Maan Sarovar Darshan
When Lord Krishna did Maha Raas Lord Shiva in the form of gopi tried to enter Maha Raas. Lord Krishna smiled by saying: come gopishewari. This was not liked by Radha. She left Krishna and reached Mansarovar. This location is also named as Radhi-Rani Mansarovar. Each Purnima ( full moon ) devotees visit the temple.
जब श्री राधा रानी जी श्री कृष्णा से महा रास करती हुयी रूठ गयी थी तो वह इस स्थान पर आ गयी !! तब श्री कृष्ण उन्हें यहां मनाने आये थे इसलिए इसे मान सरोवर कहते !!
Once Radharani was into a sulky mood (maan) during Raas Leela that was very difficult to subdue that She left the place of raas on Her own, crossed the Yamuna, and came to this solitary forest. Distressed in separation from Krishna, She began to cry, and the stream of tears that flowed from Her eyes created this lake, or sarovara. Shri Krishna, the topmost relisher of transcendental mellows, searched for Shriji and found Her here. Placing His flute and His head at Her lotus feet, Shri Krishna admitted His fault and assured Her that He would never act like that again.
This charming place in Braj is embellished by the dense shade of the Pilu, kadamba and tamaala trees and by the peacocks, cuckoos, swans, deer and other birds and animals. It remains visible to our eyes to this present day so as to remind us of the pastimes of the Divine Couple, Shri Radha-Krishna.
In the old temple on the bank of Maana-sarovara, a painting is worshipped of Shri Krishna offering His flute and His head at the lotus feet of Shri Radhika in an effort to break Her maana. The same painting can be seen in the image as well.
Shri Krishna is looking at Her as if to say, “Smara-Garala-Khandanam Mama Shirasi Mandanam Dehi Pada-Pallavam Udaram" – the beautiful flower blossoms of Your feet counteract the deadly poison of amorous love, and they extinguish the fearsome fire of the pain of that love, which rages within My heart. Therefore, please be kind and decorate My head with Your flower-like feet.
