Jai Jai ShriGokulesh Why should one take Brahma-sambandha and (b) when, (c) where. Please give me brief.

------Bhagavan has created this universe for Lila (divine play). As numerous players are necessary in the play, Bhagavan created beings of different types from Himself. Scripture, therefore, says all beings in the world are the Amsha, Divine-particles, of the Supreme Being Shri Krishna. Therefore,relationship between Bhagavan and Jiva is of Amsha and Amshi. Every relationship demands some kind of faith, affection, duty and sacrifice. By virtue of this relationship all beings are, by nature, humble attendants and servants of Bhagavan, says Shri Vallabhacharya. However, Bhagavan has not gifted all beings such awareness or such devotional sentiment and qualification that they can perform service of Shri Krishna. Mainly there are three kinds of beings: 1. Pravahi Beings 2. Maryada Beings and 3. Pusti Beings. Beings develop interest in that course of life, which is most suitable to their nature. Therefore, Pravahi Beings, bounded by their nature, follow the Pravahi path. Maryada beings have liking in the Maryada Marga and so they follow that Marga. Pusti Beings follow Pusti Marga as they develop interest in the path of Pushti-Bhakti-Sampradaya. Showing the god-given purpose of the creation of Pushti-beings in his treatise Pusti-pravaha-maryada-bheda Shri Vallabhacharya says: Bhagavad-rupa-sevartham tat shrshtih Meaning: - The world of Pushti-beings has been created for performing the worship of Bhagavans Svarupa. There lies such an excellent purpose behind the creation of Pushti beings. But this purpose was become valueless (meaningless) as those beings were flung for far away from Bhagavan. They have been contaminated with Bhagavaní s power of nescience, Vyamohika Mayika and hence they were lying in rottenness in the pit of ignorance. They had become oblivious of their own Svarupa; the Svarupa of Bhagavan, their relation with Bhagavan and their duties towards Bhagavan. As a result of this, they were caught in worldly snares and entrapped in quagmire. Bhagavan was deeply touched to see such pitiable state of his extremely favorite Pushti-beings the purpose of whose creation was to perform his worship. In order to turn Pushti-beings to their original duty of doing Bhagavanís worship, Bhagavan ordained Sri Vallabhacarya Mahaprabhiji to manifest the devotional path of Pushti and granted initiation Mantra of Brhma-sambandha. Initiation of Brahma-Sambandha, therefore, helps beings in recalling forgotten relationship with his Amshi Bhagavan. If any being shares this sentiment and wants to follow Pushti-Bhakti-Sampradaya, he should take Brahma-sambandha initiation.

Jai Shri Krishna, The answer according to me is simple Re Brahma Sambandha Why because you will be properly introduced to God thru our Guru and your 5 types of Dosh will be not be looked at. When you are ready to do sewa or help your family members in doing same otherwise no use. Where Vraj should be considered number one place as this is the place where God did most of His Lilas.
