“The History of Govindaji.” Listen to the full story of how Govindaji went from Vrindavan to Jaipur several centuries ago. The pastime includes intrique, politics, battles, diplomacy and most important – the loving devotion of His devotees who safeguarded and protected Him all the way”.

“Our parikrama party of 240 devotees is in Jaipur for 3 days taking shelter of the lotus feet of Radha Govinda – the beloved deities of Srila Rupa Goswami. Sri Rupa prays:

“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. “

    Pastimes at Davanala Kund – Vrindavan Parikrama

    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”.
