ShreeNathji-MahaPrabhuji Baithakji at Radha Kund

ShreeNathji-MahaPrabhuji 9th Baithakji at Radha Kund, Shri Govardhan:

At Radha kund there are Baithaks: Shri Vallab Acharya, His son Shri Vitthalnathji Gusainji, His son, Shri Gokulnathji. Very rare to find all the there baithaks at one place.

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); sewa is done of Gaddi (Seating).

Baithaks are a very important pilgrim place for all Pushtimarg bhakts, as Shri Vallabhacharya is their primary Guru.

Here are some pictures displayed from my visit to the 9th  Baithak of Mahaprabhuji, which is located at Radha Kund at Shri Govardhan, Mathura.

There are two kunds (lakes) here. Radha Kund and Krushna Kund.

Radha dug out her kund (lake) with her fingernails (Radha Kund). Krishna  dug his kund (lake) with his flute. They are both internally connected. There are additional eight kunds of eight sakhis (friends of Radha) situated around here.

Shri Mahaprabhuji had seen Shri Radha and Krishna walking hand in hand into the Goverdhan mountain. Shri Mahaprabhuji approached the divine couple. He was ordered to accompany them.

Three days later he returned to this place and found his disciples in unconscious state. He sprinkled holy water all over his disciples and they all gained consciousness.

17th BAITHAK at GAHAVAR VAN

Gahavarvan is an area with deep forests.

The famous story of Cobra and Ants is associated with this place.

Once Shri Mahaprabhuji was taking a walk with his disciples and saw a cobra with thousands of ants biting it. Shri Mahaprabhuji gave the following explanation:

Cobra-snake was a Guru in Vrindavan in its past life, who made disciples for money, did not worship the Lord and lived a selfish life. These ants were all its disciples. They are taking revenge in this life for ruining their previous lives by making them followers and not guiding them properly.

Shri Mahaprabhuji threw some sacred water over the snake and ants. They all became liberated and went to heaven in a celestial chariots.

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.
