Sri Brahma-samhita, Verse 29

Los Angeles, November 5, 1968
Prabhupada:
"I worship Govinda, the primeval Lord, who is the cause of all causes. He is in the cintamani-dhama." Cintamani-dhama means the place which is not made of earth and stone, but they are made of touchstone. Most probably you have heard the name of touchstone. Touchstone can turn iron into gold. So the Lord's abode is made of touchstone, cintamani. There are houses... As we have got our experience here in this world that houses are made of bricks, there, in the transcendental world, the houses are made of this cintamani stone, touchstone. Cintamani-prakara-sadmasu kalpa-vrksa [Bs. 5.29]. There are also trees, but those trees are not like this tree. The trees are kalpa-vrksa. Here you can take one kind of fruit from one tree, but there, from the trees you can ask anything, and you get it because those trees are all spiritual. That is the difference between matter and spirit. Cintamani-prakara-sadmasu kalpa-vrksa laksa-vrtesu [Bs. 5.29]. Such kind of trees, there are many, not one or two. All the places are covered by all those trees. Cintamani-prakara-sadmasu kalpa-vrksa-laksavrtesu surabhir abhipalayantam. And the Lord is very much fond of cowherding. And the cows there, they are called surabhis. Surabhi cow means you can milk as many times and as much as you like. Surabhir abhipalayantam. And laksmi-sahasra-sata-sambhrama-sevyamanam [Bs. 5.29]. And the Lord is always surrounded by the goddesses of fortune, laksmi-sahasra-sata, not one or two, but hundreds and thousands, hundreds and thousands of goddesses of fortune, they are always serving the Lord. And in this way, eternally, blissfully, the Lord is staying in His abode, which is called cintamani-dhama. (aside:) Now, how to stop this? (end)
