This article might not be for everyone, but especially for those who are sincerely chanting Hare Krishna Mahamantra or holy names of Lord and love Vrindavan Dham very very much. There might be some inner direction for rare few sincere seekers in this article.
If anybody is reading this and is aspiring for topmost prema bhakti, they can continue reading this article, but my suggestion would be to do so only after reading the complete confidential meaning (till the bottom) of Hare Krishna Mahamantra.
So, it's good to get wowed by darshans of deities or just by seeing places of Vrindavan. Meditating on Vrindavan Dham is a topmost bhajan. But nama, rupa (form), guna (qualities), lila (passtimes), dham can't be meditated in its true form without actually doing shudh nama.
Even simple meditation on Sri Vrindavan Dham like thinking about lanes, or remembering deities of various temples or Keshi Ghat at Yamuna of prakat (manifest) Vrindavan is good. It reminds one of our Sriji and Krishna.
This divya (divine) swarup (form) of Vrindavan sprouts in the heart of the seeker by kripa (mercy) of Rasika Acharyas. Though a slight glimpse of Nitya-Goloka-Vrindavan has been explained in confidential pieces of literature like Krishna Bhavanamrta, Govinda Lilamrta and Ujjvala Nilamani. Though one should not approach to read these books directly and rather follow this order of reading books as not everybody has adhikar (eligibility) for reading the above-mentioned books, especially in initial stages of their spiritual life.
The fruit of sincere nama japa (and desperately praying for vraj prema bhakti in the mood of vrajvasis) is to get a chance to meet a Premi Rasika Vaishnav. Meeting Krishna is not difficult. But the fact is that that meeting a true Rasika Acharya who can guide you to Krishna is very very much difficult. It is mostly based on past life karma, sincere nama-japa, intense prayers and majorly kripa (mercy) of Rasika Acharyas themselves.
Though, it is not important that this meeting with them would be in physical form only. It can be from the heart as well. The Rasika Acharyas and guru tattva will guide you through various ways (Read here on how).
Hare Krishna Mahamantra japa and sankirtan directs the sincere seeker to a Premi Rasika Vaishnav, who direct the seeker to Gayatri or 2nd initiation. This Gayatri is either received via a bonafide guru tattva via ears or by heart. Gayatri directs the sincere seeker to inner groves of Vraj Vrindavan in their original identity. And then, the real swarup (form) of Vrindavan sprouts in the heart of the seeker. The meaning of guru tattva, second initiation and how to identify a bonafide guru have been described in detail here.
It's up to the seeker to realise the inner tattva, which primarily depends on their lobha (greed) and lalsa (desire) for vraj-prema-bhakti. Srila Prabhupada has given us everything.
There are many articles on this site which I was forced to write by guru-tattva while sitting at Radha Damodar Mandir, Srila Rupa Goswami Bhajan Sthali, Banks of Yamuna, Nityananda Vat, Bhandirvan amongst many confidential places in Vrindavan. If a seeker is sincere, humble, and wants the rare confidential vraj-prema-bhakti, it's up to them to realise this by intensely chanting Hare Krishna Mahamantra.
Nama Nama Nama!
Jai Jai Shri Radhe!
