So please help to spread the Arti darshans to all Vaishnavs)

Details of ShreeNathji Mukharvind at Jatipura, Shri Govardhan

Shreeji lives in Vraj at Mathura on Giriraj Govardhan. His Mukharvind mandir is at the base Girirajji, the place of His Pragatya.

This Govardhan Shila is also known as the Shringar Sthali – The Mukharvind of Giriraj Govardhan; according to the Vallabh Sampraday. Annakut Pujan is held here every year. Hundreds of bhakts visit daily and worship with milk and flowers etc. Many begin their parikrama of Giriraj Govardhan from this point.

This Sthal is very very Alive with the Divine vibrations and energy.

Shreeji does Shayan here for six months every year. (Vasant Panchmi to Dassehra).

After the Sandhya Aarti at His Nathdwara Mandir, He comes at the Mukharvind Mandir on Shri Govardhan to give Shayan Darshans. During this period, His Presence is very Live and can be felt by the receptive bhakts; so once the Shringar is complete no photography is allowed. Before this photographs can be taken.

The Mukharvind of Shreeji is decorated and worshipped every evening. It is believed to be Alive with His presence.

Jatipura was originally known as Yatipura. Shri Vallabh Achary lived on this side of Girirajji as he found it easier to climb up for Shreeji’ seva. In that time period it wa like a jungle, only the Anyor side was inhabited with few villages. Another name for a sadhu or sant is ‘Yati’, and anyone looking for Shri Vallabh was directed here, and people soon began calling it the place where the ‘Yati’ resides; hence the name Jatipura. In Vraj bhasha ‘Y’ is pronounced as ‘J’.

The 14th Baithakji is located in front of the Mukharvind. It was from here that Shri Vallabh narrated the Bhagwadji to Girirajji.

Sthapan of Shreeji Mukharvind is just 100-150 year ago (as per the sevaks).

Jai Shreeji!

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.

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 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-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.

Save Vraj Mandal-Stop the use of Plastic

“VRAJ MANDAL”

This is a post written in Hindi, as it needs to reach out to the locals and majority of bhakts speak and read Hindi, our National language. It is an appeal from this Vraj lover to take some immediate measures. It talks about the filth and plastic that has become a second layer on this sacred land of ShreeNathji, Shree RadhaKrishn.

श्री राधा कृष्ण, श्रीनाथजी की पवित्र लीला भूमि:

” व्रज के प्रेमी, व्रज मंडल को बचाना आपके हाथ में है”

श्री राधा कृष्ण, श्रीनाथजी की पवित्र लीला भूमि में आपका स्वागत है।
आप यहाँ आए हैं, आपको व्रज के हर शुभ चिन्तक का प्रणाम।

(आपसे विनती है, कृपया पूरा पोस्ट पढ़िए, और सहमत हैं तो औरों तक पहुँचाने में मदद करिये. अपने विचार कमेंट्स में जरूर शेयर करिये).
इस पवित्र लीला भूमि पर जो भी आते है, वह चाहे किसी भी मनोरथ से आते हो, कुछ आशीर्वाद लेकर ही लौटते है।
किंतु, आज के कलियुग में, हम जो दर्शन के लिए, कुछ पाने की लालसा से, इस पवित्र लीला भूमि में पैर रखते हैं, यहाँ के लिए दुखदायक हो रहा है।

ग़लत मत समझिए; मेरा सही मतलब कृपा कर के  आगे पढ़िए।

“इस पवित्र भूमि पर अपवित्रता कुछ ज्यादा ही बढ़ रही है।

पवित्र शक्तियाँ को हम मजबूर कर रहे हैं, की आप यहाँ से निकल जाइए”.

– क्योंकि, सर्वप्रथम बात यह  है, कि यहाँ ज्यादा भक्त आ रहे हैं (जो कि बहुत ही अच्छी बात है), लेकिन दुर्भाग्य से इस प्रदेश की सरकार यहाँ की प्रगति नहीं चाहती, इसलिए सुविधा नहीं बढ़ा रही हैं।

कचरा कूड़ा का ढेर हर गली में इखट्टा है। कहीं भी कूड़ादान की सुविधा नहीं दी है। सफ़ाई के लिए प्रशासन अपना काम नहीं कर रही हैं।

Blog-Help Braj Dham
लेकिन आप ज़रूर मदद कर सकते हैं, की जब यहाँ आयें तो प्लास्टिक और थेरमोकोल का इस्तेमाल ही ना करें। दुकानदार से प्लास्टिक लेने से मना कर दें।

DSC_0203
जब मैंने सफ़ाई करवाने की कोशिश की तो यह तथ्य सामने आया की व्रज मंडल की पवित्र भूमि में ६ इंच तक यह प्लास्टिक अंदर धँस गया है। झाड़ू लगाते रहो, तो भीतर से प्लास्टिक निकलता ही जाता है। कुछ साल और ऐसे ही होता रहा तो आप को साफ़ सुथरी व्रज की रज कहीं नहीं मिलेगी।

3-DSC02828 (2)4 _DSC26835 _DSC2676
– यहाँ पर बहुत ज़्यादा बिल्डिंग सोसायटी और टाउन शिप का निर्माण हो रहा है; जिस कारण से प्राचीन लीला भूमि के पेड़ और पशु पक्षी से उनकी जगह छिन गई है।

भक्तों से विनती है, अगर आप सिर्फ़ इन्वेस्टमेंट के लिए पैसा लगा रहे हैं, तो कृपया रुक कर फिर से विचार कीजिये. अगर यहाँ रहने का विचार नहीं है तो, व्यर्थ में फ़्लैट मत लीजिय। यहाँ बहुत अच्छे आश्रम और होटेल बने हैं, उनमें अच्छी सुविधा है, वहाँ रह सकते हैं।

अगर ख़रीददार ही नहीं होंगे तो प्राचीन वन को, काटकर यह व्यर्थ की इमारतें खड़ी करना बंद हो जाएगा।

_DSC0052_DSC0054

बिल्डर्स और प्रशासन मिलकर इस भूमि की काफ़ी तबाही कर चुके हैं, अगर अभी भी नहीं रुका तो आपको कोई प्राचीन पेड़ दिखाई ही नहीं देंगे ।

व्रज मंडल को दिव्य माना गया है, और यहाँ के वन और पेड़ो को दिव्य मानते हैं और उनकी पूजा करते हैं। श्री राधा कृष्ण की दिव्य लीला इन्ही वन में रची थीं, जिन्हें आज स्थानीय अधिकारी  बिल्डर्स  के साथ मिलकर कुछ पैसे के लालच में तबाह कर रहे हैं।

वे जानते ही नहीं की उनके लालच ने भक्तों से क्या छीन लिया है, क्योंकि उनमें भक्ति भाव नहीं है।
– प्रशासन ने हर दिव्य भूमि से लग कर, सफ़ाई करने वालों का गाँव बसा दिया है।

उन्हें हर तरह की सुविधा और खेती के लिए मुफ़्त भूमि भी प्रशासन की तरफ़ से मिली है।

जैसा कि हमें लोकल संतों ने बताया, इन गाँवों को बसाया था लीला भूमि की सफ़ाई करने के लिए। लेकिन प्रशासन उन को सुविधा देकर जाँच करना ही भूल गयी कि वह अपना काम करते हैं या नहीं।
इन की औरतें ने जंगल काटना अपना अधिकार समझ लिया, और बहुत ही प्राचीन पेड़ काट रही है घर में चूल्हा जलाने के लिए। अगर उन्हें कोई संत, या भक्त रोकने की कोशिश करता है, तो इन महिलाओं को अधिकार मिला है प्रशासन की ओर से;  वह पोलिस में शिकायत करे, और बिना सुनवाई के उस व्रज के भक्त को जेल में डाल दिया जाता है।
इस कारण से व्रज के भक्त लाचारी से व्रज का नाश होते देख ख़ामोश रह जाते हैं। क्योंकि प्रशासन में उनकी सुनवाई नहीं होगी।
इन गांववालों ने अपने बच्चों को सिखा दिया है, भीक माँगना। तो आप किसी भी स्थल पे जाइए, इनके बच्चों का झुंड आपको एक पल भी शांति से प्रार्थना नहीं करने देंगे। मुफ़्त स्कूल भी नहीं जाना चाहते हैं यह बच्चे।

– तीर्थ स्थल के भिखारी भगुए वस्त्र पहन कर अच्छी ख़ासी कमाई करते हैं।

बहुत ही आसानी से कमाई हो जाती है, और आराम का जीवन बिताते है।  ज़्यादातर सभी साधू भिखारी और छोटे बच्चे भिकारी, बीड़ी, चरस, गाँजा फूँकते हुए मिलेंगे। यहाँ के बच्चों को कामचोर मत बनाइये.
आप को सोच समझ कर दान करना चाहिए। पात्रता देखकर दान करिए।

तीर्थ स्थल, आराम की कमाई के स्थल होते जा रहे हैं।

इसलिए आप सभी व्रज भक्तों से हाथ जोड़ कर विनम्र प्रार्थना करती हूँ,
तीर्थ स्थल को पिकनिक स्पॉट नहीं बनाइए। इस लीला भूमि की पवित्रता आप के हाथ में है, इसे बनाय रखने में आपका सहयोग ज़रूरी है। प्रशासन के भरोसे पर तो व्रज मण्डल का विनाश हो रहा है।

12 DSC06281

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

Wake up Vraj Vasisis and Vaishnavs!

This photo is from your favorite most sacred Giriraj Govardhan!

You are not even allowed to climb on this most sacred Parvat; and if you do then you have to ask for forgiveness. The local Pundas here keep shouting at you if you even step close by mistake with your shoes or socks on. But these same Pandas turn a blind eye to this filth created by them only. Pictures speak more then any words I could have written. Wake up. Stop giving these local Pundas any dakshina till they realize their responsibility. They have become accustomed to loving in free, no matter what they do or dont do.

The most sacred parvat, Shri Govardhan is also drowing in plastic. This photo is from the Anyor side of the Girirajji.

ShreeNathji enjoys sports day at a school.

ShreeNathji – His ” LIVE” interactions Varta in today’s time period

श्रीनाथजी से दिव्य  वार्तालाप आज के ज़माने मैं..

ShreeNathji enjoys sports day at a school.

श्रीनाथजी, “मैं ६ बजे तेरे यहाँ आ गया और मेरी छवि मैं बैठ गया था, फिर जल्दी से भागा और उसके साथ गाडी में बैठ गया”…

1st November 2006

It is my child’s sports day today.
She has always been a very good athlete, and is excited, though a little nervous. She has to leave very early for the sports ground. Before leaving she prays to ShreeNathji for His blessings. (Shreeji’s large Chavi is in our living room and we pass it always when leaving the house).

As I am not going with her, I call my dear close friend, Millie who would be there at the sports ground, and request her to keep me posted about happenings at the races. Few hours into the event I receive her call, saying that my child has won gold in all the events. She won five gold medals in athletics this year.

As the varta goes:

A day earlier to the sports day, I had called up my Gurushree, Shri Sudhirbhai, asking for blessings for my child; so now I call up to inform him about her accomplishments.

Gurushree, is delighted and I hear him thanking ShreeNathji also.

Later that same night I have this very incredible vivid conversation with ShreeNathji Himself who describes His version of the sports event!

Writing it exactly as it went:

श्रीजी मुझसे कहेते हैं, “कल जब तुम सुधीर से फ़ोन पर बात कर रही थी मैं सुधीर के पास ही था. मैंने उसको पूछा की ये स्पोर्ट्स डे क्या होता है? आभा क्या बात कर रही है?
Shreeji tells me, “Yesterday, when you were talking to Sudhir on the phone, I was there with him. I asked him what sports day means. What is Abha talking about?

श्रीजी आगे बताते हैं, “तो सुधीर ने मुझे समझाया की स्कूल के बच्चों की प्रतियोगिता होती है, और मुझसे पूछा की आप वहां जाकर देखना चाहते हैं? मैंने हाँ करी.
Shreeji continues, “Sudhir explained to Me that it is a school competition, and asked Me if I wished to go there and see how it happens. I said yes to him”.

श्रीजी- “अरे, इसने (सुधीर) बोला तो मैं वहां गया. नहीं तो मैं ऐसे कहीं किसी के साथ नहीं जाता”.
Shreeji- “Arrey, Sudhir told me to go, that is why I went there. Other wise I never go any where with anyone like this.

श्रीजी- “फिर समस्या हुई की मुझे कैसे पता चलेगा कहाँ जाना है? सुधीर ने सुझाव दिया की सुबह जल्दी आभा के यहाँ चले जाना और बच्ची के साथ में ही स्पोर्ट्स ग्राउंड चले जाना”.
Shreeji- “Then rose the problem of how will I know where to go? Sudhir guided Me saying that I should go early to Abha’s house. From there I can go with her child to the sports ground.

श्रीजी आगे बताते हैं, “इसलिए मैं सुबह ६ बजे से तेरे यहाँ आ गया था; मेरी बाहर वाली छवि मैं बैठ गया. सुबह तैयार होकर तेरी बच्ची मेरे पास आई प्रणाम करने और आशीर्वाद के लिए”.
“फिर जब देखा की वोह निकल रही है, जल्दी से भागा और उसके साथ गाडी में बैठ गया. क्यों की मालूम नहीं था की कहाँ जाना है”.
Shreeji continues, “So early morning at 6 I reached your house and sat down in My Chavi which is outside in the hall. Your child came to Me to do her pranam and for blessings, before she left. As soon as I saw her leave, I also ran and sat in the car with her; as I did not know where to go.

श्रीजी- “स्पोर्ट्स मैदान में, मैं उसके पीछे खड़ा हो गया, क्योंकि मालुम ही नहीं था की क्या करना है”. “फिर सब भागने लगे, और तेरी बच्ची भी तेज़ी से भागी. मैं तो खड़ा ही रह गया.वोह पहले नंबर पर आई, और खूब जोर से ताली बजी;
Shreeji- “At the sports ground I stood behind her, as I just did not know what to do”. “Then suddenly all began to run and your child also ran fast. I was just left standing there alone. She came first and all clapped loudly for her.

श्रीजी थोड़ी सी उदास आवाज़ में आगे बताते हैं, “लेकिन मुझे कोई नहीं देख रहा था. मैं खड़ा रहा, समझ में नहीं आया क्या करूँ. लेकिन मज़ा आया. बहुत धूप थी, और गर्मी भी.
Shreeji continues a little sadly, “But no one was looking at Me. I just stood there as I did not understand what to do.
It was a lot of fun. But it was very sunny and hot.

श्रीजी- “थोड़ी थोड़ी देर में मैं तेरी बच्ची का चेहरा देख लेता था, मैं सही जगह पर ही हूँ न.
वहाँ कई बच्चे कागज़ खोल कर कुछ खा रहे थे, वो क्या होता है?
Shreeji- “Every few minutes, I would look at your child’s face; and made sure that I am yet in the right place. Many children were eating something from a paper packet, what was that?”

आभा- “श्रीजी, वो सैंडविच होगा, सब बच्चे पसंद करते हैं”.
Abha- “Shreeji, that must be a sandwich. Most of the children enjoy eating that.

आभा- “श्रीजी यह तो बताइये की आपको कैसा लगा? आशा है की स्पोर्ट्स डे में आपको मजा आई. आपने कभी ऐसा देखा ही नहीं होगा”.
Abha- “Shreeji, how did You like being there, hope you enjoyed the Sports day and had fun. I am sure You must have never seen anything like this before”.

श्रीजी शिकायत के लहजे में, “अरे, सब कितनी आवाज़ करते हैं! बहुत गर्मी भी थी वहां. वोह लोग ऐ.सी (AC)रूम में क्यों नहीं भागते हैं?
Shreeji in a complaing tone, “Arrey, these children make so much noise! It also became very hot. Why don’t these children run in an AC room?”

मुझे हँसी आती है. “श्रीजी इसलिए की बहुत बच्चे होते हैं इतना बड़ा कमरा कहाँ से लाएँगे”.
I burst in laughter. “Shreeji, maybe because there are a lot of children. It is not possible to get such a large room for sports events”.

श्रीजी नटखट आवाज़ में कहते हैं, “हाँ.. फिर तो उनको एक छोटा ए.सी (AC) साथ लेकर दौड़ना चाहिए, अपने अपने सर के ऊपर. हा हा हा. लेकिन वोह चलेगा कैसे”.
और यह देखो, धूप में मैं कितना काला हो गया”. श्रीजी मजाक में कहते हैं.
Shreeji continues talking in His naughty tone, “Han.. But then they should all run with a small AC fitted on their head. Ha Ha, but then how will the AC work”.
Also just see, how black and dark I have become in the sun..” Shreeji jokes.

श्रीजी आगे कहते हैं, “बहुत बच्चे थे, मुझे आनंद आया. पहले मैंने सोचा की तेरी बच्ची को उठा कर जल्दी से आगे रख दूँ, पर सुधीर की कही हुई बात याद आ गयी। उसने बोला था, ‘श्रीजी कोई मस्ती नहीं करना वहाँ पर. सब लोग घबरा जायेंगे. कुछ नुक्सान भी नहीं होना चाहिए. फिर जब मन करे, आप वापस आ जाना’.
Shreeji continues with His dialogue, “There were a lot of children, I enjoyed Myself. Initially I had thought of lifting your child and putting her directly on the finish line. But I remembered Sudhir’s warning. He had told Me not to do any mischief and just watch. Sudhir had explained that I should not cause any problem, as it could frighten the people present there. And whenever I feel like it, I could leave and go back”.

My child also told me later. “I felt very confident and there was no exhaustion after running the races. There was no negative thought in my mind”. (She had won gold in all the three running events).
I explained God’s blessings to her, her own faith in Shreeji, and His Presence in our house. We both did a dhoop for Shreeji and thanked Him for His blessings.

The same day later Millie too told me that as she entered the sports ground, she smelt the fragrance of Nathdwara Prasad. She looked around her, but there was no tree or foliage from which the fragrance could come. It all felt very divine. While returning also, at the same point; she could smell the Nathdwara Prasad fragrance again.
This might be because of ShreeNathji’s Live Presence as Lalan in that area. And Millie is His bhakt.

Some happenings are un explainable and incredibly divine in nature. They cannot be explained in worldly language and can be understood and accepted only in faith and bhakti.

(For those who have never eaten the prasad from Nathdwara, Shreeji’s prasad has the typical fragrance of kapur( camphor) and some added spices which is very typical of the Nathdwara Haveli prasad).

It is always kripa of God and Guru, that one can be fortunate enough to be a nimit for such divine interactions.

My pranam to my Gurushree and MahaGurushree, I am humbled by this divyata in my life and the divine love and kripa that I am showered with!

Jai Shreeji
Jai Shree Radhe Krishn!

ShreNathji at Rajbhog Darshans

 

… On 13th morning, around 11.30 am, Gurushree Sudhir bhai calls up, “Do you want to go to Nathdwara? We will leave today evening, do all darshans tomorrow and come back on the 15th evening”.

As the program is so sudden, I reply that I need some time to think it over and will call him back in sometime. Sudhir bhai realizing that I am a little hesitant says it is okay, we will go some other time.
As for me, I was hesitant because there are some important work and appointments lined up for the next day.
I am in a confused state of mind at having said no to going for darshans.
In an hour I receive another call from Gurushree, “I have booked my ticket on the 5.40 pm Kingfisher flight and I am leaving for Nathdwara”.

I have never ever declined an offer to visit Dear ShreeNathji, so I am upset, as how could Gurushree decide to go without me.
(At this moment I am not aware that it is Shreeji’s hukum for us to reach Nathdwara).
As I whined on the phone, my two daughters who were watching this, asked me, “Who are you speaking to and what is happening”?

 

I explained how I had hesitated to go for darshans to Nathdwara earlier and now Sudhir bhai is going by himself.
“So why are you so upset? Why don’t you also go”? I explained that I could not as this was so sudden and there were some very important appointments and work lined up for the next day

 

My daughters laughed, “You are so stupid, mummy, please go we will manage all of this, no worries. We can also help you pack. Let’s book your ticket too. Don’t worry about us. How does it matter if its last minute? We will complete everything for you. Just go, we know how much you love going to Nathdwara”. So they made my bookings in the same Kingfisher flight and I was lucky enough to get the ticket too.

 

While packing, I can already feel a sudden bliss which overcomes me. It felt sooo good, going to Nathdwara. All goes smooth, and my dear daughters packed me off to go visit my beloved ShreeNathji.
The amazing events and happening felt incredible. I felt so light, so joyous, just kept on laughing, nothing else mattered. Suddenly I felt transformed. All worries disappeared. All I could think of was to reach Nathdwara soon and go for ShreeNathji darshans.
This transformation happens in many of my yatras as usual, when I feel like a different person. Sudhir bhai says that it is my soul which takes over me in the outer world.

 

From now till the next morning it never struck me that it is 14th and Valentine’s Day.

 

Next morning, as we waited in the Haveli parisar for Mangla darshan to open, Gurushree, Sudhir bhai finally told me something very astounding, as to the real reason why we had to come so suddenly.

“Shreeji learnt the meaning of Valentine’s day from me. He sees the excitement happening all around so asked me what it actually means. I explained simply, saying that it is a day when people celebrate with their loved ones. Shreeji was very excited and then gave me hukum that he wanted you and me to be in Nathdwara for the 14th February.
“He, ShreeNathji”, wished to spend the Valentine’s Day with both of us, because we were the two bhakts that He loved deeply, in our world; Abha Shahra and Sudhir Shah. Also it is Falgun month and Holi is played in His mandir, so Shreeji invited both of us to be present on Valentine’s Day at His Haveli to play Holi with us.
That is why I called up and made a sudden program. Shreeji did not let me tell you at that time, why we had to make a sudden decision. His order was that I could only tell you once we reach the Haveli”.

 

What a super surprise!
Shreeji made Sudhir bhai plan this yatra, so that He, ShreeNathji, Thakurjee, wanted to be with both of us at His Param Dham, Nathdwara, for Valentine’s and He wished to play Holi with us at His mandir.

I am speech less after this writing. What do I say? I am at a loss of words here; no words will ever be able to describe the magnitude of Shreeji’s love for his bhakts.

 

Later at the mandir before Rajbhog Darshans, as we sat at the Dhajaji, we heard Shreeji,

श्रीजी: “देखो मैंने तुम दोनों को बुला लिया ना  मुझे मालूम पड़ गया वैलेंटाइन डे किया होता है .

मुझे तुम दोनों के साथ रहना था और होली भी खेलनी थी.

बहुत अच्छा किया की तुमने सुधीर की बात मान ली.

तुम दोनों मेरे बहुत प्यारे हो”.

“मैंने ही सुधीर से कहा था की तुम लोग नाथद्वारा आओ और मेरे साथ होली खेल कर मेरे साथ वैलेंटाइन डे मनाओ”.

Shreeji:“See, I called both of you’ll here. I understood what Valentine’s Day means.
I told Sudhir that I wished to spend this day with both of you at My mandir and also play Holi with you’ll.
I am glad that you agreed to Sudhir and came here.
Both of you are my loved bhakts”.
“It was Me who ordered Sudhir to come to Nathdwara, and play Holi with Me at My mandir on this day”.

 

The ten minutes as we stood sanmukh Thakurjee in the Rajbhog darshans, it felt as if time stood still. I stood transfixed watching Shreeji being covered with Holi colours. It was like entering into a trance.

I received the best of darshans and just stood there in His Sanmukh; feeling Shreeji’s Love as I was drenched with His vibrations; it is a very pure and sublime moment, nothing else is remembered;
Though there is tremendous crowd and noise, I am not distracted. It is me and Shreeji playing Holi and the rest of the world disappears for those few moments.
Gurushree and I stood before Shreeji, on Valentine’s Day, 14th February 2008, playing Holi with Him, drenched in His love for us.

The divyata of this moment has no verbal expression. It is only to be felt and be very very grateful for the kripa.

This entire darshan takes nearly 30 minutes. We do not shake off the sacred colours; it is collected in a packet to be distributed as Shreeji’s Blessings to close family.

 

One should not run away thinking about the clothes; in fact this drenching with colours in Shreeji’s mandir, within His Purest vibrations is one of the easiest ways to enter higher purity. Shreeji Himself plays colours for an entire month, so that all bhakts can avail of His purifying Blessings.
After this is the ‘Aarti’.

As I bow, my forehead which touches the ground is also covered with the pure, divine colours. I do not wipe it off and accept this as a parting gift from my beloved Shreeji.

 

When Shreeji wishes some happening to take place, nothing can come in between. All plans work perfectly for Him.
How it happens, Sudhir bhai tells me often I should not think, only keep faith and accept gratefully what Shreeji gives us, in small matters as well as big happenings.
We complete all the eight darshans that day and visit Shreeji’s gaushala. I had also booked thuli for all my kids.

 

I am speech less after this writing. What do I say? I am at a loss of words here; no words will ever be able to describe the magnitude of Shreeji’s love for his bhakts.

My entire love and devotions are there for Him thanking Him for this Kripa and Grace. How lucky could I be!

Jai Ho Prabhu, Jai Shreeji!

 

We are called at 3.30 am to ShreeNathji’s Haveli.

ShreeNathji – His “LIVE” interactions Varta in today’s time period.

We are called at 3.30 am to Shreeji’s Haveli.

श्रीजी, “तुम ग़ुस्सा हो इतनी जल्दी उठा कर लाया तुम्हें?

 

This Varta is from the 3, 4 June, 2007

We leave for Nathdwara on the 3rd afternoon. As it is Adhik maas, this yatra is planned to Nathdwara first and directly from there to Vraj Mandal, till the 13th June.

We reach Nathdwara only at 8 pm. Next morning which is the 4th  June, I am woken up at 2.45am by Gurushree, Sudhir bhai. “We will go and wait in the outer parisar of the Haveli early today. Shreeji has sent a hukum for us to be there early”.

I hurriedly shower and am ready by 3.15 am. Out on the streets, it is yet dark in total silence. There is hardly anyone to be seen this early, on way to the Haveli. We reach ShreeNathji Haveli at around 3.30 am and sit at our favorite place. It is an empty parisar with just the few guards outside the main gate of Shreeji mandir.

In this darkness, the early morning serenity and silence are broken by the loud banging from breakage going on around the Haveli.
This loud disturbing noise was because of throwing the stones and cement debris from the broken structures in a tractor.
This actually is the reason that Shreeji has ordered us to be here so early today. As we sit here, Shreeji’s divine Presence can be felt very strongly. His melodious voice echos,

श्रीजी – ” तुम ग़ुस्सा हो इतनी जल्दी उठा कर लाया तुम्हें?

Shreeji – “Are you angry that I woke you so early and bought you here”

मैंने जवाब दिया – ‘नहीं श्रीजी, बिलकुल नहीं, हुकुम करिये ‘
I answer – ‘Of course not at all Shreeji, tell me your hukum’.
श्रीजी – “देखो यह कैसे पत्थर पटकते हैं। कितनी आवाज़ करते हैं। श्रीजी कैसे सो सकते हैं यह कोई सोचता ही नहीं. किसी को परवाह नहीं की श्रीजी जाग जाएँगे। पूरी रात इसी तरह शोर करते हैं। तुम्हें यह बताना था”।

Shreeji – “Just see, how these people bang stones. They make tremendous noise. No one has the bhao to understand that Shreeji must be sleeping inside. Nobody cares that how can Shreeji sleep in so much noise; He might be disturbed and will wake up. Entire night they make this loud noise. I called you early only to show you this noise.

 

श्रीजी – “मैंने सुधीर से यह बात कही थी रात को। लेकिन इसने जवाब दिया की, ‘ श्रीजी, आप ही के मंदिर का काम चल रहा है, थोड़ी आवाज़ तो होगी ही, चला लेना पड़ेगा। इन लोगों में समझ नहीं है कि आपको डिस्टर्ब होता होगा। आप ही चाहते हैं कि मंदिर का काम हो’। सुधीर सही कहता है”.

Shreeji – “I had mentioned this to Sudhir earlier. He told me that, ‘Shreeji Your mandir work is going on, there will be some noise. You will have to accommodate this noise for some days. The authorities here lack understanding; they will not understand that it might disturb You’.

Sudhir speaks right”.

 

मैंने जवाब दिया – ‘श्रीजी, मैं इनको कहूँ काम धीमे करने के लिए’।

I ask Shreeji – ‘Shreeji should I request them to work silently’.
श्रीजी – “नहीं, नहीं, तुम कुछ मत बोलना। मैं तो तुम्हें जल्दी लाया था सिर्फ़ दिखाने के लिए।

काम तो करना ही होता है। तुम अपनी वेब्सायट  में लिखना की देखो किसी को,भाव नहीं है श्रीजी के लिए”।

(हम लोग श्रीजी के हुकुम से उनकी वेबसाइट श्रीनाथजीभक्ति बनाने की तैयारी कर रहे थे)

Shreeji – “No no, you don’t have to say anything to them. I bought you here only to show this to you. The work will have to be completed. You can write this on your website, look what is happening; no one has any bhao for Shreeji anymore”. (This was the time when we were planning Shreenathjibhakti website for Shreeji, under His hukum).
We sat like this for nearly an hour. Shreeji keeps on making jokes about the loud noise that is happening.

श्रीजी – “यह देखो आइ पत्थर लेकर, अब पटकेगी। पटको,पटको, ज़ोर से पटको, हा हा हा..”

Shreeji – “See here she comes with the stones, now she will bang the stones loudly now. Throw, throw, throw, bang loudly, ha, ha, ha”

Shreeji keeps on making me laugh, asking me if I was angry that He had woken me up so early as we just sat here doing nothing.

श्रीजी – “देखो, मैं तुमको कितना हंसाता  रहता हूँ”. सबको ख़ुशी देनी चाहिए”.
Shreeji – “See, how I make you laugh always, we should give joy to everyone”.

 

During day time because of the heavy crowd there is no place for a tractor to come inside to carry the cement and stones.

The only problem was that these workers threw the stones in the tractor with a loud bang; they obviously had no instructions or training from the mandir authorities to work silently. This being Shreeji’s Haveli where He lives, He is very disturbed by the loud noise and banging all night through.

When we wait at Mangla all Vaishnavs are always asked to stay quiet, as Shreeji is sleeping inside. None is allowed in the premises once the Shayan Darshan is over. No one inside also dares to make any noise, as not to cause disturbance to Thakurjee.

It is only after Shankhnaad that Shreeji wakes up. This proves that all believe of ShreeNathji’s “LIVE PRESENCE” in His Haveli.

All locals as well as authorities must have been aware of this loud banging every day, yet none had the bhao to go correct the situation and make it quieter. Maybe that is why Shreeji woke us and called us here to show what is happening.

(As Sudhir bhai had explained that the work has to go on, Shreeji should allow it. We cannot help it if the people in power have no bhao to think that Shreeji is sleeping inside and will be disturbed. So Shreeji maybe decides that He will let the work continue, and go sleep somewhere else. Shreeji, being so full of kindness and compassion forgives all. All He told me was to write about this happening on my website. We had tears in our eyes. Have we lost all bhao. Entire nights Shreeji may have not been able to sleep because of the very loud noise of loading stones in a tractor).

It is His town and His Haveli; and may be Shreeji is not happy with the way His sewa  is being done. Who can stop Him if He decides to leave and go back to His favorite Dham, Vraj Mandal.

People have come with their shops till the main entrance of Shreeji’s Haveli. Here they dirty and cause filth all over, not giving any thought about the purity that should be maintained if God Lives here. They all take advantage of the kindness and forgiveness nature of Shreeji.

Mangla opened at 5 am today.

Shreeji kripa rakhen, You are very kind and forgiving.

Shreeji ki Jai ho!

 

 

 

 

ShreeNathji becomes my MahaGurushree and makes me His ‘Best Friend’

ShreeNathji LIVE Varta in todays time period with His bhakts.

ShreeNathji becomes my MahaGurushree and makes me His ‘Best Friend’

श्रीजी; “ओके तुम मेरी बेस्ट फ्रेंड हो; मैं तुम्हारे साथ खेलने आऊंगा” .

 

This Divine Anubhuti is from some years back.

We are waiting outside Shreeji Haveli at Nathdwara. As usual we are here sixty minutes earlier then the Mangla Darshan timing. It’s a niyam, with Gurushree, to be present much before the Darshan opens and wait for Shreeji.

Waiting for the doors to open, I try meditating on ShreeNathji. Also some thoughts from an earlier conversation with Gurushree were in my mind. He explained to me how purity of bhao has deteriorated in humans and the shram that Shreeji might be experiencing.

I wondered how sad Shreeji must be today with this loss of devotion. The truth is there as history, how much Shreeji enjoyed playing Live with His Vrajvasis when He Lived on Shri Govardhan.

 

Suddenly I heard ShreeNathji’s sweet and melodious voice echoing inside, as if complaining,अचानक मुझे श्रीजी की मधुर गुंजन सुनाई दी, जैसे की वह कुछ शिकायत करना चाह रहें हैं.

 

Shreeji: “Since sooooo many years this mukhiya only rotates a phirkee. I have become very bored. I run away from here. They do not think of anything new. All tempt Me with an extra Laddoo to make Me do their work. No one comes to just play and have fun with me anymore”.

श्रीजी: “यह मुखिया सिर्फ फिरकी घूमता रहता है इतने सालों से. मैं तो बोर हो गया . मैं तो भाग जाता हूँ. कुछ नया तो सोचते ही नहीं . देखो मुझे लालच देकर काम करवाते हैं .एक लड्डू ज्यादा देकर कहते हैं की मेरा काम करो . कोई मेरे साथ खेलने या मस्ती करने तो नहीं आता” .

Over joyed in this anubhuti, I replied;

I asked Shreeji: ‘Shreeji, if You wish I could be Your friend. I will always play whenever You want; if You wish to accept me as a friend’.

इस अनुभूति से बहुत आनंदित होकर मैंने जवाब देने की कोशिश करी;

मैंने कहा: ‘श्रीजी अगर आप चाहें तो मैं आपकी फ्रेंड बन सकती हूँ, आप के साथ खेल सकती हूँ, अगर आप मुझे फ्रेंड बनाना चाहें तो’

 

I was thrilled to receive an answer, immediately,

 

मैं आस्चर्या चकित हो गई श्रीजी से यह जवाब सुनकर;

 

Shreeji: “Ok, you are my friend, I will come to play with you.You are my ‘best friend’ and you will be the only ‘friend’ I will ever have”.

श्रीजी; “ओके तुम मेरी फ्रेंड हो; मैं तुम्हारे साथ खेलने आऊंगा. तुम मेरी बेस्ट फ्रेंड हो मैं और सिर्फ तुम ही हमेशा मेरी फ्रेंड रहोगी, और कोई नहीं”.

 

And since then He has kept to His word, and made me a part of many Divine Leelas.

There have been innumerable precious moments when I have been graced with ShreeNathji’s Divine Presence and the gunjan (echo) of Shreeji’s Divinely sweet voice, where He talks and plays various leelas. Shreeji has agreed to be my MahaGurushree too.

और तभी से, श्रीजी ने उनकी कही हुई बात निभाई है, और मुझे कई दिव्य अनुभूति का हिस्सा बनाया है. ऐसे बहुत सारे अमूल्य क्षण का हिस्सा बनी हूँ जब श्रीजी की कृपा से उनकी दिव्य हाजिरी और उनकी मधुर आवाज़ के गुंजन से लीला और खेल करते हैं.

श्रीजी मेरे महागुरुश्री भी बनने के लिए मान गए हैं.

(It is like a repeat of the 84 Vaishnavs or 252 Vaishnav Ki Vaarta, in today’s time period).

At times this is the voice of a very young infant; at other moments like an older child or at times an adult talking about various happening.

Maybe Shreeji would actually want to move away and be elsewhere, maybe He actually runs away from the mandir after the first few moments of giving darshans;

He could be spending His day with a few true devotees who keep total love and devotion- bhao for Him.

In fact you will never truly know where He truly is today; as none is close enough to Him.

 

My MahaGurushree, ShreeNathji Ki Jai Ho!

Thank You for Your trust in me, I am humbled..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ShreeNathji – Mahaprabhuji baithakji at Mansi Ganga

ShreeNathji – Mahaprabhuji baithakji at Mansi Ganga:

 

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 the 10th Baithakji  of Shri Mahaprabhuji, located at the Mansi Ganga, Shri Govardhan.

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.
