Goloka is the eternal abode of Krishna, Svayam bhagavan according to some Vaishnava schools, including Gaudiya Vaishnavism and the Swaminarayan Sampraday. The scriptural basis for this comes from texts like Bhagavata Purana, Padma Purana[1], Brahma Vaivarta Purana[2], Brahma Purana[3], Brahmanda Purana[4], Skanda Purana[5], Mahabharata[6], Narada Pancaratra[7], Garga Samhita[8] and Brahma Samhita. While in most of the Bhagavata Purana text, Krishna is presented as the cosmic Vishnu, the supremely powerful deity under whom all other partial divinities work, in the tenth book of the Purana he is especially portrayed as the supreme person who resides in his abode Goloka.[9] It describes Goloka as a highest planet or realm (loka) of the Vaikuntha planets for the devotees of Krishna who is known as the protector of cows and hence the latter are found in abundance in Goloka. Also sometimes referred to as Vrindavan, it is a land of plenty, rich with natural beauty bearing a resemblance to Garden of Eden.[citation needed] In Goloka Krishna resides with Radharani, Krishna's eternal consort, and countless other devotees, wherein he performs his divine play, known as lila. It's believed that souls return to the material world again and again to perfect themselves and go on to Krishna's heaven, Goloka Vrndavana.[10] Contents 1 Etymology 2 Gaulokvihari 3 Kṛṣṇaloka structure 4 See also 5 References and notes Etymology Goloka means the world of cows. The Sankrit word 'go' can refer to either cows or star, and loka is translated as world or planet. Gaulokvihari Shri Gaulokvihari (centre) at the Swaminarayan Temple Mumbai In some temples, such as the Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Mumbai, the murtis installed are that of Shri Gaulokvihari and Radhikaji. Gaulokvihari is Krishna, (vihari is resident of, hence, resident of Gaulok, Gaulokvihari) and Radhika is Radha, his consort. Kṛṣṇaloka structure All the Vaikuṇṭha planets are like petals of a lotus flower, and the principal part of that lotus, called Kṛṣṇaloka or Goloka Vṛndāvana, is the center of all the Vaikuṇṭhas. Thus the expansions of Kṛṣṇa in various forms, as described herein, as well as His various abodes on the spiritual planets in the spiritual sky, are unlimited. Kṛṣṇaloka is divided into three different portions: Gokula, Mathurā and Dvārakā. As stated in Brahma-saṁhitā (5.43), all the Vaikuṇṭha planets in the spiritual sky (known as Viṣṇuloka) are situated in the planet known as Kṛṣṇaloka, Goloka Vṛndāvana.
