Shri Radhakrushna Kund Baithakji Number 9

Within the holy waters of Radha kund lake Shri Radha’s divine palace. On the side of that sacred lake, under a tree, Shri Mahaprabhuji resided for one month. The seat of Shri Gusainji is also situated there.



One morning, shri Mahaprabhuji saw Shri Radha-Krishna walking hand in hand into the Govardhan mountain. Shri Mahaprabhuji, who knows the inner intentions of all of Shri Krishna’s lilas accompanied by a few disciples, approached Divine Couple. The other Vaishnavas upon seeing the Lord lost complete awareness of their material bodies and fell lifeless to the ground. The Divine couple then ordered Shri Mahaprabhuji accompany them. Theree days later, Shri Mahaprabhuji returned to that spot and found his disciples in the same unconscious condition. Shri Mahaprabhuji, after telling His beloved disciple Damala about what had happened, took some water from His pot and sprinkled it all over His disciples who immediately regained consciousness.

Later, Shri Mahaprabhuji proceeded to the eight lakes of th eight gopis situated around there, and took His bath all of them. Shri Mahaprabhuji explained that the greatness the Radha and Krishna lakes lies in the fact that Radha’s lake Radha dug out with Her finger-nails, while Krishna’s lake the Lord dug with His flute, thus making the waters of both of the lakes extremely sacred.

From Radha Kund Shri Mahaprabhuji proceeded to Kusumasarovar lake and after bathing there He met with Lord Kishna’s friend Uddhava who asked Him to explain the famous Bhramar Gita, An ode to a Black Bee which appears in the tenth canto of the Srimad Bhagavatan and reveals the Gopis highest love for Lord Krishna. Shri Mahaprabhuji then recited one sloka to Udhava and in explaining just one fourth of that line took nine hours. For that entire time, Shri Mahaprabhuji remained standing and was unaware of anything else, being totally lost in the nectar of the Srimad Bagavatam. Uddhavaji then said that he was not able to listen to the entire Bhramar Gita, but that he would like to listen to the purport of just a single sloka. Shri Mahaprabhuji then discussed for thirty-six hours the purport of that single line. All of the devotees present there became so engrossed in the discourse that they did not suffer any sleepiness, hunger or even thirst.
From there, Shri Mahaprabhuji proceeded to Gwala Pokhar and then to Mansi Ganga at Govardhan where Shri Mahaprabhuji, after bathing, took His seat under one Chhokar tree.
