Govardhan Dhari dasa - Vrindavan, India
last updated 24th October 2014

Today I feel like sharing something amazing that happened to me the day before kartik.
When i first came to braj I would wander about Govardhan and admire certain Giriraj Shilas and imagine how they would be worshipped.
So one day I went to my favourite spot and came across a crystal clear shiny shila and I was perplexed. I asked my baba mate and he said it was a Balaram Giriraj Shila.
I put Him back and left in amazement.

A year later I was told how rare and powerful such shilas were. And every time i went after that i could never find Him again.
However just after i arrived back and went to thank Giriraj for allowing me back in the Dham, without looking and a few years later,
I saw Him just looking at me with his hands raised up towards me like a baby . I quickly grabbed Him in excitement and took Him to the Baba who exclaimed loudly the word "DAUJI!!".
I was instructed to take Dauji home and do 'khoob puja' (loads of worship).

Now He wishes to give Darshan

This is my "baba mate"
