The Swami Haridasa Connection

In my wanderings through the internet-jungle, I have come across a website for the Swami Haridas Sampradaya – a modern offshoot of our own Shri Nimbarka Sampradaya.

Swami Haridas Ji belongs to the Nimbarka Sampradaya, and his followers are famous for (1) Shri Banke Bihari Ji – the main Mandir in Vrindavan is theirs and (2) Swami Haridas himself, the saint who caused the appearance of the Lord in the Deity of Shri Banke Bihari. Swami Haridas Ji (16th Century) is credited with many advancements in the Dhrupada style of classical music, and his famous disciple is Miyan Tansen, the court Musician to King Akbar. He was initiated to Swami Shri Ashudhir DevJi, and Swami Haridas Ji faithfully followed all the tenets of Sri Nimbarka Sampradaya, which resulted in the highest blessings – Actual Darshan of God…

So, there you go… this is why we follow the Nimbarka Sampradaya – not only is the philosophy authentic, but the methods result in perfection.

To find out more on the Haridasi Sampraday, the offshoot of our Nimbarka Sampraday, the link is on the right-hand column.

The modern offshoot sampraday that some of the zealous followers have created, led mainly by the learned Dr. Sharan Behari Goswami, has made many claims and they have also produced many publications which try to discredit the Nimbarka Sampradaya and its Acharyas in order to validate their claim as authentic Sampradaya.

All I have to say is that there is no mention of them in the scriptures as a separate Sampradaya. The accusations and defamations that Dr. Sharan Behari Goswami has made are VERY un-vaishnava. Therefore, do not be confused – Swami Shri Haridas Ji was, and will remain a faithful exemplary saint of the Shri Nimbarka Sampradaya.

Jay Shri Radhe!

Radhe Krsna Radhe Krsna Krsna Krsna Radhe Radhe!

Radhe Shyam Radhe Shyam Shyam Shyam Radhe Radhe!!
