The main center of Bhakti Marga India is Shree Giridhar Dham Ashram, located in Vrindavan. Guruji calls Vrindavan “The Heart of the Universe”. Vrindavan is a place, where stories of Radha and Krishna’s pastimes are imprinted and emanate from every corner, every tree.
SHREE GIRIDHAR DHAM
The Shree Giridhar Dham Ashram in Vrindavan was inaugurated and officially opened for the public on December 1, 2016. It is headed by Swamini Vishwamohini. To open the ashram in Vrindavan was the long-standing desire of Paramahamsa Vishwananda, as Vrindavan is very special for all the Vaishnavas. The temple is devoted to Sri Giridhari and His companion Yamuna Devi. This is the only temple in Vraj where Yamuna is Krishna’s consort.
STAY AT THE ASHRAM
Staying and serving in Vrindavan is a great blessing, as it helps to deepen your love and bhakti towards God and Guru.
Shree Giridhar Dham Ashram offers rooms for the devotees for short or long stay. When you come to the Ashram as a guest, you are traditionally invited to offer 3 hours seva daily under the guidance of a seva coordinator. It is your voluntary service, your offering to the Lord.
Shri Giridhari is Krishna, who raised the Govardhan Hill on the little finger of His left hand to save all the inhabitants of the land of Vraj from the flood sent by Indra.
Among all the Lord’s Lilas at Vraja, it is this lila that is very important for understanding the relationship between the Guru and the disciple and the need for self-surrender on the path of bhakti. Whatever adversity our mind (Indra), full of desires and limitations, brings upon us if we trust Krsna in the form of a Guru and resort to His help, He will gladly accept us under His protection.
