“In a forest of desire trees known as Vrindavan is a golden mansion and in it’s midst is a jeweled throne at the place called yogapith. Seated thereupon is Sri Vrajendrananda, Sri Govindadeva, a veritable cupid incarnate. He is served there as King, bedecked with divine clothes, ornaments and other paraphernalia served incessantly by thousands of devotees. “
