Vrindavan, 2017.08.02 (VT): Jai Radhe. In this video you will get an idea of what the traffic situation is like on weekends and feast days when there are many people doing parikrama and many people coming in cars for darshan of Bihariji.
This situation is completely untenable. Vrindavan is a spiritual town and people should be able to go to all the temples and enjoy darshan on foot without being constantly harassed by honking cars.
Actually this honking in traffic jams, what is it supposed to accomplish? We ask all Brajwasis to support the traffic ban on weekends and we also ask the people driving to Vrindavan to leave their cars at one of the outside parking lots and walk to Bihariji or to your guru’s ashram.
This is the way spiritual life was traditionally done. Just like the Nimbarki sampradaya’s acharyas (Shriji Maharaj) take off their shoes at the Parikrama Marg before entering the town, and walk to their destination.
This may not be possible for everyone, but as far as possible this is how visitors to Vrindavan should treat the Dham – like a holy place. And those who are planning Vrindavan’s development also need to develop their sense of the holy.
