Gurudeva,please accept my humble obiesances at the dust of your lotus feet.
I have a question regarding Shri Yogapitha.Yogapitha is eternal residence of Supreme Personality of Godhead,its present in Navadvipa Dhama since beginning of time.
What is the exact meaning of Yogapitha?What is the name of place of residence(home) of Lord Krishna in Shri Vrindavana Dhama?The Glories of SHri Navadvipa dhama are endless.but the Glories of Shri Yogapitha will be more glorious as Lord Gauranga appeared and personally stayed There with His intimate devotees.please tell us the Glories of Shri Yogapitha.

Answer by Swami Gaurangapada:
Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! Please read the glories of Shri Yogapitha in Shri Navadvipa Dhama Mahatmya in the VaniBase. Yoga means union and pitha means the sanctuary. The place where the soul is united in the direct service of the Pancha Tattva in Navadvipa and the Divine Couple in Vrindavana is known as Yogapitha. Also it is known as the Yogapitha because it is the eternal meeting place of Lord Gauranga and His Associates and of Shri Shri Radha Krishna. There is a divine Yogapitha in Shri Ekachakra and Shri Puri Dhaam as described by Shrila Narahari Chakravarti Thakura in Bhakti Ratnakara.
