ABOUT SHYAM SUNDER SHREENATHJI- Shreenathji is a revelation of Dwaparyug’s God Krishna, in Kaliyug. Around 5000 years back divulging from his own halo & integrating his divine energy, God Krishna formed Shreenathji’s Bal-Swaroop especially for Maiya Yashoda while leaving Gokul, so that she can shower all her love & caress on this Bal-Swaroop.
After passage of 4500 years of Kaliyug i.e. approx. 500 years back, this divine energy of God Krishna revealed its existence as ‘Shreenathji – Devdaman’ on the divine mountain Giriraj ji situated on the holy land of Vraj. Shreenathji is God Krishna thyself, an only God of Kaliyug , who is not born but emerged underneath the rock. The purpose of Shreenathji’s revelation was to perform miraculous Leelas to re-establish the lost connection between Jeev & Parmatma i.e. Re-connecting the soul and supreme.
Divinity and popularity of Shreeji’s Leelas have influenced innumerable devotees from different walks of life and religions. It was Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb who was trying to horrify Hindus by destroying their temples but couldn’t hurt Shreeji , a bit. It was Akbar Badshah’s wife Tajbibi who was Shreeji’s greatest devotee, used to wait for hours to play Shatranj with Shreeji. It was Raskhan for whom Shreeji was his Mehboob, whose one glimpse was enough to dwell Raskhan’s heart inPrabhubhakti. It was Shreeji’s Trick to delude Mughal soldiers because of which Shreeji’s Sevak appeared like Lions and they ran away.
