Godess Radha

Goddess Radha is a well-known deity in Hindu Mythology. She is also known as Radharani in the northern part of India. For her deep devotion towards Krishna, Radha is usually depicted with Krishna. Radha is sometimes considered as the incarnation of Goddess Lakshmi, the consort of Lord Vishnu.

Radha- the Embodiment of Love
The love story of Radha-Krishna has become a legend in the Hindu mythology. The story is believed to have taken place in the Dwapar Yuga, when both of them took birth in this world. Radha was a cowherdess, who through her beauty and charm captivated the heart of Lord Krishna and became his beloved goddess. Lord Krishna is considered to be the incarnation of Lord Vishnu, whose birth was predestined.

Krishna took avatar in order to slay the demon king Kansa and to spread happiness. During his life, Krishna met Radha and they fell in love with each other. Krishna had a motive behind his life i.e. to kill Kansa and to fulfill this mission; he had to face many problems. But, Radha with her intense affection and steady devotion helped Krishna to overcome the problems.

Radha - Devotee of Krishna
Radha represents the true devotee, both in the form of male and female. And Lord Krishna represents the divine. Intense love of Radha for Krishna symbolizes each devotee's passionate longing for ultimate unification with God. With her utmost devotion towards her lord, she became the supreme devotee of Lord Krishna. Today people remember Radha-Krishna in a single term. However, Radha was not the consort of Lord Krishna, but their love had united them for ever. Radha is an inescapable part of Krishna. Without Radha, Krishna doesn't mean anything and without Krishna, Radha is nothing.

Radha - The Goddess
Radha has attained the status of goddess in the Hindu Religion. Radha's immense love and dedication towards lord Krishna got her this position, which she truly deserves. Radha is the heavenly queen of Krishna's celestial world. Today, Radha is worshipped like any other goddesses in temples.



Radha Gayatri Mantra
Aum Vrashbhanujaye Vidmahe
Krishnapriyaye Dheemahi
Tanno Radha Prachodayat



Legends
The legends of Radha-Krishna have become immortal. There are numerous legends and stories of Radha and Krishna depicting their true love. Radha's devotion and dedication towards Sri Krishna is the most sincere one. Here are some legends of Radha-Krishna portraying their love for each other.

Radha Ashtami
Birthday of Radha is celebrated as Radhaashtami throughout the country and especially in the north, with full devotion and joy. Radha Ashtami is observed after 15 days of Janmashtami, which is celebrated as the birthday of Lord Krishna. Radharani's birthday is the sacred eighth day of the month of Bhadrapada (August-September). 

the land where Shri Krishna was born and spent his youth, has today little towns and hamlets that are still alive with the Krishna legend and still redolent with the music of his flute. Mathura, a little town on the River Yamuna was transformed into a place of faith after Lord Krishna was born here. Vrindavan, a village - once noted for its fragrant groves, is where he spent an eventful youth. There are numerous other little spots in the area that still reverberate with the enchantment of Shri Krishna.
City of Mathura
The City of Mathura, in Uttar Pradesh, the nucleus of Brajbhoomi, is located at a distance of 145 km south-east of Delhi and 58 km north-west of Agra. Covering an area of about 3,800 sq. km., today, Brajbhoomi can be divided into two distinct units - the eastern part in the trans-Yamuna tract with places like Gokul, Mahavan, Baldeo, Mat and Bajna and the western side of the Yamuna covering the Mathura region that encompasses Vrindavan, Govardhan, Kusum Sarovar, Barsana and Nandgaon.
The land of Braj starts from Kotban near Hodel about 95 km from Delhi and ends at Runakuta which is known specially for its association with the poet Surdas, an ardent Krishna devotee.Shri Krishna, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu, was born in the Dwapara Yuga as the eighth son of the Yadava prince Vasudev and his wife Devaki. To save him from the murderous intentions of his maternal uncle Kansa, the ruler of Mathura, the infant Krishna was spirited away soon after birth to Gokul, the village of the gopas (cowherds) in Braj (their pastureland). It was here that he grew to manhood, in the tender care of his foster parents Nand and Yashoda in the happy company of the cowherds.

N vasudev bhaktanam ashubham viddyate kwachit
Janm mrityu jara vyadhi bhayam naivopjayate

That is, nothing inauspicious, even in traces exists for the devotees of Lord Vasudev Krishna. The devotee need not be afraid of the rigors of birth, death, old age or the diseases.
How could he spoke so emphatically in presence of Lord Krishna Himself? Because Krishna Himself told Arjun only a few days back, at the time of opening of the Great War:

Sarva dharman parityajya mamekam sharanam vraj
Ahm tvam sarva papebhyo mokshyayishyami ma shuchi

That is, giving up all your duties and affiliations surrender to me. I shall get you relieved of all your sins, do not worry.
This is the abstract of the abstract of Shrimad bhagvat gita ' do not worry, surrender to me.
Surrender is the outstanding feature of devotion, bhakti. But this bhakti itself evades the seeker and is not easily attainable.
In the land of Brijmandal, particularly Vrindavan, Bhakti and specially Madury Bhakti is achieved effortlessly. As Shrimad bhagvat Mahapuran says:

Dhanyam vrindavanam ten bhaktirnrityati yatra ch

That is, blessed is the land of Vrindavan where devotion is in full bloom.
So a mental pilgrimage to Vrindavan is a very satisfying experience granting you peace.
In Vrindavan, most revered Thakur Shri Banke Bihariji Maharaj is the embodiment of Madhury bhakti. As Swami Shri Haridas writes:

Prem samudra, roop ras gahre, kaise pavon thah

That is, You (Lord Shri Banke Bihariji Maharaj) are the ocean of love, the cosmic beauty and eternal bliss of this ocean is so deep that nobody can measure it.



|| Shri Radha Stuti ||
