Vrindavan (forest of Vrinda) has an ancient past, associated with Hindu history, and is an important Hindu pilgrimage site. One of its oldest surviving temples is the Govinda Deva temple, built in 1590. The essence of Vrindavan was lost over time until the 16th century, when it was rediscovered by Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. In the year 1515, Chaitanya Mahaprabhu visited Vrindavana, with the purpose of locating the lost holy places associated with Lord Sri Krishna’s transcendent pastimes.
This is an interesting article. It was written in the year 1937 by his Holiness Sri Kanu Priya Goswami, a very prominent Gaudiya Vaishnava at that time.
(Please note: Sri Kanu Priya Goswami is not completely accepted in the Gaudiya Math lines of thoughts, as far as philosophical conclusions are concerns. After reserving this article from other Vaishnavas, I did a deep research about Sri Kanu Priya Goswami and found out, that he was oppose to significant conclusions of the Vaishnava Siddhānta. So take it with caution!)
Extracts from the book “Jiver Swarupa & Swadharma” by Sri Kanu Priya Goswami.
The holy advent of Sri Gouranga Sundar stands out as the least of good events in the history of the modern age. In the near future over the ashes of materialism and consumerism a great religion of the soul will emerge the inconceivable influence that will wipe out all sorrows, distress, dejection’s, malice and all sorts of blemishes of the human heart, and thereafter, keeping the whole world together in one unbreakable bond of pure, clear and wholehearted love of God. The name of that religion is “Prema Dharma” or religion of love propounded by Sri Gouranga.
In a very subtle way, the inevitable influence of Sri Gaura lila of this Kalpa will be revealing gradually, and after Kali’s untimely exist, in this Kaliyuga only the Prema Dharma (religion of love) will prevail throughout the rest of the period of Kali as the best Atma dharma (religion of self), and gradually people will realize the same being hallowed in its own glory.
At the present though Gour lila is withdrawn from here, the Prema seed which has been strewn in the world during that lila due to sure and infallible reactions of its influence in the near future from one corner of the earth to the other, the world will be flooded by a great flash of Prema dharma.
In the near future that pride of intellect of millions of intellectuals will be blown to pieces and they would roll on the feet of Bhakti Devi. Millions of untouchables and non Hindus will assemble and unite in the great arena of Nama yuga.
