Description of Vrndavana

    Posted on October 30, 2015

Description of Vrndavana, Vrndavana, and Radha and Krsna situated there. The Vrndavana... Vana means forest, and vrnda means tulasi. Mostly there are tulasi plants and other trees also, but all the trees are living desire trees, spiritual. They can serve Krsna in any way, desire. They have become trees by their voluntary desire. They're all spiritual beings -- there is no force -- but everyone has got a particular tendency to serve Krsna in a different way. So these trees and plants, they are also living beings. They are not ordinary living beings, but they have decided to serve Krsna by supplying fruits and flowers. They want that service. Everyone has got his particular propensity. So someone is serving as the land there; someone is serving as the throne; someone is serving as the supplying agent of fruits and flowers; someone is engaged in His service as the gopis, confidential servitors. The cows, calves, everything -- they are all different living entities. They are not made of these material things, material body.

(Srila Prabhupada, speaking on Sri Caitanya-caritamrta, Adi-lila 1.16 -- April 9, 1975, Mayapur)
