Sharing some pics of Sri Dhameshwar Mahaprabhu

Hare Krsna
Dandvat pranam, Jai Srila Prabhupad.

Since today is appearance day of Mother Vishnupriya…I am sharing some new pics of Sri Dhameshwar Mahaprabhu that I have recently got. After Chaitanya Mahaprabhu took sanyas and left for Puri Kshetra ,His wife Srimati Vishnupriya Devi began to pine away in separation from her beloved. Mahaprabhu himself gave her a vigraha of His own self to comfort her . This archa vigraha was made of robust neem wood with two palms facing forward in a gesture of embrace or welcome . Vishnupriya began worshiping this Thakurji in her home . Towards the end of her life she is said to have merged into this very Thakurji one morning after her daily puja .When the gates were opened people found her pearl nose bead hanging from the nose of Gauranga Mahaprabhu !

Today Thakurji is carefully preserved by descendants of maternal side of Vishnupriya Devi , who are also His sevaks . The little pearl nose ring still hangs from His nose . And He is considered the lord of Navadvip dham … hence His name Dhameshwar Gauranga. In the right side corner of the silver throne , in the front of Thakurji, one can see the original padukas of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu.

your servant,
Padmanabh das
