Vrindavan is a town in north central India, about ninety miles southeast of Delhi. It was in Vrindavana that the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Lord Krishna, displayed His transcendental pastimes during His appearance on this planet some five thousand years ago. Over the course of centuries, the places of Krishna’s pastimes were lost to human memory, until they were rediscovered in the sixteenth century by Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, who is Krishna Himself in the role of His own devotee.

But Vrindavana is more than a place of historical importance. According to the teachings of Lord Chaitanya, the earthly Vrindavana is a replica of Goloka Vrindavana, Lord Krishna’s eternal abode in the spiritual sky. Great souls with transcendental vision can actually perceive this and worship Vrindavana as nondifferent from the Lord Himself. Even today, residents of Vrindavan commonly greet each other with shouts of, "Jaya Radhe!" meaning, "All glories to Krishna's beloved companion Srimati Radharani!"

As a regular feature of IYS, the IYS yatra 2014 went to Sri Vrindavan Dham. More than 700 young boys benefited from this unique opportunity & got innumerable unforgettable experiences of Sri Vraj Dham.
