That day i.e. Vaishak Sud 14 happened to be the utsav of Narsimha Jayanti. Therefore, Gusaiji offered
Rajbhog Samagri once again along with Shayan Bhog. From that day onwards it has become a ritual in
Shri Nathdwara that every year during Narsimh Jayanti, a second Rajbhog Samagri is offered along the Shayan Bhog.

virah bhaav became very strong) that he went on repeating "Govardhan vaasi Saanvare Laal, Tum Bin Rahyo Na Jaay". His distress or his Virah taap was so
potent(strong) that Shriji had to come back to Girirajji.

"Sheetal Pana and Leela Meva" is offered to thwart(lessen) the parishram of of Shriji.

Shri Giridharji to take him back to jatipura (Shri Girirajji) and make him preside
in his temple at Girirajji. Shriji's ordered was followed and Shriji was presided in the temple
on this day in the afternoon and then Rajbhog was offered. During this time Shri Gusaiji
came to the temple. It was almost time of Sandhya Aarti, Gusaiji was surprised as to why
Rajbhog was offered at this time (in the evening) ?
