Experience of "Live" RadhaKrishn Urjas at Divine Banshivat
…I lit dhoop (incense) in all four corners; this is to purify the environment. The Radhe Krishn Dhun played in the background. Sudhir bhai and I sit with our backs to the gate.

About Banshivat Maharaas Sthali
…There are two mandirs here; one is the small 'Charan' mandir which is situated in the center of the parisar. These divine 'Charan' of RadhaKrishn were established in 1820, by a great sage, Girdhari Sharn Dev acharya; he was a great devotee and served Ras Bihari with a lot of bhao, which pleased the Divine, and Radha Ras Bihari gave Their Charan (footprints) to him. The same 'Charan', (foot prints) are being served by the present mahants.
The Banshivat mandir was founded by the Acharya of Nimbark sampradaya -Shri Nivasachary
The other large mandir was built by King Oyal (from Lucknow) in the 1900's; in which the proper sewa is done daily of the Deities of Radha Krishn today.
Sri Sri Bhatt Dev is believed to have painted the Pichvai also, which shows the MahaRaas leela, and which now hangs behind the Charan in the small mandir.
