Sri Sri Radha Vrindavana Chandra
New Vrindaban Dhama, West Virginia
"In Brahma-samhita the transcendental land of Vrindavana 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 kalpa-vrksa, wish fulfilling trees, and one can have anything he wants from them. The land is made of touchstone and the water of nectar. In that land all speech is song, and all walking is dancing, and one's constant companion is the flute. Everything is self-luminous, just like the sun in this material world. The human form of life is meant for understanding this transcendental land of Vrindavana, and one who is fortunate should cultivate knowledge of Vrindavana and its residents. In that supreme abode are surabhi cows that overflood the land with milk. Since not even a moment there is misused, there is no past, present or future. An expansion of this Vrindavana, which is the supreme abode of Krsna, is also present on this earth, and superior devotees worship it as the supreme abode. However, no one can appreciate Vrindavana without being highly elevated in spiritual knowledge, Krsna consciousness. According to ordinary experience, Vrindavana appears to be just like an ordinary village, but in the eyes of a highly elevated devotee, it is as good as the original Vrindavana. A great saintly acarya has sung: 'When will my mind be cleared of all contamination so I will be able to see Vrindavana as it is? And when will I be able to understand the literatures left by the Gosvamis so that I will be able to know of the transcendental pastimes of Radha and Krsna?'"

(Teachings of Lord Caitanya, Chapter 31)
