Shri Gaura Ganoddesa Dipika

 

rasajnah shri-vrindavanam iti yam ahur bahu-vido

yam etam golokam katipaya-janah prahud apare;

sita-dvipam prahuh param api para-vyoma jagadur

navadvipah so ’yam jayati paramascarya-mahima.

 

In the Shri Gaura-ganoddesa-dipika, it is said: “Some devotees expert in relishing the mellows of bhakti declare that Navadvipa is identical with Vrindavana. Some very learned devotees say that Navadvipa is actually the spiritual planet Goloka. Some say that Navadvipa is the planet Svetadvipa. And others say that Navadvipa is actually the spiritual sky (paravyoma) of Vaikuntha. All glories to the superexcellent opulences of  Shridhama Navadvipa!”
