Shri Giriraj Govardhan





Shree Krishn Abhishek

(This is a short description which has been translated from the Hindi version of the Holy Garg Samhita written by Shri Garg Muni)


Later, Indr Dev, His pride broken, bows before KrishnChandr, along with all the other devtas in an isolated spot on the Govardhan Giriraj.

Indr prays to Shree Krishn asking for forgiveness and singing His glories; as he realises that Krishn is Supreme.

(There is a strot in Garg Samhita on this prayer, reciting which is considered very auspicious).

On completing this stuti the devtas and Indr do pranam. Then Surbhi cow comes on Giriraj Govardhan and bathes Krishn Chander with her milk (Dugdh abhishek)

The Gajraj Airavat fills his four trunks with Gangajal and does abhishek on Shree Krishn. Rejoicing, all devtas, gandhrav, kinnar rishis do stuti with chants of ved mantras and flowers.

On completion of this abhishek the great parvat Govardhan is over joyed and in experiencing this anand it begins to melt and flow from all sides. Then Bhagwan Krishn blesses it with His Hast Kamal (Hand print); which is yet visible on Govardhan parvat.

Nearby there is also the Charan print. Close to this Surbhi cow has also left her hoof print.

During this pavitra snan of Shree Krishn, the Gangajal that flowed from the sky created the Mansi

Ganga. The milk that flowed from Surbhi cow which bathed Govind formed the Govind Kund.
