Radharani’s Beauty


Radharani’s Beauty

A lecture given by Śrī Śrīmad Gour Govinda Swami Mahārāja
on Caitanya-caritāmṛta, Ādi-līlā 4.259, 27 April 1989, in Bhubaneswar, India.

“When Rādhā and Kṛṣṇa descended in this world 5,000 years ago and were manifesting Their transcendental loving pastimes in Vṛndāvana, then They were also often playing in the water of the Yamunā River, jala-kṛdā. So the Yamunā is very, very fortunate.
However, here Raghunātha dāsa Gosvāmī says something else. He says that Rādhārāṇī takes Her bath in nectar. What type of nectar? Kāruṇyāmṛta, tāruṇyāmṛta, and lāvaṇyāmṛta. Kārunya means ‘mercy’. Mercy is like nectar. She takes Her bath in that nectar, kārunyāmṛta, before noon. Tāruṇyāmṛta is also like nectar. Taru means ‘youth’. And Rādhārāṇī takes Her bath in that nectar at noon. Then lāvaṇyāmṛta – lāvaṇya means ‘beauty’. That is also like nectar and She takes Her bath in that nectar in the afternoon. This has a very, very deep meaning, and it is very difficult to understand.”

    pamho prabhus agtACBSP agtSGGM,SRI-JI the supreme and absolute beauty can be explain only by rasa rasika bhakta like all the maha rati of our brahma gaudiya sampradaya,this nectar has become more sweet because of the great mahajana of this super auspicious kali yuga because of the divine appearance of SRI GAURANGA MAHAPRABHU,all these great souls are still living in the sound vibration as SRILA BHAKTIVINODA THAKUR mentioned in HIS vani seva instructions and to meditate in that sound vibration of the vani seva of the great mahajana one become transcendentally advanced like HDG ACBSP HDG SGGM etc…we are glad to hear the beauty of SRI-JI by a exalted mahajana by birth like SGGM,actually we never get fed up and more we listen and much more we want to listen from the mahajanas who are blissful as SRI KRSNA BHAGAVAT created us. thank you for posting this sublime article by a great soul like SGGM agtys ys acsd haribol
