SHRI GOVINDLALJI MAHARAJ SHRI
Shri Govindlalji was the eldest of the three sons of Shri Vallabhlalji. He was the 14th generation from
Shri Vaalabhaachaaryaji(Shri Mahaprabhuji).
He was very particular in seva of Shri Gokulchandramaaji and had great aasakti and devotion in him.
He was a very gentle-hearted and a soft spoken person and was always engrossed in Prabhu Chintan, Smaran.
He had a very sharp memory. He never forgot anyone whom he came in contact with.
He had to take up the responsibility of the Panchampeeth at a very tender age due to the Leelaa pravesh
of Shri Vallabhlalji and he did bear this responsibility very nicely.
He was a great scholar in sanskrit and could recite shlokas on a variety of subjects. His effortless sanskrit speech was well known throughout the
He was very fond of 'Goth'(treat of daal-baati-churmaa). He used to take all friends, family members, and the Sevaks(mandir workers), to 'Aanaddaadri
(Ghaataa)' and 'Shrikund' - Shri Vallabh's baithakji, which are a beautiful place near Kamvan, to have a treat of Daal - Baati - Churmaa.
He had a strong faith in Shri Girirajji. Once he all alone went for Shri Girirajji's Parikrama, when everyone were late. But, to everyones surprise when he
came back, due to his Charisma and Kripa of Shri Gokulchandramaaji, thosounds of people were accompanying him, including the Maharaajaa of Bharatpur
with the chanting of jaijaikaars.
Throughout his life,he initiated thousands of people in Pushtimarg. Always, Shri Govindlalji was found reciting the Ashtakshar Mantra indiffirent of
whether he was among people or was alone.In february 1991 Shri Govindlalji did Leelaa Pravesh, in Kamvan.
