Keeping shraddha..No matter what..!

ShreeNathji 🙏

क्या प्रार्थना करूँ?

क्या माँगू आपसे; चाह का तो कोई अंत नहीं होता,

इसलिए

प्रभु कृपा रखना आपकी की कभी राह से नहीं भटकूँ

हमेशा शुभ भावना हो सभी के लिए

लोभ और राग-द्वेष से परे रहकर आपमें समर्पित रहूँ;

तन, मन, धन, आत्मा, वचन, आपको समर्पित 🙏

‘Keeping complete shraddha no matter what happens, is the highest form of prarthna in bhakti’.

“जितना झुकेंगे उतना ज्यादा पाएँगे”

आध्यात्मिक राह पर कभी भी लोभी और लालची नहीं हो सकते।

प्रभु श्रीनाथजी प्रेरणा और गुरुश्री के आशीर्वाद से,

एक लेखक होने से समझा है की जीवन में जो भी पाते है, हमेशा बाँटना चाहिए।

यही श्री कृष्ण कहते हैं गीता में, “तेरा कर्म है बाँटते रहना (share); जो लायक हैं और शुद्ध भाव से प्रभु भक्ति में लीन हैं; वो पा ही जाएगा”.

आशा है की प्रभु प्रेम और श्रीजी के नटखट खेल का आनंद आप सभी को हमेशा पहुँचता रहे 🙏

जय हो प्रभु 🙏

सप्रेम 🌹

Bhagwan Shree Krishn Janm Sthal

Bhagwan Shree Krishn Janm Sthal at Mathura

Karagaar (Prison) is the place where Bhagwan Shree Krishn took birth to Devki maa and Shri Vasudev; in the Dwapur Yug and was immediately carried away in the dark night by Nand Baba to Gokul.

शुभ श्री कृष्ण जन्म अष्टमी 🙏🙏 रोहिणी नक्षत्र में आधि रात को कंस के कारागार में जन्मे थे हमारे प्रिय श्री कृष्ण। 🙇🏻‍♀️🙇🏻‍♀️

जय श्री कृष्ण 🙏🙏

Details with photos:

On my visit here, I found the security to be very extensive, which did not make sense as there are several super sacred spots in Vraj which have been left to deteriorate and vanish. The only reason for this high alert security as I later realised, is because of the mosque built adjacent to this mandir.

The Shree Krishn Janm bhumi complex today:

Under the chairmanship of Swami Shri Akhandananda Saraswati, the then Vice President of the Trust, a group of enthusiastic young volunteers of Mathura started clearing the mounds and filling up the pits through Shram Daan on the auspicious day, 15th October, 1953.

Later, the work continued for several years with great perseverance under the leadership of Shri Babulal Bajaj and Shri Phool Chand Khandelwal.

Thus began the restoration and construction of the karagaar (prison) and the magnificent Shri Krishna Janmasthan complex, which was completed in February 1982 and what we see today.

This is the main entry gate today, where the security is enormous. No mobile phones are also allowed and the checking at the gate is very high

 The sacred mandir that stands today is the 5th or 6th remake of the original destroyed by the Moghul’s over and over again.

Jai Shree Radhe Krishn

 कृष्‍ण जन्‍मस्‍थान का संक्षिप्त इतिहास 🙏

आज मथुरा में जिस जगह पर श्री कृष्‍ण जन्‍मस्‍थान के दर्शन है, वह पांच हजार साल पहले राजा कंस का कारागार हुआ करता था।

रोहिणी नक्षत्र में आधी रात को भगवान कृष्‍ण का जन्‍म इसी कारागार में हुआ था।

कटरा केशवदेव को ही कृष्ण जन्मभूमि माना है।

राजा बज्रनाभ जो श्री कृष्ण के प्रपौत्र थे, यहाँ पहला मंदिर बनवाया था।

इतिहास में लिखा है की दूसरी बार राजा विक्रमादित्य ने मंदिर का निर्माण करा था। राजा चंद्रगुप्त विक्रमादित्य द्वारा बनवाए गए इस भव्य मंदिर पर महमूद गजनवी ने सन १०१७ ई. में आक्रमण करा था। उस ने इसे लूटने के बाद पूर्ण रूप से तोड़ दिया था।

तीसरी बार राजा विजयपाल देव ने इस मंदिर का निर्माण करा जो सिकंदर लोदी ने तोड़ा।

चौथी बार इस मंदिर का निर्माण राजा वीर सिंह देव बुंदेला ने करा; जो औरंगजेब ने १६६९ में तुड़वाया

और इसके एक भाग पर ईदगाह का निर्माण करा।

ShreeNathji-MahaPrabhuji 21st Baithakji at BhandirVan

ShreeNathji-MahaPrabhuji 21st Baithakji at BhandirVan, Maant, Mathura, Vraj Mandal

Shri Bhandirvan Baithakji Number 21

Baithakji Charitr: (बैठकजी चरित्र)

अदेयदान दक्ष श्री महा प्रभुजी ने यहाँ श्रीमद् भागवदपारायण किया था।

यहीं पर श्री माध्व सम्प्रदाय के स्वामी व्यासतीर्थ जी को त्याग की महत्ता बतलाते हुए लक्षावधि सम्पत्ति का त्याग किया था

जय श्रीनाथजी प्रभु 🙏🙏

Here are some pictures displayed from my visit to the 21st  Baithak of Mahaprabhuji, which is located at BhandirVan, Maant, Mathura, Vraj Mandal

MahaPrabhuji 21st Baithakji at BhandirVan, Maant, Mathura, Vraj Mandal

Baithakji Charitr: (बैठकजी चरित्र)

Baithakji-21

Vyastirth, a religious head of Madhva Sampradaya was living here with 10,000 disciples. When Shri Mahaprabhuji was in this area for Bhagavat discourses, Vyastirth approached and requested Shri Mahaprabhuji  to take over his position with all the disciples. He also offered him 10,000 Rupees.

Shri Mahaprabhuji told him that he would reply him next morning.

That night, the servants of Yamdut came and beat Vyastirtha. He asked for the reason and was told, You have the pride to think that you can give something to Shri Mahaprabhuji. Your words to Him was unbefitting. Go and grasp His feet, seek His protection.

The following morning, Vyastirth apologized to Shri Mahaprabhuji for his prideful words and prayed to make him His disciple. Shri Mahaprabhuji initiated him into the Path of Grace (Pushti Marg).

(This detail of the original varta about this Baithakji is taken from website:

http://www.vallabhkankroli.org/)

 Jai ShreeNathji prabhu

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); seva is done of Gaddi (Seating).

I long to be there!

And I realise that similarly there must be 1000’s of bhakts who long to place foot in Vraj.

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,

तो समझिए श्रीनाथजी, श्री राधा कृष्ण की कृपा बरस रही है 🙏
