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?

10th BAITHAK AT MANSI GANGA- SHRI GOVARDHAN

(This detail of the original varta about this Baithakji is taken from website: http://www.vallabhkankroli.org/)

This Baithakji is located at the foothills of Shri Govardhan.

Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhuji used to worship in the nearby area. Knowing that Shri Mahaprabhuji had arrived in the area, he approached him. Mansi Ganga had told Him that Shri Mahaprabhuji will be coming there and will fulfill all his desires. Then Mahaprabhuji sprinkled water into the eyes of Shri Krishna Chaitanya as well as over all the Vaishnavs around him. They all received spiritual insight and had the vision of the divine form of Mansi Ganga as being consisting of only milk. Everyone bathed in the divine lake. Soon after, the divine vision vanished.

Chakleshwar Mahadev (Shiva), daily came to listen to  Shri Mahaprabhuji.

It was here that a famous dialogue between Shri Mahaprabhuji and Shri Krishna Chaitanya took place. Shri Krishna Chaitanya said that in Kaliyug chanting of Lord’s name even for a moment will give you liberation. Shri Mahaprabhuji had a different view. He said that the Kaliyug is so bad that even if you miss to recite Lord’s name for a moment, you won’t be liberated.
