Sharing SriSri Radha Vrajnidhiji (8/5)

Hare Krsna dear devotees,
Dandvat pranam. Jai Srila Prabhupad.

Yesterday we had the good fortune to have darshan of a young couple from Vrindavan – SriSri Radha Vrajnidhiji…residing at Baltimore and being served by Mother Kalindi and Dixit Prabhu. It was Their appearance anniversary and HH Sri Radharaman Maharaj was present to glorify the Deities. SriSri Radha Vrajnidhi arrived from Vrindavan at Their new residence in Baltimore on Aug 5th 2006. We had the good fortune of being present at that time of Their arrival in 2006 to receive Their mercy…They were so beautiful that They captured us…time and time again we had the good fortune of visiting Them and taking Their darshan…and yesterday it was Their 5th anniversary.

HH Radharaman Maharaj narrated some pastimes that took place in a forest called Kamyavan in Vrindavan (one of the 12 forests where SriSri Radha Vrajnidhi have Their daily pastimes). After the katha, Maharaj requested some more kirtan and by Krsna’s grace, HG Krsnaprasad Prabhu had just arrived from India. So he was called upon by devotees to sing for SriSri Radha Vrajnidhiji. And Krsnaprasad Prabhu chose the most appropriate bhajan…one written by Srila Narottam Das Thakur – Radha Krsna Pran Mora Yugal Kishor…..SriSri Radha Vrajnidhiji shone like beautiful jewels standing on a throne made by Their devotee Gopis as this bhajan was being sung. As Srila Narottam das Thakurji describes the different upachars presented by Sakhis like Lalitaji and Vishakhaji to SriSri Radha Vrajnidhi, you can see The Divine Couple shine happily accepting the upachars and sringar. Especially when ‘gathiya malatir mala’ was sung and ‘adhare tuliya dibo karpura tambula’ was sung. Devotees can experience the description of Gopis serving SriSri Radha Vrajnidhiji as everyone sang at top of their voice this beautiful bhajan….added by some devotees who spontaneously got up and started dancing in front of Deities.

The beauty of SriSri Radha Vrajnidhiji is beyond description. I am adding some pics here for everyone to cherish Their beauty. As you go through pictures, please look at the beautiful Lotus feet of Sri Vrajnidhiji, which were open till knees as it is summer in Vrindavan…His nice ankle bells visible…one Feet crossed over other, extremely beautiful Lotus Feet. Also Srimati Radha Rani is looking very beautiful…with a big nose ring and nice flower garlands and flower ‘venis/ gajara’ on Her head. She is holding a tambula pan for Sri Vrajnidhi in Her right Hand and the middle finger in that Hand has a nice ring with hangings off that (latkaniya). Sri Vrajnidhi looks very mischievous as if He is about to pay a prank on Srimati Radharani. In fact, They both looked very mischievous and in a sporting mood. Have you ever heard – aiso chatak matak so Thakur tino lokun hu mein nahin’…once we take darshan of SriSri Radha Vrajnidhi from yesterday…we would realize the lyrics of this Vrajvasi rasiya.

SriSri Radha Vrajnidhiji ki Jai !!!!

Let us sincerely try to meditate on This very beautiful couple – SriSri Radha Vrajnidhi while chanting our rounds for next few days.

your servant,
Padmanabh das
