resided on this earth between 1758 and 1823. Swami Rasik
Dev ji gave him Swami Haridas ji’s karuva, banki,
sumarni and gudadi - all his personal possessions along
with vaanis (books) of 6 saints. He left Nidhivan and
sat under a tree for meditation. Chaube ji Gokulchand
and Shyam ji Chaube secured this place by fencing it
with bamboo sticks. Hence it started being called as
Tatiya Sthan. They also suggested to him that on Radha
ashtmi, Sri Haridas ji’s appearance day should
be celebrated and since then the festival is celebrated
with lot of love, devotion and fervour. He authored
1200 dohas, 130 pad, 147 Ras pads, 50 Chaupais and 25
He is also considered as the incarnation of Swami Haridas
ji. He founded Tatiya Sthan and because of his blessings,
even today, this place is always full with devotees from all
places. Once he was completely engrossed in his meditation,
when goddess of nature appeared in his meditation and she
asked him whether she can beautify Tatiya Sthan. He nodded
in affirmation and she created a beautiful environment there
with lots of flowers, and greenery besides the banks of Yamuna
River. He was the head of Sthan from 1701 to 1766. His samadhi
is also at Tatiya Sthan.
Jaake Sri Haridas suhayi, tahi kahaa
gam hai re bhai,
So to ati anand mein dole, maha prem bhare vachnani bole.
Chinchin Priyavar rang badhave, Kunjbiharini
ke man bhaave,
Sri Lalit Kishori ih ras bhini, milat milat mein chah navini.
Hum Hari ke Hari hamre pyare,
Hari hamre hit rahat sadaai hum Hari ke ati hi sukhare.
Hum Hari Hari hum keli nirantar chin hu kabhu hot na nyare,
Hari hain Kunjbiharini rani rasik siromani pran adhaare.
