Braj Dham, the sacred land of Shri Radha Krishna’s divine pastimes, made a remarkable stride towards environmental rejuvenation. Addressing the pressing issue of water pollution in the revered Kundas, a concerted effort led by revered spiritual leaders and environmental experts from ISKCON, UPBTVP, Govardhan Eco Village and Braj Dham Seva Pehal, in collaboration with UP BTVP via chairman Shailajakant Mishra and CEO Nagendra Pratap, have begun the restoration process of these water bodies .

Reflecting on the collective enthusiasm, Gauranga Das Prabhu Ji, member of ISKCON’s Governing Body Commission, said, “Cleansing the sacred Kundas of Braj is a labour of love and devotion. Every drop of restored water not only reflects purity but also mirrors our commitment to preserving the divine heritage of Shri Radha Krishna’s abode. Together, hand in hand, we embarked on this journey to nurture nature’s sanctity for the spiritual and ecological well-being of all. We hope our collective efforts serve as an eternal offering to the land that resonates with the divine pastimes.”
