“Radha is the essence of all natural beauty and the essence of all rasa. Radhika is the only essence of happiness. Kishori is the essence of compassion. Bhanu-tanya is the essence of all sweet and effulgent beautiful forms. Vaidagdhi Radha is the essence of divine cleverness, and Gaurangi is the essence of loving amorous sports. My mind is completely absorbed in the quintessence of all essences known as Radha.” (Radha-rasa-sudha-nidhi 26)
A Verse Meditation:
Look at a beautiful painting of Sri Radha;
Read the verse above with full concentration;
Pray to Radhika for the memory power or shakti to remember it;
Close your eyes;
Chant japa while immersing your mind and heart in this divine illumination.
Jai Jai Sri Radhe!
