Srimati Radhika as Gandhesvari

Srimati Radhika as Gandhesvari

Sri Krsna and the cowherd boys would smear aromatic (gandha) substances on their bodies while grazing the cows. It is said that Sri Krsna became intoxicated by the fragrance emanating from the body of Srimati Radhika, who was hiding nearby with Her girlfriends. Seeing Srimatiji, the flute slipped from His hands, His peacock feather crown fell at Her lotus feet, and He fainted. From then Srimati Radhika is also called as Gandhesvari.
