Mahanidhi Madan Gopal Das Maharaj: Although it is a popular notion that one will suffer 1000 X reactions for any offenses committed in Vrindavana (aparadhas to Thakuraji, Guru, Vaisnavas, Nama, Vrajavasis, Yatris, and the Dhama itself, this fact is not stated anywhere in the Srimad Bhagavatam, or any of the Gaudiya Vaisnava Goswami granthas.
Srimad Bhagavatam, the shastric proof upon which Gaudiya Vaisnava sampradayas are based, says: “The extremely, sacred transcendental pilgrimage sites (tirthas, dhamas) of MATHURA/VRINDAVAN, Pushkara, Kurukshetra, Gaya, Prayaga, Dvaraka, Varanasi, Badarikashrama, Citrakuta…etc., and places where Radha-Krishna murtis are worshiped are the purest places on earth (punya tamah deshah). If one wants to advance in spiritual life, one should visit these transcendental holy places again and again.” (7.14.30-33)
Shreyas kamo hy abhikshnashah,
dharmo hy atrehitah pumsam,
sahasradhi phalodayah sahasra adhi
“All good activities like dana (giving charity), tapa (observing fasts and austerities) puja, punya karmas (good deeds) Thakuraji puja, and Radha-Krishna bhakti-bhajan performed in these sacred place give MORE THAN a thousand times the result of the same activities performed in other places.” (Srimad Bhagavatam 7.14.33)
Vraja vasa, Harinama japa, kirtan and Krishna lila smaran ki jai!
