“The central jewel in the necklace of Goloka” – Indradyumna Swami Nectar
Before leaving for Australia last Wednesday, His Holiness Indradyumna Swami visited Surya Kund and he reflected on the pastimes that had previously taken place at this special place in a Facebook post.
Indradyumna Swami wrote that Surya Kund where the Sun God performed austerities to see and serve Lord Krsna. His wish was fulfilled when Srimati Radharani asked him to warm the Lord’s transcendental body with his rays after Krsna came out of the water from battling the Kaliya serpent. Srimati Radharani visits Surya-kund every Sunday to worship Surya-deva. It is also a place where Radha and Krsna meet regularly for Their pastimes.
Indradyumna Swami wrote that he said prayers while gazing at the beautiful lake, begging to keep Vrindavan in his heart as he leaves that transcendental abode for the time-being. He quoted this verse, which is actually one that he quotes quite often:
sri rasa rangasya vikasa candrika
dipavalir ya vrsabhanu mandire
goloka cuda mani kantha bhusanam
dhyatva param tam bhuvi paryatamy aham
“I wander over this earth meditating on Her, who is a moon shining in the rasa-dance arena, who is a host of bright lamps in Vrsabhanu’s palace, and who is the central jewel in the necklace of Goloka.”
[ Narada Muni, Garga Samhita 1.8.12 ]
