Gopichand ki Gufa in Achalgarh

Gopichand ki Gufa in Achalgarh

250 steps to reach Shri Adeshwar Jain Temple and 100 more steps to Gopichand ki Gufa.

Bhabhoot Singh – The guide. He is from Beda gaon, Bali in Pali (Rajasthan), approx. 100 km from Mount Abu. Seventy plus age but the enthuse exists to show devotees Gopichand ki Gufa. I started following him. The path is old surrounded by dilapidated fort walls. To reach a cave is a little brave act because one can watch thousands of feet below the car parking area straight from the stairs. No railing around the stairs. Be cautious. We continue walking and with a few steps, we reach Mahakali temple and the cave.

During Tretayug Gopichand – The King meditated inside the cave. It is also said Pandav brothers visited this cave and meditated. There is a small closed passage inside the cave that reaches Jawai Bandh. Though it is closed now but it is said the Pandav brothers reached Jawai Band via this passage.

Little flow of water via cave walls as we enter the cave while bending our back. The atmosphere is dark, peaceful, and cool. Mahakali Temple is in front and the cave is behind.

In earlier times Mount Abu was the location for meditation. During that time Rakshashas try their best to disrupt sages. Sage Vasistha (Guru of Sage Vishwamitra) performed Yagya (holy fire) and four youths arose from the flames – Chauhan, Parmar, Solanki, Parihar. They killed Rakshasas. Peace restored.

Mount Abu was the capital of the Parmaras dynasty. Currently, Raghuveer ji is the King. Paschimi (west) Banas river was shown by the guide flowing, and he said – Purvi (east) Banas river that falls into the Chambal river is flowing on the other side of the mountains.

It was a useful knowledgeable tour. And then Bhabhoot Singh showed Ram Naam (name) written by him in a copy. Currently, he has written 32 lacs Ram Naam. His target is to write 84 lacs. Each day he writes approx. 6,000-7,000 Ram Naam and a few times 13,000.

I question him why he is writing.

He said – It is better to remember God by writing instead of playing cards and doing useless talks.

I offer donations. He guided me to donate it to another person. I ask – Who is he?

He said – This person cures people from evil spirits. He lives here only.

A few rupees were donated. Thank you said I.
