Krsna in Dwaraka, Mathura and Vrindavana.

From an impartial study of Krishna’s pastimes in Dwaraka, Mathura and Vrindavana, we understand that these pastimes become more and more intimate as we go from Dwaraka to Mathura to Vrindavana. In Dwaraka, Krishna is the King, and He is worshiped in great awe and reverence. In Mathura, that mood of awe and reverence reduces. And in Vrindavana, Krishna appears as a simple cowherd boy without displaying any of His opulence. He is in His original form as Gopal tending cows, playing with cowherd boys, and dancing with the cowherd girls. Therefore, since Vrindavana Krishna represents God in His original form, He is described as the most supreme in Vrindavana.
