Time is flowing differently. Perception of space is twisted – in one moment you think you are lost, in the next moment you are exactly where you need to be, without any explanation of how it happened. Bodily functions are confused – sometimes you are dead tired in the middle of the day, sometimes you can party whole night. Or, you are able to go without peeing for 16 hours after drinking 4 litres of liquid.
All of that is the reason of extremely high spiritual vibrations which can confuse the mind and the body. Vrindavan is considered to be one of the holiest places on the planet, and even my Gurudev, Paramahamsa Vishwananda says that there is no place like Vrindavan anywhere else. It is the place of constant prayer and meditation. By hosting 5000 temples and being the land where Lord Krishna was walking Vrindavan becomes truly otherworldly experience.
But! Beware of “monkey problem”. Vrindavan locals usually don’t speak English, but they make sure to learn these two words. Before exiting the shops you will always hear: “monkey problem, monkey problem”. Monkeys really are the problem in Vrindavan, as they want to steal anything and everything from you – shinny jewellery, glasses, mobile phones, bananas, food, cola, water. You name it, they want it.
Only way which always works with “monkey problem” is: be humble, don’t look into their eyes, look down, mind your own business and pray they don’t see you.
