SHRI NIMBARKA SAMPRADAYA

Sri Sri Sarveshvara Bhagavan (centre) being worshipped by Shri Nimbarkacharya (right), his successor Shri Shrinivasa (left top) and his other disciple Shri Audumbaracharya (left bottom) on the banks of the Yamuna in Shri Vrindavana Dham. (Taken from the Radha Nimbarkavihari Mandira at Nimba Grama)

The Nimbarka Sampradaya has been on the planet since the time of Sri Nimbarkacharya. According to the Bhavishya Purana, Nimbarka Bhagavan was born 5104 years ago in Vaidurya Pattanam in Maharashtra, India. Modern scholastic investigation shows that Sri Nimbarka was en vogue 50 years before Shankaracharyas time.

Before the Sampradaya was known as the Nimbarka Sampradaya, it was known as the Hamsa Sampradaya, the Sanakadi Sampradaya (or Kumara Sampradaya) and the Devarshi Sampradaya. This is because the first Acharya was Sri Hamsa Bhagavan, the Swan incarnation of Shri Radha Krsna as explained in the 11th Skandha of the Shrimad Bhagavatam.

His disciples were the four sons of Brahma – Sanaka, Sanandana, Sanatana and Sanat Kumara. They wrote a treatise on Ashtayama Lila, and Gopi Bhava Upasana based on what Shri Hamsa Bhagavan taught. This is widely known as the Shri Sanatkumara Samhita.

 Sanakadi Rsi

They initiated their younger brother Narada Muni. Narada Muni is famous throughout all Puranic literature as the mind of the Lord. He is the foremost expert on Devotion, and his Narada Bhakti Sutras are the manual on devotion. He based this on the teachings he recieved from his Gurus.

Narada Muni then initiated Sri Nimbarka into the teachings that Sri Hamsa had propounded. Nimbarka, also known as Aruni because of being the son of Aruna Rishi, is mentioned in the Narada Bhakti Sutra as an excellent authority on Devotion, on a par to Hanuman and Vibheeshana.

Sri Nimbarkacharya had four main disciples – Sri Gauramukhacharya, Sri Audumbaracharya, Sri Laksmana Bhatta and Sri Srinivasacharya. Shri Shrinivasacharya is the incarnation of the Panchajanya Shankha of Shri Radha Krsna, and as such, he was anointed the next leader of the Sampradaya.

This tradition was carried on by successive disciples until Sri Harivyasa Devacharya in the 14th Century CE decided to make 12 branches (or Dvaras) in order to spread the teachings of the Sampradaya. The two main branches were the Parashurama Dvara and the Svabhurama Dvara.

Shri Parashurama Devacharya was anointed as the next main Jagadguru Nimbarkacharya and told to preach in Mathura and Rajasthan. Shri Svabhurama Devacharya was given the areas of Haryana and Panjab. Both are members of their Guru’s Sampradayas and their is no difference between the two.

There are many followers of Svabhurama Dvara still in Vrindavan. Notably, the Kathiya Baba Ashrama is well established – its saints donning a chastity belt made of wood as an austerity. Also, the home of our Sadgurudeva Ji Maharaja belongs to the Svabhurama Dvara.

Shri Radha Gopala Mandir at Shri Bihari Ji Ki Bageechi was founded by Swami Shri Haripriya Sharan Devacharya Ji Maharaja in the 19th Century. He was an excellent scholar, who memorised all 18,000 verses of the Srimad Bhagavatam, the 742 verses of the Srimad Bhagavad Gita etc. He reformed the initiation practises of our Sampradaya – because at that time, some members of the sampradaya were initiating devotees into various unauthorised Mantras. In the Diksha Tattva Prakasha which he authored, he re-instated the Atharvaveda’s Gopalatapini Upanishad’s Gopala Mantra as the Original Mantra to be initiated into using evidence from the Visnu Yamala in which it states that the mantra given by Hamsa Bhagavan to the Sanakadi Rishis was the 18-syllabled Gopala Mantra of the Atharvaveda.

After Swami Haripriya Sharan came Swami Dampatti Sharana, and after him came the most respected Swami Shri Lalita Sharana Devacharya Ji Maharaja who attained abode in Nikunja only last year at the age of 103 years old. He is lovingly remembered as Parama Gurudeva, or ‘Dada Guru ji’. He accepted our Guru Maharaja as a disciple when Guru Maharaja was only a little boy of 4 years old, and taught him lovingly how to read, write, to serve the deities and to serve the Ashrama. He is the inspiration on which Sadgurudeva Ji Maharaja draws on whenever he gives his lectures. It is through his blessings, Guru Maharaja reveals, that Shri Golok Dham Ashram could be accomplished.

Currently, the Parashurama Dvara is established in Nimbarka Teertha (Salemabad), Rajasthan. Here, the 48th Jagadguru Nimbarkacharya Swami Shri Radhasarveshvara Sharana Devacharya is the present presiding Acharya over the whole Sampradaya. The worship and care of the most Holy Sri Sarveshvara Bhagavan (the Shalagram handed down originally from Hansa Bhagavan to Sanakadi Rishis, and then to Narada, Nimbarka etc etc) is performed by him daily. He is known as ‘Sriji Maharaja’ to the faithful followers.

He is faithfully served exclusively by the Jagadguru, and still gives Darsana wherever Shri Shriji Maharaja is staying – click to enlarge)

Shri Nimbarka Sampradaya, under the leadership of the most Holy Sri ‘Sriji Maharaja’ has progressed astoundingly. The regeneration of Sri Nimba Grama – the site of the Ashrama of Shri Nimbarkacharya near Govardhana and Barsana – was completed due to the efforts of Shri Shriji Maharaj. Also, the Mandir constructed on the birth site of Sri Nimbarkacharya in Mungi Village near Paithan, Maharashtra is also due to his grace. All who seek the shelter of Shri Shriji Maharaja are accepted, none are turned away. For a manifestation of the qualities of the ancient Vedic Rishis, one needs look no further than the lotus feet of Shri Shriji Maharaja.

His Divine Grace, the 48th Jagadguru Shri Nimbarkacharya Pithadhishvara, Swami Shri 1008 Radha Sarveshvara Sharana Devacharya Ji (Shri Shriji) Maharaja. (click thumbnail for larger image) 

 Both Shri Sadgurudeva Ji Maharaja and Jagadguru Nimbarkacharya Shri Shriji Maharaja are tirelessly working for the propagation of this oldest Vaisnava Sampradaya. Sri Sriji Maharaja also visited Sri Golok Dham Ashram, New Delhi on the 24th February 2004 at the opening ceremony of the Mandir. He blessed the efforts of Sri Sadgurudev Ji Maharaj and showered his grace on all who were present.

      Kalpesh Nimbark + 91 9825205120 / 9426715848

  6. My name is Nipurn Nimbark. I am originally form Palitana Gujarat. amd I am living at Adelaide Australia. I want to know that originaly we were know as Sadhu or Brahmin.and also want to know that Why we called Ramanadi sadhuand from when?
    I also want to know more abot our Nimbark Sampradaya.

  7. Nimbarka Bhagavan incarnated as a Tailanga Brahmana; but later became a Vaisnava Sannyasi. All the Jagadgurus of our line have been Sannyasis (renounciants), however in the 1500’s, Jagadguru Swami Shri Harivyas Devacharya gave permission to his Householder disciples to initiate. Those who went to Gujerat also gave the family title ‘Nimbark’.

    Ramanandi Sadhus are a completely different Sampradaya to us; founded by Ramanandacharya, who comes in the lineage of Shri Ramanuja.

    We are Nimbarki’s by the grace of Shri Radha Shyamsundar 🙂 So you belong to the householder lineage of nimbarkis…kind of like being a Nimbarki from birth. To confirm your adherence, you would need to seek out a Guru and take initiation from him.

    Jay Shri Radhe!!!

Plz refer me the book about Lord Radha. I have also want to know that any version of Vagbat GITA have written by the Nimbarka.
    Thank you

  12. Sir,
    In gujarat The people with Surname Nimbark, Nimavats called them as RAMANANDI but as per history Ramanandis are followers of Shri Ramananda Charya. also i have seen that Nimbarkis are worshippings lord Shri Rama in gujarat specially in saurashtra region. I want to know how they have started worshipping Shri Rama? as originally as per their first name they are Nimbarks or nimavats. How the merraiges between Ramanandis and Nimbarkis were allowed.?
    I have learned through the old man and woman in our family that Between Ramanandis and Nimbarkis(Vaishnav) Merriages are possible since last 150 years or more.
    Were it was also possible before 500 years?
    What you think?
    Please someone tell me also the TOP question which i want to be answered that why Nimbarks and Nimavats in saurashtra started Worshipping Shri Rama?
    You can see in most of Saurashtra Area in gujarat that in each village there is a Temple of Shri Rama and Also its possible that is is being maintained by Nimbark or Nimavat at lots of places.
    Thanks

    i want a continue member of this site

  46. i like this site so much because there is all information about nimbarks.

  47. Jai Shree Krishna. I am very thankfull to create this web. This is very wounderfull and nice work.

  48. The following concerns the Indian Governments latest idea to spoil the landscape of Vrindavana by building a flyover at Keshi Ghat:

    So here is the sum and substance: All this preaching has increased the attraction of Vrindavan to people from every corner of the planet. But this has not just had the positive effect of making more Vaishnavas, it has also resulted in so much pressure on Vrindavan’s infrastructure that it has made this project necessary in the eyes of the government.

    Since we have all helped contribute to the problem, we must now participate in finding solutions. That begins with stopping the bridge, by making the government officials aware that any solution must be based on an awareness of the sacred character of Braj.

    So all Vaishnava leaders: Put your weight behind this effort, please. Rally the troops: Have petition signing marathons, letter-writing parties. Have people coming to the temples sign the petition and send emails. Print out the emails and snail mail addresses with a sample letter and give them to everyone.

    Our goal is 100,000 signatures by Jan. 10. If this is achieved then hopefully the Indian Supreme Court will sit up and take notice!

    Please sign the following Petition and ask all disciples and friends to do likewise:

    http://www.petitiononline.com/NObridge/petition-sign.html

    Your servant,
    Kesavananda Das

    • Dear Prabhuji,
      Your idea is good, but I beg you to use the word ‘Hindu’ instead of ‘Vaishnava’. Already Hindus suffer because of the lack of unity. If we still insist our sectarian idea, then it will further the division between us. So please. I apologize if I have spoken anything wrong.

    I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF SHANTIDOOT SHRADHEY DEVKI NANDAN THAKUR JI IS AUTHORISED BY NIMBARKA SAMPRADAY TO GIVE DIKSHA INITIATION OR NOT

    • I am not sure about that – although Nimbarki’s prefer renounciate Gurus (i.e. Gurus who have taken Sannyasa and are Swamis), there are a few householder lines. Perhaps you could direct that question to his organisation.

      Radhe Radhe.

  76. I wanna know a question please answer me yet i need it not for argument. Do you accepted Gaudiya Vashinva? Do you accepted them in Sampradaya? How about the others like Vishnu Siwami VaballaSampradya Ramanuja and Mahdava?? Do you accpect them as the Sampradaya? I really need it please answer me the yet…..

    • We accept Gaudiya Vaishnavas as Vaishnavas because they are a branch of the Madhva Sampradaya founded by Shri Madhvacharya Ji Maharaj. The original 4 Sampradayas now have many branches – even ours has the Haridasi/Lalita Sampradaya in Vrindavan (Based out of Tatia Sthaan and others). So too, Gaudiyas are a branch of Madhva, even though their philosophy more closely resembles ours due to their association with Shri Vrindavan Dham via Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. It is the duty of all Vaishnavas to respect the other Vaishnava traditions as they are all founded by Bhagavan Shri Krishna.

    • Nimavats were originally, as the name suggests, Nimbarkis – Vaishnava’s who were initiated in the Sampradaya (tradition) of Bhagavan Nimbarka – which you can read more about on this site. However, especially in Gujerat, after a while, the saints preferred to settle in Vrindavan and so their ashrams and mandirs were taken over by Ramanandis, who also became the gurus of the people near them. This is how the Nimavats/Nimbark – surnamed people have ended up Ramanandi. Their original affiliation as their name suggests is to the Nimbarka Sampradaya.

      Jay Shri Radhe Shyam!
