This Place Intensifies the Desires of the Amorous Persons

Śrīmad Devī Bhāgavatam, Book 12, Chapter 10 — On the description of Maṇidvīpa

Next to this Kāṃsya enclosure comes the third enclosure wall of copper. It is square-shaped and seven yojanas (28 miles) high. Within this are forests of Kalpavṛkṣas (wish-fulfilling trees), bearing golden leaves and flowers and fruits like gems. Their perfumes spread ten yojanas (40 miles) and gladden things all around. The king of the seasons preserves always this place. The king’s seat is made of flowers; his umbrella is of flowers; ornaments made of flowers; he drinks the honey of the flowers; and, with rolling eyes, he lives here always with his two wives named Madhu Śrī and Mādhava Śrī. The two wives of Spring have their faces always smiling. They play with bunches of flowers. This forest is very pleasant. Oh! The honey of the flowers is seen here in abundance. The perfumes of the full-blown flowers spread to a distance of ten yojanas. The Gandharvas, the musicians, live here with their wives.

41–60. The places around this are filled with the beauties of the spring and with the cooing of cuckoos. No doubt this place intensifies the desires of the amorous persons!

OTHER COMMENTS

and the description is transcripted in detail by Maharshi Veda Vyāsa apparently for the consumption of mortals to carry conviction into their consciousness.

Maharshi Veda Vyas assured that reading, listening or imagining about Mani Dvipa and of the Glories of Devi Bhagavati would provide peace of mind, contentment and fresh springs of hope, purpose and direction of life. Especially so, when new projects are launched and new actions are initiated as also when apprehensions, obstacles, diseases, tragedies or even the facing of death are envisaged by anybody.
