SHRI MAHAPRABHUJI'S BAITHAKJI AT SHETH PURUSHOTTAMDAS' HOUSE
JATANVAD, VARANASI-221001 (U.P.)
Here, Shri Mahaprabhu Vallabhacharya stayed at the house of Purushttamdas and celebrated Lord Krishna’s appearance day. During the festivities, Krishna’s parents and friends all appeared. Everyond present had this divine vision and Shiva joined in the celebrations.
During those days the followers of the Mayavading school of thought were harrassing Shri Mahaprabhu Vallaaabhacharya. In order to silence them, he wrote a short work called patravalamam and put it up on the wall of the main Shiva temple in Benares and Shiva confirmed that, “Shandaracharya appeared to establish the false theory says is correct.”
Shri Mahaprabhuji stayed in Benares for many days. In the holy city he received his sacred thread and was later married.
