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!

Shreeji gives us Hukum to come play Holi with Him at His Haveli on Valentine’s Day

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

 

 13th, 14th, 15th February, 2008. Magh Sud Ashtmi, VS 2064

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.

A Divine Guru-The Sadguru

A Divine Guru – The Sadguru:

#sadguru #divineguru #importanceofguru #gurupurnima

A Divine Guru represents the UnManifest Form of God

This Divine Jeev Atma is an Ansh of God(Thakurjee), come to complete certain divine works and leela of Thakurjee Himself. God (Thakurjee) works through this divine Atma for His outer work and leelas to be completed.

The presence of Divine Guru is a very rare happening on Earth.

 

the divine guru

 

Why is the Divine Guru important

 1 – The immensity of karmic impurities we carry within ourselves, through cycles of birth and rebirth; if not impossible; is extremely difficult and slow to be cleared away by ourselves in the regular methods we follow.

To move deep within – many past sanskars have to be cleared out, as without total purification one cannot move inwards or towards God.

The purity of our life, inner thoughts and actions today, has deteriorated to an alarming extent. It becomes so easy to not remember the truth about our birth.

The required motivation and courage to stay stable on this journey towards one’s reality (in spite of all odds), comes from God and Divine guru, the Sadguru.

The extremely fast and out ward  lifestyles today, that  majority of us live in makes it extremely easy to fall back into the mayic jungle (worldly life). We also today have access to a lot of knowledge from innumerable sources; possibly all not authentic. The entire world knowledge is there for us with as many news and views, which though may sound good, could cause serious confusion about what to do, whom to follow.

Our thoughts are affected by the media to a very large extent. Because of the alarmingly different thoughts bombarding us today, how can we decide what is true and important for us at the particular stage and situation in our life. The sifting of knowledge is extremely difficult, with many trying to catch attention in not all the right ways.

All this could become a khichdi (mix) of the wrong kind. All our innumerable methods of praying, meditations, scripture reading, chanting, satsangs, seva, yogic kriya; are ways not directly related with God. Without the right understanding, though we may spend hours praying; required purifications do not take place as we all know; without the right purity of – bhao, heart, mind, body, soul – it is impossible to be anywhere near the Divine powers. A Divine guru could guide you on an individual level making your progress the fastest, as he will never have  more than a handful of close followers.

2 – At times it can become very difficult and dangerous for a devotee to be confronted by non- believers,

(I speak with direct experience), who may want to argue and demand logical explanations for spiritual truths. During the course of my spiritual journey, several times I have received this reaction from many seekers and people close, who have a pre formed opinion of how everything should be. Anything which seems different from how IT all should happen is criticized immediately, without true understanding.

During these confrontations, only the support from a divine guru can help maintain the right balance, or else it’s easy to slip in the comfort of the known way of life which all approve of. To be able to stay firm, one requires help and guidance from right guru or master, who is overflowing; and not hungry nor a beggar.

Till the time one is not established strongly in the DOT, the closeness and regular support of the Divine Guru is important and should not be debated.

3 – Spending time with the Sadguru on a continuous level makes it easier to maintain the high level of purity and positivism in consciousness, required for digestion of the high wisdom and pure auras. The proximity helps keep my mind focused on the goal. Or else in the routine of our lives, it is easy to lose all the ‘high pure energy’ and get caught up in the rat race. The worldly maya  and  control people try to exert at times, can act as a deterrent to the spiritual awakenings.

4 – The value of the divine guru is that he teaches you through example – he lives his truth; in his life you are able to see all the various truths you may have read or heard from various spiritual sources. Our mind is also purified by this satsang (pure association). The required strength, courage, motivation to be able to stay stable in this inward journey is directly the grace of God and Guru. The guru is the total form of unconditional love.

5 – I have experienced; how with the right purification from a divya (divine) guru; the karmas of this life and past lives can be felt, accepted and understood in the right positive manner; in the least of time. Too many words are not required, then, as too much talking can be only empty words.

When the guru whom one follows, preaches certain truths about God and ourselves, and as also how we can reach to that particular spot, I strongly believe, that first he himself should become an example of what he is trying to give his disciples.

He should be the motivation as living the truth in totality. Only then he can have the power to give, THAT, which TRANSFORMS.

The transformative blessings only can come from one who is a living example of the reality which he tells you to follow.

This can happen only through the divine guru. Too many words are not required, then, as too much talking can be only empty words. The required blessing, kripa is transferred in an instant without you even realizing it has happened; only the results are experienced.

I have found, God is very close to us and His kripa, along with the grace from the divine guru finishes all karmic debts within us and thus the soul shines out in crystal clear purity.

HOW DO WE FIND OUR GURU?

We as normal humans have no insight to recognize the right form of guru; As the universal laws go, all we as average humans can do is pray to God for guidance and blessings; when our thirst , our yearning is right the universe will have to pick up our request. This request is broadcasted as our Soul requirement and the right vibration picks us up.

If determination and commitment is placed on God in one Form, then He will undoubtedly take responsibility for you. When the time is right, He would be there to take care of further purifications and soon He will reward with the right guidance in the form of a guru – the Divine spiritual guide; who will find you.

From there on what we require is total faith and surrender, so that the soul can be touched and awakened and moved on in the right direction.

QUALITY OF THE DIVINE GURU

A Divine Guru is the symbol of Truth and does the work of jolting people out of their deep sleep.

The Divine guru is rare in our world, so becomes very difficult to understand and most tough to follow; working from the level of Sadhyata, he works for God Himself or God works through him.

His physical structure (body) becomes a pavitra (pure) mandir (temple) for his God, who stays “LIVE” in there, coming and going as and when He pleases.

He introduces his carefully chosen disciple to Swarup Sewa, not Idol worship. Swarup Sewa is when God (Shree RadhaKrishn, ShreeNathji) Himself is Manifest, independent of any other chanting or rituals.

The Divine guru gives the disciple a direct connection with his God; of course disciplines of purity and lifestyle are a must. In this process the deepest cleansing and karmic purifications take place through one who has already merged with the Divine.

The Divine Energy along with the Guru’s grace; help you to reach your final soul destination; experiencing sampoornta (total ness) within oneself. Our own reality unfolds from within.

These transformative blessings can only come from one who is a living example of the reality which he tells you to follow.

DIVINE GURU IN MY LIFE  DSC09726

 

My Divine Guru – Gurushree Sudhir bhai

My Form of God – ShreeNathji, Shree RadhaKrishn

My Self – the seeker – Abha Shahra Shyama

 

 

 

 

This reality I have experienced in the guidance of my Gurushree, Shri Sudhir bhai; as he helped me in my soul understandings along with the required purifications.

The truth about God; I have understood from him, the importance of bhakti and bhao in our prayers, as also the right purity in Mind, Body and Soul.

His egoless ness and total surrender to his God ShreeNathji, is exemplary.

All my experiences on this spiritual journey, I recount in my documentations as a book on God and Guru and the seeking Self or soul.

After all my experiences from the last nearly 13-14 years, I have realized the truth that God, Guru and Self are one; meaning that my devotion to Guru is also devotion to God as also to the Self within me.

As you read in my book, “Zero2Dot”, (which is a documentation of my spiritual growth), at several points it may appear astonishing, as to what I say.

My claims are true, the Presence of ShreeNathj – Shree RadhaKrishn is very real and alive around us.

“Giving one’s key in the hands of the right guru-the Divine guru, and through him to God, is the only right way to move forward in Bhakti and reach to your DOT”.

The moment fear or ego comes in the picture; much is taken away; basically, when our lack of trust or understanding prevents us from surrendering to God, we lose ourselves in the confusions of various rituals and dogmas.

I learnt from him to live my life on the highest truth:

“No matter what others say or think; if you are following the soul’s demands towards your God, move on, do not stop, only because some people do not have the right understandings”.

I have found, God is very close to us and He along with the divine guru finishes all karmic debts within us and thus the soul shines out in crystal clear purity.

This Divine guru is a storage house for the blessings from God and for his own shaktis.

What flows from him needs the right quality in the receiver to be able to absorb and digest it all – the right bhao-shuddhi-lagan-aastha

 

Jai Shreeji!

ShreeNathji-Vallabhacharya Baithakji 8 at BahulaVan

Shri Bahulavan Baithakji Number 8

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 8th  Baithak of Mahaprabhuji, located at Bahula Van, Vraj Mandal.

The Mukhiyaji had asked us not to take photos of the darshans, so I did not.

These three photos that you see below, I have found on the internet, hence uploaded them for the bhakts. Their link is given at the bottom of this post.

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.

ShreeNathji with Shri Vallabhacharya

Jai Shreeji!

ShreeNathji Gaushala – Nathdwara

ShreeNathji’s most favorite place – His Personal gaushala is situated about 3 km from His Haveli, at Nathdwara. 0   1 Surrounded by hills it is a very picturesque place; with a lot of open grounds. It was planned and built with the Haveli. As you see, numerous peacocks live in these surroundings. In the above picture, they seem to be feeding on freshly harvested wheat It houses about 2000 cows with a staff of 50 guwals to take care of them. 4

A lovely view of the Gaushala

3 Any visit to ShreeNathji is incomplete without a visit here. It is as important as the Mandir. Shreeji likes staying here – in the midst of His beloved ‘Gaumata’- as He calls them. DSC07412   Shreeji’s Personal cow is Lalitha today; her mother was Rukmani who died about 5-6 years back. 9 This personal cow is in direct lineage of the original herd of the Nand-vansh. She had appeared in Jatipura when the Ardh-Bhuja of Shreeji first appeared from Giriraj Govardhan, at Mathura. ShreeNathji Himself confirmed this to Shri Vallabhacharya. This cow also recognized her Gopal and would go on top of Shri Govardhan daily and feed her milk to Shreeji. (Cows can feel the vibrational levels and the fragrance of their loving Govinda, more than any of us humans). Since then the hierarchy has been maintained very strictly, and the cow came here when Shreeji moved from Mathura to Nathdwara. 5 At this time, Lalitha is called the wish fulfilling cow – any wish whispered in her ear after doing the aathada in full faith will give guaranteed results. The whispered words are received directly by Shreeji Himself; provided the shraddha is there!! 9a I was here first time with gurushree in February-2005 – did the aathada under his guidance and supervision. The aathada done in the presence of a Sadhya is totally clearing of all negativity of the past – our spine crosses totally through the surya bindu of this sacred cow. At the same time gurushree stands there with his mantra shakti and blessings – he granted me total mukti on this day from all the past births and the movement towards merging with the Divine Thakurjee. Since then I have been lucky to visit Nathdwara several times; each yatra has opened me, taking me closer and deeper to Divine ShreeNathji and my own true reality and identity. Many times I feel Shreeji likes to be away from His mandir; and He spends time with us at the Gaushala. This I can feel at times when His sweet voice tells us about some incident at His gaushala, and how much He loves being here with His beloved Gomata, as He calls them. 7

There is daily two thuli offered here from the mandir to the gaushala. This can be sponsored if one is lucky enough to get the required date; as only two people get the opportunity daily. This as I witnessed is cooked in the most ancient manner at the gaushala itself. Apart from this if any vaishnav wishes to offer food they can do so directly here by buying grains from the shops. But this is also monitored as extra feeding would have a bad effect on the health of the gaumata.

Gaumata, feeding peacefully.

  12 My Gurushree and MahaGurushree, both take delight in watching the gaumata feed in perfect discipline. Without any fight they come and stand in the designated spot and finish their food totally. No grain is wasted. “They should also take a lesson of not pushing around when doing My Darshans and take care to follow a proper queue; then all will get a chance to do proper Darshans”; Shreeji’s voice echoed. 16 (2)

There are paintings all over the gaushala, donated by bhakts.

Whatever offering is made to Shreeji Himself at His mandir in whatever form, He returns back savaya (25% more) to the donor. Finally nothing is actually kept by Shreeji. 17

The look of this place has been maintained in the original form.

It is only at the gaushala bhent that He accepts all totally and nothing is returned to the giver. Shreeji does the karm of taking His cows to graze; if anyone helps Him in this karm of His, He is the happiest and only blessings are returned. Not that we do this offering for return of blessings, it is with the bhao of doing some work for Shreeji; as ultimately in devotion to Thakurji it is only the purity of bhao that matters. Nothing else will help you get closer to Him. 19 20 My Dear Shreeji, Thank you for all Your kripa on this bhakt.. IMG_3425 Shreeji ki Jai ho!
