Once while Shri Mahaprabhuji was resting by the banks of the Yamuna river at Gokul on the Takourani Ghat under a Chhokar Tree, He become concerned as to how He would be able to fullfill the Lord's order to re-establish the relation of pepole of this impure KaliAge with the divine-pure God, While engaged in such deep thoughts ....

suddenly Lord Krishna appeared in front of Him and said, "Why do you worry so ?" Shri Mahaprabhuji then replied " The nature of these souls is so sinful that I am concenred as to how thier reunion with you can ever take place" Shri Krishna then consoled Shri Mahaprabhuji saying, " Those who take intiation from You will be relieved of all sins and I will personally accept them. Go out and take divine souls under your shelter." The reason why Shri Mahaprabhuji was worried about how the souls sinful by nature would be able to be reunited with thier Lord, was that. He was mainly concerned because Lord only enjoys and accepts things of the highest quality.   the Lord Himself had given Shri Mahaprabhuji the order to uplift people through the  Bramha Sambandha people   have firm faith in it for the Lord himself had given Shri Mahaprabhuji the command and promised that He would look after their liberations . A rough English translations of the Bramha Sambandha mantra goes as following.

  " Thousands of years have elapsed since my soul's separation From the god. I am suffering intense pain and anguish in hopes of meeting God. In this condition of separation i am joyless, therefore I Take a vow of consecration and dedicate my body, organs, vital breath, mind, and thier funcions, also my wife, children, house, relatives, wealth and the merits of this world and the next, along with my soul to lord Krishna.

                              "I am Your Servant, Oh Krishna I am Yours !"

On the following morning (~ivN s&d 12 ),(pavitra 12)  Shri Mahaprabhuji composed a small doctrine for His Disciples called siddhantrahasya, which explains the order, Lord Krishna has Given to Him on the previous night. Its translation  is given below.

"At midnight, during the month of Saravan (Roughly corresponding to the end of the July and the first half of August.) on the eleventh day of the bright half, the Supreme Lord Shri Krishna appeared    before Me. What special orders He bestowed on Me I will now reproduce. All those who take Brahma Sambandha will have all impurities removed from their soul and body.  The   impurities mentioned in the scriptures are those relating to social and religious affairs, namely those of natural occurence, place, time, union, and touch. After one takes Brahma Sambhandha all of one's sins cannot be absolved, therefore it is one's duy to offer everything including one's soul to Lord Krishna and to avoid accepting anything which has
not been offered.Therefore, after taking Bramha Sambhandha all should observe the regulations of first offering everything they themselves intend to use Things half or partially used should never be offered to the god of gods, Shri Krishna. In every affair all things should first be offered. Therefore, after taking Bramha Sambandha all should observe the regulations of first offering everything they them selves intend to use.
Things half or partially used should never be offered to lord Krishna According to daktaprahara ( the act of gifting) those things once offered to the Lord become his and consequently unauthorised for our personal use. This statement is concerned with the path
of puja and not with the Path of Grace. As people in the world successfully carry out thier work, similarly by offering every undertaking to the lord, everything acquries His divine likeness. As all types of impure water upon entering the sacred Ganga river become
a part of her holy flow, similarly those who offer everything to Shri Krishna have all thier impurities absolved and acquire he lord's Own transcendental qualitites."
Later, Shri Mahaprabhuji asked Damala. " Did you hear any thing last night ?"
Damala replied, " I heard the lord's voice , but I was not able to understand what He said "

Shri Mahaprabhuji then enlightened him;" Last night the lord ordered Me to
give people the divine mantra of bramaha Sambhandha, for through it the lord will accept
them, thus absolveing all of their sins. Therefore it is neccessary to take the bramaha Sambhandha,

the Reasons why Damla said he did not understand what the lord said The Lord said was that if he had understood,
damla wanted to hear, the explaintion from the mahaprabhuji ,for true knowledge can only be gained through the guru's grace. For these reason damla had on real interest in hearing the lord, for he was only concern with becoming the devotee dispicle of Shri Mahaprabhuji,   after giving bramaha Sambhandha, to Damla

Shri Mahaprabhuji told him "damla the path has been established for you"(vaishnavs), that is, devotee's having qualities similar to him.

Just as Shri Mahaprabhuji descendants have appered in order to give bramaha Sambhandha, to vaishnavs and to carry out the teachings of Shri Mahaprabhuji.

In sampradaya, there are two rites generally performed viz and . The first gives recognition as a vaishnava and the second makes one Adhikari in the Seva marga. The first initiation is given by a decendent of Vallabhacharya by repeatation of theSHRI KRISHNA SHARANAM MAMA in the ears of the child (after 41 day's  of birth)and then putting the Tulsi Kanthi on his neck. The performance of the second initiation is also performed through a decendent of Vallabhacharya. In both the initiations, age is not to be considered. The second rite is Brahmasambandha.

Brahmasambandha means the initiation ceremony of pustimarga. Without this initiation, no one can become the Adhikarin or has right of seva or service of Lord Krishna in Pustimarga. This initiation consists of two parts. One is the formula to be repeated by the initiate before the diety through Acharya. The other part is the effect of the same, on the devotee, by which he becomes the Adhikarin in the sevamarga of Lord Shri Krishna.
In the Brahmasambandha formula the position of Jiva is explained. The initiate after taking the Tulsi leaves in his hands before deity utters the mantra which means -"Oh Lord Shri Krishna, I’m seperated from you thousands of years before and am suffering the pangs of seperation. My pleasure has gone away as I have become seperated from you. Oh Lord Krishna, I hereby offer and dedicate my life along with my conscience and their duties to you. I herewith, O Lord, dedicate my wife\husband, my children, my wealth, my home and everything pertaining to myself to you."It is to be remembered that this dedication is to be made to Lord Krishna and not to any  one else. This is also called Atmanivedana or self surrender. This self surrender is to be remembered always and should be realised every now and then.

The expression Brahmasambandha means relatonship with Brahman. The first step which an initiate is to take is to realize the relation that ever exists between God and man. At the time of this initiation ceremony the initiate is required to utter the formula which means a complete  self dedication to God Lord Shri Krishna.

The Jiva or the living being is Ansha or Parabrahman or God. When he becomes seperate from his Anshin Lord Krishna and comes to the world he forgets his relationship owing to a strong attack of five wordly faults. Shri Vallabhacharya says that a Jiva can only become free and pure when he takes Brahmasambandha.
