“Oh, behold Vrndavana! It is so beautiful with its many blissful, splendid groves of kalpa-vrksa trees; its many parrots and other birds, intoxicated by singing Vedic hymns glorifying Krsna; its many deer who are so pleasing to Krsna; its splendid transcendental lakes, ponds, and streams, all filled with water as sweet as nectar; and its mountains of valuable jewels.” (Srila Prabhodhananda Sarasvati’s Sri Vrndavana-mahimamrta, Sataka 1, Text 45)
