By Maura Corcoran (Vrindaban Research Institute). The essential nature of Vrindavana is explored by critical analysis of the immense corpus of Vaisnava literature. Scholars traditionally resort to historical geographical analysis and a hypothetical chronology of ancient Indian literature. Dr. Corcoran relies on Sanskrit Vedic sources to discredit conclusions that Krishna is a normal person deified after his death, and that the relation between Krishna and Vishnu was contrived to support this deification. Rather, Krishna's eternal lila goes on in transcendent divine Vrindavana.
