Story Of Krishna Bringing Ganga To Mathura Vrindavan – Manasi Ganga In Govardhan

Manasi Ganga is an important temple and holy lake located at Govardhan town in Mathura Vrindavan (Brij). As per a popular story Krishna brought Ganga to Govardhan Hill to fulfill the wishes of his foster parents, Nanda and Yashoda. Nanda and Yashoda had heard of the glories of the Holy Ganga. They knew that anyone who took a bath in its holy waters would be rid of all their sins and would reach Heaven. They too were interested in bathing in the holy river. However, they could not travel such a long distance. Nanda once told Krishna that he and Yashoda would like to take bath in the holy river. Krishna then meditated and Goddess Ganga appeared before him. When Krishna told Ganga about the wish of his parents, she immediately went about fulfilling the wish. Soon a portion of Govardhan Hill is flooded with the waters of Ganga. The place came to be known as Manasi Ganga. The temple dedicated to Manasi Ganga is located at the center of Govardhan Hill on end of the lake. Devotees s

Story – What Matters Is Not Lineage But Talent And Knowledge

Once, there lived an Ayurveda Acharya named Jeevak, who learned that what matter is not lineage but talent and knowledge. Jeevak was found one day in the forest by Prince Abhaya Kumar. The prince adopted the abandoned child. He gave him the best education. When Jeevak was in his teenage, he wanted to know about his parents. Abhaya Kumar did not want to hide the truth so he told him the truth. Jeevak now became gloomy as he was not aware of his parents, lineage, caste, and religion. He thought this would be a great advantage in the world as people identified and respected only those who were born in families. Orphans were looked down. Abhaya Kumar could not bear the mental agony through which Jeevak was going through. He asked Jeevak go to Takshashila and do further studies. Jeevak was not ready to go but Abhaya Kumar told him that there are people in the world who gave more importance to the truth than lineage. Jeevak reached Takshashila and sat before an acharya

Why Bhagavan Vishnu Should Himself Come To Rescue Elephant Gajendra?

The folk tales of Akbar, the great Mughal emperor, and his courtier Birbal are legendary and much quoted in India for their humour, wit and sharp intelligence, often at the expense of the envious fellow courtiers of Birbal. There is a story about how Akbar questioned Birbal why Bhagavan Vishnu should himself come to rescue elephant Gajendra? – the famous Gajendra moksha incident in the Srimad Bhagavad Purana. He could easily have sent someone else to rescue the pitiable elephant. As emperor, Akbar had very many courtiers to do his bidding so as not to waste his time with trivial matters. If Vishnu was a god why could he not do the same? Birbal replied that he would answer the question but it would take time to explain, and left it at that. Birbal was responsible for taking care of a beloved child who was the son of Akbar. Birbal watched over the child with loving attention. One day Birbal arranged for a beautiful stone image of the boy to be carved and placed the statue at the edge
