Miscellaneous Verses glorifying Srimati Radhika HERE:

Kalindi has stated that ''Surely Sri Radhika is the very soul of Lord Krishna Who is Atma-Rama, that is, One Who delights in Himself alone.''

Bhagavan Krishna is always immersed in Sri Radha consciousness, which is His very soul. Therefore learned sages who have grasped the secret esoteric significance of this deep mellow call him 'Atma-Rama.'

Without the mercy of Srimati Radhika, one can never attain Krsna. Therefore one must remember them together, as They are always nicely situated by each others'side.
(Srila Dhyana-chandra Goswami's Paddhati)

Shri Krishna says: O Narada!! If you have faith in the process of prema-bhakti and wish to attain my favour, then please become the worshipper of Srimati Radharani in the mood of ecstatic emotion.

Sri Krishna says: O Narada! I tell you truly truly, again truly, truly, again and again - without the mercy of Srimati Radharani, one cannot attain my mercy.(Narada Purana)

O' Radharani, the queen of Vrndavana, with the medicine of the red lac from Your lotus feet, please bring back to life this person now dead from the bites of the black snake of not seeing You. (Vilapa-kusmanjali by Raghunath Dasa Goswami)

I am Yours alone! I am Yours alone! I cannot live without You! O queen, please understand this and bring me to Your feet. (From Vilapa Kusumanjali by Srila Raghunatha dasa Goswami)

O Syame (Sri Radhe)! When will I worship You as Indira (Laksmi), when Your beautiful body is bound up by Syama's left arm? Krsna's beauty enchants all the people of the world and is even greater than that of Rama-ramana (Lord Visnu, Laksmi's husband).
SRI SRI GANDHARVA SAMPRARTHANASTAKAM By Srila Rupa Goswami text 3.


tebhyas tah pasu-pala-pankaja-drsas-tabhyo 'pi sa radhika (Sri Upadesamrta,10): and the high devotion of Srimati Radharani is categorically different from that of all the Gopis. The type of service found in Her is practically unaccountable, inconceivable. srutibhir vimrgyam (Bha: 10.47.61): the Rsis, the Seers, saw that the Vedic mantras were eternal. They are not creators of the mantras in the Vedas, they are only seers and feelers of spiritual current; they are only observers.

Sri Gopala-Tapani Upanishad: Chapter One [ Translated by Kusakratha Dasa ] text 42

Commentary by Srila Baladeva Vidyabhushana: The goddess of fortune here is Srimati Radharani, who is described in the Purusa-bodhini Upanisad. "Candravali and Radhika always remain at Lord Krishna's side. Laksmi, Durga, and the Lord's other potencies are expansions of Sri Radhika." The Gautamiya Tantra also explains: The transcendental goddess Srimati Radharani is the direct counterpart of Lord Sri Krishna. She is the central figure for the goddess of fortune. She possesses all the attractiveness to attract the all-attractive Personality of Godhead. She is the primeval internal potency of the Lord.


Sripad Raghunatha das Gosvami's 'Stavavali"

radheti nama nava sundara sidhu mugdham 
krishNeti nama madhuradbhuta gadha dugdham 
sarva kshaNam surabhi raga himena ramyam 
kritva tad eva piba me rasane kshudharte

"O my tongue suffering from thirst! Please mix the delicious fresh enchanting nectar of the name Radha with the wonderfully sweet condensed milk of the name KrishNa, add the fragrant delightful ice of pure passionate love and drink this charming drink at every moment!"


bhajami radham aravinda netram smarami radham madhura smitasyam 
vadami radham karunabharardram tato mamanyasti gatir na kapi

"I worship lotus-eyed Radha, I remember Radha with Her sweet smile on Her countenance, I speak of Radha, who melts of compassion. Thus I have no other shelter."


Shrila Prabhodananda Sarasvati.

Yo brahma rudra shuka narada bhishma mukhyair 
Alakshito na sahasa purushasya tasya 
Sadyo vashikarana churnam annata shaktim 
Tam radhika charana renum anusmarami. 
(Radha Rasa Sudhanidhi 4)

"I constantly remember Shrimati Radharani`s foot dust which is a fragrant transcendental powder possessed of unlimited potency, able to immediately subdue the Supreme being, Shri Krishna Who is not so easily seen even by great devotee-leaders like Brahma, Shiva, Shukadeva, Narada and Bhishma."


gaurange mradima smite madhurima netrancale draghima 
vakshoje garima tathaiva tanima madhye gatau mandima 
shroNyam ca prathima bhruvoh kutilima bimbadhare shoNima 
shri radhe hridi te rasena jadima dhyane'stu me gocarah

"O Sri Radhe! May the softness of Your transcendental golden body, the sweetness of Your smile, the wideness of Your eyes, the abundance of your bosom, the slimness of Your waist, the lightness of your gait, the wideness of Your hips, the crookedness of Your eyebrows, the redness of Your cherry-lips and the numbness of Your heart saturated with aesthetic loving sentiments, be present in my meditation."


verse 75 of Sri Radharasa Sudhanidhi

Vraja chandrendriya grama vishrama vidhushalika 
Krishna sarvendriyonmadi radhety akshara yugmaka 
(Srila Raghunatha Dasa Goswami’s 108 names of Sri Radhikha 45)

"Although Krishna is the pleasure giving like cooling moon for all the inhabitants of Vraja, still Srimati Radharani is the resting place for all of His senses which She completely maddens with the two syllables of Her name Radha.”


Yaj japah sakrideva gokulapater akarshakas tat kshanad 
Yatra premavatam samasta purushartheshu sphuret tucchata 
Yan namankita mantra japana parah pritya svayam madhavah 
Shri krishno’pi tad adbhutam sphuratu me radheti varna-dvayam. 
(Sri Radha Rasa Sudhanidhi 95)

"May the two strikingly wonderful syllables "Ra-dha”, that immediately attracts the Lord of Gokula (Krishna) when they are pronounced even once, that reveals the insignificance of all human pursuits (other than bhakti sadhana and prema) when there is love for Them, that are included in the mantra-formula repeated with great love by Lord Madhava (Vishnu) and even by Sri Krishna himself, appear in my heart !”


Kalindi tata kunja mandira gato yogindravad yat pada 
Jyotir dhyana parah sada japati yam premashru purno harih 
Kenapy adbhutam ullasad rati rasanandena sammohitah 
Sa radheti sada hridi sphuratu me vidya para dvy akshara 
(Radha Rasa Sudhanidhi 96)

"May the surprisingly fine, bliss giving, spiritually tastfull, endowed with the flavour of absolute transcendental shringara-love, wish fulfilling and charming two syllables of Radha’s name, which represent the highest supreme cognition and are muttered by Sri Hari (Krishna) who like a great yogi sits in a bower’s temple on the bank of the Yamuna, meditating on the effulgence of Shri Radha’s lotusfeet with streaming tears of love, be always revealed in my heart !


Devanam atha bhakta mukta suhridam atyanta duram ca yat 
premananda rasam maha sukhakaram coccaritam prematah 
premnakarnayate japaty atha muda gayaty athalisv ayam 
jalpaty ashrumukho haris tad amritam radheti me jivanam 
(Radha Rasa Sudhanidhi 97)

"The divine ambrosial transcendental name of Sri Radha, that remains difficult to utter by the demigods, the devotees in general, the liberated souls and Krishna’s friends, is even repeated and described with love by Hari (Krishna). He listens this name of Radha being sung to him by the sakhis and also chants it congegationally with them in ecstasy. This name of Radha that consists of the greatest spiritual love, gusto and bliss, is my very life.”


Radha namaiva karyam hy anudinam militam sadhanadhisa kotis 
Tyajya nirajya radha padakamala sudham sampumarthagra kotih 
Radha padabja lila bhuvi jayati sada’manda mandara kotih 
Sri radha kinkarinam luthati caranayor adbhuta siddhi kotih. 
(Radha Rasa Sudhanidhi 144)

"If one can simply get into the habit of daily chanting only the holy name of Radha, millions of best spiritual practises (exept the different limbs of bhakti sadhana) will be naturally depreciated and given up. Millions of greatest human goals of life just worship the transcendental nectar of Sri Radha ‘s lotusfeet, and are thus of no interest for those worshipping Them. There are Millions of wishyielding trees in Sri Radha’s playground (Vraja) which is always decorated by Her foot marks, and millions of wonderfull mystic perfections roll at the feet of Sri Radha’s manjaris, but are simply uncared for by them.”


Anulikhyanantan api sad aparadhan madhupatir 
Maha premavistas tava parama deyam vimrisyati 
Tavaikam sri radhe grinata iha namamrita rasam 
Mahimnah kah simam sprisatu tava dasyaika manasam 
(Radha Rasa Sudhanidhi 155)

"O Sri Radhe! Madhupati (Krishna) doesn’t take into consideration the innumerabile offenses commited to Saints by anyone who relished even once the sweetness of repeating your delicious holy name, but rather considers, overwhelmed with great ecstatic love, to bestow the highest gift of Your personal service to such a person. Then how can we ever think to understand the greatness of someone whose mind always dwells on Your service.”


Jaya jaya radha nama vrindavana yara dhama 
Krishna sukha vilasera nidhi 
Heno radha guna gana na shunilo mora kana 
Vanchita korilo more vidhi 
(Prema Bhakti Chandrika 108)

"Glory, glory to the holy name of Radha, that permanently dwells everywhere in Vrindavana, and that is the ocean of Krishna’s blissful transcendental pastimes. Due to my bad luck I didn’t hear the glorification of such a Radha.”


Krishna nama gane bhai, radhika charana pai 
Radha nama gane krishna chandra 
Sankshepe kohinu kotha, ghuchao monera byatha 
Duhkamaya anya katha dhanda. 
(Prema Bhakti Chandrika)

"O brother ! (Sister !) By singing Krishna’s name you will reach Radhika’s lotus feet, and by singing Radha’s name you will reach Krishna-chandra. Now that I have told you this in brief, follow this advice and you will be relieved of your mental ditress.


Srila Narottama Das Thakur Mahashaya

Radhika charana renu, bhushana koriya tanu 
Anayase pabe giridhari 
Radhika charanashraya, ye kore se mahashaya 
Tare mui yai bolihari. 
(Prema Bhakti Chandrika 107)

"Anyone who decorates his body with Radhika’footdust easily attains Giridhari. Anyone who takes shelter of Radhika’s lotusfeet is a commendable great soul of very fine spiritual taste and intelligence whom I repeatedly praise.”
