  • "On the order of Śrīman Caitanya Mahāprabhu, Śrī Rūpa Gosvāmī wanted to manifest the deity of Śrī Govinda that had previously been installed by Śrī Vajranābha in Vṛndāvana. One day, during his parikramā of Vṛndāvana, he became very restless thinking about the deity of Śrī Govinda. He sat under a tree on the bank of the Yamunā and wept, yearning for His darśana. At that time, a beautiful Vrajavāsī boy who was also doing parikramā walked past. He saw Śrī Rūpa Gosvāmī weeping under the tree, and asked him why he was crying. At first, Rūpa Gosvāmī said nothing, but when the boy persisted, he revealed to Him the pain in his heart. The Vrajavāsī boy brought Rūpa Gosvāmī to Gomā-ṭīlā and said, “Please listen. Every day, just before noon, one cow comes to this mound, and irrigates this place with the milk from her udder. I think that your desire will be fulfilled here.” Saying this, the boy immediately disappeared. Thinking of the beauty and sweet words of the boy, Śrī Rūpa Gosvāmī fainted. Upon regaining consciousness, he called the neighbouring Vrajavāsīs, who very carefully dug up the earth at that place. There, a little under the ground, was Śrī Govindajī, more beautiful than millions of cupids. They bathed the deity with great ceremony. News of this spread quickly, and crowds of people gathered to take darśana of Śrī Govindajī. Śrī Govindadeva is Vṛndāvaneśvara – the Lord (īśvara) of Śrī Vṛndāvana. In the Skanda, Padma, Varāha and other Purāṇas, He is said to be Vṛndāvana’s rāja-rājeśvara, King of kings. Śrī Govindadeva is thus the worshipful deity of Vṛndāvana. Śrī Caitanya-caritāmṛta (Ādi-līlā 8.50–states: “At the mahā-yogapīṭha in Vṛndāvana, beneath a desire tree is a golden throne bedecked with jewels. On that throne Vrajendra-nandana, Śrī Govindadeva, the transcendental Cupid, is seated.” Śrī Caitanya-caritāmṛta (Ādi-līlā1.16) also says: “I meditate upon Śrī Rādhā-Govindadeva, who are seated beneath a desire tree on an effulgent bejewelled throne in the supremely beautiful land of Vṛndāvana. There, They are always being served by Their beloved sakhīs, especially by Lalitā and Viśākhā.” There are many famous statements regarding Śrī Govinda in different scriptures.” Before Śrī Rūpa Gosvāmī’s arrival in Śrī Dhāma Vṛndāvana, it was unheard of to place a deity of Śrīmatī Rādhikā beside a deity of Śrī Kṛṣṇa. It so happened that a deity of Śrī Rādhikā, who was present in the temple of Jagannātha in Purī-dhāma at a place named Cakrabeḍa, was being worshipped by everyone as Lakṣmījī. Śrīmatī Rādhikā instructed the father of Mahārāja Pratāparudra, Puruṣottama Jānā, in a dream: “I am not Lakṣmī; I am Rādhā, the beloved of Vrajendra-nandana Śrī Kṛṣṇa. I am waiting for the manifestation of Śrī Govindadeva in Vṛndāvana. When He appears please send Me to Him with great care.” This deity, along with other deities of Śrīmatī Rādhikā, was later sent to Vṛndāvana with Śrī Jāhnavā Ṭhākurānī, and the contemporary gosvāmīs placed this deity of Śrī Rādhā to the left of Śrī Govindadeva. After being united with Śrīmatī Rādhikā, Śrī Govinda became famous by the name of Śrī Rādhā-Govinda. In 1670 AD, the tyrannical Mughal emperor Aurangzeb demolished Govindadeva's temple, destroying the top four floors. Before the temples of Vṛndāvana were destroyed, Śrī Govindajī and other worshipful deities of the Gauḍīyas were sent to Jaipura. The ancient and original Govindadeva along with His beloved Rādhikā now reside here in Jaipura near the royal palace." Excerpt from the book 'Sri Vraja-mandal Parikrama' by Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja
