Creating Vrndavana

    Posted on November 19, 2015

We must be inquisitive. We must be very eager. That eagerness should be aroused: "Where krsna-katha is being taught, let me go there, let me hear." In this Vrndavana you will find, there are many places they are hearing about Krsna.

So either Vrndavana or anywhere else, wherever Krsna is heard, that is Vrndavana. Not that Vrndavana is limited with a certain space. Vrndavana is transcendental. Tatra tisthami narada yatra gayanti mad-bhaktah. Krsna says, "I stay there where My pure devotees chant about Me." Yatra gayanti mad-bhaktah. So if you become pure devotee and if you chant this Hare Krsna mantra, you can create Vrndavana anywhere, any part of the world. Not that you have got to come here.

You come here. That's all right because it is established, Vrndavana. When Krsna comes here, whenever He comes on this planet, He comes here. There are so many devotees. Certainly there is meaning, there is importance of this dhama. But still, if it is not possible to come here, you can create Vrndavana anywhere, provided you are a pure devotee and you are chanting Hare Krsna mantra without any offense.

(From Srila Prabhupada's talk on Srimad-Bhagavatam 1.2.8 -- October 19, 1972, Vrndavana)
