Our first visit to Ghasiyar

..श्रीनाथजी तुरंत मुझे जवाब देते हैं, “मुझे अच्छी तरह याद है, घसियार हवेली मेरा पुराना घर है, मैं वहां कभी कभी जाता हूँ। आज मैं भी तुम्हारे साथ चलूँगा”..



5th June 2007


When doing some research on ShreeNathji details for His website, (www.shreenathjibhakti.org); I came across this place called Ghasiyar. This is the Haveli that Shreeji had stayed for nearly ten years.

It looked very interesting and to know further details and get some photos for the website a visit was essential. I explained to Sudhir bhai about this divine place, and that this had been Shreeji’s home for ten long years. Sudhir bhai agreed to visit, so today we would do our Guwal and Rajbhog darshans here at Ghasiyar.



मुझे घसियार दर्शन करने की बहुत ही कतूहलता हो रही थी; उसके बारे में पढ़ने के बाद लगता था की बहुत ही पवित्र और शुद्ध जगह है। इसलिए आज प्रातकाल 4 बजे, जब गुरुश्री के साथ मंगला दर्शन के लिए हवेली के बाहर खड़ी थी, मैंने श्रीजी से वार्तालाप करने की कोशिश करी; उन्हें बताने के लिए की हम आज उनकी पुरानी हवेली पर जा रहे हैं, जो घसियार में है।

I am super excited to visit this place, as it sounds so pure and sacred. So today early morning when waiting with Gurushree for Mangla darshans to open, at around 4am, I tried talking to Shreeji, informing Him about our visit to His old Haveli at Ghasiyar later that day.


श्रीनाथजी तुरंत मुझे जवाब देते हैं, “मुझे अच्छी तरह याद है, घसियार हवेली मेरा पुराना घर है। मैं वहां कभी कभी जाता हूँ. आज मैं भी तुम्हारे साथ चलूँगा”।

To my amazement, ShreeNathji replied immediately, “I remember it very well. Ghasiyar Haveli is my old home. I visit there sometimes. I will also come with you’ll”.


मुझे इस समय यह महसूस होने लगा की मैं श्रीनाथजी का ही कुछ हिस्सा हूँ, और उनके पुराने घर पर जाना मेरे लिए उनके जितना ही रोमांचक हो रहा था; ऐसे प्रतीत हो रहा था की मैं भी यहीं की हूँ।

It felt to me as if I was a part of Him and going to visit His old Home was as nostalgic for me, and felt as if I belonged here.


९-९।३० बजे, श्रिंगार दर्शन करने के बाद हम घासियार हवेली के लिए निकल गए।

वहाँ पहुँच कर श्रीजी बहुत ही ख़ुश थे। उनकी दिव्य मजूदगी का एहसास पूर्ण था। श्रीनाथजी ने हमें बताया की आज दर्शन खुलेंगे तब वे ख़ुद अंदर निज मंदिर में बिराजेंगे।

So around 9-9.30 am, after completing the Shringar darshans at Nathdwara Haveli we left for Ghasiyar .

Once there at Ghasiyar later in the day, Shreeji was very happy. I could again feel His Vibrational Presence, talking to me from inside; telling me how happy He is to be here and how He moves around the entire area enjoying Himself tremendously. He told me He would also be Present inside the Nij Mandir today when both the darshans opened.



श्रीजी की मौजूदगी का फिर एहसास होता है। उनकी मोहक आवाज़ में वे शिकायत करते हैं, "यहाँ तो बहुत गर्मी है, लेकिन कोई बात नहीं। मैं खुश हूँ की तुम लोग ने याद करा। यहाँ और कोई आता ही नहीं है”।

Again I felt Shreeji’s Presence around us complaining like a small child, “It is very hot here, but I am very happy that you both remember this place, anyone hardly visits this place.


हमें प्रसाद में आज खोपरा पाक मिला जो की बहुत ही जियादा मीठा था। मन में मैंने श्रीजी को यह बताने की कोशिश करी, की यह खोपरा पाक कितना मीठा और स्वादिष्ट है। "अरे वोह तो होगा ही ना, मुझे अधिक मीठा प्रसाद पसंद है", श्रीजी जवाब देते हैं।

We received Prasad of ‘Khopra pak’ today; which was extremely sweet and tasty. I tried telling Shreeji in my mind how extra sweet and tasty the Prasad was. “Of course, it will be”, Shreeji again said, “I like eating extra sweet offerings”.


Later I mentioned to Sudhir bhai about this anubhuti. At that moment he silenced me, saying “Yes, I know; you are very lucky. Hardly anyone would be able to experience all the Divine closeness with Shreeji”.


Gurushree Sudhir bhai and I came here at Ghasiyar to study the details. We took pictures from outside, as similar to the Nathdwara Haveli no photography is allowed in the mandir premises. We stayed on for nearly 3-4 hours, enjoying the serenity and sacredness of the whole area. We managed to do darshans of Gwal and Rajbhog.


My Dear ShreeNathji Baba ki Jai Ho!


Our next two visits to Ghasiyar were on the 10th April 2014;18th June 2015; and of course Shreeji always accompanied us here.
