Vaarta/Story (Aagnya) :
When Shri Gusaiji were out of town (pardes), Nikunjnayak Shrinathji told elder son of Shri Gusaiji - Shri Giridharji that he wishes to stay at his home.
This aagnya was whole heartedly welcomed by Shri Giridharji.
Then Shri Thakurji stayed at Shri Giridharji's home in Mathura - Satghara and every family member did Sarvasamarpan (Complete Self-surrender of
themselves and their belongings as well) to Shri Thakurji. One of the betiji mistakenly forgot to offer her baali (nose ring), so, Shri Thakurji himself asked for
the baali from betiji. Shri Thakurji stayed there for 2 months and 22 days and gifted them lot of happiness.
We must always remember this occasion whenever gurudev come at our place. This varta prasang initiated the tradition of Padhramni in Pushtimarg.
Also the Ashtasakha's express the same Bhaav in their pad:
Shri Soordasji describes this Bhaav as follows:

A Guru is one who is regarded as having great knowledge, wisdom and authority in a certain area, and who uses it to guide others (teacher).
In Sanskrit gu means darkness and ru means light. As a principle for the development of consciousness it leads the creation from unreality to reality,
from the darkness of ignorance to the light of knowledge.
In its purest form this principle manifests on earth as a divine incarnation (saint), a person with supreme knowledge about God and all creation.
