About Carolinas Vallabh Pushti Samaj:
Charlotte Vaishnavas now forms the Vishnava Vishnava community during the year 2000, to worship Shrinathji, Shree Yumanaji and Shri Mahaprabhuji at Pushkar Marg Tradition.
For many years, Charlotte Vaishnavs continued Pushti Bhakti Seva by celebrating Vaishnav utsavs and reciting vaishnav paath on a regular basis. In 2013, Charlotte Vaishnavs formed Vallabh Pushti Samaj of Carolinas (VPSC) and decided to build Haveli in Charlotte with Inspiration and Blessing of Shrinathji and inspiration from our spiritual benefactor Pujya Goswami 108 Shri Vrajrajkumarji Mahodayshri (Pujya JeJeShri).
Pujya JeJeShri was born in Kartak Vad Bij on November 18, 1986. He is the eighteenth descendant of Jagadguru Shrimad Vallabhacharya Mahaprabhuji. As a young and lively Vaishnavacharya, his unwavering dedication to his duties towards religion, culture and especially young people makes him a center of divine inspiration. His main goal is to awaken the younger generation. Pujya Shri Vrajrajkumarji Mahodayshri has created a way for young people today to put Hindu cultural and religious values into practice in their daily lives. Pujya Shri launched the Vallabh Youth Organization to motivate more and more people towards cultural ethics, spirituality and happy life.
The mission of VPSC is to promote Pushti Bhakti Marg and encourage selfless love in the human being for God Shrinatji, Community and World. The VPSC’s mission includes youth activities for constructive and creative work, mobilizes positive energy, promotes religious and social education to support the roots of Indian culture and all the good it represents.
Pushtimarg is one of the main sects of the Hindu religion founded by Jagadguru Shrimad Vallabhacharya (Shri Mahaprabhuji). Pushtimarg has been dominant for more than 500 years and has deep roots in India and around the world. The founder of Pushtimarg is that Sri Mahaprabhuji was none other than the incarnation of the god Shri Krishna. Shri Mahaprabhuji is one of the five main acharyas of the Hindu religion, the other four acharyas are Shandaracharya, Shri Ramanujacharya, Shri Madhavacharya and Shri Nimbarkacharya. These acharyas have a very significant contribution to the education of the Hindu religion.
During the second pilgrimage of Shree Mahaprabhuji, Lord Krishna appeared in the form of Lord Shrinathji in front of him and told him to establish Pushti Marg and spread Pushtimarg by handing him “BRAHAMASAMBANDHA” to the divine souls who are unconsciously separated from God Shri Krishna .
It was the night of Prabodhini Ekadashi (Four Days before New Moon Day) of Shravana’s Auspicious Month. Lord Shrinathji taught him the Brahamasambandha mantra and asked him to bring the separated souls to his seva. Shree Mahaprabhuji asked Shree Damodardasji, who was sleeping there, whether he had heard Shree Shreenathji’s vote or not. He replied that he had heard it but did not understand it. Then, the next day, Shree Mahaprabhuj gave Brahasambandha to Shree Damodardasji, giving him the honor of being Pushtimarg’s first Vaishnav.
The three pillars of Pushtimarg are 1) Raag (traditional Haveli music), 2) Bhog (offering pure vegetarian food, except onion, garlic, cabbage and root vegetables), 3) Vastra and Shringar (Dress up Shrinathji with beautiful clothes, hats and jewelery ornaments).
Pushtimarg teaches selfless love for God by rendering service to God (“Seva”).
