Five hundred years ago, that same supreme cause, Lord Sri Krishna, appeared as Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu and declared that the chanting of His holy names Hare Krishna, Hare Rama would spread beyond the shores of India to every town and village in the world. Hundreds of years passed, and Lord Caitanyas faithful followers were left wondering just how and when His bold prediction would come true, Photograph taken from ISKCON Temple Vrindavan.

Krishna Balaram Temple in the holy city Vrindavan.

It is one of the main ISKCON temples in India and internationally

Balarama, the elder brother of Srikrishna was one of the ten incarnations of Vishnu as stated by Bhagabat and other Puranas. His father was Vasudeva of Yadu clan but he had two mothers Devaki and Rohini. Maharaja Kamsa, the king of Mathura killed all the six issues of his sister Devaki as one of her sons was to kill him according to some forecast. So Goddess Yogamaya had made some miracle for her seventh issue, while Devaki was pregnant. Yogamaya extracted the foetus from the uterus of Devaki while she was eight months pregnant and placed it inside the uterus of Rohini. Rohini at that time hide herself in Nanda’s house at Gopa for the fear of demon Kamsa.

Vrindavan, the place where Lord Krishna indulged in his pastimes and where you will find a temple for Krishna in every nook and corner of this town, has over 5000 temples (I am told). In this labyrinth of temples the Iskcon temple stands out due to its sheer sense of “Bhakthi” or devotional service to Krishna. The beautiful temple made of exquisite marble sculpture and the most beautiful deities of Krishna, Radha and Gaura Nitai I have seen till date, reverberate with devotion. Incessant kirtan and bhajan, the flow of devotees (many of the from abroad and many of the ladies look like Gopis in Indian attire), the easily available Prasad and the fabulous Darshan (sight) of the Lord without any long queues make the ISKCON Krishna Balram temple the best in Vrindavan.
