Vaani Path ( Recitation )
नाम-वाणी निकट श्याम-श्यामा प्रगट, रहत निशि-दिन परम प्रीती जानी |
नाम-वाणी सुनत श्याम-श्यामा सुबस, रसद माधुर्य अति प्रेम दानी ||
नाम-वाणी जहाँ श्याम-श्यामा तहाँ, सुनत गावंत मो मन जु मानी |
बलित शुभ नाम बलि बिशद कीरति जगत, हौं जो बलि जाऊँ हरिवंश-वाणी ||
Importance of Vaani Paath:
"Vaani" refers to the verses and phrases composed by Rasik Saints to describe the beauty and pastimes of Shri PriyaPriyatam. These are not mere poetry or imagined compositions but descriptions of the real, ever lasting Lilas that are visible to Rasik Saints engrossed in Prem Ras (प्रेम रस).
Hence each and every word is precious and has the supreme power of drowning an aspirant in Nitya Vihar Ras (नित्य विहार रस).
RadhaVallabh Upasana lays great emphasis on the recital (गान) and meditation (चिन्तन) of such verses as a means of attaining Shri LadliLal. Pujya Shri Maharaj Ji encourages his disciple to take the shelter of our Vaanis. He motivates us to memorize a few verses and constantly sing them while doing daily household chores.
Vaani Paath / Evening Session is held daily at Radha Keli Kunj (राधा केलिकुंज) and includes recital of the following:
- Shri Hit Chaturasi Ji
- Shri Sewak Vaani
- Shri Radha Ras Sudha Nidhi
- Shri Dhruv Das ji krit, Bayalis Lila
