Mukhya Dwar is at Rudr Kund
Shree GokulNathji is a small golden Shree Krishn Swarup with four Bhujas; He stands with two Swaminis, one on each side.
His right raised hand holds the Giriraj Govardhan, while His lower left hand holds a Shankh. He plays a flute with His other two hands. The Swaminis on either side of Him are Shree Radha and Shree Chandravaliji.
This Swarup of Shree GokulNathji Appears when Shree Krishn lifted Giriraj Govardhan to protect all the Vraj wasis.
Shree GokulNathji belonged to the family of Shri VallabhAcharya’s wife and was presented to him at the time of their marriage.
Shree GokulNathji resides at Gokul Dham in His Haveli, constructed in the 18th century.
Seva was first done by Shri Aacharyacharan Shri Mahaprabhuji.
Mool Aacharya’s Sevya Swarup is Shri Gokulnathji.
Presently it is Sevya Swarup of Chaturth Peethadheeshwar 108 Shri Devkinandanji.
Shri Gusainji speaks of His Form and Leela: “Shree GokulNathi picked up Giriraj Govardhan with His left hand and then held it with His right hand while playing His bansuri with His other two hands, filling all the Vrajwasis with extreme joy.
At times He even held Girirajji on the end of His bansuri. Shree GokulNathji’s lower left hand holds a Shankh, the divine form of water.”
Jai Shree RadhaKrishn
