Sarweswari Sri Radha Devi

Who is Sri Radha? (Continued..)


Sri Krishnas with a heavy heart, is contemplating within himself.
 

 

 
 
Eswaraha Paramaha Krishnaha Sachidananda Vigrahaha Anadiradirgovinda Sarvakarana Karanam.
----
 
 

Oh ! Govinda, you are the foremost Lord and embodiment of Sachidananda. You are the cause of causation.

 
 

 

The scriptures commend my blissful form this way. All beings of the three universes derive pleasure out of me. But who can give profound pleasure except Sri Radhaji. Her gracious glances will immerse me in Ananda Bhava Samadhi (intense blissful Divine State). Who can possess great virtues than me in the whole universe? Only Sri Radhaji shines with great treasure of virtues than me. This Flute attracts thousands of Gopis and all the universes. But its music is not giving me happiness. If Radhaji comes near and touches me calling 'kanhaiya', I forget all the universes and immerse in extreme happiness.

Brahmavaivartha Mahapurana reveals a great truth through the praising of Sri Krishna.
 

 

 
 
Krishnamvadanthi mam Lokasthvayaiva Rahitham Yadha
Sri Krishnamcha sada Tepi Tvayaivas Sahitham Param.
----
 
 

Without you I am called 'Krishna'. With you I am Sri Krishna.

 
 

 

This sentence which is declared by Sri Krishana clearly establishes that Sri Radhaji is the Supreme Divine.

Once on the banks of the Yamuna Sri Krishna Graced Lord Shiva with the Divya Darsan (transcendental appearance) of his form with dual hands (dwibhija Swaroopa) and told him that the 'darshan' of this 'roopa' (form) was a rare happening.
 

 

 
 
Viharamya naya nityamasyah premavasee kruthaha
manthu mathpriyam Vidhi Radhikam paradevatham
----
 
 

Captivated by her Love I roam with her. Know that she is my Diety Sri Radhaji. Know that she is the essence of Divine Love

 
 

-Padma puranam 

 

Lord Shiva questioned "How to reach your Lotus Feet" Sri Krishna replied "With 'Gopi Bhava' surrender unto both of us. You can attain me."
 

 

 
 
Yo mameva prapannascha mathpriyam na maheswara na kadpai sachapnothi Mamevam The Mayoditham
----
 
 

If one surrenders to me without having surrendered to Radhaji , one cannot attain my 'darshan'

 
 

-Padmapuranam  

 
 

 

 
 
Sakrudavam Prapanno va Mathpriyamekikam Sutha
Sevathenanyabhavene Sa mamethi na Samsayaha.
----
 
 

Even if one does not surrender to me and worships and serves Sri Radhaji alone with singlemindedness, I will bless him with my 'darsan'. This is beyond any doubt.

 
 

-Padma Puranam 

 

Above averments of Sri Krishna in the Padma Purana ellucidate if a Jeeva worships and surrenders himself to Radhaji without being so on Sri Krishna, He (Sri Krishna) will surely shower His grace upon such being.

Now it is very clear from all the above sayings that Sri Krishna resides as 'Bhava Swaroopa' within Radhaji and he becomes one with Radhaji in his 'aradhana' (worship)

A devotee to become His servant, it is but inevitable to attain the Grace of Sri Radhaji his inner shakhthi. This fact is declared by Krishna once again in another holy book Naradapancharatra.
 

 

 
 
Satyam Satyam Punassatyam Satyameva Punah Punah
Radha namna Vina loke Matprasado na vidyathe.
----
 
 

Without the grace of Sri Radha no one can attain my Prasad (grace). This is true, true, true..

 
 

 

Devi Bhagavatham declares the Omnipotence, Paramountey and Supreme Divinity of Sri Radhaji in this Sloka
 

 

 
 
Krishna Pranadhika Devi thadadheeno Vibhuryathaha
Raseswari Thasyanithyam thoya heenona thishtathi
----
 
 

 
 

 

Vedas Praise Sri Krishna as 'Krishnestu Bhagawan Swayam' - "Krishna is personified Supreme Lord." Sri Radha is the life breath of Krishna. She is the controller of Sri Krishna. She is Raseswari. She is the master of the Rasa played by Krishna. Without Radha there is no Krishna. Oh ! What a great sayings these are.

The philosophy of Radhaji is uncomparable infinite unfathomable. This fact is revealed by many vedic treatises - Sritis, Smrithis, Pranas and Thanthras.

In the year 1961 a great conference was held at Patna. The convenor of the Unique conference was Dr Baldev Upadhyaya, a professor in Sanskrit at Benaras Hindu University. The sole subject that was discussed during the three day conference was 'Sri Radha Parameswari'. Scholars, linquists, poets from all parts of the country participated in the meeting. In their speeches they dwelled on the Swaroopa (form) Swabhava (nature) and philosophy of Sri Radhaji in detail. At the end of the conference the participants declared with one voice that Sri Radhaji is the Mukhyashakthi (Paramount power) and Swamini (Master) of Sachidananda Poorna Purushothama (The Supreme Lord). They also announced that this truth is the essence of all spiritual Texts and Scriptures. The essentials of the discussions were released as a Book of 523 pages known as "Bharatheeya Vangmay me Sri Radha.
