Shri Lakshman Balaji Baithakji Number 38

Here, Shri Mahaprabhuji’s father Lakshman Bhatt left his body.



When Shri Vallaabhacharya lived with his father in Benares many religious scholars use to come and discuss religious topics with him before he had even turn 10 years old. Once his father invited all the priests for a feast and at that time, young Mahaprabhuj prove to everyone there the supremacy of the path of Loving Devotion. Mahaprabhuj then felt an urge to head south and made a pilgrimage to all the sacred places. His father, attached to his son, could not bear such a period of separation and accompanied him with his wife journeyed to Lakshman Balaji and camped at a lovely site. Later, when the entire family went to the temple of Lakshman Balajiwhile Mahaprabhuji’s father was adorning the Deity, the Lord yawned and Mahaprabhuji’s father entered into His mouth and achieved the final liberation. His mother was grieved but was confronted by the soothing words of her son who explained that his father’s spiritual form is the divine radiance of Shri Krishna and that he had just returned to his eternal position.

After performing his father’s last rites, he told his mother to proceed with his brother to his uncle’s house at Vidhyanagar while he stayed for 15 days under a tree near the temple. There he gave a seven day discourse on the Shrimad Bhagavatam and Lord Lakshman Balaji came to participate. After the discourse was completed Shri Mahaprabhuji went to the temple and made the Lord a food offering and perform His divine worship. The Lord appeared to Shri Vallabhacharya three other times, but these meeting have not been recorded.
