Shri Nathji appeared from the Govardhan Hill, which Krishna held for seven days to protect the Brajavasis from Indra's wrath, in the early fifteenth century. For many years, He continued to play there with His devotees, who sang His Lilas o5 sports. When he decided to depart for Mevar in Rajasthan, to fulfill a vow He had made to a devotee, He went in procession and was the source of many adventures.

Today, Shrinathji is one of the best known deities in India. His temple in Rajasthan, near Udaipur, is visited by many millions of pilgrims annually.

This prose work, famous in its original Brajbhasa version, evokes the spiritual atmosphere of the times of Shri Vallabhacharya and his son, Vittalnathji, also known as Shri Gusainji. The adventures of the deity in Braja and during the journey, even at Nathdwara itself, are delightfully recounted here.

The extraordinary, historical account of Shri Krishna's 15th century appearance on the Govardhan Hill as Shri Nathji, is one of the most famous Krishna deities in India.
