Glories of Gopi Bhumi – I

Hearing the glories of Gopi-Bhumi removes all sins. Simply by hearing about Gopi-Bhumi, which is so named because the gopis resided there, one becomes free from the bondage of karma.

“In Gopi-Bhumi, gopi-candana was manifested from the gopis’ cosmetics. One who marks his limbs with gopi-candana tilaka attains the result of bathing in the Ganga. One who daily wears gopi-candana tilaka attains the pious result of daily bathing in all sacred rivers. One who daily wears gopi-candana tilaka attains the result of performing one thousand asvamedha-yajnas and one hundred Rajasuya yajnas. He attains the result of giving charity and following vows at all holy places. He attains the goal of life. Of this there is no doubt.”

Twice as sacred as the mud of Ganga is the dust of Citrakuta. Ten times more sacred than that is the dust of Pancavati-tirtha. One hundred times more sacred is the dust of gopi-candana. Please know that gopi-candana is equal to the dust of Vrindavana.”

Gopi candana tilak“Even if, in past, he has committed hundreds of sins, if a person wears gopi-candana tilaka, yamaraja cannot take him away. How then can Yamaraja’s messengers touch him? A sinner who daily wears gopi-candana tilaka goes to Lord Krsna’s supreme abode, Goloka, which is beyond the world of matter.”

– Garga Samhita
