It is said that even the likes of Brahma are powerless to effectively reach its ends (Navadvipa mandalera mahima apara brahma adi nahi jane varne sadhya kara). It is for this reason that Navadvipa Mandala, at whose center shines Sri Dham Mayapur, is gloried as the essence of all holy abodes (‘sarva Dhama sar’). One who understands the transcendental nature of this holy dham, achieves the highest spiritual perfection (‘Sri-Gauda-mandala-bhumi yeba jane chintamani ,tara haya vraja-bhume vasa’). We have covered the details and discussed at great lengths about the numerous ancient holy sites of Mayapur-Nabadwip dham and their great significance in two of our books – Sri Navadvipa Bhava Taranga – Waves of ecstatic moods in Navadvipa & An ecstatic ride across ancient spiritual Bengal – Part 3: Nadia & Kalna Archives.
