(2) FROM WHERE THE MILK IN THE MILKY OCEAN OF VAIKUNTA COME?
There is an interesting information about it.
Krishna’s Goloka is the topmost planet that is situated above Vaikunta Planets.
In Goloka, Krishna is always playing His flute along with Radharani and Gopis, under the Kalpa Vriksha tree called KADAMBA.
Hearing the melodious music of Krishna’s flute, the cows automatically release their milk from their udders.
The milk released by innumerable cows pour on the Vaikunta Planets that are just under the Goloka.
So, these milk form MILKY OCEAN on which Lord Vishnu is residing.
