resided on this earth from 1561 to 1659 and was born
in Delhi. He was Sri Vitthal Vipul Dev ji’s disciple
and his parents were Sri Surdhvaji and Srimati Godavari
He was well versed in literature, and composed many
pads, dohas sarotha, chaubla etc. He spread the message
of Rasopasna and was a rasik of very high caliber. He
was completely detached from the worldly pleasures and
served his Sampraday with full heart and soul.
Early morning, he used to bathe in the Yamuna River
and then used to meditate upon the divine couple. With
him started the legacy of a long tilak till the tip
of the nose.
This happened when Shahjahan called all the saints to his
court but also asked them to drop the tilaks. Sri Biharini
Devji went to the court with tilak till the tip of his nose
and justified it by interpreting the king’s order in
a different manner. He lived in his house for 33 years and
in Vrindavan for 65 years. His samadhi is in Nidhivan.
Paanch dugan das bas kare,
Man su Biharinidas.
Mili ananya satsang so,
Bhajan badhe vishvaas
Sab thakur ko thakur hari ta thakur
ko thakur thakurain,
Maanu daanu daipranpriya pati rati jachatu partaap duraain.
Niju ras reeti prtiti prakat kari dhanya janam maanat pari
Kar kankan darpan dekho na Sri Biharinidas lahe man bhaain
