Govardhan | Road 2 Mathura; R2M

Govardhan | Road 2 Mathura; R2M.

Govardhan is actually a place named for a mountain named Govardhan; which has it’s own importance because once Lord Krishna picked it up in air on his little finger to save all the people of Govardhan from the enourmous raining.

-The Raining Caused due to Giriraj Poojan done by villagers there expecting Rain will fall after Giriraj Poojan suggested by Deity Krishna.

Now it is tradition to “Parikrama” around the Goverdhan Mountain which is in 21 kms of area. This Govardhan Parikrama is use to carry by walking bare foot to 21 kms all around Govardhan mountain.

There are a lot of beautiful temples in way to Govardhan-Parikrama which all have their beauty and sounds very relaxing. 


-An interesting fact about Govardhan Mountain is that it is descending in ground about a few millimeters day by day and supposed to disappear after end of “Kalayuga” (An age of downfall” 4th & last period of world development according to Hindu Scriptures)
(However the downfall in height of Govardhan Mountain have it Mythological existence whereas no actual scientific or archeological fact proves that)

Brushstrokes of a Gadfly

There may be some truth (atheists) do not need to believe in a god to be good, but then if they do not believe in a god, who do they believe gives the Universal Law of following good and shunning evil? Obviously, mankind. But then that is a dangerous thing, for if a man does not believe in a god capable of giving perfect laws, he is in the position of declaring all laws come from man, and as man is imperfect, he can declare that as fallible men make imperfect laws, he can pick and choose what he wishes to follow, that which, in his own mind seems good. He does not believe in divine retribution, therefore he can also declare his own morality contrary to what the divine may decree simply because he believes there is no divine decree. He may follow his every whim and passion, declaring it to be good when it may be very evil, for he like all men is imperfect, so how can he tell what is verily good? The atheist is in danger of mistaking vice for good and consequently follow another slave master and tyrant, his own physical and mental weakness. Evil would be wittingly or unwittingly perpetrated, therefore, to recognise the existence of a perfect divine being that gives perfect Universal Laws is much better than not to believe in a god, for if there is a perfect god, they will not allow their laws to be broken with impunity as in the case with many corrupt judges on earth, but will punish accordingly in due time. Therefore, to be pious and reverent is the surest path to true freedom as a perfect god will give perfect laws to prevent all manner of slavery, tyranny and moral wantonness, even if we do not understand why they are good laws at times.”
