We all have heard Stories and pastimes of Radharani. We know much she loved Lord Krishna and how she dedicated her whole life to him. This blog will talk about Sri Radharani in detail. Keep reading. 

Who is Srimati Radharani?

Sri Radha (or Radha as most people affectionately call her Radha) has a unique position: she is the controller of Krishna (no one can control the supreme controller) because she is pure love and devotion, service, and is surrender to him. 

There are many Stories on Radharani that describe how beautiful and loving she was. She was known for her power of love and sacrifice. 

Even the most accomplished saints usually find it challenging to approach Lord Krishna directly. As the Bhagavad Gita proves in section 7.3, Lord Krishna said among thousands of people. She can recommend that the most depraved soul be set free from under his compassionate feet. 

Fortunately for us, Srimati Radharani makes this very easy, for her infinite compassion for the worst sinners helps to ease this path. Hence it is sometimes said that Rodroni is more merciful than the Lord himself. 

When Krishna appeared as Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu in that Kali era, Lord Krishna’s everlasting desire to understand Rada’s love for him was fulfilled. He is Krishna. That person, but in the mood of Radha Rani. 

Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu has always served Lord Krishna with the spirit of service of Radha, thus embodying his love for divinity. He also preached the most critical saying.
