Jai Jai ShriGokulesh,

ShriSubodhiniji :: -- (3 / 1 / 2 )

"Gruhesthite Utkarstam Na Bhagwadiyatvamatren Kintu BhagwataSaha Sthitya Bhagwatkaryatham va : Anyatha na Sthavyam Iti Stithi "

====>ShriMahaprabhuji here gives the beautiful aagyna, the heart of pushtimargiya jeevs, Seva and how ? How to serve ShriThakurji in Pushtimarg ??

Meaning ::- The aatmanivedi jeev (brahmasambandhi) who follows bhagwatseva at own gruh (house) with full dedication all being with swamitva and swatma to ShriThakurji in seva, is the only right way, only possible at own house ; and by no other means is possible, is the aagyna

Jai Shree Krishna If I understand this correctly, Shree Vallabh here directs Jeevs that Shree Thakorji can be realised only through Gruhaseva. And without Doing such a seva, realisation is not possible. Now Gruhseva not only means Seva in our own house, but if looked at in the broder sense, it also includes Havelis which are the homes of Vallabhkul or have been created by Vallabhkul. What Shree Vallabh is advising is not to do seva like in temples, Open it in the morning to the conveneince of public, then again in the Evening, lock it up in the night and go home. Which is why In Pushtimarg, Not temples, but Havelis are built, were Shree Thakorji is always under the care of someone, and never left alone. Furhter, History stands witness to the fact that, After doing patotsava of Shreeji bawa, Shree Vallabh himself appointed Shree Ramdasji to attend to shree Thakorji, with the help of the vraj vaasis. Today too, in Havelis, the parampapra remains, and help is rendered by Vaishanavs. Shree Gusainji initiated the parampara of the Seven Gadhis, by handing over each of the Saptacharyas a Swaroopa and asking them to individually start spreading the light of Pushtimarg. And the same is happening today too. Shree Gusainji surely knew that this paramapara will be followed, by the future generations too. Did not Shree Gusainji know of Shree Vallabh vani ? Or have become so capable that we seem to interpret it better?....

Jai Jai ShriGokulesh,
|| ShriGokulesho Jayati ||
In the same context of GRUH SEVA, we find further another aagyna given by ShriMahaprabhuji in another granth of Bhakti-Vardhini.

"Bijdhadhyarprakarastu Gruhe Sthitva Swadharmaat || Avyavrutto Bhatkrishnam Pujaya Shravanadibhihi || 2 ||"

====> To make bijbhaav strong (Bijdhadhyarprakar) you (tu) is the way (to) without doing other sang (avyavrutto) regarding own religion (swadharmaat) in house (gruhe) stay (sthitva) with pooja (pujaya) with shravan etc (shravanadibhihi) Krishna's (krushnam) to do bhajan (bhajet) Here shrimahaprabhuji gives the aagyna "To make one's bijbhaav strong you should not do any others sang regarding own religion but stay in own house and do bhajan and shravan etc of ShriKrishna. "

Jai Shree Krishna With all humbleness Gopalji, Avyavrutto here I think means Udyog.... For in this Shloka, Shree Vallabh says.... Following the ones dharma, one should stay at home, discard any kind of udyog too, if necessary, and through Pooja and Shrawan, remember Shree Krishna, by Bhajan (Seva), and hence increase Beej bhaav. For in the very next Shloka, Shree Vallabh says... if one has complete/total confidence in Shree Thakorji, then Shree Thakorji will ensure his welfare. However, if ones confidence has not attained such a level, then such a being, in his free time from SEVA, may indulge in Udyog.... The very first line being... Vayvrrttopi Haro Chttam, Shravandi Yatet sada. Meaning... If one has to do some Udyog, then also one should do so remembering Shree Thakorji, at all times.

Jai Jai ShriGokulesh, This sloks translation can also be found in one pushtimargiya website, with good english translation. So would be more clear. "But the way to make this see take firm root is to remain a householder and follow one’s rule of life. The one who is not distracted should devote himself to Krushna by means of ritual image worship and be hearing and so forth (- viz follow the Navadha Bhakti). Even one who is distracted should fix his mind constantly on Hari by practicing “hearing” and so forth.||2||"

Jai Jai ShriGokulesh,

|| ShriGokulesho Jayati ||

ShriBalkrishnaji Explains the concept of only Gruh Seva in the Vyakhya of the 2nd sloka of Bhakti Vardhini. Aapshri explains "Atre Gruhsthanvidhanam Swagruhdhisthit swaroopbhanparityagen Tatkarane Bhakti Na Bhavati Iti Bhaav Suchitam Bhavati " Means : --If we don't do seva of own Bhagwat Swaroop residing at our house, and do seva at different places, then that seva will not lead to Bhakti........................

Jai Jai ShriGokulesh,
PanchSloki
"Gruham Sarvatmana Tyajyam Tachhet Tyaktum Na Shakyate || Krishnartham Tat Prayujit Krishna Sansarmochaka ||1|| ==> Means ::-- House is mostly not suitable to live, so do tyag of house. But it is not possible for all to do tyag of house. So engage seva of ShriKrishna at house. Why? Because those jeev who brings swaroop of ShriKrishna at own house becomes ready to serve ShriKrishna, that jeev serving ShriKrishna gets free from all worldly matters as prabhu itself eliminates all the worldly matters And Prabhu donates Nij-swaroop-aasakti-roopa Pushti Bhakti.

Jai Shree Krishna True. Gruhast SEVA is the Ideal seva. And this what is being proclaimed in the above Vaani. But also it is a fact that not all have been entitled to do Gruha Seva. This fact we observe in the 84 varthas. Such beings who do not do Gruh Seva, are also aatur to have darshan of Shree Thakorji. By the Grace of Gobalaks of Vallabhkul, this aaturtha is accomplished, in Havelis. Also in the good old days, were communications had its own restrictions, Havelis were the only place to know the various nuances of Seva. Further, Even those who did do SEVA at home, got inspired by visiting havelis, doing darshan and learnt many things including the correct way of offering shrungaar etc.

Gopalbhai, you rightly quoted the "Shlokas" about the importance of Gruh Seva and vaishnavas must always try to maintain ashakti in their own sevya swaroop given by shree gurudev. But their do exist the importance of havelis too. Since, i also learnt several things from havelis. After all, the bavashri's who allow vaishnavas to do darshan of their thakurjis are too much kripalu and they also might have taken this decision correctly after all they are shree vallabh. So i think points of both shreekanthbhai and gopalbhai are right in thier own repect. Jay Shree Krishna

Jai Jai ShriGokulesh, Haveli's r the part of Gurudwar and not the dev-sthaan independently. But if any vaishnavas if visited baroda ( as i m from baroda, so i don't know of other places ) there r many private haveli's which had no satta of shrivallabhkul balak, only the niyamak is the trustees. So the importance only becomes of The dev, which is residing in that haveli's. So ShriMahaprabhuji had the dirghdhristi, from where aapshri gave the above quotes. I don't say to follow what i say, but this is just the fact. And thanks Dhawalbhai. Learning from gurudwar is a good thing, so is the haveli's-gurudwar and not the haveli's-devsthaan.

Jai Shree Krishna Agreed Gopal bhai. As Vaishnavs, we cannot build a large building, call it a haveli, place our Shree Thakorji there and offer darshans, collect bhet etc. etc. That is incorrect.
