Dheera Sameera Kunj
Dheera means mild or gentle and Sameera means wind. Thus the place where wind flows very mildly or gently being influenced by the mesmerizing sound of Krishna’s flute is named as Dheera Sameera Kunj. It’s said that once Lord Krishna was sitting with Radharani at this very place in Vrindavan and was enthralling her by playing the charming melodies from his flute. The sweet sound flowing out from the flute of Lord Krishna was so pleasant that it mesmerized the hearts of all the living bodies of Vrindavan. That day the wind was blowing very hard but when it passed by this place of Dheera Sameera Kunj it suddenly slowed down its pace and started blowing in a very gentle and graceful manner under the influence of the sweet music emanating from Krishna’s flute. The wind thus started flowing as if it’s enjoying the pleasure of those beautiful and sweet melodies from the Krishna’s flute and didn’t want to be separated from it. Later on Gauridas Pandit who was the disciple of Sri Nityananda Prabhu established a temple at this Dheera Sameera Kunj and started worshipping the deities of Sri Shyama Raya here. The Pushpa samadhi (cenotaph) of Sri Gauridas Pandit can also be seen nearby to the temple.
