodstuff to Shree Krishn and alsoto Shree Ram?” Shri Mahaprabhuji replied, “Shree Ram is no other than Shree Krishn, the only difference being that Shree Ram is controlled by law while Shree Krishn is governed by grace.”

Shri Mahaprabhu ji then went up on the parvat and saw Shree Sita and Shree Ram sitting with Laxshman by their side holding an umbrella. Hanumanji stood by with folded hands.

Shree Ram, taking Shri Mahaprabhuji’s hand made him sit next to him on his jewelled throne. After Shree Ram and Shree Sita partook of the bananas, Laxshman ji and Hamunan ji took the remains.

For some time Shree Ram and Mahaprabhuji became engrossed in divine discourse.

Shree Ram then said, “It was my great desire to partake food offered by your hand. Mahaprabhuji then took his leave and climbed down of Shri Kantanath parvat.

Jai ShreeNathji Prabhu 🙏

Jai Shree RadheKrishn 🙏

What are Pushtimarg Baithaks?

Baithaks in Pushtimarg religion are pavitr places where Shri Vallabhachary, the founder of Pushtimarg, narrated the Pavitr 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 Charitr (description).

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

Giriraj Govardhan at Vraj Mandal:

Importance of Chaturmaas:(Four Monsoon months)

Giriraj Govardhan at Vraj Mandal:
बारिश का मौसम गिरिराज जी को मन मोहक बना देता है।

Importance of Chaturmaas, in ShreeNathji Yatra from Shri Govardhan to Shri Nathdwara in 1672 AD

..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 sevaks arrived in Sinhad (Nathdwara) in 1672 AD, on Falgun Vad Satam on Saturday.

Since He began travel from Giriraj to Nathdwara, ShreeNathji spent three Chaturmaas on the way.

The first Chaturmaas was spent at Krishnpur in Dandoti Ghat, near the Chambal river.

The second Chaturmaas was in Krishnbilaas at Kota. (He halted here for four months).

The third Chaturmaas was spent in Chapaseni at Jodhpur. He also celebrated an Annakut here. Halt here was roughly for five months.

The fourth Chaturmaas ShreeNathji was at His mandir in Mewar.

For 2 years, 4 months and 7 days that ShreeNathji travelled from Vraj to Mewar, He spent living in His Rath.

The places blessed by Him along the way were, Hindmultan, Dandotighat, Bundi, Kota, Dhundhar, Marwad, Baanswaro, Dungarpur, Shahpura.
