Jayapataka Swami: Rādhārāṇī played the flute and attracted Kṛṣṇa, Kṛṣṇa said ‘You made this beautiful dhāma for Me, Navadvīpa dhāma. This place is non-different from Vṛndāvana’ and so then Kṛṣṇa merged with Rādhārāṇī,They were one, They became two and then became one again. And then He was Lord Caitanya. He had the color and heart of Rādhārāṇī but He was Kṛṣṇa. So, Kṛṣṇa said that Navadvīpa was non-different from Vṛndāvana. And Narottama dāsa Ṭhākura sang that gaura-maṇḍala-bhīmi, jeba jāne cintāmaṇi, tāra haya vraja-bhūmi vāsa – of course, we think this place is sacred because Lord Caitanya was here. But Lord Caitanya, He was enjoying Vṛndāvana. So here we go on Navadvīpa parikramā and remember the pastimes of Lord Caitanya.
