Through the spellbinding pages of Vraja-maṇḍala Darśana, Lokanāth Swami will take us on the traditional parikramā of Vraja-dhāma, following in the footsteps of Lord Caitanya and our beloved ācāryas. We will hear, see, smell, taste and feel the twelve timeless forests of Vṛndāvana. In fact, we will be there in transcendental sound. Everyone, please, let us dive deeply into this treasure Lokanāth Swami has given to us and enter into the eternal pastimes of the spiritual world.
Dear Guru Maharaja,
Please accept my most humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada !
All glories to Sri Sri Nitai Gaurasundara !!
On this last day of Kartika 2015, I would like to convey to You my deepest heartfelt feelings of gratitude.
I have just finished reading Your Vraja Mandala Darsana book and as recommended I read a chapter a day during Kartika.
Your beautiful book made me relive the best experience of my life. It definitely helped me to understand where I had been.
Your sublime realizations and wonderful narrations about the transcendental pastimes of Radha Krsna, Caitanya Mahaprabhu, the Goswamis, and the Vrajabasis went directly to my soul.
Your descriptions of the Parikrama are as colorful and perfect as the pages of Your book.
I have distributed 10 books now and have ordered another 5 that have already been reserved.
You have rendered an immense service for the whole of humanity by inaugurating the Vraja Mandala Parikrama in this age.
I hope one day to realize the great fortune I have of having been blessed by Your kind mercy.
Thank You Guru Maharaja,
Sri Vraja dhama ki jaya ! Sri Vraja-mandala parikrama ki jaya ! Srila Prabhupada ki jaya !
your insignificant servant,
Dear Lokanath Swami,
Pranamas. Thank you v. much for the new book.
Every evening during Karttika I presented one chapter of your book to devotees. I would read the chapter in advance and then give an overview,
along with some reading. I asked the devotees to sit close enough to see the big pictures, which I showed them by holding up the book. I did this for two weeks in Villa Vrindavan and for two more weeks in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Some devotees took a close look at the book. There were good questions about the topics, and everyone appreciated your sublime thoughts.
This is the full moon night of Karttika, so I will pray for the mercy of Sri Sri Radha-Syamasundara.
We have just received 2 copies of your book. One is for my wife Sudha. She
is thrilled with the book. The other is for Krishna Chaitanya das, your
disciple and his family.
Thank you very much.

Dear Lokanath Maharaj:
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
I was looking at your absolutely gorgeous “Vraja Mandala Darshan” book. What
a treasure of lila and knowledge. You have done us all a great service by
writing what was obviously a labor of love.
Beyond offering my appreciation, I also have a personal motivation. I was
captured by a photo of Sri Govindadev (Jaipur) found on page 201 / “Kamyavana –
Internal parikram”. I would really like to contact the photographer to get a
high resolution negative that I could then print into a 24 inch x 30 inch
photo. I will frame it and keep it in my room in Vrindaban to meditate on
while I am chanting japa.
Thanks for the help and again, thanks for the beautiful book.
Pujya HH Lokanath Swami,
PAMHO at your lotus feet. AGTSP. AGTSG&G.;
Thanks to take me to vraja – mandala Darshana mentally. Enjoyed reading.
Very well presented. I felt as if I was walking with Vaishnavas. I was
absorbed while reading. You literary transported me to vraja bhoomi at least
for the timebeing.
I am keen and serious to participate in 2016 Kartik Vraja Parikrama.
Please bless me so that my desire is translated into reality.
Your humble servant,
Deenbandhu Dasa, Surat.
Lokanath Maharaja, Haribol!!
Lokanath Swami Maharaja has been going for decades taking hundreds and hundreds and thousands of devotees on Vraja mandala Parikrama and he has compiled this book with all the information that he has researched and all the realisations that he has and all the enthusiasm is incredible and all the devotees had been with him. And now here I, we, have Vraja-mandala Darsana, a thirty days Parikrama series. Haribol!!
I don’t have to ask you to purchase a book. I don’t think you could resist.
Thank you for your wonderful encouragement here at Govardhan Eco-village. We all thank you Lokanath Swami Maharaja.
Dear Guru Maharaj,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
Would like to inform you that we have distributed all the 100 books here in
the North east and now I have ordered another 30 books. Of the total of
130 book, I have personally distributed about 60 copies.
Also, Guru Maharaj, myself and several devotees from our congregation have
taken sankalpa of reading 1 chapter for each day of Kartik. I have started
a phone conference where I read through each chapter and over 20 devotees
are joining the call every day.
Many have given their reviews so far and are so pleased to have this book;
they are amazed by the descriptions and the details presented.

Guru Maharaj, your mercy is only the way we can aspire the enlightenment. Vraja Mandal Darshan book is one of the best gift to the world to know more about Krishna and his intrinsic past times in Vrindavan. Each chapters are nectar and pearls in the same necklace of Sri Vrindavan Dham. it is a beautiful creation, artisanship, made this book a wonderful sculpture that everybody attracts immediately whoever come close to it.
Here in Central New Jersey, as soon as we received the book, we offered to Srila Prabhupada. It was Srila Prabhupada’s arrival day in US celebration.
Temple president, HG Madhupati Prabhuji announced and described about the book. Offered to Srila Prabhupad first, then we announced to the crowd. Everybody was eager to have the books.
After that His Holiness Janananda Goswami Maharaj visited our Bhakti Vriksha at home, I gave the book to Maharaj. Maharaj was very impressed. Then we distributed many copies to Bhakti Vriksha members. Maharaj personally signed the copies.
Then His Holiness Bhakti Sundar Maharaj visited the Bhakti Vriksha and stayed with me. Maharaj was very much impressed with the book. Maharaj said it is a beautiful creation. I gave my personal copy. I got it later.
In our congregation it is well received. I personally distributed 25 copies, and keeping more books to distribute in book distribution Marathon. Requested everybody whom I distributed to read one chapter everyday on Kartik.
Srila Gurudev, it inspired me very much. I am planning to Visit Vrindavan starting November 20th till November 28th. I am eager to meet you and offer my Dandavat prananm at your Lotus feet. I am humbly seeking where I can meet you. I would like to join with Parikrama for some days. I will check with Dinanukampa Mataji for your schedule.
2015 was remarkable. The year, the day we have the ‘Darshan of Vraja Mandal’.

Dear Dinanu Mataji
All Glories to Srila Prabhupada.
Again, thank you very much for the wonderful gift of H.H. Lokanath Maharaj’s book. I have never participated in the Vraja-mandala Parikrama, and as my health will probably not permit me to perform it in this lifetime; I will relish the book as the closest opportunity to do so.
If there is anyway that I can be of assistance to your guru-maharaj or yourself, please let me know.
Yours in service to Srila Prabhupada’s ISKCON.
