Hello Friends!

Look at the following description...

(Srimadbhagavatha Canto-1,Chapter-16,Verse-18)

"The bull[Dharma]wandering around met with the aggrieved cow [mother Earth] who had tears in her eyes like a mother who has lost her calf."

This reminds me of the story predicting the reason behind solar eclipse i.e, Rahu swallowing Sun.

It is said that the Puranas are filled with various events. sometimes as allegorical works, and sometimes as historical facts. 

I would like to hear your views!

Any idea about such predictions?Are some of the events in our historical texts like Srimad Bhagavata Purana metaphors (like in the above mentioned examples) with hidden meaning?

Radha - The Divine's Partner & The Partner Divine

She does not feature in Srimad Bhagavatham, nor Hari Vamsa nor the Mahabharata. Some say she was older than Krishna, others say she was already married / betrothed to Aiyyan. Some even question the sanctity of her relationship with Lord Krishna. So who was this Radha?

Radha represents the Desire / Yearning which causes the Divine Supreme Power to manifest itself. At first, the need, the longing, the desire to bring the Supreme Power on Earth has to be present , God can incarnate only after that. Hence Radha - who represents the Ichcha Shakti - is considered older than Krishna.

Radha being already married/ engaged represents the soul's  (jivatma's) link with the sansarik world. She broke her link with with the world and its attachments to unite with the Parabrahman (Krishna)

Radha represents the pure selfless surrender that only wants to merge with the Lord- asking nothing in return - not companionship, not moksha, not even lasting happiness. Radha asks only the experience of merging with the Lord.

Radha was the Divine's Partner. She herself was a divine partner.

Yes,Varaaliji,I read the same thing long ago.Radha's love towards Krishna is not just the relation between a man and woman.Their relation was spiritual where Radha represents the soul and Krishna the super soul.

Beautiful. Simply Beautiful.
Clap I have never read a more beautiful interpretation!

And to answer the questions, yes many accounts, in fact, most have allegorical meanings as well as literal meanings.

As other members said, this relationship is a metaphor for devotee and God...
It is represented in form of love.It is not physical incest .It was spiritual union symbolically described.
 
Even in Vedas god is compared to a dedicated wife who's love is only for her husband and vice versa.
 
Not only Radha,the same applies for other Gopis,Meera,Sakkubai etc.
I can say Krishna's love for Radha is the same love he had for Uddhava,Arjuna,Cows and all his devotees!Smile
 
Once Meerabai said "It is Krishna as my mother,it is Krishna as my father,it is Krishna as my husband and it is Krishna as my friends.It is Krishna everywhere.
 
This itself explains the meaning of divine love where Lord's devotees experience his presence in every inch of this world.
