Introduction to Shrungar of Shree Krishna in Pushtimarg.
Shrungars (Decorating Shree Prabhu) are the Uddipan Vibhavs (Determinant Excitent). Whereas Shree Prabhu
is himself Alambana Vibhav. In this article, the aim is to discuss the origin of the Shrungars offered to Shree Prabhu
in Pushtimarg. According to the Bhav Bhavna by Shree Dwarkeshji Maharaj (Pancham Gruh), various shrungars have different bhav bhavnas. The entire Seva routine defined by Shree Vallabhacharyaji and Shree Gusaiji is based on Shreemad Bhagwat Mahapuran.
Thus shrungars are also based on different leelas done by Shree Krishna in Saraswat Kalp which is narrated in the Vangmay
Swaroop of Shreenathji i.e. Shree Bhagwat Mahapuran.
Shree Mahaprabhuji SHree Vallabhacharyaji established pushtimarg in this bhutal and Shree Gusaiji expanded it. Shree
Mahaprabhuji offered only 2 types of Shrungars to Shree Prabhu
1. Mukut and
Shree Gusaiji expanded the shrungars to many i.e. Kulhe, Goti Kulhe, Paga, Tipara, Turra, Fenta, Dumala etc.
Shree Gusaiji created different shrungars from only two shrungars offered by Shree Vallabhacharyaji i.e. Mukut and Paagh.
How different shrungars got originated?
Mukut: If a Kulhe is tied up with three/Five Chandrikas (Barhi) it becomes Mukut. Mukut and Kulhe are like "Barhi Nrutyanukaran".
Kulhe: Shree Prabhu's kesh (hair) are very long and due to that Shree Yadodaji ties up the hair in the middle to form Sikha (Choti) and the hair besides that are tied up with that middle hair bowl forms Kulhe wherein the middle Goti is the Kesh Shikha and back two Chods are flowers and other hair.
Tipara: IF the middle Goti of kulhe is streched longer, it forms the Tipara where the middle goti is streched and back chods are also streched to form two katara and middle Goti becomes Chandrika to form Tipara.
Dumala: If the Goti is removed from the above ,it becomes Dumala
Fenta: If only one chod is kept in above, it becomes Fenta.
Paga: If goti is removed and the Turra is kept in middle becomes Paga.
Just like Shree Gusaiji expanded pushtimarg, same way also expanded the Shrungars also formed by Shree Mahaprabhuji all based on Shreemad Bhagwat Mahapuran.
