    :hello: Custodian OF Footwear of Devotees Makes It Big :hello:

    Incredible that a lady on yellow sari, she became a widow at the age of 20, but she is a big lover of
    LORD Shri Krishna, so she chose to dedicate her life as a FOOTWEAR keeper of the visiting devotees outside Banke Bihari temple Vrindāvan.

    SInce last 40 years she accumulated Rs. 51,02,050/- which averages around Rs.300 per day.

    Amazingly she didn't use it for herself.

    Rather Rs. 40 lac she
    had spent to build a Goshala (cow-shed) for stray cows and a dharmashala ( guest house) for the visitors.

    She did it of course without any publicity. Everything silently...Hats off to her dedication and unalloyed devotion towards Lord Krishna.

    Wbat a selfless epitome of love for The Lord Krishna.

    And in that she leaves a message for those who view money-making is only the ultimate objective or purpose of life.

    Krishna in bhagavatam proclaims "aham bhakta paradhinah" -

    I am under my devotees.

    Now Krishna is compelled to love her the way she loved him, a big example for the devotees.

    Her name is Yashoda and it's perfectly befitting her, her love is as pure and blind as mother Yashoda to Krishna.
    She is an epitome of detachment.

    Facts not checked please.
