    Jatipura

    Madhavendra Yeti of Chaitanya Sampradaya used to reside in the taleti of Shri Girirajji in Vraj. Vrajvasi called him by name ‘Jai Bawa’. Vrajvasi started settling near his house. This is how the village got its name “Jatipura”. According to a second opinion, Shri Gusaiji’s second son, Shri Giridharji was famous by the name Yatiji. So because of this also it is believed that this village is called Jatipura. First, this village was famous by the name “Gopalpur” as Shrinathji’s one of the names is “Gopal” because he loves cows. Here a big Gaushala was made for Shrinathji’s cows. Thus this village was called “Gopalpur”. In vaartas this place is popular as “Gopalpur” only. Jatipura name is not traced in vaartas. So it can be speculated that this place must have got the name Jatipura only after the era of Shri Gokulnathji & Shri Hariraiji.

    It is situated near Giriraj Baug. When Shri Thakorji disappeared from Rasa Leela, at that time, Shri Gopijans tried to find him. They also sung Gopi Geet but could not find him. So they cried (rudan) over here. That is the reason why it is called Rudrakund which is made up from their tears.

    Shri Mahaprabhuji’s Bethak

    When Shri Mahaprbahuji used to come to perform seva of Shrinathji in the temple, at that time after performing seva he used to sit on a nearby chotra & do Bhagwat Parayan. Once, it was late in making the samagri, at that time Shri Swaminiji came with a golden plate. Shri Mahaprabhuji told Damodardasji that today both the swaroops have taken pains (parishram) so from today do not offer Rajbhog immediately after Shringaar.

Parikrama of Girirajji

parikrama

Shree Krishn Chander (as mentioned in the Garg Samhita), also did this parikrama. Shri Vallabhacharya, Shri Gusainji have also done the parikrama. Bhakts do this parikrama in different ways: Walking on foot; Walking with a pitcher of milk, with the milk flowing very slowly through the vessel; Dandwat parikrama is the most tough, where the bhakts do a complete dandwat all through the parikrama. This is difficult as it may take nearly 10 – 15 days for completing. The parikrama begins after a dandvat to Girirajji and Mahaprabhuji. Many bhakts like doing this parikrama bare foot. The parikrama maarg is also divided in three different ways. There is the Panch kos (15 kms), this route goes from Govardhan village to Anyor village and skips Radha Kund in the parikrama. Saat kos (21 kms), this begins from the Mukharvind at Jatipura goes to Govardhan village-Mansi Ganga-Udhav Kund-Radha Kund-Anyor village-Govind Kund-Puchri village-Surbhi Kund completing at the Mukharvind.
