Welcome to the third day of the Parikrama.

Today we are going to go to probably the most celebrated hill of Govardhana, which Krishna lifted atop his finger for 7 days. Shaped like a peacock, the Govardhana offered Lord Krishna and the cows with contemporary grass and candy water from its streams.

We can even go to Radha Kunda, probably the most sacred lake within the universe, and lots of different holy websites on the periphery of #Govardhana Hill.

Krishna lifted the Govardhana Hill when He was solely seven years outdated and guarded His pure devotees at Vrindavana from the wrath of Indra, who was overflooding the place with rain. He instructed the residents of Vrindavana to carry out Govardhana worship and circumambulation of the hill.

#Govardhana parikrama stretches for 23 Km. The most sacred of pilgrimage locations within the universe are discovered alongside the Govardhana parikrama.

Kunda means a small lake or pond. Radha-Kunda and Shyama-Kunda are sacred ponds close to Govardhana Hill personally created by Radharani and Krishna following the slaying of the bull-demon Aristasura. Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu bathed in these waters. Following His instructions, Srila Rupa Gosvami and Sanatana Gosvami renovated Radha-Kunda.

Radha-Kunda is supreme amongst all of the sacred locations in Vraja and lots of exalted Vaishnavas carried out their bhajan right here. After a lifetime of service, many left their our bodies right here. The Teen Gosvami Samadhi pitha homes the samadhis of Raghunatha Bhatta Goswami, Krishnadasa Kaviraja Goswami, and Raghunatha Dasa Goswami. All three of them entered samadhi on the identical day however in several years.

Srimati Radharani and the gopis picked flowers from Kusuma-Sarovar earlier than going to Radha-kunda to fulfill Krishna. Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu bathed on this lake throughout His Braja Mandal parikrama in 1515. Narada Muni grew to become certified to witness the confidential pastimes of Radha and Krishna by bathing right here.

Krishna killed Vatsasura, a demon who appeared within the type of a calf. He then manifested the Ganga from His thoughts to wash in it. Thus, this lake acquired the title Manasi-Ganga. The magnificent Harideva mandir stands at its shore. Maharaja Vajranabha put in the Deity of Harideva practically 5,000 years in the past. Nearby is the bhajana kutir of Sanatana Gosvami.

Srila Prabhupada explains: Being a cowherd woman, Srimati Radharani usually carries milk in a container and infrequently goes to promote the milk on the opposite facet of the Yamuna. To cross the river, She has to pay the boatman, and the spot the place the boatman collects his fares is named the dana-ghati. Lord Sri Krsna stops Her from going, telling Her, “”First You need to pay the payment; then You can be allowed to go.”” This pastime is named dana-keli-lila. (Cc Madhya 14.173 p)

Govinda-Kunda was shaped when Indra, defeated by Lord Govinda, provided prayers to Him and bathed Him. Maharaja Vajranabha put in the Gopala Deity close by. This Deity was misplaced over time. Later Sri Madhavendra Puri found this Deity and personally carried out the abhiseka with water from Govinda-Kunda.

Uddhava-Kunda is located close to Kusuma-Sarovar. Uddhava, the discovered disciple of Brihaspati and Krishna’s beloved cousin, resides right here within the type of grass. Maharaja Vajranabha established Uddhava-Kunda.
