MATHURA 
The cradle of Krishna Lila

It is this punyabhumi about which puranas expound that any type of sin committed in any place gets purged off in a thirtha, but one committed in a tirtha slicks hard, whereas the sin committed in Mathura is destroyed in Mathura itself. Sure, there can't be any residue clinging to body to be accumulated with age due to interest growing to enormous proportions. What a boon! And how sacred!! It is this kshetra and its presiding deity that Vaishnava cult raised them to Himalayan heights with statements such as: there is one scripture, that is I3bagavadgita; there is one Acharya that is Sri Krishna; there is one mantra, that is Krishna mantra: the most sacred chant of all; there is one k0ittia that is Mathura; there is one God, that is Krishnaparamatma; and finally there is one duty, that is seva-worshipping of HIM. Furthermore, there is a belief that the word Mathura, whose principal letters, M, U & A, represent the three components of the mystic syllable, A U M, the chief cause of creation, and as such, it is holding out another attraction for the orthodox Hindus; for, they interpret that the three letters stand for the. divinities of the Hindu Trinity Brahma, Vishnu and Maheswar. With such deification by every school of Vaishnavism, the place became the Bhooloka Vaikuntha for all devout Hindus, and so, an unending stream of pilgrims found round the year.

An infinite number of divyalilas imbued with inexplicable mystery said to have occurred in this thirtha kshetra are enshrined in several genres of literatures of all languages in India and abroad, and in fact each felt honoured in eulogizing the glorious anecdotes of Sri Krishna, from childhood days to the historic day of that greatest exodus to Dwaraka, built in the midst of sea to be screened from the nefarious maneuvers of Jarasandha, the arch enemy of the Yadava community.
