Vraj Mandal Jhanki-Fulfil longing For Drishy of Divine Bhumi-2

(A part of 21 post series)

Entry to Divine Vraj Bhumi is prohibited due to Covid-19 pandemic.

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 🙏

जहाँ श्री राधा कृष्ण लीला में डूब जाने को मन, शरीर, आत्मा और दिल करे, वो व्रज धाम, श्रीनाथजी ठाकुरजी की प्रिय लीला भूमि;
The photo says it all! The divine land yatra is never complete without at least one photo with beloved gaumata — at Mahalakshmi Mandir, Belvan, Vrindavan.

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

ShreeNathji Bhagwan’s Yatra..A poem

ShreeNathji

श्रीनाथजी की कृपा!

आँखों में अश्रु हैं..मन में आज प्रातःकाल से कुछ खलबली है!

कुछ भाव जो कविता के रूप में प्रस्तुत..
लम्बी हो गयी, पढ़ें ज़रूर 🙏

प्रभु श्रीनाथजी का प्राकट्य हुआ १४०९ 1409 गिरिराज कंदरा से-
५२३८ 5238 वर्ष बीतने पर, श्री राधाश्री कृष्ण एक बार फिर पधारे श्रीनाथजी स्वरूप में।

क़रीब २६० वर्ष गिरिराजजी पर व्रज वासीन से दिव्य लीला खेल करने के पश्चात,
१६६९ 1669 में श्रीनाथजी उठ चले प्रिय गिरिराज से,
एक भक्त को दिया वचन पूर्ण करने पहुँचे सिंहाड (नाथद्वारा) १६७२ 1672 में।

२ वर्ष, ४ महीने, ७ दिन वे रथ में चले,
इतना भाव था श्रीनाथजी का, अपनी भक्त और सखी अजबा के लिए;

जैसे श्री गुसाँई जी ने भविष्यवाणी करी थी, १६७२ में अटक गया (रुका) श्रीनाथजी का रथ मेवाड़ के एक पिपर के नीचे,
गंगाबाई से श्रीजी ने संदेश पहुँचाया;
“यह, मेरी प्रिय भक्त अजब की जगह है, बनाओ मेरी हवेली यहीं पर;
रहूँगा कई अरसे तक यहाँ,पूरा होगा मेरी प्रिय अजबा को दिया वचन,
तुम सब भी अवस्था अपनी करो यहीं अग़ल बग़ल।

हवेली बनी शानदार, एक दिव्य गोलोक ठाकुर बालक के लायक,
सभी व्यवस्था और सेवा, शुरू हुई, श्री गुसाँई जी के बताए अनुसार।

इतिहास बताता है, आख़िरी संवाद हुआ गंगा बाई के साथ।
शुशुप्त हो गयी शक्ति फिर-
बाहरी लीला खेल पृथ्वी वासी से शायद पूर्ण हो गए, प्रभु भी कुछ काल को भीतर समा गए।
सैकड़ों वर्ष यूँ ही बीते और एक बार फिर वक़्त आया दिव्य बालक श्रीनाथजी प्रभु के जागने का,
और गोलोक में मची हलचल;
भेजा अंश पृथ्वी लोक को इस आदेश के साथ, ‘जाओ लीला पूर्ण हो ऐसे करो श्रीजी की मदद’

अंश ख़ुद को पहचाने, फिर प्रभु को जागता है, ‘चलो ठाकुरजी समय आ गया, वापस हमें चलना है,
जल्दी जल्दी लीला पूर्ण कर लो, गोलोक को प्रस्थान करना है।

नन्हें से बालक हमारे प्यारे प्रभु श्रीजी जागे जो वर्षों से हो गए थे गुप्त!
“अरे, कहाँ गए मेरे नंद बाबा, यशोदा मैया, मुझे यहाँ छोड़ व्रज वासी सखा हो गए कहाँ लुप्त”?

अंश ने विनम्रता से समझाया, हाथ जोड़ प्रभु को याद दिलाया, ‘श्रीजी बाबा, समय आ गया गोलोक वापस पधारना है,
पृथ्वी के जो कार्य अधूरे हैं, पूर्ण कर वापस हमें चले जाना है’।

किंतु, नन्हें ठाकुरजी बाहर आकर रह गए आश्चर्य चकित;
” मेरी हवेली इतनी शानदार होती थी, ये क्या हुआ,
इतनी टूटी फूटी कैसे हो गयी, कितना अपवित्र वातावरण है!
और यह कौन पृथ्वी वासी हैं जो मेरे उपर दुकानें लगा कर बैठे हैं,
क्या लोग भूल गए अंदर किसका वास है”

श्रीनाथजी प्रभु को समझने में कुछ वक़्त लग गया,
और अंश को बताना ही पड़ा,
‘प्रभु कुछ भाव में कमी आ गयी है, इन्हें माफ़ कर दीजिए,
सूझ बूझ हर इंसान की लालच के कारण कम हो गयी है,
उन्हें उनके कर्मों पर छोड़ दीजिए;
हमें कई कार्य पूरे करने हैं उसमें आप हमारा मार्गदर्शन कीजिए’.

‘गिरिराज गोवर्धन कर रहा है आपका इंतज़ार,
लीला के शुशुप्त अंश सर झुकाए आपके दर्शन को तरस रहे हैं इतने साल;
श्रीजी, शुरू करो प्रस्थान,
ऐसा हमें तरीक़ा सुझाएँ किसी का ना हो नुक़सान’;

श्रीजी पहुँचे गिरिराज जी पर,
किंतु यह क्या!
“यहाँ भी यही हालात हैं, गोवर्धन को भी नहीं छोड़ा
इन पृथ्वी वासी ने मेरे गिरिराज को भी क़ब्ज़ा कर इतना अपवित्र कर दिया;
चलो, मेरे गोलोक अंश चलो, मैं तुम्हें बताता हूँ,
मुझे भी अब जल्द से जल्द पृथ्वी से प्रस्थान करना है,
व्रज वासी हो, या फिर नाथद्वारा वासी;
लालच ने आँख पे पर्दा डाल दिया है,
जब पवित्रता ही नहीं भाव में, यहाँ अब मेरी ज़रूरत नहीं;
इन्हें रुपया बटोरने दो; मुझे यहाँ से मुक्त कर मेरे गोलोक वापस ले चलो”।

🙏 आभा शाहरा श्यामा
श्रीजी प्रभु की सेवा में, हमेशा

श्रीनाथजी को ६११ (611) वर्ष बीत गए,
श्रीनाथजी बाबा हम पृथ्वी वासी पर कृपा करे हुए हैं!

An original Varta about ShreeNathji Prabhu – ‘Toad ka ghana’ (forest)

टोड के घने-श्रीनाथजी वार्ता
An original varta about ShreeNathji Prabhu – Toad ka ghana (forest)

संवत १५५२ श्रावण सुद तेरस बुधवार के दिन श्रीनाथजी टोड के घने पधारे थे:

कुंभनदासजी श्रीनाथजी की सेवा में नित्य कीर्तन करके श्रीनाथजी को रिझाते थे।श्रीनाथजी उनको अपना सानुभव जताते थे। वे साथ साथ खेलते रहते थे और बाते भी किया करते थे.
वार्ता :
थोड़े ही दिनोंमें एक यवन(Mughal kings)का उपद्रव इस विस्तारमें शुरू हुआ। वह सभी गांवोंको लूटमार करके पश्चिमसे आया। उसका पड़ाव श्री गिरिराजजीसे लगभग सात किलोमीटर दूर पड़ा था।
सदु पांडे, माणिकचंद पांडे, रामदासजी और कुंभनदासजी चारों ने विचार किया की यह यवन बहुत दुष्ट है और भगवद धर्म का द्वेषी है। अब हमें क्या करना चाहिये ?
यह चारों वैष्णव श्रीनाथजीके अंतरंग थे।
उनके साथ श्रीनाथजी बाते किया करते थे। उन्होंने मंदिरमें जाकर श्रीनाथजी को पूछा कि महाराज अब हम क्या करें ? धर्म का द्वेषी यवन लूटता चला आ रहा है। अब आप जो आज्ञा करें हम वैसा करेंगें।

श्रीनाथजीने आज्ञा करी कि हमें टोंड के घने में पधारने की इच्छा है वहां हमें ले चलो। तब उन्होंने पूछा कि महाराज इस समय कौन सी सवारी पर चले? तब श्रीनाथजी ने आज्ञा करी, “सदु पांडे के घर जो पाडा है उसे ले आओ। मैं उसके ऊपर चढ़कर चलुंगा”।
सदु पाण्डे उस पाड़ा को लेकर आये. श्रीनाथजी उस पाड़ा पर चढ़कर पधारें। श्रीनाथजी को एक तरफ से रामदासजी थांभ कर चल रहे थे और दूसरी तरफ सदु पांडे थांभ कर चल रहे थे.
कुंभनदास और माणिकचंद वे दोऊ आगे चलकर मार्ग बताते रहते थे।

टोंड के घने में एक चौतरा है और छोटा सा तालाब भी है। एक वर्तुलाकार चौक के पास आके रामदासजी और कुंभनदासजी ने श्रीनाथजी को पूछा, “आप कहाँ बिराजेंगे”?
तब श्रीनाथजीने आज्ञा करी कि हम चौतरे पर बिराजेंगे। श्रीनाथजी को पाड़े पर बिठाते समय जो गादी बिछायी थी उसी गादी को इस चौतरे पर बिछा दी गई और श्रीनाथजी को उस पर पधराये.

चतुरा नागा नाम के एक विरक्त भगवद भक्त थे वे टोड के घने में तपस्या किया करता थे। वे गिरिराजजी पर कभी अपना पैर तक नहीं रखते थे।
मानों उस चतुरा नागा को ही दर्शन देनेके लिए ही श्रीनाथजी पाडा पर चढ़कर टोंड की इस झाड़ी में पधारें,
चतुरा नागा ने श्रीनाथजी के दर्शन करके बड़ा उत्सव मनाया। बन मे से किंकोडा चुटकर इसकी सब्जी और आटे का हलवा (सीरा) बनाकर श्रीनाथजी को भोग समर्पित किया।

दूसरी वार्ता:
इसके बारे में दूसरा उल्लेख यह भी है कि श्रीनाथजी ने रामदासजीको आज्ञा करी कि तुम भोग धरकर दूर खड़े रहो।
तब श्री रामदासजी और कुंभनदासजी सोचने लगे कि किसी व्रज भक्त तके मनोरथ पूर्ण करने हेतु यह लीला हो रही है।
रामदासजी ने थोड़ी सामग्री का भोग लगाया तब श्रीनाथजी ने कहा कि सभी सामग्री धर दो।
श्री रामदासजी दो सेर आटा का सीरा बनाकर लाये थे उन्होंने भोग धर दिया।
रामदासजी ने जताया कि अब हम इधर ठहरेंगें तो क्या करेंगें ? तो श्रीनाथजी ने कहा कि तुमको यहाँ रहना नहीं है।
कुम्भनदास, सदु पांडे, माणिक पांडे और रामदासजी ये चारों जन झाड़ी की ओट के पास बैठे।
तब निकुंजके भीतर श्री स्वामिनीजीने अपने हाथोंसे मनोरथ की सामग्री बनाकर श्रीनाथजी के पास पधारे और भोग धरे।
श्रीनाथजी ने अपने मुख से कुंभनदासको आज्ञा करी,“कुंभनदास इस समय ऐसा कोई कीर्तन गा तो मेरा मन प्रसन्न होने पावे। मै सामग्री आरोंगु और तु कीर्तन गा”।
श्री कुम्भनदासने अपने मनमें सोचा कि प्रभुको कोई हास्य प्रसंग सुननेकी इच्छा है ऐसा लगता है।
कुंभनदास आदि चारों वैष्णव भूखे भी थे और कांटें भी बहुत लगे थे इस लिये कुंभनदासने यह पद गाया :
राग : सारंग
“भावत है तोहि टॉडको घनो ।
कांटा लगे गोखरू टूटे फाट्यो है सब तन्यो ।।१।।
सिंह कहां लोकड़ा को डर यह कहा बानक बन्यो ।
‘कुम्भनदास’ तुम गोवर्धनधर वह कौन रांड ढेडनीको जन्यो ।।२।।

यह पद सुनकर श्रीनाथजी एवं श्री स्वामिनीजी अति प्रसन्न हुए। सभी वैष्णव भी प्रसन्न हुए।

बादमें मालाके समय कुंभनदासजीने यह पद गाया :
बोलत श्याम मनोहर बैठे…
राग : मालकौंश
बोलत श्याम मनोहर बैठे, कमलखंड और कदम्बकी छैयां
कुसुमनि द्रुम अलि पीक गूंजत, कोकिला कल गावत तहियाँ ।। 1 ।।

सूनत दूतिका के बचन माधुरी, भयो हुलास तन मन महियाँ ।
कुंभनदास ब्रज जुवति मिलन चलि, रसिक कुंवर गिरिधर पहियाँ ।। 2 ।।

यह पद सुनकर श्रीनाथजी स्वयं अति प्रसन्न हुए। बादमें श्री स्वामिनीजी ने श्रीनाथजी को पूछा, “आप यहाँ किस प्रकार से पधारें”? श्रीनाथजी ने कहा, “हम सदु पांडेके घर जो पाड़ा था उस पर चढ़कर हम पधारे हैं”।
श्रीनाथजी के इस वचन सुनकर स्वामिनीजीने उस पाड़ा की ओर दृष्टि करके कृपा करके बोलीं, “कि यह तो हमारे बाग़ की मालन है। वह हमारी अवज्ञा से पाड़ा बनी है पर आज आपकी सेवा करके उसके अपराध की निवृत्ति हो गई”।

इसी तरह नाना प्रकारे केली करके टोड के घने से श्री स्वामिनी जी बरसाना पधारें।
बादमें श्रीनाथजी ने सभी को जो झाड़ी की ओट के पास बैठे थे उनको बुलाया और सदु पांडे को आज्ञा करी कि अब जा कर देखो कि उपद्रव कम हुआ ?
सदु पांडे टोड के घनेसे बाहर आये इतने मे ही समाचार आये कि यवन की फ़ौज तो वापिस चली गई है। यह समाचार सदु पांडे ने श्रीनाथजी को सुनाया और बिनती की कि यवन की फ़ौज तो भाग गई है तब श्रीनाथजी ने कहा कि अब हमें गिरिराज पर मंदिरमें पधरायें।

इसी प्रकारे आज्ञा होते ही श्रीनाथजी को पाड़े पर बैठा के श्री गिरिराज पर्वत पर मंदिर में पधराये।
यह पाड़ा गिरिराज पर्वत से उतर कर देह छोड़कर पुन: लीलाको प्राप्त हुआ।
सभी ब्रजवासी मंदिरमें श्रीनाथजीके दर्शन करके बहुत प्रसन्न हुए और बोले की धन्य है देवदमन ! जिनके प्रतापसे यह उपद्रव मिट गया।

इस तरह संवत १५५२ श्रावण सुदी तेरस को बुधवार के दिन चतुरा नागाका मनोरथ सिद्ध करके पुन: श्रीनाथजी गिरिराजजी पर पधारें।

यह पाड़ा अनंत लीला में कौन था:
यह पाड़ा दैवी जीव था। लीला में वो श्री वृषभानजी के बगीचा की मालन थी। लीला में उसका नाम वृंदा है।
नित्य फूलोंकी माला बनाकर श्री वृषभानजी के घर लाती थी।
एक दिन श्री स्वामिनीजी बगीचा में पधारें तब वृंदा के पास एक बेटी थी उसको वे खिलाती रही थी। उसने न तो उठकर स्वामिनी जी को दंडवत किये कि न तो कोई समाधान किया।
फिर भी स्वामिनीजी ने उसको कुछ नहीं कहा। उसके बाद श्री स्वामिनीजी ने आज्ञा की के तुम श्री नंदरायजी के घर जाकर श्री ठाकोरजीको संकेत करके हमारे यहां पधारने के लिए कहो; तो वृंदा ने कहा की अभी मुझे मालाजी सिद्ध करके श्री वृषभानजी को भेजनी है तो मैं नहीं जाऊँगी.
ऐसा सुनकर श्री स्वामिनीजीने कहा, “मैं जब आई तब उठकर सन्मान भी न किया और एक काम करने को कहा वो भी नहीं किया। इस प्रकार तुम यह बगीचा के लायक नहीं हो। तू यहाँ से भुतल पर पड़ और पाडा बन जा”।

इसी प्रकार का श्राप उसको दिया तब वह मालन श्री स्वामिनीजी के चरणारविन्दमें जा कर गिर पडी और बहुत स्तुति करने लगी और कहा कि आप मेरे पर कृपा करों जिससे मैं यहां फिर आ सकुं।
तब स्वामिनीजी ने कृपा करके कहा की जब तेरे पर चढ़कर श्री ठाकुरजी बन में पधारेंगें तभी तेरा अंगीकार होगा।
इसी प्रकार वह मालन सदु पांडे के घर में पाड़ा हुई और जब श्रीनाथजी उस पर बेठ कर वन में पधारे तब वो पुन: लीलाको प्राप्त हुई.

जय श्रीनाथजी ठाकुरजी 🙏
जय श्री राधे कृष्ण 🙏

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,

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.

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.

When guru ji told ki abha ji mein darshan karo, I saw Glittering golden n silver light coming out of your forehead and Shree ji swaroop was on that.

Aap ko mera barm baar pranaam. As guru ji was telling all this i felt Shree ji was present in him  When ever i rewind my memory,  it was Shree ji  who was giving instructions in gurujis swaroop. koti koti pranaam to gurushree.

Manoj Sharma:

Jai shree krishn abha ji.

We are there in nij mahal.

I felt very positive energies there.

My mind was totally calm and no thoughts were coming in the mind .

When guru ji told we will feel Shreejis presence, I saw a web in front of me and it was full of bright peacock colour.

Secondly i got darshan of gau mata on Abha jis forehead  when she was sitting in the centre .

Shreeji in his lalan swaroop was also present there.

My total exprience was presence of positive energies

We always talk about our this wonderful  tour which is very close to our heart .

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

ShreeNathji Mandir on Giriraj Govardhan

ShreeNathji Mandir on Shri Govardhan: A Panoramic view.

00

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.

1a

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-Time to return to Vraj Mandal?

Shreeji has been on this earth for total of 605 years; and 342 years at Nathdwara , as in 2014 AD

From 1672 AD till today, 2014 AD, ShreeNathji has been in Nathdwara. It has been to fulfill His commitment to His dear bhakt Ajab Kunwari, a Rajput Queen.

His stay here at Nathdwara is  nearly coming to an end, and He maybe getting ready to return to His most favorite place, Braj Dham!

Shreeji has been on this earth for total of 605 years; from which 342 years have been at Nathdwara.

From 1672 AD till now in 2014 AD, ShreeNathji has been in Nathdwara. This stay has been for fulfilling His commitment to His dear bhakt and friend Ajab Kunwari, a Rajput Queen.

His stay here at Nathdwara is  nearly coming to an end, and He maybe is getting ready to return to His most favorite place, Giriraj Gowardhan on Braj Dham!

Here are listed some important dates in Thakurjee ShreeNathji’s Leela.

I have tried to put it as a image, so it becomes easy to read and remember. Details on the various years are already on our website for Shreeji:

    “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.
