Sri Sri Vinod Bihari Das Babaji Maharaj, Barsana :: Disciple of Prabhupad Sri Sri 108 Sri Tinkodi Goswami ji Maharaj
~~ Sri Sri Vinod Bihari Das Baba Ji ~~
Sri Sri Vinod Bihari Das Baba ji is a gaudiya vaisnav saint. After blessing various cities of India, Baba finally has taken shelter under the divine service of radha rani in his ashram (named priya kunj ashram) in peelipokher, barsana, since 2006. Baba is the true example of mercy that the supreme lord possesses and is sure to be present in the exalted devotees of lord, like baba is. If you want to see someone with extra-ordinary attraction, love, sweetness and yet, extra-ordinary humbleness, Baba is the true destination. Baba is someone who will shower an ocean of mercy on you even if he don't know you. Just like Srimati Radhika Rani, he would not see whether you deserve it or not, he would anyhow love you unconditionally.
Baba is the source of mercy not only for the residents of Sri Dhaam Barsana, but also for the fallen souls all over the world. Even this website came because of his causeless mercy, so that countless devotees who are living abroad, do not remain untouched! No one remains who is untouched from his mercy, even the animals... the love baba showers to monkeys on his way to sri ji mahal is a must to watch event. Everyone is amazed to see how all monkeys respond to baba, they take tofees, and biscuits from his hand as if they are all trained. Yes! they are trained but only under the divine love that baba showers on them. He says that they are not mere monkeys, they were all exalted devotees who begged to be monkey of sri dhaam barsana and so we must love them.
Every evening at oonchi atari at sri mahal, one can recieve great benefit from his satsang on various topics. Baba presents too difficult concepts of Bhakti in such a simple way that anyone can learn from his divine satsang. He would cite things from his deep knowledge of scriptures and then will explain it in the way you can understand easily. Baba just originates a river of divinity and emotions towards Sri Sri RadhaMadhav Sarkar in which everyone can take bath.
Words like talent and perfection would not suit if I talk about the qualities of Sri Baba ji. His Kirtan and Bhajan compositions are something that will create enough emotions in you to move on the path of Bhakti. Every evening, in Priyakunj Ashram, Baba sings for Sri RadhaMadhav. There is a melodious enchantement of
"Hare Krishna Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna Hare Hare Hare Ram Hare Ram, Ram Ram Hare Hare"
and " Nitai Gaur Hari Bol "
and many more vaisnav geets.
From the unlimited teachings of baba, his book "Obstacles in Bhakti" is a must-read for any vaisnav who want to live an offense-less spiritual life. For us, it is impossible to explain who baba is. Words can be just small offering in his lotus feet. We pay thousands and thousands of obeisances unto his lotus feet and elevated vaisnavs like you, and beg sorry for any mistakes that are sure to be committed by fallen souls like us.
Also, for the website and other web channels, we seek feedback and suggestions from you on how and where we need to improve. For this, you can write on our Facebook page (here) or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
