Krishna Pilgrimages - Virndavan

 

India is a country full of sacred places, centers of pilgrimages with holy rivers, temples and Peeth Sthans. Vrindavan is one such sacred town situated on 
 
the banks of the holy river Yamuna. Vrindavan, around 15 km. from Mathura, is a major place of pilgrimage, attracting about 5 lakh pilgrims every year. It is 
 
noted for its numerous temples- both old and modern. Vrindavan is synonymous with childhood of Shri Krishna.
Vrindavan, a forest full of basil (a sacred plant for Hindus), where Lord Krishna as a child and in adolescence used to play and graze his cows along-with 
 
other shepherd boys and girls. It is here that he performed many of his leelas or games to enlighten the people about his divinity. It is here that great saints 
 
& yogis realized the ultimate, not by going through the rigors of Hatha Yoga but through Bhakti Yoga or complete surrender to the supreme. It was 
 
surrender in love and not submission, that the great saints became one with the supreme in the form of Lord Krishna and his divine consort Radha.
