Jai jai shri gokulesh
In the treatise of 11 couplets Shri Vallabhacharyaji has advised the devotees of the path of grace to recite "Shri Krishnashraya Stotram" regularly before Shri Thakorji So that they may attain his Refuge.
There are 3 main things discussed here.
1) Evil influences in the Dark Age.
a) In the Dark Age people have grown extremely hypocritical due to caste, creed, knowledge etc.
b) All holy places have been occupied by out caste parsons and have turned it into sinful places.
c) Holy places like
Ganga are disappeared because of wicked people.
d) Even the virtuous people grown bewildered owing to their egoism and are following the vile path to achieve their selfish ends and endeavoring to gain prestige.
e) The Vedic and other hymns have lost its existence due to the ignorance of recitation, meaning and usage.
f) All the performance, Vows etc enunciated in the Vedas are lost due to controversies about scriptures.
So just to get rid out of this evil influences one should take a refuge of Lord Krishna.
2) Why to take Refuge of Lord Krishna:
a) God is not worldly, Akshar Brahma is not full of Bliss this aspect is partially present and only Thakorji (Shri Krishna) has this aspect fully and is considered as Purna Purushottama.
b) Shri Krishna is capable of doing everything so one should take his refuge to get the grace.
3) Praying Shri Krishna with Pure Heart:
a) Wisdom, Patience, Devotion, Wealth etc is not present in me.
b) I’m powerless, Mean-less and full of sin but you are graceful, as you have not seen the sins of King Ajamil and gave him salvation.
c) Therefore, I pray for you so that I can get your Refuge.
This Granth was written by Shri Vallabhacharya for Bulla Mishra.
