Puja is His cult. Both in Govardhana near Mathura and Raivataka here, He worshipped the
hills and their forests. He brought the Parijata and the Vaijayanti Tulsi and planted them
here. He is the guardian deity of the Vana Mahotsava; and so we meet to offer Him homage.
"This spot awakens wonderful memories of Prabhasa Tirtha. I see
before me Balarama, his hands on the shoulders of his wives, enjoying the voluptuous touch
of the breezes flowing from the Western Sea. I see Dharmaraja, the eldest of the Pandavas,
coming here on a pilgrimage to the Shrine of Somanatha.
