Happy Belated Radhaashtami.
Srimathi Radharani, the pleasure potency of Sri Krishna is expert in serving Krishna.
Her speciality is of course the art of cooking. She is so expert that she never cooks a dish more than once for Krishna.
Although Krishna is all attractive He cannot resist the allure of Radha.
Despite being the master of all Krishna is forever puzzled over Radha’s undying love for Him.
In his quest to understand Radha better, Krishna even assumed the form of the golden avatar, Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu about 500 years ago.
Adopting the mood and bodily complexion of Radharani, Chaitanya appeared in Mayapur, West Bengal, in the guise of a devotee madly in love with Krishna.
Chaitanya introduced the Mahamantra, Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna; Krishna, Krishna, Hare, Hare; Hare Rama, Hare Rama; Rama, Rama Hare, Hare to the masses.
He chanted and danced in the streets of India and taught the world about Krishna Prema Bhakthi.
