Who is Radha to Krishna…

 

 

 

As a part of regular Srimadh Bhaghavatam discussions and my questions bugging sessions to my friend, I recently asked him “We don’t find Srimati Radharani references in Srimadh Bhaghavatam, which is one of main books, Who is Radha and What is she to Sri Krishna? Friend? Girl Friend? Lover? Twin Flame? Is she a fictitious character? Why are they worshiped that much even after these many ages?? ”
Then my friend replied to me on the basis of understanding he has from his maternal grandpa that, Srimati Radharani and Krishna are the same . She is the feminine, emotional element of creator himself.Everyone in this cosmos goes to him, but when Sri Krishna himself want to look up to, when he wants to be comforted, he wanted to look up to someone from him and that part of him is none other than Srimati Radharani. She is not different, part of him created for him to look up to, she is his own soul. ”
And I was super amazed to see such beautiful painting by Shri Keshav Venkataraghavan which matched to this explanation of my friend.
Thank you Sir for sharing beautiful paintings of Sri Krishna everyday to the World. (https://www.facebook.com/keshav.keshav?hc_location=ufi)

Do share your understanding and your comments about the beautiful stories of Srimathi Radharani and Sri Krishna in the comments.

Vagarthaviva sampriktau vagarthah pratipattaye | Jagatah pitarau vande parvathiparameshwarau

Today I was randomly checking some posts in facebook and i suddenly became happily nostalgic seeing this sloka and the painting. Our Sanskrit class in graduation used to start with this Magical and Mystical Verse  . Our Sanskrit Mam, Mrs Bharathi used to make all of us recite this sloka before the starting of each class, it was quite fun and different because by the time we reached graduation we were out of the system of “reciting prayers in the classrooms”, however we used to like reciting this.

Oh, yeah, we do have the reference of this beautiful sloka in Sagarasangamam movie of Kamalhassan too.

Ok, here is this beautiful sloka, its meaning and the beautiful interpretation done by some gentleman already, i dont own the below content, however thought should post it here, do read it and feel joyful.

Vagarthaviva sampriktau vagarthah pratipattaye | Jagatah pitarau vande parvathiparameshwarau || – Raghuvamsha 1.1

Popular meaning: I pray parents of the world, Lord Shiva and Mother Parvathi, who are inseparable as speech and its meaning to gain knowledge of speech and its meaning.

In this sloka(verse), Kalidasa requests divine parents Lord Shiva and Mother Parvathi to teach him speech and its meaning. In other words, In this verse, we are humble and dependent like a small kid requesting helping hand of our parents to learn the spoken language. Now we have many questions raining:

Is that all? It sounds like a pretty straight forward Sanskrit verse. Isn’t right? What is magical and mystical about it?

The magic and beauty comes from the divine language, Sanskrit. It is all in – how we divide the words, which meaning we take for a word and ultimately how we rearrange and organize the verse. Any word in Sanskrit has several meanings and many shades of interpretations. So, this provides us opportunities to dig deeper to understand a verse to unlock its esoteric meaning in many different ways

Tension of Opposites

Image Courtesy Google Search

Have I told you about the tension of opposites? he says. The tension of opposites? Life is a series of pulls back and forth. You want to do one thing, but you are bound to do something else. Something hurts you, yet you know it shouldn’t.
You take certain things for granted, even when you know you should never take anything for granted.
A tension of opposites, like a pull on a rubber band. And most of us live somewhere in the middle.Sounds like a wrestling match, I say.
A wrestling match. He laughs. Yes, you could describe life that way.
So which side wins, I ask?
Which side wins? He smiles at me, the crinkled eyes, the crooked teeth.
Love wins. Love always wins.
