The 10th Canto of Shrimad Bhagavatam (Bhagavata Purana) describes the pastimes of Lord Krishna in detail. The pastimes of Lord Krishna are also summarized in KṚṢṆA, The Supreme Personality of Godhead by Prabhupada.
My question centers around the following two pastimes of the Lord:
Krishna was born in Mathura in the prison house of Kamsa. Vasudev immediately after the birth of Krishna took Him to Gokul.
Due to the atrocities of Kamsa; the inhabitants of Gokul left for Vrindavan and Krishna stayed there in a place which is today called Nandagram.
So regardless of where Krishna stayed during pastime with Kaliya or Indra (He was mostly in NanagGram according to me):
- Nandagram to Vrindavan distance: approx 45km.
- Nandagram to Govardhan: approx 29km.
So when Krishna was caught by Kaliya; Yashoda and all others came running to a place which is today called Kaliya ghat and is approx 45km from Nandagram.
A similar thing happened during Govardhan Lila of the lord; Govardhan is approx 29 km from Nandagram.
How did they travel so swiftly to such a far distance?
Considering that Krishna incarnated approximately 5000 years ago; I don't think they would have had very huge bodies or bodily abilities in comparison to us.
Is today's Vrindavan, the one in the Mathura district of Uttar Pradesh, the same which is mentioned in Bhagavatam?
