About Manasa Pavana Ghat

It is said that Manasa Pavana Ghat is managed by Radharani, and we hear from Krishna dasa Kaviraja Goswami that Radharani and her girlfriends bathe here every day at noon. It is declared that one who bathes in this ghat will attain love for Krishna equal to that of Radharani.

There is a pilu bush at the top of the ghat upon which the gopis would hang their clothing when they took bath in Shyama Kunda. Vishvanatha Chakravarti Thakura’s Bhajan Kutir is here at Manasa Pavana Ghat. And it is said that he would discuss Radha and Krishna’s pastimes with this pilu bush. The bush is accepted to be a brahman from Kasi who resided here at Shyama Kunda and was a direct witness to Radha and Krishna’s love sports.

Srila Raghunatha dasa Goswami’s Bhajan Kutir is also in this place. Raghunatha dasa Goswami preferred to engage in his meditative bhajan (worship) out in the elements on the banks of Radha and Shyama Kundas. And despite the repeated suggestions of the other Goswamis that a shelter (bhajan kutir) be built for him, Raghunatha dasa Goswami refused. Then one day, Sanatana Goswami came to see Raghunatha dasa Goswami at Radha Kunda. The sun was blazing brightly, and Sanatana Goswami was shocked to see that Srimati Radharani was standing behind Raghunatha dasa Goswami holding her own shawl over his head to shield the Goswami from the sun. As Sanatana stared in disbelief, two tigers approached Radha Kunda for a drink. Suddenly, Sri Krishna appeared from the jungle holding a bow and arrow, standing guard to protect Raghunatha dasa Goswami from the tigers. All this while, Raghunatha das Goswami sat in deep meditation oblivious to the fact that Radha and Krishna were personally protecting him. When Sanatana Goswami later informed him of what he had seen, Raghunatha dasa Goswami was mortified that his stubborn refusal to build a shelter was causing Radha and Krishna to serve him. He finally agreed that the other Goswamis could build him a bhajan kutir.
