hamein ishwar ne do haath diye hain, daan dene ke liye
isiliye humein dene me jo anand ata hai vo kisi se kuch maangne me nahin

Krishna Bhajan

Krishna Govind Gopal gaate chalo
Man ko vishayon ke vish se bachate chalo

Dekhna indriyon ke na ghode bhage
Raat din inme saiyyam ke kode lage
Apne rath ko sumarg par chalaate chalo
Krishna Gobind Gopal gaate chalo

Naam japte raho karm karte raho
Paap ki vaasnaon se darte raho
Naam dhan ka khajaana bhadate chalo
Krishna Gobind Gopal gaate chalo

Praan jaaye magar naam bhulo nahi
Dukh me tadpo nhi sukh me fulo nhi
Prem bhakti ke ansu bahaate chalo
Krishna Gobind Gopal gaate chalo

Dhyan ayega unko kabhi na kabhi
Ish (Prabhu)payega ek din kabhi na kabhi
Aisa vishwas man me bithaate chalo
Krishna Gobind Gopal gaate chalo


Krishna Bhajan

Chalo Banke Bihari ke chaliye Sharan
Chalo Kunj Bihari ke chaliye Sharan

Sheesh sohe mukut kaan kundal sohe
Roop sunder suhana hai shyamal varan

Yahi raja dhiraja hain sansar ke
Chandra Surya chalen nit unke daran

Yehi jal me hain thal me hain sab me yehi
Yehi karte hain jeevon ka taaran taran

Pyari pyari pitambar ki shobha bani
Man ko mohe muraliya ki adharan dharan

Chalo banke bihari ke chaliye sharan...

Vaishno Devi ki Katha



Treta yug me jab Prithvi par Ravan, Khardushan,Trishira, Taadka adi rakshason ne ghor atyachar kar sadhu santon ka havan-yagya-pujan karna band karva diya tha, charon or aasuri pravrittiyan failne lagin, us samay Maa Bhagwati Maha Kali, Maha Lakshmi tatha Maha Saraswati ne Dharm raksha ke liye apne sammilit tej se ek divya shakti ko janm dene ka nishchay kiya aur ye sammilit tej punj ekatrit hokar ek divya baalika ke roop me prakat ho gyin, jinka naam Vaishnavi rakha gya.

Kanya Vaishnavi ne un teeno Maha Shaktiyon se puchha "mai kaun hun tatha mujhe kis hetu aap logon ne prakat kiya hai?" Deviyon ne kaha "humne tumhe Prithvi par Dharm ki raksha ke liye Prakat kiya hai. Isliye tum ab Dakshin Bharat me Ratnakar Sagar ke ghar prakat ho jao. Vahan tumhe aage chalkar Vishnu ke avtaar Ramchandra ji ke darshan honge."

Is ghatna ke kuch samay pashchat hi us kanya ne Ratnakar Sagar ke ghar janm liya, aur uska naam Vaishnavi rakha gaya. Vaishnavi apni chhoti si ayu me hi apne alaukik shaktiyon se logon ko prabhavit karne lag. Kuch hi dino me kanya ki prasiddhi door door tak hone lagi. Vaishnavi jab kuch badi hui to usne apne pita ke agya se samudra tat par kuti bana tapasya karni shuru kar di. Tapasya me leen reh kar Shri Ram ji ka dhyan aur smaran karti rehti thi. Unki ghor tapasya dekh kar Surya Dev ne divya kamandal bhent kiya.

Jab Vishnu Bhagwan ne Ayodhya me Dashrath putra Ram ke roop me avtaar liya, aur pita ki agya se chaudah varshon ke liye vanvaasi hue, us samay vo kanya samudra tat par samadhi me reh tapasya kar rahi thi, aur Ramji ke ane ki prateeksha kar rahi thi. Ravan ke dwara Sita ji ka haran ho jane par, Ram ji apne vanar sena ke sath samudra tat par pohche, tab unhone tapasya me leen divya kanya ko vahan dekha. Prabhu ShriRam divya kanya ki kuti me gaye. Kutiya me pohochne se kanya Vaishnavi ki samaadhi toot gyi aur unhone Ramchandra ji ko apne samne dekha. Unhe dekhkar vo prasann hui.

Kanya Vaishnavi ne vidhivat satkaar kar Prabhu ki stuti ki. Prabhu ne Vaishnavi se unka parichay aur tapasya ka karan pucha. Unhone uttar me kaha "Mai Ratnakar Sagar ki putri hun aur apko apne pati roop me pane hetu tapasya kar rahi hun." Yah sun Prabhu Shri Ram ne kaha "Is yug me maine ek-patnivrat hone ka sankalp liya hai. Devi apko apni tapasya ka fal prapt hoga jab mai Ravan ka vadh karne ke pashchaat apki kutiya me vesh badal kar aunga aur us vakt yadi apne mujhe pehchaan liya to mai apko patni roop me sweekar kar lunga".

Is tarah Lanka par vijay prapt kar Ayodhya lautate samay, Prabhu ShriRam ek vridh sadhu ka vesh banakar Vaishnavi ki kutiya me gye.Parantu Devi Vaishnavi unhe pehchaan na payin. Prabhu ne unse kaha "mere vachan-anusaar tum mujhe vridh sadhu ke vesh me nahi pehchaan payi. Par tumhari tapasya ka fal tumhe Kalyug ke ant me milega, jab mai Kalki avtaar lunga aur tumhe apni patni ke roop me sweekar karunga. Tab tak tum uttar Bharat ke Manik Parvat shrinkhala par sthit Trikoot Parvat ki gufa me, jahan teen Mahashaktiyon ka nivaas hai, jakar tapasya karo. Hanumanji vahan tumhare prahari honge. Samast bhumandal par tumhari yash tatha mahima failegi aur log tumhari Maa Vaishnvai ke roop me puja karenge.

Is tarah ye vishvas kiya jata hai ki Treta yug se teenon Mahashaktiyon ke sathMaa Vaishno Trikoot Parvat ki Gufa me saakshat virajmaan hain aur Prabhu ki prateeksha kar rahi hain.

Jai Maa Vaishno!

Mata ko nariyal ka bhent [why is coconut offered to God]



Ye katha un dino ki hai, jab Bharat me Mughal Samrat Akbar ka shaasan tha. Mata ka ek param bhakt Dhyanu, apne sang sahit Jwala Maa ke darshan ke liye ja raha tha. Itna bada sangh dekh kar Akbar ke sipahiyon ne Chandni Chowk me unhe rok liya aur Badshah ke darbar me le ja ke pesh kiya. Badhah ne Dhyanu bhakt se puchha "Itne logon ke sath tum kahan aur kyun ja rahe ho?"

Dhyanu ne hath jod uttar diya "hum log Mata ke bhakt hain aur Jwala Mai Shaktipeeth ke darshan ko ja rahe hain". Akbar ne Devi maa ka virodh karte hue kaha "Ye Devi Mai kaun hai aur unke darbar ja ke kya hoga?"Bhakt Dhyanu ne kaha "Jwala Mai sansar ki rachna evam palan karne wali mata hain. apne bhakton par sadaiv unki kripa rehti hai tatha sachhe man se ki gyi prarthana vo sweekar karti hain aur unki manokamna puri karti hain". Akbar ne kaha"hum yakeen kaise karen? Tum bhakt ho to apni maa se keh kar koi chamatkaar dikhao."

Dhyanu ne kaha "hum mata ke tuchh sevak hain aur bhala hum kya chamatkaar dikha sakte hain?" ye sunkar Akbar ko krodh aa gaya aur usne sangh ke pas jo ghode the unme se ek ki gardan katwa di, aur kaha "apni ma se kaho ki ghode ki gardan ko jod, use wapas jeevit kar den. Hum unka chamatkar dekhna chahte hain."

Bhakt Dhyanu ne Badshah se kaha "Maharaj! ek maah tak ap mere ghode ke dhad ko sir samet surakshit rakh den." Ek mahine ki mohlat lekar, usne Ma ke darbaar jaane ki anumati bhi li. Dhyanu apne sathiyon sahit Maa Jwala ke darbaar pohcha. Snan pujan karne ke upraant, raat bhar maa ke mandir me jagran kiya. Pratah kaal arti ke samay hath jod Dhyanu ne man se prarthna ki "Hey maiya! ap antaryami  hain. Badshah meri bhakti ki pareeksha le rahe hain. Meri laaj rakho maa aur mere ghode ko apni kripa se jeevit kar do. Anyatha mai bhi apna sheesh kaat apke charno me chadha dunga kyunki mai lajjit hokar jeena nahi chahta.

Thodi der tak maun re ke maa ke taraf dekhta raha, fir usne apna sheesh kaat kar Devi Maa ke charno me chadha diya. Usi samay Maa prakat huin aur bhakt ka sheesh dhadh se jud gaya. Maa ne kaha "Putra! tumhare ghode ko bhi maine jeevit kar diya hai. aur kuch ichha hai to vardaan maang lo".
Bhakt Dhyanu ne kaha "Maa!aap jagat mata hain. apne bhakt ki itni kathin pariksha na len. har bhakt apko apne sheesh ka bhent nahi de sakta, isliye bhent ke liye kuch anya vastu ko ap sweekar karne ki kripa karen". Maa ne kaha " mai abse sheesh ke sthan par nariyal ka bhent tatha sache man se ki prarthana dwara hi bhakt ki manokamna puri karungi." Yeh kehkar Maiya antardhyan ho gyin.

Idhar Badshah Akbar ghode ko jeevit dekh kar hairan tha. Usne apne kuch sipahiyon ko is chmatkar ke raaz ka pata karne ke liye Jwala Ji bheja. Vapas laut kar unke sipahiyon ne bataya ki zameen ke andar se roshni ki lapten nikal rahi hain. yadi ap hukm den to band karva den. Akbar ne sweekriti de di. Shahi sipahiyon ne sarva pratham Mata ki pavitra jyoti par lohe ke mote mote tave rakhva diye, parantu divya jyoti tava faad kar upar nikal ayin. iske pashchaat pani ke jharne se lagatar divya jyot ko bujhane ki cheshta ki gyi. Fir bhi jyot ka prakash kam na hua. haar kar shaahi sipahiyon ne badshah ko khabar di ki unki sari koshishen naakaam ho gyin aur Jyot abhi bhi jal rahi hai. ab ap jo theek samjhen karen.

Is samachaar ko pakar, Akbar ne darbar ke vidwan brahmano se salaah ki. Brahmano ne unhe khud jakar Maa ke chamatkaar ko mehsoos karne ka tatha Devi maa ko bhent chadhake prasann karne ka sujhaav diya. Akbar bhent ke roop me sawa man sone ka chhhatra leke Ma Jwala ke darbar nange paon pahuncha. Maa ki divya jyoti ke darshan kiye aur shraddha se Maa ke charno me apna mastak jhuka kar naman kiya. apne kiye par pashchataap use ho raha tha. sone ke chhatra ko chadhaane ki taiyyari hone lagi. parantu chhatra girkar toot gaya. kaha jata hai ki vo chhatra sone ka na raha, kisi vichitra dhaatu ka ban gaya, jo na to loha tha, na peetal, tamba aur na sheesha hi tha. Devi maa ne bhent ko asweekaar kar diya. Akbar ne Mata se shama ki bheek mangi. Badhshah dwara chadhaya gaya vah khandit chhatra, Jwala Mai ke darbaar me aj bhi rakha hua dekha ja sakta hai.

Boliye prem se....Sanche darbaar ki Jai. Jwala Mai ki jai.

Radha Krishna Vivah Katha


Dwapar yug me Bhagwati Radha aur Bhagwan Shri Krishna ka gathbandhan vasant panchmi ko hua tha, par kalyug me bhi yahi tithi ShriRadha-Shyamsunder ke milan ki sakshi bani. Is kathanak ka saar sanshep yeh hai ki 16vin shataabdi me Paschchim Bengal ke Medinipur Jile ke Dhaarenda gaon me janme Krishnadas apne guru se deeksha praapt karne ke baad Vrindavan jakar vahin rehne lage.

Ek roz Shri Radha-Krishna ki nitya raas sthali ke safai ke dauraan, unhe durlabh ratnon se jadit ek nupur mila. Krishnadas ji ko aisa laga ki yeh alaukik nupur Bhagwati Radharani ka hai. Radharani ko jab yeh baad maloom hui, to unhone apni sakhi Lalita ko vah nupur laane ko bheja. Lalita ji vridh Brahmani ka vesh dhar ke Krishndas ji ke sameep aain aur unhone nupur lautaane ka agrah kiya.

Krishnadas ne kaha "Mai yeh nupur seedhe uski swamini ko hi saupunga". Darasal veh Bhagwati Radha ke darshanon ke liye aatur the. Fir Radhaji ne unki ichha purti  ka nirnay liya. Radharani ke nirdesh par Lalita ji ne Krishnadas ko Radha mantra pradaan karke unhe Radha kund me snaan karvaya. Isse krishnadas ji ko Radharani ke darshan ki patrata praapt ho gayi, lekin darshan ke baad Bhagwati Radha se viraah ki kalpana karte hi Krishnadas ka man dukhi ho gaya.

Radhaji ne unhe saantwana dene ke liye apne hriday se Shree Shayamsunder ka shrivgrah prakat karke Lalita ji ke maadhyam se Krishnadas ji ko saunp diya. Prabhu ke is vigrah ka avirbhaav 1578 me vasant panchmi ko hua tha. Iske baad 1580 me Bharatpur riyasat ke tatkaleen raja ne apne khazane me prakatit Shyama (Radharani) ke shrivigrah ka vivah Vasant panchmi ke shubh muhurat me Vrindavan jakar Shri Shyamsunder ji ke saath karva diya. Unhone vahin par Shri Radha-Shyamsunder ke liye ek vishal mandir ka bhi nirmaan karaya.

Shri Krishnadas ke mahaprayan ke baad unke parampriya shishya Shreersikanand ne Shyama-Shyamsunder ki sewa ki. Vigat char shatabdiyon se Shreersikanand prabhu ke vanshaj Laal-lali (Shyam sunder-Radharani) ki puja-sewa tatha mandr ki vyavastha karte chale aa rahe hain. Pratyek varsh vasant panchmi ke din Shri Shyamsunder dev ka avirbhaavotsav tatha Shri Radha-Shyamsunder ka Vivahotsav atyant bhavya roop se manaya jaata hai. Isme asankhya shraddhaalu sammilit hote hain. Isliye Vasant Panchmi Shyamsunder Panchmi ke naam se prasidh ho gyi.

Shri Krishna Lori







Maiyaa Yashoda apne Kanhaiya ko sula rahin hain, parantu  natkhat Kanhaiya ko nind nahi aa rahi hai, isliye Yashoda ji tarah tarah se jatan karti hain,  kabhi thapki deti hain, toh kabhi lori sunati hain, kabhi Kanhaiya ko dikhane ke liye swayam sone ka abhinaye karti hain, jisse Kanhaiya so jaye ,lekin Kanhaiya kabhi sote hain toh kabhi ankhein khol dete hain.

Maha kavi "Surdasji" is drishya ka varnan apne pad me is prakar karte hain:



        Yashoda hari paalne jhulave ri
Yashoda hari paalne jhulave ri
Halrave, dulraye,malhave ri
joyi soyi kachu kachu gaave
Yashoda hari paalne jhulave ri -2

Mere lal ko aao nindniya
kahe na aani suaave
tu kaahe na vegi si aave
toh ko kanha bulaave
Yashoda hari paalne jhulave ri -2

kab hun palak hari moondi let hain,
kab hun adhar farkave,
sovat jani maon ho rahin,
kari-kari shayan batave,
Yashoda hari paalne jhulave ri -2

yehi antar akulaaye uthe hari,
jasho mati madhur gaave,
jo sukh sur amar muni durlabh,
so nand bhamini paave

Yashoda hari paalne jhulave ri
Halrave, dulraye,malhave ri
joyi soyi kachu kachu gave
Yashoda hari paalne jhulave ri -2
