View of Raghunath Temple from Toad Rock, Mount Abu, Rajasthan

Shri Raghunathji temple is dedicated to Lord Vishnu and is located nearby Nakki Lake. During visit to the temple-area I had talks with Kavi ji to know the history of the temple. He guided us to meet one of the most learned person Shri Avdhesh Das ji Ramayani during aarti at 7:30pm. As it was afternoon hours we requested for a meet. Permission was granted. We had meeting. Knowledge was enhanced.

1468 the year when Swami Ramanand ji – Guru of Kabir Das ji installed the 5th century Lord Vishnu idol nearby Hanuman temple.

About idol there is different different legends. Some say it was discovered from Nakki lake, some say it was found with Bheel but nothing is with proof so we should leave that discussion. But yes, idol was discovered this is truth.

Later the idol was installed nearby Champa gufa (cave). 68 years back Shri Raghunath ji temple was constructed and idol was placed inside the temple.

Shri Avdhesh Das ji Ramayani also enhanced our knowledge about four types of pursharthas – Dharma, Artha, Kama, Mokshya, eight types of prakriti,√ā¬†Shankaracharya saying – Brahma Satya, Jagat Mithya.

Thank you – said I.

Prayers.
