Transcendental Vrindavan,Radha Kund and Govardhan hill photo albums – old pictures
Govardhan hill –
When the Lord saw Govardhana Hill, He immediately offered obeisances, falling down on the ground like a rod. He embraced one piece of rock from Govardhana Hill and became mad.[CC Madhya 18.16 (1975)]Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu said, ” ‘May the left arm of Śrī Kṛṣṇa, whose eyes are like the petals of a lotus flower, always protect you. With His left arm He raised Govardhana Hill as if it were a toy.’ “Link to this page: https://prabhupadabooks.com/cc/madhya/18/38
“As already described, there are twelve different kinds of rasas, or ecstatic relationships which are shared with Kṛṣṇa. Five of these rasas are direct, and they are listed as neutrality, servitude, fraternal love, parental love, and conjugal love. Seven of the rasas are indirect, and they are listed as humor, astonishment, chivalry, compassion, anger, dread and ghastliness. The five direct rasas are eternally manifested in the Vaikuṇṭha world, the spiritual kingdom, whereas the seven indirect rasas are eternally manifesting and unmanifesting in Gokula Vṛndāvana, where Kṛṣṇa displays His transcendental pastimes in the material world.”[Nectar of Devotion, Chapter 49,1970 Edition]
“Of all the gopīs, Rādhārāṇī is the dearmost. Similarly, the lake known as Rādhā-kuṇḍa is very dear to the Lord because it is very dear to Śrīmatī Rādhārāṇī. [CC Madhya 18.7 (1975)]
yathā rādhā priyā viṣṇostasyāḥ kuṇḍaṁ priyaṁ tathāsarva-gopīṣu saivaikāviṣṇor atyanta-vallabhā
“Just as Śrīmatī Rādhārāṇī is most dear to Śrī Kṛṣṇa, Her bathing place [Rādhā–kuṇḍa] is also dear to Him. Among all the gopīs, Śrīmatī Rādhārāṇī is supermost and very dear to Lord Kṛṣṇa.”
PURPORTThis verse is from the Padma Purāṇa.
