How to get attracted towards radha rani

hare Krishna!


some how, by Radha rani's mercy, I am somewhat attracted to lord krishna (even though I don't worship her, she is so merciful she showered her blessing upon me). but I have no attraction for radha rani! i really want to get attracted towards her so for that I thought if i listen more about her and read about her then I may get a bit attracted towards radha rani. so please help me by providing hari kathas and book ideas and other tips to get more attracted towards Radha Rani

Hare Krishna!

    • Hare Krishna Prabhu ji!

      Thank you for explaining so nicely prabhu ji!

      although, should I just worship radha rani because I want to get better in krishna bhakti? i had also heard the line that if radha rani tells lord krishna about how nice a devotee is, then he is compelled to give himself to the devotee. but I feel really guilty that I am only worshipping radha rani so that I can attain krishna prema because no matter how much I try to worship radha rani, I feel I have no attraction for radha prema! please help prabhu ji... I'm pretty sure devotees on this forum can help me overcome this flaw...

      Hare Krishna!

  • Hare Krishna mata ji,

    Your question needs some change.>> "somehow by the mercy of Shrmati Radharani I got attraction to Lord Krishna"  I don't know how I got Radharani's blessings as I never prayed to her but still she showers blessing on me. How is that so?"

    Radharani's is always like this she is Param Kripamayi, and she showers causeless mercy on us. We may not realize but the inherent  prema which you have within you is actually the love she is showing to Lord thru you. As we are all parts and parcel of Lord, inhernt prem which is dormant is evoked by radharani only. She glances on the jeeva to evoke bhakti for Lord. She wants everyone of us to love Lord, as we  all souls have some love in us,  all souls combined prema is Radharani's prema.  We are nothing but having tteeny tiny sparks of the total prema reservior that is Radharani. We just have some drop of prem out of the Immense reservior of Preme bhava.  Radha  is prem dhaara.. in hindi it means the flow. When Radha's love flows in jivas it becomes a dhara or flow of prem towards Krishna. all souls prema put together is Mahabhava which is represented by Radharani. Whatever we have love for krishna is all because of Her. When right time comes She only plants the seed of prema and bhakti in our hearts. 

    Moreover, mata ji u have radharani's deity also.., what did you think when you got radharani's deity to home that,you said >> when you go to school there is someone who can play with krishna so you got HER deity in that way isn't it.., So you without knowingly brought the ahlaadini shakti of Lord. That is HIS  pleasure source. Lord is most pleased by her company. She is represting all the jivas's prema and Krishna is Energetic because, She is the provider of that energy. So As soon as you bought Radharani's deity you got prema for Krishna without ur knowledge. That is Her mercy. You just pray to Her. She will keep Krishna happy. She will give you some prema in bhkisha to serve Lord. Its all because of Her you got Lord.

    In Vrindavan if you get a chance to visit, visit Radha kunda and take a dip into it., its waters are magical itseems and surely i heard you will catch the vibe of Radharani there in nidhivan and radha kund.

    One more thing is, If you get some Braj Rasik saints in Vrindavan who are rarely found but if you find find out from them who is Radharani and seek blessings from them.  

    Radharani' name is not mentioned in Srimad Bhagwatam because Shri Shukdev ji was pet parrot of Radharani and whenever he used to utter her name he used to go into trance and tears flowed from his eyes. He was not able to continue the katha so he just avoids taking the name and mentionining the pastimes of her. but just tells krishna loves a gopi who is most dearest to him a special gopi. Thats all. If you want to know radharani' and krishna's pastimes you have to read Garg samhita and Brahama vaivarta purana. There is menitons of her pastimes.

    In Vrindavan people say Radhe Radhe they rarely take the name of Krishna because they believe Krishna is pleased simply by hearing radha's name itself. But Radharani's doesn't like her name glorification... she loves to hear krishna's name. Whereever Krishna's name and pastimes are being told She is present there. "Hare" represents the pleasure potency of Lord Krishna and so only we are taking Hare name first seeking her mercy and asking her to give us some service of Krishna. 

    To understand Radharani's Mahabhava it is not so easy only if we have some special mercy of great rasik saints and goswami's like Rupa goswami ji one can easily understand Her Mahabhava thru Sri Chaitanaya Mahaprabhu's mercy.

    Chaitanaya Charitamrita has much information about Shree ji's pastimes with Lord Krishna.  One can read them but to understand and get the vibe of it a bit there too.

    I offer my respectful obeisances unto the lotus feet of my spiritual master and of all the other preceptors on the path of devotional service. I offer my respectful obeisances unto all the Vaishnavas and unto the six Gosvamis, including Srila Rupa Gosvami, Srila Sanatana Gosvami, Raghunatha dasa Gosvami, Jiva Gosvami,
    and their associates. I offer my respectful obeisances unto Advaita Acarya Prabhu, Sri Nityananda Prabhu, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, and all His devotees, headed by Srivasa Thakura. I then offer my respectful obeisances unto the lotus feet of Lord Krishna, Srimati Radharani, and all the gopis, headed by Lalita and Visakha.

    Seek blessings of the Vaishnavas they only can help. ^ The goswami's can lead us to Radharani.

    Hare Krishna.



    • Hare Krishna Mata ji!

      yes. your way of putting the question was definitely better. I'll try to make the change. mata ji, so If i'm attracted towards lord krishna, then I'm automatically attracted towards radha rani? I love my radha rani deity a lot, and I'm pretty sure that's enough considering how merciful radha rani is, she is happy with whatever we jivas try to give her. but I still feel that I'm not attracted towards radha rani's form or pastimes because when I think of lord Krishna, till the time I don't consciously try to think of radha rani, I can't think of her where as the thoughts of lord krishna usually come in my mind as if it's second nature (i think its because I have read more about him than radha rani that is why I have something meditate upon)

      Hare Krishna!

  • Sorry I will try to give proper answer. Krishna have many shakti or powers. One of which is Radharani (hladini-shakti) or intermal potency. In spiritual world it is called yoga-maya (radharani potency) in the material world it is called maha-maya (durga-devi (radharani extermal potency). So when you pray to Krishna you are esentially under yoga-maya (radharani potency). Any attraction you or we have is based on this basic principle. You have to understand who radharani actually is. She is non-different from Krishna but still appart, she is the pleasure potency of Lord Krishna. She gives pleasure to Krishna. So we are under radharani then we can give pleasure to Krishna. This is the basic principle

    • hare Krishna prabhu ji

      so does that mean we don't need to get attracted towards radha rani seperately?

      Hare Krishna!

      • IF you love Krishna you will love radharani, its as simple as that.

  • Your question makes absolutly no sence. How can you say you have attraction for krishna and say you dont for radha? Its radha who gives attraction for Krishna, She is BHAKTI personified.

    • I',m sorry prabhu ji... that is the way I felt and I didn't know how to put it in any other way

      Hare Krishna
