We shall do the needful so that Vrindavan will be restored. And Yamuna Ji will be without dirt and black water. We don’t want a bridge in front of Keshi Gath. My Gurudev lived 30 years in Vrindavan. It is our duty to insist that all this will be done. Even we can put more water from the Ganges to increase the Yamuna’s flow.
Doctor Pandiya, Head of Gayatri Parivar
K.P.S. Gill is a very capable man. Tell him that I will give any support I can against the bridge and to bring the Yamuna back to Vrindavan. Pancha Gauda Prabhu and Dina Bandhu should head up our campaign and we will send it all in the name of the Indian devotees of Iskcon. If we help in this way Mr. Gill will have even more strength in his efforts. We will join the Braj Vrindavan Heritage Alliance and let us all work together for this noble goal.
Sripad Gopal Krishna Swami, Iskcon
All the babas will support. Jay prakash company who has started the bridge without previous design of any agency are also involved with some Ganga dham project. Vrindavan has to be protected. It is our sacred duty.
Sohambaba – Mahamandalesvara of Juna Akara
I will move every bit of support possible that Vrindavan will come to the original beauty with restored ghats.
She is our own mother Yamuna Maharani. Whoever does not take care of their mother is doomed.

Please tell Mr. KPS Gill to contact me for any help to save Vrindavan.
Our Hindu pilgrimage sites have to be glories. Spotless. Examples for the country and the world. People come here to Haridvar to fill themselves with spiritual energy to be good people in their lifes. Thus these dhamas are treasures of uncalculate value. Greatest pain and expenditure must be taken to give the world Vrindavan Dham as beautiful as Hrishikesh and Haridvara. Please all of you see it done.
I am over 80 now and this was my 5th Kumbha Mela I was involved with. Nobody should say I can’t do it anymore or there are no experts or lack of money. India is quite capable of showing to the world what the greatest treasure of our country the teachings of Lord Krishna mean to us. Vrindavan means Krishna like Haridvara means Siva and Vishnu. Ayodya means Lord Ram. Which other country in the world has a history which has so much to offer to the world. We should be proud to use all our skills and modern tools as well to let our love to our culture be shown. Vande Mataram.

We have to protect Hinduism against the abuse and neglect in Vrindavan.
I will study the details to join the struggle against this situation. Vrindavan is a place which has great importance. The administration has to respond to the health hazard and the cultural loss created by the neglect of the urgent issues such as a clean unobstructed Yamuna River.
Swami Dayananda Sarasvati
We have to get together immediately in Vrindavan. I will get many more friends to join the action against the bridge.
Also Sri Ravi Shankar will help as soon as he returns to India. He loves Yamunaji and is into full action to clean our sacred life giving river.
I was not aware of the situation.
Swatantrananda Swami – friend of Sri Ravi Shankar
Our Beautiful Vrindavan has to be protected at any cost.
And that means many changes which are long overdue.
Parking, traffic free zones and cleaning up Yamunaji from all garbage and black water. Only sadhu unity will bring about a fast result in this respect .
Hamsananda Swami – from AIM for Seva
To oppose the bridge in front of Keshi Gath is our duty, but this will not be possible in the style of Mahatma Gandhi, because this administration is not interested in religious sentiments…
The only thing of importance to them is money, because of this they are creating such a disaster.
I want the Yamuna to flow in front of Vrindavan again, with stairs on both sides as in Haridwar.
Most important is that the water of the Yamuna should be clean, this is the duty of every Brajavasi. We cannot live with contaminated water. I remember the first time I arrived in Vrindavana; at that time the waters of the Yamuna were completely clean.
Continue in this valiant fight, for through it you will surely attract the benediction of Radharani. I am just leaving the hospital, but from my bed I say to you “Unite in the fight for the cause of Vrindavan.
