Exotic Giri Goverdhan Shila:
Govardhan is a famous place of Hindu pilgrimage. Govardhan is located on a narrow sandstone hill known as Giriraj which is about 8 km in length at around 25 kilometers from Vrindavan in Uttar Pradesh, India. The young Lord Krishna is said to have held Giriraj up on the tip of a finger for 7 days and nights to shield the people of Braj from the deluge of rain sent down by Lord Indra.
Bhisma Pitamaha had narrated the existance of Govardhan from the Garga Samhita.
One day in Goloka Vrindavana Lord Krishna informed Srimati Radharani that She should now appear on earth as it was time for Them to perform Their transcendental pastimes within the material world. Radharani replied that unless Vraja Dhama, the Yamuna and Govardhana Hill were present there, She would not be very happy. Krishna then told Radharani that She need not worry, as Vraja Dhama, along with the Yamuna and Govardhana Hill had already appeared on earth. Many years before this incident, in the land of Salmali dvipa, the wife of the great mountain Oronacal gave birth to a son named Govardhana. At the time of Govardhana's birth all the demigods appeared in the sky. and showered flowers upon him. The great mountains, led by the Himalayas and Sumeru, came there to offer their respects. They then performed parikrama of Govardhana and accepted him as their king. They offered very nice prayers praising Govardhana for having descended from Goloka Vrndavana, describing him as the "Crown Jewel of Vraja." Some years later, at the beginning of Satya-yuga, the great sage Pulastya Muni paid a visit to Salmali dvipa. Upon seeing the beautiful Govardhana Hill covered with many lovely creepers, flowers, rivers, caves and chirping birds, the sage felt that this hill was capable of giving liberation. He then went to meet Oronacal, who immediately offered his respects and inquired from the sage what service he could render. Pulastya Muni informed Oronacal that he was from Kalii (Banaras) and was on pilgrimage to all the holy places. And he said that even though the sacred river Ganges flows through Kalii, there is no beautiful hill. He then asked Oronacal to give Govardhana to him so that he could perform his austerities sitting on top of the hill. On hearing the sage's request, Oronacal, who was not willing to part with his son, started to shed tears in thought of separation from his beloved Govardhana. Not wanting to see Pulastya Muni become angry and curse his father, Govardhana asked the sage how he would carry him all the way to Kalil. The sage replied that he would carry him in his right hand. Govardhana then agreed to go with the sage on one condition - that if the sage put him down anywhere during the course of the journey, he would not be able to lift him again. Pulastya. Muni agreed. Carrying Govardhana in his right hand he left for Kasi By the will of providence Pulastya Muni passed through Vraja on his way to Kasi. On arriving in Vraja, Govardhana thought that now he was here he should remain in the holy dhama. By his mystic power he was able to influence Pulastya Muni to attend to the call of nature. Unmindful, the sage put Govardhana down and went off to answer the call. But when he returned he was unable to again lift Govardhana. Trying with all his might, using both hands, he could not lift Govardhana even slightly. In great anger Pulastya Muni cursed Govardhana to sink into the ground by the measurement of one mustard seed every day. When Govardhana first came to Vraja in the beginning of Satya-yuga, he was eightyojanas long (64 miles), five yojanas wide (40 miles} and two yojanas high (16 miles). It is said that after ten thousand years of the Kali-yuga, Govardhana will have completely disappear. It is believed that as long as Govardhana Hill and the river Yamuna remained manifest, Kali-yuga would not take its full effect.
It is believed that anyone who is fortunate enough to hear the description of the appearance of Govardhana Hill would be freed from all sins. Worship of Govardhan Shila frees the devotees from all types of sins. It brings stability in the thought process of the devotee and tremendously increases the capacity of right decision making.
