(Kesi-ghata with Madan Mohan temple in background, Vrindavan, India)
"Cultivating Krishna consciousness in Vrindavana is the best means of being liberated from material bondage, for in Vrindavana one can automatically meditate upon Krishna. Vrindavana has many temples, and in one or more of these temples one may see the form of the Supreme Lord as Radha-Krishna or Krishna-Balarama and meditate upon this form. As expressed here by the words brahmany adhyaya, one should concentrate one's mind upon the Supreme Lord, Parabrahman. This Parabrahman is Krishna, as confirmed by Arjuna in Bhagavad-gita (param brahma param dhama pavitram paramam bhavan [Bg. 10.12]). Krishna and His abode, Vrindavana, are not different. Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu said, aradhyo bhagavan vrajesa-tanayas tad-dhama vrindavanam. Vrindavana is as good as Krishna. Therefore, if one somehow or other gets the opportunity to live in Vrindavana, and if one is not a pretender but simply lives in Vrindavana and concentrates his mind upon Krishna, one is liberated from material bondage."
