Shri Bhandirvan Baithakji Number 21

From Kolilavan, Mahaprabhu Vallabhachayra proceeded to Bathain, Kotvan, and stayed the night at Shesasia. Then he continued to Ramghat, Gopighat, Gangavan, Nivarnvan, Chinghat, Nandaghat and then finally to Bhandirvan where he held a seven reading of the Shrimad Bhagavatam. Their Byastirth a religious head of the Madhava Sampradaya said to Mahaprabhu Vallabhcharys, “I have over 100,00 disciple and many famous kings are among them. Madavendra puri is my disciple and his disciple is Krishna Chaitanya. I have come here to drop my body. I feel that you are capable to take over my position, so I am giving you 100,00 rupees and my religious position. Shri Mahaprabhuji told him that he would reply him the next morning. That might, the servants of the Lord came and beat Vyastirth who cried, “why are you beating me? “The Lord’s servants replied, “you have the pride to think that you can give something to Mahaprabhu Vallabhacharya. Your words to his were most unbefitting. If you wish to fare well, go and grasp hi feet, seek his protection.

The following morning, Vyastirth apologized for his prideful words and prayed to made a disciple. Shri Mahaprabhuji initiated him into the path of Grace and then went on to Mansarovar stopping on the way at Blevan and Bhadravan.
