Shri Shri 108 Vishnu Das Baba of Bhagvat Niwas

2023.03.30 (Vrindavan Today News): As we commemorate the Disappearance Day anniversary of the great saint Shri Shri 108 Shrimad Shri Vishnudas Baba Ji Maharaj, let us take a look back at some of the significant events of his holy life.

Shri Vishnu Das Baba Ji was born to Shri Nandlal and Giri Bala in a Vaishnava family of West Bengal. He was born in the year 1916 AD in the village of “Sal Chuda” in Bankura district.  His parents named him “Badal,” and he was brought up well in a cultured family. Babaji heard about the glorification of Braj Dham. He became attracted to the beauty and spirituality of Braj that he ran away from home twice. He was caught by his brothers both the times and brought back home.

Undeterred, Baba Ji made his third attempt to leave home on the footsteps of Shrila  Raghunath Das Goswami, and this time he succeeded. He was only 15 when he left his home. He had only ten rupees in his pocket. He reached Kashi where a kindhearted ticket collector helped him board the train to Mathura. Unfortunately, a swindler took ten rupees from Baba Ji and gave him a fake ticket. Despite this setback, Baba Ji reached Hathras Junction and eventually made his way to Vrindavan.

Upon reaching Keshighat in Vrindavan, Baba Ji jumped into the Yamuna River, believing that Radha-Krishna resided in its waters. Thankfully, he did not drown and was saved by the boatmen and priests at the ghat.
