Sri Radhastami – Sunday 23.09.2012

Dear Devotees and Friends

Hare Krishna. All glories to His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada!

Thanks to His Divine Grace we are going to celebrate the divine appearance of Srimati Radharani. We would like to warmly invite you to also attend and simply get the mercy of this most intimate and dear devotee of Krishna. It is a fact that one can very easily get the mercy of Krishna by first approaching Srimati Radharani!

Srila Prabhupada:

“We are Krsna’s parts and parcels and have been created to give pleasure to Krsna. The chief pleasure potency is Radharani, and so Radha-Krsna are always together. Whereas the material energy is conducted by the external potency, Maya, the spiritual world is conducted by the internal potency, Radharani. We often pray to Radharani because She is the pleasure potency of Krsna. The very word “Krsna” means all-attractive, but Radharani is so great that She attracts Krsna. If Krsna is always attractive to everyone, and Radharani is attractive to Krsna, how can we imagine the position of Srimati Radharani? We should try humbly to understand and offer Her our obeisances, saying, “Radharani, You are so dear to Krsna. You are the daughter of King Vrsabhanu, and You are Krsna’s beloved. We offer our respectful obeisances unto You. Radharani is very dear to Krsna, and if we approach Krsna through the mercy of Radharani, we can easily attain Him. If Radharani recommends a devotee, Krsna immediately accepts him, however foolish he may be. Consequently in Vrndavana we find that devotees chant Radharani’s name more often than Krsna’s. Wherever we go in India we will find devotees calling, “Jaya Radhe.” We should be more interested in worshiping Radharani, for however fallen we may be, if somehow or other we can please Her, we can very easily understand Krsna. If we try to understand Krsna by the speculative process, we will have to spend many lifetimes of speculation; but if we take to devotional service and just try to please Radharani, then Krsna can be very easily realized. Radharani is such a great devotee that She can deliver Krsna.”

 

“Try to understand the Radha’s position in relationship with Krsna. This Krsna consciousness movement is very nice. Try to understand it in so many ways. We have got immense literature. If lifelong we try to understand, there is sufficient stock. It is not hackneyed. You’ll get nava-navayaman. Newer and newer things you’ll get, experience. Anandambudhi-vardhanam. And the more and more you get relish in Krsna consciousness, your transcendental pleasure becomes more and more appreciated. It is so nice. Anandambudhi-vardhanam.”

 

So all of our dear devotees or friends, pls come and pray to Srimati Radharani!
