Artist: His Holiness Indradyumna Swami
Where: Dwadasha Divya Tila, Vrindavan, 2006
Pastimes: “Actually that night in the evening after Krsna chastised Kaliya serpant, He also swallowed the forest fire, it is called Davanala kund, not quite far from here. Thing to note is that after the pastime of Krsna chastising Kaliya serpant, all the Vrajabasis are completely exhausted. After the whole lila took place, they were all tired because of intense Spiritual emotions, so they wanted to come to Davanala Kund to take rest and relax at the Kund…Krsna drank the forest fire to save the Vrajabasis.”
“This was one of the favourite places of Sanatana Goswami. In fact this is the first place where he stayed when he came to Vrindavan. Here is his main bhajan kutir. One time Sanatana Goswami was doing madhukari in Mathura….he came back with his Diety (Madan Mohan) and put him on the tree, on a swing and did bhajan here…”
“One time boat got stuck at Kaliya ghatt…the sailor approached Sanatana Goswami and prayed to Madan Mohan.., the ship started moving..Sailor came back and offered to build Radha Madan Mohan Temple. This is history of Radha Madan Mohan temple”.
“Krsna dug a well with his flute so Sanatana Goswami can have drinking water. They cover up the well now but pump the water up”.
