Jaya Radha Jaya Krsna Jaya Vrindavana
Hari Katha by Sripad BV Vana Maharaja
Vrindavan is the most important place of pilgrimage on earth. It is located ninety miles southeast of Delhi, India. It was in Vrindavan that 5,000 years ago Lord Sri Krishna displayed the transcendental pastimes He eternally manifests in the spiritual sky. His magnificent activities with His cowherd boyfriends, damsel friends, the cows, and others are all full of the most sublime happiness. Anyone can visit the sites of His pastimes and enjoy great transcendental bliss.
This song describes the locations and persons involved with those pastimes.
