i would just want to ask one question about radharani is that
what is the difference between radha and rukmani .why rukmani is not given the place of radharani?
and i just read a blog of geeta kakkar in that she has mentioned abut radha s husband and mother in law .... it made me more confused .........i dint understand their relationship.and even the court has passed some judgement based on their relationship which was hurting to me
m very confused
i dont have any right to ask these question but things were troubling me so i just asked.sorry if m hurting anybodys. feelings please forgive me as i m just learning.hare krsna
Hope some of the senior vaishnava's on this forum answer this question.Till then my 2 cents for you..
I have heard or read( dont recollect where) that all the wives or counterparts of Sri Krishna are expansions or partial expansions of Srimati Radharani.So that would explain why Rukmini is not given the place of Radharani.
Yes and I have also read about Radharani's husband and mother-in-law.I beleive the love between Sri Krishna and Radharani in their earthly pastimes is called parakiya bhava or paramour love.
Dont get confused or try to analyse on all these points- it is very difficult to understand the relation between Sri Krishna and Radharani and all the gopi's.We need high levels of purity to understand these pastimes without conditioning our mind with mundane relations as seen in our daily life-
Accordingly the pastimes of Sri Krishna with the gopis have been mentioned in the 10th canto of Srimad Bhagvatam.reading the first 9 canto's will purify our consciousness making us fit to read the 10th canto without offence. So beginners in Krishna Consciousness are advised not to read literature or discuss about the intimate past-times of the Supreme Lord with the Gopis.I have heard of very senior vaishnava's refusing to speak on these past-times quoting that they were unqualified to do so
Hope I have not confused you further :)
P.S: dnt intend to discourage anyone-I too am a neophyte and gathered this knowledge from various sources.I may be wrong and wld appreciate correction.
i think that for your confused ques.
radharani is love to Krishna,she is not live without him,in her Krishna concessions is full ,here rukmani is also do that but different. rukmani is wife of Krishna so live with her and love him, but there radharani not a wife of krishna but also \ pure love to Krishna more than wife(rukmani).
i m das but i say 2 u this ans by blessing of radha damodar and prabhupad if any mistake plz say me.

Radhaji is an eternal lover of Krishnaji whereas Rukmaniji is a wife of Krishnaji. No ones love can be compared with Radhaji as Her love is beyond any comparison.It can't be explained by words. It is stated in some books that Radhaji was married but that does not reduce Her love for Krishnaji. She secretly loved Krishnaji and Her family did not come to know of it. Hope it clears some of your doubts.
