Srimati Lalita Devi ki jay
Jay Uchagaon ki jay
Jay Dehi Kunda ki jay

One day, Krishna Himself assumed the form of a begging brahman and came to Srimati Radharani. He asked Her,

"Please give Me some money."

"I have no money," answered Radharani.

"Must I leave empty-handed then?"

Unable to refuse the brahman and send Him away without a donation, She said,

"You can take Me in lieu of money."

The brahman (Krishna) was very pleased and eager to take Radharani, but when Radharani's parents, Raja Vrisabhanu and Kirtida Mayi, heard about this, they became very sad. They begged the brahman,

"How can we give You our only daughter? Please do not take Her away!"

"I cannot give Her up! But, all right, you can give Me the amount of gold equal to Radharani's weight, then I will not take Her."

Radharani's parents gave Him that amount of gold and got their daughter back. The brahman (Krishna) took that gold and left.

After that, Lalita Devi and other gopis made this pond here in memory of Srimati Radharani who wanted to give Her body (deha) instead of gold.

You have come to Vrindavan and you must be very careful—this place, as well as actually all places in Vrindavan, are places of Krishna's prem, love and affection, and this love is niskama-prema (devoid of any selfishness or mundane desires). You can see in our country that a woman gives her body (deha) to her husband, but this is not the same as what happens here.

Odds and Ends
'Every day I sing the same songs, morning and evening—what for? I can sing all songs, but I do not do that because you must practise.'

 

Nitai gunamani amara
'Nitai brought a flood of divine love to the land of Gauda. The devotees immersed themselves in it, but the unfortunate floated on its surface.'
নিতাই গুণমণি আমার

After 84 lakhs of births you have got this human body, but if you do not practise
under the proper guidance, you will have to again go to some other body.
