Sewa Kunj-Vrindavan-Vraj Mandal

This divine place is located in the divine land of Vrindavan, Vraj Mandal.

This is a picture gallery of the divine place.

Sewa Kunj also known as Nikunj Van is a van (forest); it has a mandir for Shree RadhaKrishn. It is believed that RadhaKrishn visit here every night. The nij mandir is decorated for Them and all necessary items placed here for the night. This small mandir is decorated with all leelas painted on the walls which is very pretty.

This sacred place is known as Sewa Kunj because it is believed Shree Krishn did sewa for Shreemati Radharani here. This leela is depicted in paintings which show Shree Krishn combing Radharani’s hair, helping Her get ready for the Raas Leela.

Some paintings also show Radhavihariji massaging Radharani’s charan when She gets tired during the Raas leela. These paintings are a depiction from the shloks found in the sacred Hindu scriptures.

The short trees as you will notice in the picture gallery, always grow towards the ground, meaning that they always stand bowing to the Divine couple. Though in the day this place is flooded with monkeys, as soon as it nears evening they all leave the place empty; no living being stays in the area which is shut totally for the night.

There is a Kund here known as Lalita Kund.

Here are some pictures from my many visits to the divine Sewa Kunj – Nikunj Van at Vrindavan Dham. I do hope you enjoy going through them.

Jai Shree RadhaKrishn!

This monkey is ready to pounce on any bhakt, who walks unawares;for snatching some food

I love coming back agai and again to enjoy the serenity of this place

This view is of late evening; note how slowly, everything begins to take a magical look.. as if getting ready for the Divine leela..

Maybe because the sthal is privately owned for generations, like several others in Braj Dham; it lacks proper maintenance

About Abha Shahra Shyama

I was born and continue living in Bombay, India. As a serious seeker on the spiritual path, I live my life today in total surrender to my God. In total surrender to Divine ShreeNathji who had accepted to be my Maha Gurushree some years back; I believe I am the luckiest soul in this world. And since then He has kept to His word, and made me a part of many Divine Leelas. In fact there have been those precious moments when I have been graced with ShreeNathji’s Divine Presence and the gunjan (echo) of Shreeji’s Divinely sweet voice, where He talks and plays various leelas. (It is like a repeat of the 84 Vaishnavs or 252 Vaishnav Ki Vaarta, in today’s time period). At times this is the voice of a very young infant; at other moments like an older child or at times an adult talking about various happening… I have learnt to live my life on the highest truth – “No matter what others say or think; if you are following the soul’s demands towards your God, move on, do not stop, only because some people do not have the right understandings”.

        Anadhi ji.
        Whatever attracts, Whatever takes you deeper in your bhao and Bhakti is correct for the bhakt. I do hope you are able to achieve your goal of gopi prem for Shree Thakurjee.

    all of images and think is so nice thanks sewakunj

  16. Brij lal says:

    Really it is true that Lord krishan resides here but wecannot see this Ras leela with these worldly
    eyes. Without the blessing of Shree jee we cann”t go to vrindavan. It is 100% correct that Thakur
    ji can meet us in Vrindavan if love him by heart .

  17. Rita Mahajan says:
