1st Sep., 2003 TRITIYA SHAAHI SNAAN
Finally, the last and the BEST shaahi snaan was completed on the 1st of September, 2003. The last in the series of the Shaahi Snaans at Nashik the Tritiya Shaahi Snaan proved out to be the best of all.
For the last snaan, Shri Vallabhpith saw the arrival of many Vallabhkul Balaks at Shri Vallabhpith Shri Mahaprabhuji Baithakji, Nashik to join in for the Shaahi Snaan.
The Shobha Yatra started from Shri Vallabhpith Shri Mahaprabhuji Baithakji, with all Vallabhkul Balaks and their Jananas leading the way toward the Snaan Tirthshetra - Ramkund on the Banks of River Godavari. All Vaishnavas followed them in the grand yatra, filling the air with Jainaads, while the Kirtaniyas sung Kirtans while walking down to the Snaan.
Special provision was already made for the snaan of Shri Vallabhpith's Shobha Yatra and without any trouble, all Vallabhkul Balaks and Vaishnavas took the holy dip in the River Godavari.
