Save Vrindavan

SAVE VRINDAVAN FROM THE GREED OF HUMANS:

Special strong laws is need of the hour. Already this sacred city has reached the point of no return. Few years more down the line and we will have a concrete jungle and heaps of waste littering all the divine vans. Yamunaji has already shrunk to the point of not being there.

आज ७ जुलाई २०१९, वृंदावन में सूचना मिली की #CMYogiAditynath वृंदावन में पधार रहे हैं।

मीटिंग है और बाँके बिहारी जी के दर्शन के लिए जाएँगे।

सम्पूर्ण city को बंद कर दिया! रिक्शॉ तक को अंदर घूमने की अनुमति नहीं है। कई घंटों तक सब रोड बंद रहेंगे।

#CMYogiAditynath अगर आप VIP roads से आएँगे जाएँगे, शहर आपके लिए ख़ाली कर दिया जाएगा, आपको कैसे अन्दाज़ होगा की समस्या क्या हैं?

सुधार कैसे करेंगे?

फ़ालतू के projects पर budget ख़र्च करके आप समझते हैं आपकी duty पूरी हो गई?

शहर और तीर्थ की जो असल समस्या है, वहीं की वहीं रह जाती हैं।

क्या आपने कभी सोचा है की आप आपके VIP troup के साथ निकल जाते हैं, किंतु आप अभी नहीं जान पाते हैं, सत्य क्या है?

आज किन हालात में है यह पवित्र भूमि, जो श्री राधा कृष्ण का निवास है, जहाँ हर क़दम पर कोई लीला भूमि है?

वृंदावन आज इतने बुरे आक्रमण से जूझ रहा है, आप को कैसे पता चलेगा, आप कभी समझ ही नहीं सकते!

आक्रमण लालच में अंधे इंसान का है, जो इस पवित्र भूमि को लूटने पर तुले हैं।

#CMYogi

Please come down to the level of the common bhakt and try to see what is ailing my #Vrindavan.

Stop trying to see Vrindavan riding on your special #helicopters 🚁

Walk on the streets to know how you can truly help this dying #teerth

श्रीनाथजी #ठाकुरजी प्रभु आपको सद् बुद्धि देने की कृपा करें 🙏

Do not create picnic spots at Vrindavan

श्री राधा कृष्ण श्रीनाथजी की पवित्र लीला भूमि, व्रज मंडल को टुरिस्ट स्पॉट बना कर और नष्ट मत करीए 🙏

#CMOyogi आपसे निवेदन है सभी व्रज प्रेमियों का, पहले संरक्षण (preservation) और मरम्मत (restoration) के लिए funds दीजिए। नए विकास (development) की यहाँ जगह और ज़रूरत इस समय नहीं है 🙏

– first step towards responsibility for Vraj Mandal is preservation and restoration of what is left.

(Several things are already beyond repair).

If nothing is done even today for preservation, Vraj will be in a crisis situation.

The point of no return😢

CM YOGI COMING TO VRINDAVAN TO INAUGURATE THE BIGGEST PARK IN INDIA😥 Our plea to this government who is spending multi crores to hide the sad state of Vraj.. ख़ुश होने की बात है? नहीं!!

The crores and crores they sign on papers need to be used for preservation first. If preserved there will be no need to create anything new. Vraj Mandal cannot be marked as a tourist spot.

It’s excellent that the present government is giving any thought to re development of Vraj.

Sadly this re development will not work till preservation and restoration is given priority.

One just has to take a walk on Vrindavan Parikrama marg to see the degradation of this pavitra Dham.

– We first need to vacate the encroachment on the marg and make a walkway at Shri Yamunaji. From where bhakts can access the pavitr leela sthals of Shree RadhaKrishn.

– Removing the monkey menace is the second step in taking care of our pavitr Dham. All peacocks are being driven away by this menace and bhakts walk in fear.

– Pigs have entered every sacred sthal, including at Shri Govardhan. Which need to be removed ASAP. Five years ago none were there.

Someone is trying to destroy the pavitrata of Hindu teerths.

– Entire Chatikara pavements have already been taken over by the illegal hawkers.

– The Nagar Palika and Police force should become accountable.

The people in power never see the REAL VRAJ PROBLEMS. As every thing is cleared and cleaned at the areas where they visit.

In olden days the Raja and Maharajas walked around their cities in disguise to SEE THE REAL STATE OF THEIR LAND.

Wonder what Vraj Mandal we are leaving for our children and grandchildren.

They will only be able to see the original reality in some photos or videos which bhakts may have uploaded.

And Girirajji Govardhan is in the worst of state today.

All just TAKE..TAKE..TAKE.

May the present government see the truth of their actions.

The crores and crores they sign on papers need to be used for preservation and restoration first. If preserved there will be no need to create anything new.

The old and ancient pavitrata if returned to Vraj Mandal will be enough for the higher divine shaktis.

OR ELSE THESE SHAKTIS WILL NO LONGER BE AROUND.

दिव्य शक्तियों को साफ़, सुथरा पवित्र वातावरण चाहिए.

नहीं तो वह दिन दूर नहीं, की वे सब भूतल में गहरी उतर जाएँगी और हम हाथ मलते रह जाएँगे, अपने दुर्भाग्य पर। हमारे बच्चों को दर्शन का लाभ नहीं मिल पाएगा, और हम सब इसके ज़िम्मेदार होंगे।

जय श्रीनाथजी, जय श्री राधा कृष्ण

कृपा करें, सदबुद्धि दें,

आभा शाहरा श्यामा

Vraj Mandal-Vishram Ghat

Sandhya arti darshans at Vishram Ghat:

Vishram Ghat is the place where Shree Krishn rested after killing His mama Kans.

 

 

Visharam Ghat, Mathura, द्वारका दीश मंदिर से 30 मीटर की दूरी पर, नया बाज़ार में स्थित है। यह मथुरा के 25 घाटों में से एक प्रमुख घाट है। विश्राम घाट के उत्तर में 12 और दक्षिण में 12 घाट है। यहाँ अनेक सन्तों ने तपस्या की एवं अपना विश्राम स्थल बनाया। विश्राम घाट पर यमुना महारानी का अति सुंदर मंदिर स्थित है। यमुना महारानी जी की आरती विश्राम घाट से ही की जाती है। विश्राम घाट पर संध्या का समय और भी आध्यात्मिक होता है।

धार्मिक मान्यता

भगवान श्री कृष्ण ने कंस का वध कर इस स्थान पर विश्राम किया था इसलिये यहाँ की महिमा अपरम्पार है। कहा जाता है कि भगवान श्रीकृष्ण ने महाबलशाली कंस को मारकर ध्रुव घाट पर उसकी अन्त्येष्टि संस्कार करवाकर बन्धु−बान्धवों के साथ यमुना के इस पवित्र घाट पर स्नान कर विश्राम किया था। श्रीकृष्ण की नरलीला में ऐसा सम्भव है; परन्तु सर्वशक्तियों से सम्पन्न सच्चिदानन्द स्वयं भगवान श्रीकृष्ण को विश्राम की आवश्यकता नहीं होती है। किन्तु भगवान से भूले–भटके जन्म मृत्यु के अनन्त, अथाह सागर में डूबते–उबरते हुए क्लान्त जीवों के लिए यह आवश्यक ही विश्राम का स्थान है।

सौर पुराण के अनुसार विश्रान्ति तीर्थ नामकरण का कारण बतलाया गया है−

ततो विश्रान्ति तीर्थाख्यं तीर्थमहो विनाशनम्।

संसारमरू संचार क्लेश विश्रान्तिदं नृणाम।।संसार रूपी मरूभूमि में भटकते हुए, त्रितापों से प्रपीड़ित, सब प्रकार से निराश्रित, नाना प्रकार के क्लेशों से क्लान्त होकर जीव श्रीकृष्ण के पादपद्म धौत इस महातीर्थ में स्नान कर विश्राम अनुभव करते हैं। इसलिए इस महातीर्थ का नाम विश्रान्ति या विश्राम घाट है। इस महातीर्थ में स्नान एवं आचमन के पश्चात् प्रतिवर्ष लाखों श्रद्धालु लोग व्रज मण्डल की परिक्रमा का संकल्प लेते हैं और पुन: यहीं पर परिक्रमा का समापन करते हैं।

Dancing Peacocks-Vraj Mandal Pictures

These few peacock pictures are from the holy land of Vraj Mandal.

The peacocks are a very intimate part of the Divine ShreeKrishn and ShreeRadha leela. In some way they might belong to the generations of peacocks whose ancestors would have been a witness to Shree Radha and Shree Krishn leelas on this pavitra bhumi thousands of years ago

Peacocks are by nature very shy and hide away from intruders, I feel fortunate to have been able to catch them in the very natural surroundings. Unfortunately due to unplanned development in the holy Braj Dham and with an increase of the monkey population in the surroundings, these beautiful peacocks have dramatically reduced in number.

This is also an appeal to all, not to kill these beautiful birds for recreation or meat. They are as close to Shree RadhaKrishn as Their beloved sacred Cows!

I have selected a few dancing peacock pictures from my vast collection of peacock photos.

Hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I have been delighted to photograph and present them before you.

A beautiful sunset on the sacred Yamuna river flowing through Vrindavan.

Yamunaji flows through entire Braj Dham and is the Leela Sthali of many Shree RadhaKrishn Leelas.

These pictures are from a monsoon evening, with the rainy grey clouds ready to shower heavily.

On the Parikrama maarg, many bhakts gather to say a small prayer to Shri Yamunaji.

Vraj Mandal- Vishram Ghat Pictures

 

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

These are a few pictures from the most famous amd holy Vishram Ghat, at Mathura, Braj Dham, India.

This Sthal is considered very holy by all Vaishnavs and Pushti Maarg bhakts. This land is closely associated with Shree Radha Krishn divine Leelas.

Bhakts are gathered here inspite of the chilled winter foggy morning for the Mangla aarti. In fact, even in this low temperature you can see some bhakts who take a dubki (Dip) in these holy waters

    “Braj Dham –  Are the Divine Shaktis leaving us…?

(I apologise for depicting such filth about the divine land, but it is a sad state of affairs in ShreeRadhaKrishn-ShreeNathji Leela Bhumi)

Paragraph taken from my book: Zero2Dot.

http://www.zero2dot.org/

….  At this moment all who have been to Braj will agree how the authorities have let the whole of the area develop into an open sewage. There is no control or discipline in traffic as also the cleanliness of the district. Pilgrims are hounded by the locals and no one is allowed a moment’s peace in any of the important divine spots. The garbage is scattered all over and it looks worse than Bombay on a bad day (we call Mumbai the Slumbai and the sewer of the country).

Braj is called the Spiritual capital of this country and it definitely deserves better treatment from the government and of course from all the bhakts who visit or stay there. Rest of course is all in God’s hands, to decide what we deserve as humans.IMG_5043

(I do not like depicting my divine Braj in such filth, just a couple of pictures to show my point : these are from Govardhan and the prikrama marg;  there are spots worse then these; plastic is merging in a big way with the divine ‘Ruj’ of Vrindavan Dham and the sacred waters of Yamunaji. Because of the unplanned construction the sacred Sthals are being eaten away.  In areas like Sewa Kunj, Nidhi Van.. where one is not allowed to stay at night; surrounding structures have become so high, any one can peek at night within the sacred premises; they have also encroached in a big way sharing the boundary wall also! Similar there are several examples like this, all who visit Braj are very well aware of this fact.

???abhashahraDSC_0829DSC_0831IMG_5032IMG_50439

At Govardhan where ShreeNath Lives at the Mukharwind,  greed has made the locals take over HIS land. The shops have reached HIS door, the place where all believe ShreeNathji spends the night and the sacred place from where He has Appeared).

… There are so many spots like this, which are religious and sacred, but are not looked after due to various reasons. I feel, these places which are alive with the Presence of the Highest Energies and Powers, and the belief of the people being so high in them, deserve more importance from the concerned authorities.

 In spite of all the proofs as the original homes of the Deities, it is truly sad to see them having deteriorated to that extent. When the sacredness around the places is believed to be so high, it has to be looked after by the people who can exert the right power.

These sadhu, sanyasis, bhakts who have built their ashrams here, and people in power, own this to the Deities present there and to the Shraddha of the people who flock there for darshans.

This is a very intricate part of our spiritual culture, and dates back to before 5000 years; if proofs are there about this truth, why are they being neglected?

Why do we not feel strongly enough to protect the right environment, and give Shree RadhaKrishn “Energies” the highest purity and pavitra surroundings, so “They” can flow and flourish in their Form.

At this point I am sure “They” have been pushed in the corner as “They” will not flow when the right Bhao is not provided.

THE LOSS IS OURS; AS HUMANS THAT WE SHUT OUR EYES TO THE WEALTH AND RICHNESS OF THE HIGHER ENERGIES WE HAVE IN OUR MIDST.

“Who knows, some day “THEY” may decide we don’t just deserve it   all; and move away altogether?”

Where will that leave the sanctity of the place – which is accepted as the most Divine in our spiritual history?

(In June 2006, had the experience of being on the road in a car during the Govardhanji parikrama, at the Mansi Ganga area on a poonam. We were there with someone who was trying to show us some lands for purchase. It was like a stampede. We got caught in the worst human traffic with cars parked randomly every where. Not a single traffic policeman came to control the madness. There were lakhs of pilgrims doing the Govardhan Parikrama on that day, which is supposed to be a normal occurrence on poonam, over here. The whole scene turned so ugly we had 100’s of these people, including women and children climbing over our car, on the hood, the doors, the scene looked like monkeys gone mad(and I do not exaggerate) – basically over our heads to run for the parikrama. There was absolutely no bhao or religion in their hearts or minds. Like ShreeNathji then told us – “See these are humans today – there is no bhakti here. Even if God sat in that car they would not hesitate to climb on His head to get their share of “PUNYA” in completing the parikrama that day”. ShreeNathji wondered what these people actually deserved. None of the people there had the goodness of stopping for a few minutes to let the cars pass away.

There is a lot of selfishness and envy in the hearts and minds – I cannot talk about the soul as that is totally asleep yet in all of them.

The dirt from the left over food is scattered all over the side roads, and we talk about the Govardhanji being sacred?

Will GovardhanNathji – ShreeNathji ever reward them?

ShreeNathji

ShreeNathji

He gave us this experience to make us aware of the humanity today).

It would not be surprising if the Higher Energies decide to move away into the clean corners and leave all of us empty handed as may be this is what we truly deserve.

Blessings on this birthday

Today is the 16th August 2009; though a day like any other in the calendar is special for me. It is my 53rd birthday today and the reason for my writing, about this day.

There are two days a birthday can be celebrated-one by the English calendar which is by the date and shows the 16th; the other is by the Lunar Hindu calendar which is called the ‘Tithi birthday’.

My Tithi birthday this year came on the 1st August. The detail explanations about the Tithi cannot be given here, in short it is a day with similar star placements to my day of birth in 1956 when certain nakshatra and yoga and raashi match- which is Dhanu Raashi, Moola Nakshatra in short. Today I am very joyful and blissful; all my past sadhanas(from this and previous births) have given me results which make me the luckiest soul in the entire world today.

This Janmashtmi (Birthday of ShreeKrishn) of 2009, is the same tithi as the original one when ShreeKrishn was born as an Avtaar on this earth 1000’s of years ago.(details about this will follow later in another writing).  According to beliefs and calculations, on this very, very auspicious day there would be rare, some, who receive HIS Blessings, as is believed that ShreeKrishn’s Live Presence is some where on this planet.

On this very uniquely sacred day, which was the 14th August I have been the recipient of some unique blessings; I received that Grace which is every seekers ultimate goal; just a couple of days before my 53rd Birthday.

This physical structure which we call the human body is a store house for various requirements which a human needs to live in the world; roughly the physical, physiological, emotional, mental, spiritual… all processes encased in this structure held together with the various systems and skin and bones(sorry for this but I assure this is no lecture on biology). What I am trying to explain here is that this human body is the basic instrument we have been given to experience various truths in the outer living and also when trying to reach our spiritual goals.

What we do with this sacred physical structure, using it for whatever purpose is the free will granted to us by the creator. The highest use, according to what I believe in is to convert this body into a live temple for our God.

Here one would tend to think; so whats so special about this? Of course we all know that God does live in all living creatures, hence we all already have the Divine in us; so what is this big deal about?

Well ,this is about the ‘literal’; about creating that high level of purity in yourself that the Divine literally stays in this body, similarly to as He would in a stone idol in any mandir, like how we normally believe God Lives.

This is about that highest purity level when the Divine can use your body for HIS purpose and for HIS Rest.

This is about ‘God’s desire that HE wishes to use HIS bhakt’s body as HIS mandir’; which can ONLY happen with HIS Kripa and Blessings; when a bhakt has reached that level when God decides to Bless him with HIS highest Kripa:

“HIS LIVE PRESENCE”.

ShreeNathji painting at His Gaushala

 

So to continue about my being lucky:

“On this Janmashtmi, just a couple of days before my 53rd birthday I have been blessed with this high level of purity; where this body may be used as a living temple for the Divine. I have been granted the reward for following all the strict disciplines with the much needed courage and the lifestyle required for purity; also keeping faith in terms of one Form of God, one Path of spiritual practice and above all total shraddha in one Guru”.

This bhao and purity which is the requirement for inviting God to stay within is received as a Prasad from one’s Guru, who becomes like an agent between the disciples soul and the Super Soul. This year I am the lucky receiver for this SUPREME PRASAD from my Divine Gurushree, Pujya Sudhir Bhai.

Though no words are enough, I thank my Gurushree for this kripa and grace; though in his humility he never takes any credit; always saying that it is your naseeb and ShreeNathji’s Kripa that it has been possible.

This is Gurushree’s surrender to his God-ShreeNathji; who loves to Live and Play with him – His most beloved Bhakt.

I am today in total surrender to God ShreeNathji who had accepted to be my MAHAGURUSHREE many years back; and do not know how to thank HIM for all the plays of Divinity that HE has made me a part of.

All I can say today is; “Shreeji, Thank You for all Your Love and Kripa; I offer my self in totality to You, In my Mind, Body, Soul; I am surrendered to YOU!!
