TEXT 59

sapady evābhitaḥ paśyan
diśo 'paśyat puraḥ-sthitam
vṛndāvanaṁ janājīvya-
drumākīrṇaṁ samā-priyam


SYNONYMS

sapadi—immediately; eva—indeed; abhitaḥ—on all sides; paśyan—looking; diśaḥ—in the directions; apaśyat—Lord Brahmā saw; puraḥ-sthitam—situated in front of him; vṛndāvanam—Vṛndāvana; jana-ājīvya-druma-ākīrṇam—dense with trees, which were the means of living for the inhabitants; samā-priyam—and which was equally pleasing in all seasons.


TRANSLATION

Then, looking in all directions, Lord Brahmā immediately saw Vṛndāvana before him, filled with trees, which were the means of livelihood for the inhabitants and which were equally pleasing in all seasons.


PURPORT

Janājīvya-drumākīrṇam: trees and vegetables are essential, and they give happiness all year round, in all seasons. That is the arrangement in Vṛndāvana. It is not that in one season the trees are pleasing and in another season not pleasing; rather, they are equally pleasing throughout the seasonal changes. Trees and vegetables provide the real means of livelihood recommended for everyone. Sarva-kāma-dughā mahī (SB 1.10.4). Trees and vegetables, not industry, provide the real means of life.
