One who does not carefully worship the lotus feet of Srimati Radhika, which are the abode of everything good;
One who does not take shelter in the divine land of Vrindavana, which is decorated with the beautiful lotus flower named Radha;
One who has not associate with Radhika’s devotees, who are very wise and deeply devoted to Radha;
How will such a person ever experience the bliss of bathing in the ocean of Shyamasundara’s sublime mellows?
Srimati Radhika is the exemplary teacher of the brilliant mellows of conjugal love, ujjvala-raser acharya. One should discuss the pure love, shuddha-prema, between Radha and Madhava.
He who tightly holds the lotus feet of Radha with great care obtains the lotus feet of Krishna, which are like priceless jewels.
Without taking shelter of Radha’s lotus feet of Radha, one will never personally meet Bhagavan Sri Krishna. The Vedas state that Krishna is the property of the maidservants of Sri Radha.
Abandon your wealth, followers, wife, sons, friends, karma and jnana, so that you can be absorbed in the sweet service Radha’s lotus feet, radha-pada madhura seva.
(Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura Gitavalli)
Jai Jai Sri Radhe!
