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

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 🙏

Jai Shree RadheKrishn 🙏

Jai ShreeNathji Prabhu 🙏

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

Here are some pictures displayed from my visit to the 22nd Baithak of Mahaprabhuji, located at Maan Sarovar,opposite Yamunaji, Maant, Mathura, Vraj Mandal.

Baithakji Charitr: (बैठकजी चरित्र)

Shri Mahaprabhu Vallabhachayra stayed for three days at Maan Sarovar discussing the Shrimad Bhagavat.

Once, Damala awoke in the middle of the night and noticed that his guru was missing.

A few hours later, Shree Krishn appeared before Damala who exclaimed, “Today I am certainly blessed to have your supreme vision. “

Shree Krishn than told Damala, “Today, Shrew Radha has become very displeased with me.”

Later, Shree Radha came to meet Thakurjee and Their reuinon was re established.

Damala and Shri Mahaprabhuji had the sight of this divine pastime. All of this transpired while the other Vaishnavas were deep in sleep.

ShreeNathji-Kesar Snan

Kesar Snan at ShreeNathji mandir-ज्येष्ठाभिषेक (स्नान-यात्रा)

ज्येष्ठ शुक्ल पूर्णिमा

Monday, 17 June 2019

आज ज्येष्ठाभिषेक है जिसे केसर स्नान अथवा स्नान-यात्रा भी कहा जाता है.

Shreenathjibhakti.org

Kesar Snan@ShreeNathji

श्री नंदरायजी ने श्री ठाकुरजी का राज्याभिषेक कर उनको व्रज राजकुंवर से व्रजराज के पद पर आसीन किया, यह उसका उत्सव है.

आज के दिन ही ज्येष्ठाभिषेक स्नान का भाव एवं सवालक्ष आम अरोगाये जाने का भाव ये हे की यह स्नान ज्येष्ठ मास में चन्द्र राशि के ज्येष्ठा नक्षत्र में होता है और सामान्यतया ज्येष्ठ शुक्ल पूर्णिमा को होता है.

इसी भाव से स्नान-अभिषेक के समय वेदमन्त्रों-पुरुषसूक्त का वाचन किया जाता है. वेदोक्त उत्सव होने के कारण सर्वप्रथम शंख से स्नान कराया जाता है.

ऐसा भी कहा जाता है कि व्रज में ज्येष्ठ मास में पूरे माह श्री यमुनाजी के पद, गुणगान, जल-विहार के मनोरथ आदि हुए. इसके उद्यापन स्वरुप आज प्रभु को सवालक्ष आम अरोगा कर पूर्णता की.

श्रीजी प्रभु वर्ष में विविध दिनों में चारों धाम के चारों स्वरूपों का आनंद प्रदान करते हैं.

आज ज्येष्ठाभिषेक स्नान में प्रभु श्रीजी दक्षिण के धाम रामेश्वरम (शिव स्वरूप) के भावरूप में वैष्णवों को दर्शन देते हैं जिसमें प्रभु के जूड़े (जटा) का दर्शन होता है

इसी प्रकार आगामी रथयात्रा के दिन भगवान जगन्नाथ के रूप में प्रभु भक्तों पर आनंद वर्षा करेंगे.

आज कैसे सेवा की जाती है :

पर्व रुपी उत्सव होने के कारण श्रीजी मंदिर के सभी मुख्य द्वारों की देहरी (देहलीज) को पूजन कर हल्दी से लीपी जाती हैं एवं आशापाल की सूत की डोरी की वंदनमाल बाँधी जाती हैं.

झारीजी में सभी समय यमुनाजल भरा जाता है. चारों समय (मंगला, राजभोग, संध्या व शयन) की आरती थाली में की जाती है.

गेंद, दिवाला, चौगान आदि सभी चांदी के आते हैं.

आज मंगला दर्शन में श्रीजी को प्रतिदिन की भांति श्वेत आड़बंद धराया जाता है.

मंगला आरती के उपरांत खुले दर्शनों में ही टेरा ले लिया जाता है और अनोसर के सभी आभरण व प्रभु का आड़बंद बड़ा (हटा) कर केशर की किनारी से सुसज्जित श्वेत धोती, गाती का पटका एवं स्वर्ण के सात आभरण धराये जाते हैं.

इस उपरांत टेरा हटा लिया जाता है और प्रभु का ज्येष्ठाभिषेक प्रारंभ हो जाता है.

सर्वप्रथम ठाकुरजी को कुंकुम से तिलक व अक्षत किया जाता है. तुलसी समर्पित की जाती है.

तिलकायत जी अथवा उपस्थित गौस्वामी बालक स्नान का संकल्प लेते हैं और रजत चौकी पर चढ़कर मंत्रोच्चार, शंखनाद, झालर, घंटा आदि की मधुर ध्वनि के मध्य पिछली रात्रि के अधिवासित केशर-बरास युक्त जल से प्रभु का अभिषेक करते हैं.

सर्वप्रथम शंख से ठाकुरजी को स्नान कराया जाता है और इस दौरान पुरुषसूक्त गाये जाते हैं. पुरुषसूक्त पाठ पूर्ण होने पर स्वर्ण कलश में जल भरकर 108 बार प्रभु को स्नान कराया जाता है. इस अवधि में ज्येष्ठाभिषेक स्नान के कीर्तन गाये जाते हैं.

स्नान का कीर्तन – (राग-बिलावल)

मंगल ज्येष्ठ जेष्ठा पून्यो करत स्नान गोवर्धनधारी l

दधि और दूब मधु ले सखीरी केसरघट जल डारत प्यारी ll 1 ll

सखियन यूथयूथ मिलि छिरकत गावत तान तरंगन भारी l

केशो किशोर सकल सुखदाता श्रीवल्लभनंदनकी बलिहारी ll 3 ll

स्नान में लगभग आधा घंटे का समय लगता है और लगभग डेढ़ से दो घंटे तक दर्शन खुले रहते हैं.

दर्शन पश्चात श्रीजी मंदिर के पातलघर की पोली पर कोठरी वाले के द्वारा वैष्णवों को स्नान का जल वितरित किया जाता है.

मंगला दर्शन उपरांत श्रीजी को श्वेत मलमल का केशर के छापा वाला पिछोड़ा और श्रीमस्तक पर सफ़ेद कुल्हे के ऊपर तीन मोरपंख की चन्द्रिका की जोड़ धराये जाते हैं.

मंगला दर्शन के पश्चात मणिकोठा और डोल तिबारी को जल से खासा कर वहां आम के भोग रखे जाते हैं. इस कारण आज श्रृंगार व ग्वाल के दर्शन बाहर नहीं खोले जाते.

गोपीवल्लभ (ग्वाल) भोग में आज श्रीजी को विशेष रूप से मेवाबाटी व दूधघर में सिद्ध की गयी केसर युक्त बासोंदी की हांडी अरोगायी जाती है.

राजभोग में अनसखड़ी में दाख (किशमिश) का रायता अरोगाया जाता है.

सखड़ी में घोला हुआ सतुवा, श्रीखण्ड भात, दहीभात, मीठी सेव, केशरयुक्त पेठा व खरबूजा की कढ़ी अरोगाये जाते हैं.

गोपीवल्लभ (ग्वाल) में ही उत्सव भोग भी रखे जाते हैं जिसमें खरबूजा के बीज और चिरोंजी के लड्डू, दूधघर में सिद्ध मावे के पेड़ा-बरफी, दूधपूड़ी, बासोंदी, जीरा मिश्रित दही, केसरी-सफेद मावे की गुंजिया, घी में तला हुआ चालनी का सूखा मेवा, विविध प्रकार के संदाना (आचार) के बटेरा, विविध प्रकार के फलफूल, शीतल के दो हांडा, चार थाल अंकुरी (अंकुरित मूंग) आदि अरोगाये जाते हैं.

इसके अतिरिक्त आज ठाकुरजी को अंकूरी (अंकुरित मूंग) एवं फल में आम, जामुन का भोग अरोगाने का विशेष महत्व है.

मैंने पूर्व में भी बताया था कि अक्षय तृतीया से रथयात्रा तक प्रतिदिन संध्या-आरती में प्रभु को बारी-बारी से जल में भीगी (अजवायन युक्त) चने की दाल, भीगी मूँग दाल व तीसरे दिन अंकुरित मूँग (अंकूरी) अरोगाये जाते हैं.

इस श्रृंखला में आज विशेष रूप से ठाकुरजी को छुकमां मूँग (घी में पके हुए व नमक आदि मसाले से युक्त) अरोगाये जाते हैं.

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 🙏

Shri Vallabhacharya was born in the VS 1535 or AD1478.

195720_133892418783_5790184_n

It was on Vaishak Vad Giyaras (11th) in Vikram Samvat 1535, or AD 1478; in Satbhisha Nakshatra on a Thursday; during the Abhijit mahurat, 12.40-1.00 in the afternoon; when ShreeNathji’s Lotus Face Appeared from Govardhan to give His divya Darshan to the lucky people of the village; According to Shree Krishn’s desire, on the same day but in the Abhijit mahurat, 12.40-1.00 at night, Shree Vallabhacharya also appeared at Champaran in a ring of fire.

(Details of his life and teachings, can be read on my website:

8th Baithakji at BahulaVan

bahulavan-ki-bethak-250x250

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

At Bahulavan, Shri Mahaprabhuji stayed three days giving discourses on the Srimad Bagavatam

This is the fourth Van of the Vraj area, in the village of Bathi.

Krishn Kund is also located here

Here there are temples of Bahulabihariji and Bahula cow.

A story of Bahula cow can be found in Padma Puran:

Once Dharmaraja, in the form of a lion, visited this jungle to kill cows. All the cows except Bahula had escaped at the sight of this lion. Lion wanted to kill Bahula. She requested him to wait till she can go and feed her child. She promised him to return after that. She did return. Impressed with her honesty and truthfulness, lion revealed his true identity of Dharmaraja. When the cow died the people of this village started worshipping her by installing a stone statue of this cow.

The Muslim King of this area prohibited them from worshipping this cow. The king proclaimed that worship could only be commenced when the cow would actually eat grass. During his visit to this place, Shri Mahaprabhuji was informed about this prohibition. Shri Mahaprabhuji invited the king and showed to him the stone Bahula cow partaking of the offered grass. The king was amazed and became disciple of Shri Mahaprabhuji. In his next life this king was born as Meha Dhemar.

Amongst the Vraj’s 12 ‘ Vans’, this ‘ Van’ ranks fourth. Under the tree of ‘ Vadh’, this Baithakji is situated. Also beside it a cow named ‘ Bahula’ rests.

In this Baithakji, Vraj’s Muslim Suba was shown an astonishing miracle by Shri Mahaprabhuji.

4th BAITHAK AT BANSHIVAT-VRINDAVAN

Bethakji - 4

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

At Vrindavan, Prabhdas Jalota would not take the prasad offered to him because he had not taken the bath. Mahaprabhuji recited him the shloka which said,” In Vrindavan, Lord Krishna plays His flute under every tree and resides in His four-armed form within every leaf. In such a sacred land the dust is purifying.” Hearing this description, Prabhudas partook the prasad before taking his bath.

Gopaldas, a disciple of Krishna Chaitanyahad had a Deity of Shaligram. He desired a Deity which he could decorate with clothes and jewels. Shri Krishnachaitanya told him in dream, “ I do not have the right to give you one, and only Shri Mahaprabhuji has that right. When Mahaprabhuji arrived in Vrindavan, Gopaldas prayed to Him for deity. Shri Mahaprabhuji told him, “ If your sentiment is pure, then the Shaligram will be transformed into image of Lord Krishna. Lord Himself will accommodate everything. In the morning you will see the Shaligram being transformed.”  The following morning his Shaligram became transformed into the swaroop of Radha Ramanj. This was due to the grace of Mahaprabhuji!

In his next birth, Gopaldas became a renowned devotee of Pushti Marg, Gopal Naga.
