Radha Kund, 2018.03.06 (VT): The Mahant of Radha Kund is one of those inspirational figures who gives us faith in the power of devotion. Despite being 97 years old, Anant Das Baba does daily parikrama of Radha Kund, supported by his disciples.
As the Mahant of Radha Kund, Anant Das Baba ji holds the position that was once held by Ragunath Das Goswami who was declared the Mahant of Radha Kund after he oversaw the reconstruction of the Kund in the early 16th Century.
As well as doing daily parikrama at such an advanced age, Anant Das Babaji is also renowned for his translations of 60 important scriptures into 4 languages.
Every evening, before sunset, Ananta Das Baba sets out to do Radha Kund parikrama. After living in Braj for 70 years, Babaji seems completely in tune with the divine spiritual energy of Radha Kund and his determination to be close to this nectarian kund has not wavered despite the difficulties of old age.
As can be expected, at 97 years of age it is not easy for Babaji to move around, but he is not about to let such difficulties stop him from being close to Shri Radha Kund.
Jai Shri Radhe!
