What is Vrindavan Dust and why is it so sacred?
In the spiritual realm, the highest and holiest of places is Vrindavan. It is Vrindavan, where Krishna choose to make his supreme home. Since Krishna is holy, his home, Vrindavan is holy and therefore, the dust of Vrindavan which is no different from Krishna, is also holy.
- “Because Vrindavan Dust is not different from Krishna, when you take a little dust from Vrindavan Dhama, it means you are taking dust from Krishna’s lotus feet” (Shrila Prabhupada, Tape 75/89)
- “The dust of Govinda’s (another name for Krishna) lotus feet is so sacred that even Brahma, Shiva and the goddess of fortune Rama take the dust on their heads to dispel sinful reactions.” (Srimad Bhagavatam 10.30.29)
- “The dust of Krishna’s lotus feet, which is the source of holiness for all places of pilgrimage, is worshipped by all the great demigods. The principal deities of all planets are engaged in His service, and they consider themselves most fortunate to take the dust of the lotus feet of Krishna on their crowns.” (Srimad Bhagavatam 10.68.37)
People often want the dust of Vrindavan to be placed in a silver kavach around their neck, so no matter where they travel, they will always feel spiritually connected to God.
