"Actually, if someone goes to Vrindavana, he will immediately feel separation from Krishna, who performed such nice activities when He was present there."

Today's Smart Quote is from the Nectar of Devotion , Chapter 18, "Attraction for Living in a Place Where Krishna Has His Pastimes":

In the book Padyavali by Rupa Gosvami there is the following statement about Vrindavana: "In this place the son of Maharaja Nanda used to live with His father, who was king of all cowherd men. In this place Lord Krishna broke the cart in which the Sakatasura demon was concealed. At this place Damodara, who can cut the knot of our material existence, was tied up by His mother, Yasoda."

A pure devotee of Lord Krishna resides in the district of Mathura or Vrindavana and visits all the places where Krishna's pastimes were performed. At these sacred places Krishna displayed His childhood activities with the cowherd boys and mother Yasoda. The system of circumambulating all these places is still current among devotees of Lord Krishna, and those coming to Mathura and Vrindavana always feel transcendental pleasure. Actually, if someone goes to Vrindavana, he will immediately feel separation from Krishna, who performed such nice activities when He was present there.
