Devi Radha-Her origin at Goloka, birth on Earth & return and Puja Vidhan

Maharshi Narayana narrated to Narada Muni that Maha Deva explained to Devi Parvati about the ‘Praadurbhaava’ and ‘Mahatwa’ (Origin and Magnificence) of Devi Radha.

Maha Deva said:

Radhaa bhajeti Shri Krishnam sa cha taam cha parasparam, Ubhayoh Sarvasaamyam cha sadaa Santho vadanti cha/ (Devi Radha worships Shri Krishna and Shri Krishna worships Radha; they both are the ‘Araadhya’ and ‘Araadhaka’ (worship and the worshipped) respectively.The Great Learned Experts are convinced and strongly believed that both Radha and Krishna are unified as also the counterpart concepts.

  1. Radha emerged from the words of ‘Ra’ denoting ‘Raasa’ and ‘Dhaavan’ denoting attraction or magnetism for the beloved (Shri Krishna). 
  2. Another interpretation would be: Mere pronouncement of the ‘Shabda’ (word) ‘Raa’ would readily attract the unobtainable ‘Mukti’ and pronounciation of the word ‘Dhaa’ would instantly chase Shri Krishna’s sacred feet! 
  3. A simpler interpretation of the word ‘Raa’ denotes accomplishment and the word ‘Dha’means ‘Nirvana’ or ‘Moksha’. 
Maha Deva further explained that 

from the hair roots of Radha emerged innumerable ‘Gopis’ and from Shri Krishna’s ‘romakupas’ emerged as many ‘Gopas’. From the left side of Radha was materialised Devi Lakshmi who was the ‘Adhishtatri’or Sovereign of ‘Sashya’ or Crops; Griha Lakshmi of house-holds; the Four armed Maha Lakshmi, the wife of Vishnu of Vaikuntha and the Rajyalakshmi of Kingships. Radha herself resides in Krishna’s own chest and is the ‘Adhistatri’ of Krishna’s very existence,

but for the curse of Sudama, due to which she had to descend from Goloka to Bhuloka as the daughter of Vrishabhunu Gopa and his wife Kalaavati. When once Radha was angry with Krishna during their love-hate dialogue objecting to Krishna’s tolerance of Viraja Gopi’s open declaration of love for Krishna, Sudama Gopa intervened and Radha therefore cursed him to become an ‘Asura’ viz. Shankhachuda the wife of Tulasi, and Radha received Sudama’s return curse to become Radha on Earth. Vrishabhanu’s wife Kalaavati gave birth to Yoga Maya Vayu alias Radha. As Radha grew up, her parents decided to marry her off to Rayana,

but at the time of wedding, Maya Radha was materialised and the real Radha diappeared. In the name of security, the newly- born Krishna was transferred across the River Yamuna for the fear of King Kamsa from Mathura; Rayana was the brother of Devi Yashoda who was married to Maya Radha.

Real Radha appeared at Pushkar Tirtha since Brahma performed long time Tapasya for her and blessed him; after a little stint at Brindavan at Rasa leelas with the human Krishna, the Real Radha who made hazy appearances at Brindavana;s ‘rasaleelas’ with Krishna left forTirtha Yatras for hundred years left for Goloka, while meanwhile the human form of Shri Krishna lightened of the burden on Earth by killing several Danavas inhuman forms like Kamsa, Shishupala etc. Prajapati Drona was reborn as Nanda and Yashoda who had the good fortune of parenthood of Shri Krishna; Maharshi Kashyapa was born as Vasudeva and Aditi as Devaki, while Kalavati became Radha Devi’s mother and Vrishabhanu was Vasudama Gopa.
