His loved ones were very upset with this decision and decided to organize a Raslila for him. Hariram ji Vyas was sent to fetch Sri Vitthal VIpul Dev ji. They reached the venue of Raslila. When the Raslila was at its peak, the person playing the part of Sri Priya ji, came towards him and asked him to open his eyes. Holding his hand Priya ji made him get up and asked him to see the Raslila. Sri Vithul Vipul Dev ji prayed to Priyaji not to leave his hand and to always keep him with her always. The covering on his eyes opened, there was a divine light all around, he transformed in his sakhi swaroop and he disappeared.

His samadhi is in Nidhivan.

Aavat Ladili Lal phoole,
Kunj keli nav rang Bihari surati hindore jhule.
Nishi jaage alsaat ragmage pat palte gati bhule,
Sri Vitthal Vipul pulki Lalitadik din dekhat drum bhule.

Dol jhule Shyama Shyam saheli,
Nav nikunj nav rang piya sang vihirat garv gaheli.
Kabhuk pritam ramki jhulavat kabhu priya naveli,
Sri Vitthal Vipul pulki Lalitadik dekhat anand keli.

श्री स्वामी बीठलविपुल देव जू श्री स्वामी हरिदास जी के प्रथम शिष्य थे, और इन्होंने ही प्रथम बार श्री बांकेबिहारी जी के दर्शन निधिवन में किये थे ।

एक बार जब स्वामी हरिदास जी निधिवन मे थें तब श्री बीठलविपुल देव जी ने स्वामी जी से कुञ्ज रस को प्रगट करने के लिए पार्थना की , तब स्वामी जी ने उन्हें आज्ञा दी के वो सामने सघन लताओं में प्रवेश करे, बीठलविपुल देव जी ने वैसा ही किया , जब वे लताओं में गए तब उन्हें वह एक गुफा दिखी , गुफा में प्रवेश करते ही उन्हें श्री कुंजबिहारी जी , कुँजबिहारिणी जी के नित्य केलि के दर्शन हुए , और स्वामी जी का सखी स्वरुप में सेवा करते हुए दर्शन हुए , यह देख वो मंत्र मुग्ध हो गए , कुछ देर बाद जब वे पुनःसिथति में आये तब वे वापस बाहर स्वामी हरिदास जी के पास आये , स्वामी जी उन्हें वापस अंदर जाने को कहा और ये भी कहा आपको जो भी अंदर मिलिए उन्हे बाहर ले आयं| इस बार जब बीठलविपुल देव जी अंदर गए तो श्री कुंजबिहारी जी , कुँजबिहारिणी जी और सेवित स्वामी जी एक ही रूप में मिल गए और पत्थर की मूर्ति में परिवर्तित हो गए , ये ही श्री बांकेबिहारी जी के विग्रह थे , बीठलविपुल देव जी श्री बांकेबिहारी जी के विग्रह को बहार ले आये।
