Vaarta 1: Shri Damordas Harsani
Shri Damordas Harsani - was the First Vaishnav to get Brahmasambandh from Shri Mahaprabhuji and he
is considered as the "Representative of all past, present and future Vallabhi Vaishnavs". Shri Mahaprabhuji would repeatedly tell
him that "Damla, I created Pushtimarga for you". Shri Mahaprabhuji loved his Nirgun Sevak so much that 3 times He asked Shri
Thakorji that Damordas should live longer than him. As He is the Representative of all Vallabhi Vaishnavs, His Vaarta
gets first place in 84 Vaishnavki Vaarta too.
Prasang 1: At Shravan Sud Ekadashi night, at Govind Ghat in
Shri Gokul, Shri Mahaprabhuji had a Satvik thought in his mind that Shri Thakorji had given Aagna(order) to perform
Brahmasambandh of souls. But the Jeevs are impure and Brahma is Pure. So how can He perform Brahmasambandh??
That time, Shri Thakorji appeared in the form of Shri Gokulchandramaji and told to Shri Mahaprabhuji " That go ahead and perform
Brahmasambandh and I will make Jeev free from all sins (doshrahit). When this incident took place Shri Damordas was half
asleep and after talking to Shri Thakorji, Shri Mahaprabhuji asked "Damla did you hear anything??" Shri Damordas replied
"I heard everything but I didn't understand the Bhav behind it".
BhavPrakash: When you hear the Vachanamrut from any Vallabhkul Acharya (Gurudev) then
only you understand principles of Pushtimarga and also live by the principles. Whatever Shri Thakorji had told to Shri Mahaprabhuji
was easy to understand but unless you don't hear from your Nij Gurudev's mouth it does not enter deeply into your Nij Heart.
Shri Damordas wanted to hear from Shri Mahaprabhuji the very first principles of Pushtimarga and Shri Mahaprabhuji created
a Granth called "Siddhant Rahasyam" which explained the importance of Brahmasambandh.
Prasang 2 : Shri Mahaprabhuji loved his Nirgun Sevak so much that
3 times He asked Shri Thakorji that Damordas should live longer than him. When Shri Mahaprabhuji got Aagna from Shri Thakorji
to come back, that time Shri Mahaprabhuji thought about renouncing everything and undertake Sanyas. At that time both
Shri Gopinathji and Shri Gusainji were very young, so Shri Mahaprabhuji imparted ALL the Principles of Pushtimarg in the HEART
of Shri Damordasji.
Once Shri Gusainji asked His mother that ," I don't know anything about Utsav Prakar in our marg?"
His mother replied, "Then go and ask Shri Damordasji as your Father has Placed ALL the principles of Pushtimarga in the HEART
of Shri Damordasji".
Bhavprakash: When Shri Gusainji performed Shri Damordasji's Shraad rituals and in return Shri
Damordasji gives a Detailed explanation of one and half shloka of Siddhant Rahasyam as GuruDakshina to Shri Gusainji. Now
if we think that how can Shri Damordasji give explaination that too as a GuruDakshina to Shri Gusainji??? But Shri Gusainji
knew that ALL the principles are in the Heart of Shri Damordasji. Although the words came from Shri Damordasji's mouth but
the words were of Shri Mahaprabhuji. Shri Gusainji knew that Shri Mahaprabhuji was explaining him the principles via
Shri Damordasji's mouth.
Prasang 3 : Once at Shri Goverdhan Tarheti, Shri Mahaprabhuji while sleeping
had his face leaned on Shri Damordasji's lap and Shriji Bawa was approaching from Goverdhan towards Shri Mahaprabhuji, Shri
Damordasji thought this might disturb Shri Mahaprabhuji's sleep and taking into consideration of His Gurudev's comfort
by his hand sign he stopped Shriji Bawa. On realizing that Shri Damordasji stopped Shriji
Bawa, Shri Mahaprabhuji started scolding him. Then Shriji Bawa justified that Shri Damordasji did his Dharm only by thinking
Comfort (Sukh) for Gurudev. Gurudev comes First then Shriji Bawa because it is through Gurudev we can attain highest fruit
that is Love of Shriji Bawa.
Vaarta 2 : Krishnadas Meghan
In Pushtimarga, Lord of Pushti Vaishnavs is Lord Shri Krishna and Gurudev is Shri Mahaprabhuji. Even
though Krishnadasji being a Nirgun Sevak, he had Gurubhav towards his previous Guru. Krishnadasji always saw Prabhu in
Shri Mahaprabhuji and he thought it is because of his previous Guru he attained Lord in the form of Shri Mahaprabhuji. It
is true that Shri Mahaprabhuji is Shri Krishna Himself but Shri Mahaprabhuji's Prakatya is in the form of Gurudev and therefore
we should not have GuruBhav towards no one and only Shri Mahaprabhuji only.
As a result, even though Krishnadas being one of the closest Sevak of Shri Mahaprabhuji never attained
the highest fruit of Bhaktimarg that is Darshan of "Raas lila".
Prasang 1 - Krishnadas was always with Shri Mahaprabhuji during 3 Prithvi
Parikramas like a shadow and dutifully did all Seva and never left Shri Mahaprabhuji's company even in the worst conditions
and facilities in some villages. Once they reached Badrikashram. One big rock (shila) was coming down from the mountain and
Shri Krishnadas saw that it was coming towards Shri Mahaprabhuji and he went ahead and stopped it with his hands.
Prasang 2 - They went ahead of Badrikashram towards Vyasashram and geographical
location of Vyasashram was not even easy to get there. When they reached Badrikashram, Shri Mahaprabhuji told Krishnadas to
wait for him outside and Shri Mahaprabhuji went inside the cave to meet Vyasji. They had discussion on the following shloka
from Yugalgeet " Vaam Bahu krut Vaam Kapolo" for 3 days and they also had discussion on Vedant Sutras. When Shri Mahaprabhuji
came out of the cave he saw Krishnadas standing at the same position and happily Shri Mahaprabhuji asked, "You are still standing
here?? Why didn't you get shelter anywhere??" Krishnadas replied, "Maharaj, where should I go? My only shelter is your Feet.
Shri Mahaprabhuji was very Happy with Krishnadas.
Prasang 3 - During Prithvi Parikrama, Aapshri had arrived at Gangasagar.
While Aapshri was taking rest, Krishnadas was doing Aapshri's Charan Seva. That time Aapshri had a wish to eat Mamra
in his mind. Krishnadas came to know about this thought and when he saw that Shri Mahaprabhuji has fallen asleep he swimmed
across the other side of Ganga and entered in a village. He got Mamra and swimmed back towards Aapshri. Once he reached, he woke
up Aapshri by doing Charan Sparsh and then he placed Mamra in front of Shri Mahaprabhuji. Shri Mahaprabhuji was
very happy with Krishnadas.
In all the above 3 Prasangs when Shri Mahaprabhuji was very happy with Krishnadas Seva and all
3 times Krishnadas asked the same things (1) All principles of Pushtimarg gets fixed in my heart (2) I be forgiven for any
mistakes (3) Shri Mahaprabhuji should visit his previous Guru. Aapshri fulfilled his first 2 wishes but didn't like his 3rd
wish. Aapshri told him that He was so happy that if he had asked for "Raas Lila" or "Shri Thakorji's" Darshan, the highest
fruit in Pushtimarga he would have given him but poor Krishnadas failed to ask.
