Glories of Srimati Radharani

satyam satyam punah satyam satyam eva punah punah
vina radha prasadena mat-prasado na vidyate

Shri Krishna says: “O Narada! I tell you truly truly, again truly, truly, again and again – without the mercy of Shrimati Radharani, one cannot attain my mercy.”

(Narada Purana)

yad amiya-mahima srirbhagavatyah kathayam pratipadam anubhutam capy alabdhvabhidheya
tad akhila-rasa-murti-syama-lilavalambam madhura-rasa-dhi-radha-padapadmam prapadye

She is the conclusion to be established in Bhagavatam by so many descriptions of events, so many stories of devotion etc. The highest aim of Bhagavatam is to establish Radha-dasyam , service to Radharani, and everything in Bhagavatam is preparatory towards that end. But still Her name is not mentioned anywhere in Bhagavatam . Everywhere in Srimad Bhagavatam every word is used only to prove Her noblest position, but still no name is expressively given there for Her. Krsna is akhila-rasamrta-murtih : He is the combination of all sorts of ecstasies, and the main support of that akhila-rasamrta-murtih is Srimati Radhika. She is the only support of that lila of Syama: the sole support, the fountain of madhura-rasa (Divine Consorthood). I surrender myself to the Holy Feet of that Srimati Radharani who is the only support, the gist, the all in all of the whole life of akhila- rasamrta-murtih : of He who consists in Himself of all sorts of high rasas, ecstasies. She is His only support and I surrender myself to Her Holy feet.
