Śrīmatī Rādhārāṇī’s Appearance Day

For the occasion of Śrīmatī Rādhārāṇī’s appearance day we present a wonderful lecture titled “Rādhā-Prema Makes Kṛṣṇa Mad”, given by Śrī Śrīmad Gour Govinda Swami Mahārāja on 19th March 1992 in Bhubaneswar, India.


Rādhā-Prema Makes Kṛṣṇa Mad

rādhikāra prema—guru, āmi—śiya naa
sadā āmā nānā ntye nācāya udbhaa

“The love of Rādhikā is My teacher, and I am Her dancing pupil. Her prema makes Me dance various novel dances.”(Cc, Ādi-līlā 4.121-124)

“You will find three topics in rādhā-prema. First is, rādhā-prema makes Kṛṣṇa mad. Rādhā-prema is so powerful that it makes Kṛṣṇa, who is almighty and all-powerful, mad. Kṛṣṇa is all-powerful, almighty and omnipotent, yet He becomes mad for rādhā-prema. So rādhā-prema is greater than Him.

Number two is that the pleasure and happiness derived from relishing the mellow of that love, rādhā-prema, is unknown to Kṛṣṇa. It is unknown to Him who is all-knowing. Therefore rādhā-prema is greater.

The third and last point is that there is a combination of two opposites in rādhā-prema. One after another we will discuss these three topics.”
