“The effulgent land of Vrindavan is made of the nectarean ocean of love of God. This incomparable ocean of transcendental mellows has appeared within this world out of her own glories. O friends, please worship Sri Krishna, the matchless flatterer of Sri Radhika, the daughter of King Vrsabhanu, for He is expert in all arts of love and most dear to the cowherd girls of Vraja.”
(Text 61 Sri Vrndavana Mahimamrta by Srila Prabhodhananda Saraswati)

“Vrindavan is full of so much joy. It starts with the birds chirping to awake you in the morning. The monkeys come jumping around in the trees near to your window. Immediately you go outside to meet people around.

Everyone says, "Radhe Radhe" to greet you with nice smiles and sweet eyes. You feel loved and you love the people, everyone around, the animals too.

Everything is vibrating with Krishna's energy. Everyone is chanting the names of God. So much bliss is there. The sweetness of Krishna is personified in Vrindavan. With that mood joy is guaranteed.

So, being in Vrindavan brought me to understand and get deeper into the meaning of Krishna's pastimes; not only by the books but by personal realization.

When you come to swim in the nectar of Krishna's pastimes you can carry them all over the world your entire life because they are eternally residing in your heart.” - Atmarama dasa
