Narada as a Gopi

Narada as a Gopi

After Narada heard the glories of gopi-bhava (the exalted moods of the gopis) from the mouth of Vrnda-devi, the presiding deity of Vrndavana, an intense desire to lovingly serve the Divine Couple Sri Radha-Krsna as a gopi in Their most elevated amorous pastimes arose in his heart. He received the gopala-mantra from Brahma, the Grandsire of the world, and began to perform meditation and worship in raga-marga, the path of spontaneous attachment, in the wake of the gopis.
After doing this for long time, Yogamaya Paurnamasi dipped Narada in Kusum-sarovara, by which he received the form of a gopi. Thereafter, he received the ekadasa-bhava (eleven features that constitute one's true identity) in the path of spontaneous attachment and became qualified to serve the Divine Couple.

  • Radhe Radhe,
    Yes, these posts increases our inclination towards RadheKrishnaji and I think that is most important.

    Take care.
  • Hare Krsna, I will not go into whether it is true or not. The tale increases our Krsna Consciousness that is what is important. Even Lord Shankar requested Mata Parvati to take him with her, and Mata Parvati obliged by taking lord Shankar in a disguise of a Gopi. You have chosen the Photo of a Gopi nicely. It adds to our feelings towards Krsna Consciousnes, that is what Shreela Prabhupada wanted and craved for.

    Hare Krishhna, Mataji.


    No doubt ginger is the best medicine describe in Ayurveda but if you take high dose of it than it will be prove harmful to health, similarly what you are posting is a very high does for a living entities like us who are full of lusty desires and so…

    Please, post something relevant to our practical life. Of course Krishna Katha is good but not from Gita Govind. It is to high and even none of us capacity to even respect it.

    Actually there is a fault in reader side too. Instead of reading from Srila Prabhupada’s books we are running after these books and not only that but by commenting on such blog, it encourage you to write more.
    Please, follow Srila Prabhupada’s way and not let other to get misdirected or misguide. Please encourage them to read Srila Prabhupad’s books only as he told many times that everything is there in his books. No need to read any things else then his books.

    Hare Krishna.

    Jai Srila Prabhupada Ki Jai!!!
