The photo says it all! The divine land yatra is never complete without at least one photo with beloved gaumata — at Mahalakshmi Mandir, Belvan, Vrindavan.
A peacock witnessing five Neel Gai running through Govardhan — at Goverdhan Giriraji Tehaleti Jatipura Prikrama.
Ter Kadamb is located just 1.5 km from Nandgaon and is quite secluded. So that retains the traditional vibe of Vraj Bhumi. It is the place where Shree Krishn plays bansuri to call His 900000 cows
जहाँ श्री राधा कृष्ण लीला में डूब जाने को मन, शरीर, आत्मा और दिल करे, वो व्रज धाम, श्रीनाथजी ठाकुरजी की प्रिय लीला भूमि
Gwal Pokhar or Gopal Kund, about 500 metres on the right side of Govardhan parikrama. It is a small Kund located near Shyam Kuti, Govardhan.Shree Krishn, during His Gocharan time would rest here in the afternoon.
There is no other as ALIVE SPOT in Vraj Mandal as the divy 21 kms of Giriraj Govardhan parikrama marg; in our times.
It is a sthal of several sakshatkar and Shree Thakurjee anubhuti.
At any point on this parikrama marg, there are many Shilas (Girirajji stones are called Shila as they are divine) which have a divine feel about them. Shilas can appear and disappear as they are alive with the divine powers.
When there is the pavitrata and samarpan one can ‘feel’ the divine presence at several spots around this Divine Parvat, which has been the leela sthali for several Shree RadheKrishn and ShreeNathji divine leelas.
Jai ShreeNathji Prabhu 🙏
Jai Shree RadheKrishn 🙏

एक selfie गिरिराज जी की दिव्य शिला के संग
इस आलोकित क्षण में हम क्या पा जाते हैं, वही समझ सकता है जो पूर्ण समर्पण में है।
गिरिराज जी के परिक्रमा मार्ग में, जहाँ से हटने को मन नहीं करे, समझ लो कुछ तो दिव्य दर्शन की अनुभूति हो रही है
Special strong laws is need of the hour. Already this sacred city has reached the point of no return. Few years more down the line and we will have a concrete jungle and heaps of waste littering all the divine vans. Yamunaji has already shrunk to the point of not being there.
#CMYogiAditynath Stop trying to see #Vrindavan riding on your special #helicopters 🚁 and getting special darshans
#नरेंद्रमोदी #वृंदावन #मथुरा #Pmoindia
आज ७ जुलाई २०१९, वृंदावन में सूचना मिली की #CMYogiAditynath वृंदावन में पधार रहे हैं।
मीटिंग है और बाँके बिहारी जी के दर्शन के लिए जाएँगे।
सम्पूर्ण city को बंद कर दिया! रिक्शॉ तक को अंदर घूमने की अनुमति नहीं है। कई घंटों तक सब रोड बंद रहेंगे।
#CMYogiAditynath अगर आप VIP roads से आएँगे जाएँगे, शहर आपके लिए ख़ाली कर दिया जाएगा, आपको कैसे अन्दाज़ होगा की समस्या क्या हैं?
सुधार कैसे करेंगे?
फ़ालतू के projects पर budget ख़र्च करके आप समझते हैं आपकी duty पूरी हो गई?
शहर और तीर्थ की जो असल समस्या है, वहीं की वहीं रह जाती हैं।
क्या आपने कभी सोचा है की आप आपके VIP troup के साथ निकल जाते हैं, किंतु आप अभी नहीं जान पाते हैं, सत्य क्या है?
आज किन हालात में है यह पवित्र भूमि, जो श्री राधा कृष्ण का निवास है, जहाँ हर क़दम पर कोई लीला भूमि है?
वृंदावन आज इतने बुरे आक्रमण से जूझ रहा है, आप को कैसे पता चलेगा, आप कभी समझ ही नहीं सकते!
आक्रमण लालच में अंधे इंसान का है, जो इस पवित्र भूमि को लूटने पर तुले हैं।
Please come down to the level of the common bhakt and try to see what is ailing my #Vrindavan.
Stop trying to see Vrindavan riding on your special #helicopters 🚁
Walk on the streets to know how you can truly help this dying #teerth
श्रीनाथजी #ठाकुरजी प्रभु आपको सद् बुद्धि देने की कृपा करें 🙏
Kunjera village is the place where the nine gopis took the form of an Elephant for Shree Krishn
In this post you will be able to hear the katha behind Gopis taking an elephant form for Shree Krishn.
When Shree Krishn was leaving Vrindavan, the Gopis requested Him not to leave. Shree Krishn joked that if they could show Him an elephant, he would not leave. Not being able to find an elephant, nine gopis came together and formed an elephant, which is called the Nav-nari kunjara.
The meaning of this divine leela in the words of the pujari:
A small mandir has been erected here
The earlier mandir was looted and the original murti depicting this divine leela was stolen. Just a couple of years ago this mandir was established by a bhakt, and a painting is being worshipped at present.
The Nine Gopi Elephant
Kunjera village mandir
The pujaris who narrated the varta
Giriraj Shila are worshipped here too
Kunjera village is located few kms from Shri Govardhan on the Northern side, towards Radha\Shyam Kund.
The village is not very clean and residents are quite poor.
Hot ginger chai! At one of the sacred Van (woods) #belvan in Vraj Mandal.
With the peacocks, parrots, cows, the squirrels and the snake!!
This particular video is from a very sacred spot in Vraj. Entire 84 kos of this land is divine and home to several sacred divine leela of Shree RadhaKrishn or ShreeNathji
Tea is made outdoors in the choolah. The sadhu babaji who lives here is very friendly.
He always offers me tea and we spend at least a couple of hours watching the peacocks, parrots, squirrels running around.
Preparing to light the outdoor chullah he continues talking all the time.
As he has no ginger I offer him some from my little bag. I have learnt from my innumerable visits to Vraj; to always carry some ginger with me, as many of the chai places(outdoor tea making spots) do not use it when it gets a bit expensive. And I love to have some ginger in my tea!! This tea has no added water and milk used is fresh from his Gaushala.
This is a step by step video of this exciting tea making ritual.
As he brews my #tea sadhu babaji continues to give me a lecture on the adulterated milk that we must be using in Mumbai.
Watch how babaji makes tea and also describes how three snakes came in his hut the other day to eat the rats. (In fact we actually see a snake crawl in the bush as we sat sipping on our tea).
Maybe you will notice the helper who picks up the ready tea from fire, removes his slippers before nearing the chullah. As cooking is considered a sacred ritual.
Listening to the peacocks meow in the background as tea is brewed makes for a very mesmerising experience as also keeping a watch on my tea, and filming this process.
In between I manage to photograph the two parrots who come in search of water at the tap. And the few squirrels who drink from the nullah. The new born calves hide in fear and are shy.
I’ve taken several pictures in my camera which will upload some day.
(This particular way of making tea outdoors is very ancient and not many places do it any more. Also I would not accept openly made tea if this place wasn’t a sacred spot and also clean enough).
