Served by even Lord Krsna

No endeavor can be pleasing to Lord Krsna if it doesn’t attempt to please Srimati Radharani. I once joked with a devotee friend- “Krsna is our GBC…and Srimati Radharani is His GBC.” It took me many years to understand even a fraction of how special Srimati Radharani’s position is, both in Krsna’s heart, and in our lineage. Service to Her is the goal of our sadhakas, and from the prayers of the six Goswamis, it is clear that even Lord Krsna serves Her Lotus feet… along with Lord Brahma, Lakshmi, and other celestials…

So here are the last two verses of the famous Radha Stuti, and a picture from the Gaudiya Math in Peru (courtesy Swami B. A. Paramadvaiti). The second-to-last verse of the Radha stuti is the pranam mantra for Srimati Radharani…

“O Srimati Radharani, I offer my respects to You whose bodily complexion is like molten gold. O Goddess, You are the queen of Vrindavana. You are the daughter of King Vrishabhanu, and are very dear to Lord Krishna.”

“O Srimati Radharani, You are the exalted form of mahabhava, therefore You are the most dear to Krishna. O Goddess, You alone are able to bestow pure love for the Supreme Lord; therefore I offer my humble obeisances unto You.”
