Syamasundara Sri Krsna, the son of the king of Vraja, is the ultimate limit of the Absolute Truth. He is the Supreme Personality of Godhead, the cause of all causes and the origin of everything, though He Himself is without origin. He is the personification of eternity, knowledge and bliss. He possesses all potencies and is the most merciful. He fully embodies and relishes all transcendental mellows. This same Sri Krsna, who performs pastimes filled with sweetness, displays the highest degree of magnanimity as Sri Gaurasundara, He who freely bestows transcendental love. Thus Sri Krsna and Sri Gaurasundara comprise an identical spiritual principle (tattva). Sri Krsna's abode, Sri Vrndavana-dhama, is similarly identical in all respects to Sri Gaurasundara's abode, Sri Navadvipa-dhama. The perimeter of both is approximately thirty-two miles (sixteen kosas). The Vedic scriptures reveal that Sri Gaurasundara's pastimes are the sequel to Krsna's pastimes.

In Vraja, Sri Krsna relishes the mellows of transcendental love, and in Sri Navadvipa-dhama He distributes them. That devotee who performs his devotional practices aspiring for the transcendental mellows of Vraja can easily attain this vrajaprema by taking exclusive shelter of Sri Gaurasundara and His dear associates in Sri Navadvipa-dhama, where offences are not considered. Hence, the glories of both Navadvipa-dhama and Vịndavana-dhama defy description. Devarsi Narada, Sri Uddhava and other exalted saints possess a high calibre of prema, but still they aspire to acquire this rarely attained vrajaprema. Sri Gaurasundara's abode easily bestows this prema to sadhakas who take its shelter. In conclusion, Sri Navadvipadhama is as supremely magnanimous as Sri Gaurasundara Himself.

Navadvipa-dhama consists of nine islands (nava means "nine" and dvipa means "island"), namely, Antardvipa, Simantadvipa, Godrumadvipa, Madhyadvipa, Koladvipa, Rtudvipa, Jahnudvipa, Modadrumadvipa and Rudradvipa. Furthermore, Sri Navadvipadhama is the abode of the nine types of devotional service as follows: Antardvipa - self-surrender; Simantadvipa - hearing; Godrumadvipa - chanting; Madhyadvipa - remembering; Koladvipa - serving the Lord's lotus feet; Rtudvipa - worshipping; Jahnudvipa - offering prayers; Modadrumadvipa - engaging as a servant; and Rudradvipa - serving as a friend. Sri Gaurasundara and His intimate associates enacted their pastimes throughout Navadvipa-dhama. Gaurasundara also performed pastimes in Sri Gauda-mandala, the area surrounding and including Navadvipa-dhama, where many of His associates appeared, performed their pastimes and practised their bhajana. To this day the places mentioned in this book serve to generate memories of the Lord's pastimes. These pastimes are eternal, as confirmed in Bhakti-ratnakara (1.57):

adyapiha sei lila kare gauraraya
kona-kona bhagyavan dekhibare paya
