Seva Kunj-Vrindavan-Vraj Mandal

श्री सेवा कुंज निकुंज वन के नाम से भी जाना जाता है, जो वृंदावन धाम में परिक्रमा मार्ग पर स्थित है।

हम कई बार यहाँ पर आनंद ले चुके हैं, और इस पोस्ट में आप सभी भक्तों के लिए कुछ फ़ोटो रक्खे हैं, आशा करती हूँ आप सभी को आनंद आएगा

Few pictures from my many visits to the divine Seva Kunj – Nikunj Van at Vrindavan Dham. I do hope you enjoy going through them. This Gallery is from earlier before the place has been changed beyond recognition in the name of restoration

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

गोस्वामी श्रीहितहरिवंश जी ने सन 1590 में अन्य अनेक लीला स्थलों के साथ इसे भी प्रकट किया था

Seva Kunj was discovered by Shri Hitharivansh Mahaprabhu in Year 1590. Shri Harivansh Mahaprabhu is considered as an avatar of Shree Krishn’s Flute.

रासलीला के श्रम से व्यथित श्री राधाजी की भगवान् द्वारा उनकी चरण सेवा किए जाने के कारण इस स्थान का नाम सेवाकुंज है

यह दिव्य वन वृंदावन के प्राचीन दर्शनीय स्थलों में से एक है. श्री राधादामोदर जी मन्दिर के निकट ही कुछ पूर्व-दक्षिण की ओर यह स्थान स्थित है.

मन्दिर में एक शय्या शयन के लिए है, जिसके विषय में कहा जाता है की रात्रि में श्री राधा क्रिशन साक्षात् रूप में आज भी इसपर विश्राम करते हैं ।

Seva 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.

जब रास करते करते राधा रानी जी थक जाती है तो बिहारी जी उनके चरण दबाते है. और रात्रि में शयन करते है आज भी यहाँ शय्या शयन कक्ष है जहाँ पुजारी जी जल का पात्र, पान,फुल और प्रसाद रखते है, और जब सुबह पट खोलते है तो जल पीला मिलता है पान चबाया हुआ मिलता है और फूल बिखरे हुए मिलते है.

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

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

Pure Ruj of Divine Vraj. Seva Kunj also known as Nikunj Van is a van (forest); it has a mandir for Shree RadhaKrishn. It is believed that Shree RadhaKrishn visit here every night.

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.

सेवा कुंज में ललिता-कुण्ड है. जहाँ रास के समय ललिताजी को प्यास लगने पर कृष्ण ने अपनी वेणु(वंशी) से खोदकर एक सुन्दर कुण्ड को प्रकट किया.

There is a Kund here known as Lalita Kund.

Seva Kunj-Lalita Sakhi Kund

भक्त रसखान व्रज मंडल में  श्री राधा कृष्ण को खोज खोज कर हार गये, अन्त में यहीं पर उन्हें दर्शन हुआ। उन्होंने अपने पद में उस झाँकी का वर्णन इस प्रकार किया है – देख्यो दुर्यों वह कुंज कुटीर में।बैठ्यो पलोटत राधिका पायन ॥

Jai Shree RadhaKrishn!

    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 .
