Govardhana – The Hill that Fulfills all Desires
Govardhana, the Hill that Fulfills all Desires” is a virtual guide of the most holy place of pilgrimage for devotees of Lord Krishna. Lord Krishna appeared on earth more than five thousand years ago and enacted intimate pastimes with His dear-most devotees who were hankering intensely for it. Govardhana Hill provided the most suitable atmosphere by which all the desires of the Lord were
fulfilled in His intimate loving dealings with His devotees. Govardhana provided shelter to the devotees in Vrindavan when they were in distress for having being tormented by the incessant torrents of rains being sent by the king of demigods, Indra. In order to further proclaim the glories of Govardhana Hill, Lord Krishna Himself assumed the form of Govardhana in order to accept the offerings of His devotees in Vrindavan.
Simply put, Govardhana Hill is the shelter prayed for by the devotees to attain loving devotional service to Lord Krishna. A single visit to this king of the mountains assures one of liberation from the material existence, but more so guarantees one entrance into loving relationships with Lord Krishna.
His Holiness Bhakti Caitanya Swami and his crew spent tireless days and nights photographing all the places on and around Govardhana Hill. All the temples, shrines, lakes, Deities and often the most difficult ones were caught on camera and presented in this book that took more than three years in the making. Bhakti Caitanya Maharaja then accompanied each photos with
vivid descriptions of the places and pastimes performed by the Lord with His devotees, thus assuring us of being intimately absorbed as we flip through the pages. There are also large accompaniment of arts that were drawn especially for this book.
