Mahuri Vaisya, based on their family lore, tradition, and historical evidences, trace their roots to an ancient and distant past - to the period of the Puranas, as also to the golden era of India, that is, the period of the Mauryas and the Guptas. Our ancient ancestors lived in the forest hamlets around the regions of Mathura, Vrindavan and Gokul. In reverence to our origin in those forest hamlets there, Mahuri Vaisya as a faithful community with deep ethical values and religious outlook continue to revere Mother Goddess Mathurasini Devi (an aspect of the Goddess Shakti) as their supreme family deity.
In the near term, our ancestry is traceable to at least 500 years from the time of the consolidation of North India under the Mughal rule (16th century) when the caravan routes had become safer and our ancestors commenced coming from Mathura-Vrindavan-Gokul regions to the Suba-e-Bengal, one of the most prosperous provinces of that period. In the early part of the 18th century, when the disintegration of the Mughal Empire set forth and the trade routes became unsafe and targets of the Pindari marauders, a number of our ancestors chose to permanently settle in the regions around Bihar Shariff, a major commercial and political center of that time and presently located in the Indian state of Bihar. Such waves of migration continued for several decades bringing in a large number of families from the regions around Mathura to Bihar Shariff and the adjoining areas.
