Cultivate knowledge of Vrndavana

Русский перевод

In the Brahma-samhita the transcendental land of Vrndavana is described as being always spiritual. That spiritual land is populated by goddesses of fortune, who are known as gopis. These are all beloved of Krsna, and Krsna is the only lover of all those gopis. The trees of that land are all desire trees: you can have anything you want from any tree. The land is made of touchstone and the water is nectar. In that land all speech is song, all walking is dancing, and the constant companion is the flute. Everything is self-illuminated, just like the sun and moon in this material world. The human form of life is meant for understanding this transcendental land of Vrndavana, and one who is fortunate should cultivate knowledge of Vrndavana and its residents. In that supreme abode of Krsna are surabhi cows who overflood the land with milk. Since not even a moment there is misused, there is no past, present or future. An expansion of that Vrndavana is present on this earth, and superior devotees worship the earthly Vrndavana as nondifferent from the supreme abode. No one can appreciate Vrndavana without being highly elevated in spiritual knowledge, Krsna consciousness. According to ordinary experience, Vrndavana appears to be just like an ordinary tract of land, but in the eyes of a highly elevated devotee, it is as good as the original Vrndavana. A great saintly acarya has sung: "When will my mind be cleared of all dirty things so I will be able to see Vrndavana as it is? And when will I be able to understand the literature left by the Six Gosvamis so that I will be able to understand the transcendental pastimes of Radha and Krsna?"
