5th Centenary Comemorial of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu’s Visit to Sri Vrindaban Dham

Posted on: November 5, 2015 Posted By: Gaudiya Mission

Background :

Vrindavan, as we all know has an ancient past, associated with Indian history, and is one of the most important Hindu pilgrimage site. Lord Sri Krishna performed His loving pastimes with his most glorious devotees in the forests of Vraja, on the banks of River Yamuna, in the groves and gardens of Vrindavan and in the precincts of Govardhana Hill, revealing His own nature in complete disclosure. During the time of Sri Krishna, the most sacred Vraja Dham consisted of twelve verdant forests with flower laden twining vines and fruit trees of all seasons, bird songs that rent the air with sweet sounds, cool breezes and the Yamuna's waters that enhanced the atmosphere.

The essence of Vrindavan was lost over time until the 16th century, when it was rediscovered by Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. In the year 1515, Mahaprabhu visited Vrindavan, with the purpose of locating the lost holy places associated with Lord Sri Krishna's transcendent pastimes. Mahaprabhu wandered through the different sacred forests of Vrindavan in a spiritual trance of divine love. It was believed that by His divine spiritual power, He was able to locate all the important places of Krishna's pastimes in and around Vrindavan.

Gaudiya Mission, established in 1918, represents the genuine teachings of Sri  Chaitanya  Mahaprabhu and intends to promote the moral & spiritual welfare of all mankind and assist them in the study of the philosophy as propounded by Him. Mission aims to revive the society in the light of universal harmony and brotherhood on a plane of transcendence.
