Shri Sewak Vaani
श्रीहरिवंश नाम उच्चार, नित विहार रस कह्यो अपार | श्रीवृन्दावन भूमि बखानौं , श्रीहरिवंश कहे ते जानौं ||
श्रीहरिवंश-गिरा रस सूधी, कछु नहीं कहौं आपनी बूधि | श्रीहरिवंश-कृपा मति पाऊँ , तब रसिकनी कौं गाई सुनाऊँ ||
(श्री सेवक वाणी - 4.1)
The Stepping Stone & Foundation for Understanding "Nikunj Ras"
About Sewak Ji:
Shri Sewak Ji was Born in Gara (गढ़ा) Village 3kms from Jabalpur. He wanted to be initiated by Shri Hit Harivansh Mahaprabhu. However before Sewak Ji could reach Vrindavan, Mahaprabhu departed for his abode. Sewak Ji remained in Gara focussing completely on Shri Harivansh Mahaprabhu who appeared before him and initiated him into the Nikunj Upasana.
Sewak Vaani's recital (पाठ), contemplation & delving into its meaning chintan (चिन्तन) and leading life as per Sewak Vaani aachran (आचरण) will ensure a spiritual aspirant attain Shri ShyamaShyam. Hence, Sewak Vaani is the key to enter into Nikunj Ras in Sakhi or Dasi Swaroop.
Our material minds simply do not have the capability to imagine or engage in thinking of the Nitya Lilas of Priya Pritam. However, when we train our minds in the Upasana prescribed by our Acharaya, we gradually develop the capacity of holding this invaluable Ras (चित मैं रस उतरता है ). One cannot conceptualize Nitya Vihar Ras without living life as prescribed in Sewak Vaani.
It is imperative to read Sewak Vaani to understand the true nature of Shri Harivansh Mahaprabhu. Shri Van Chandra Ju (descendant of Shri Harivansh Mahaprabhu) was so pleased on hearing Sewak Vaani, he ordered Sewak Vaani be included along with Shri Chaturasi Ji.
Benefits of Reciting Sewak Vaani:
- Destruction of Material Desires - प्रपंच का नाश.
- Permanent Residence in Vrindavan - both physically and mentally. Opportunity to experience "Chidanand Vrindavan" (चिदानंद वृन्दावन )
- Develop Unfailing Love for Lotus Feet of Shri Harivansh Mahaprabhu.
- Understand the deep hidden meaning and emotions expressed in Shri Chaturasi Ji.
