Description
SHRI GUSAINJI'S 252 VAISHNAVA DISCIPLES

The 84 Vaishnavas are part of Shri Mahaprabhuji's divine form. They are predominantly "nirguna", that is, they are all beyond material qualities. Their stories and bhavas are told in the accounts of the 84 Vaishnavas. The 252 Vaishnava disciples are all parts of Shri Gusainji's divine form. They are of three types; 84 are predominantly tamasi, a virtue that can roughly be translated as obstinate. The other two groups of 84 are chiefly rajasi and satviki, passionate and pure. These are the groups within the 252 Vaishnava disciples of the bhakti master, Shri Gusainji, whose form holds all spiritual powers.

One day when Shri gusainji was in a joyous mood, he mentioned to his wife, Shri Rukminiji, that his bhaktas represented all the various parts of his body. His wife questioned,"What part of your body is your desciple Chachaji?"

Shri Gusainji responded, "Chachaji is the pupil of my eye."

Later, when Chachaji stubbed his toe Shri Gusainji's eyes hurt. When Rukminiji asked him why his eyes hurt, he replied, "My eyes ache because Chachaji is in pain."

Shri Gusainji's eyes recovered when Chachaji to was better. In this way, Shri Gusainji showed his wife the form of the accomplished bhakta. One should never offend a bhakta for there is little difference between Krishna and His bhaktas.

In Shri Mahaprabhuji's Pusti Pravaha Maryada" he explains, "A soul that is Pusti is different. There is no doubt about this. Grace-filled souls appear for God's pleasure. Their forms, incarnations, virtues and actions are all similar to Hari's. There is no adequate comparison for either God or His bhaktas."

In this way, Shri Gusainji showed Rukminiji the authentic nature of the bhakta. This teaching will strengthen the faith of the practitioner. The actions of bhaktas should never be scrutinized.

Now Shri Gokulnathji will recount the esoteric stories of Shri Gusainji's 252 Vaishnavas, while Shri Harirayaji sheds additional light and meaning to the text.

Testimonials

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!
Charles (Rudra)
I just wanted to say that this is I think my 3rd (big) order from you, and the last two times I received immaculate service, the books arrived well and it has been a very pleasant experience. Just wanted to say thanks for your efficient service.

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
