SHRI MAHAPRABHUJI'S BAITHAKJI AT MULA GOMATA
NANA BHAVDA - 361 335, TALUKA. DWARKA, DIST. JAMNAGAR (GUJARAT)
Here, when Shri Mahaprabhu Vallabhacharya took his seat under a shady tree Krishnadas Meghan asked how the Mulgomati river came to be. Shri Mahaprabhuji enlightened, “Mulgomati descended form the eternal realm and was born as a princess. When she was young she told her father that she would arrange for her own marriage. Lord Dwarkanathji appeared and told her to take on the form of the a river and then she would be able to merge with the Lord in his form as an ocean. Taking her Lord’s advice she became the Gomati river which meets the ocean near Lord Darkanathji’s temple in Dwarka.”
Later, one renunciate came to Shri Mahaprabhuji and said, “I used to live in the south and was a disciple of Shri Vishnu Svami. After my wife and children passed away, I took to the path of renunciation and coming here have been reading the Bhagavata daily. Four times death has come to take me, but I have sent him back each time. After seven ;hundred years, the Lord appeared to me and I requested Him to given me the sight of Lord Krishna’s childhood lilas and to be able to live by the Govardhan Hill. The Lord told me that my demands were difficult but could be achieved through your grace. He told me in a dream that you were coming here.”
Shri Mahaprabhuji rapliied, “You have resorted to your own means to achieve the Lord and therefore have had difficulty. Shri Mahaprabhu intiated him and after reading the Bhagavatam there for seven days told the rennciate that after three days he would I leave his body and would take birth as Harji Gwala near the Govardhan Hill and that his son Shri Gosainji would see to his liberation. From here, Shri Mahaprabhuji proceed to Shri Dwarka.
