Radha-Krishna are the male and female aspects of God known as the divine couple. Radha embodies the totality of love for Krishna. Thus She is known as the personification of Bhakti, or loving devotion to God. The sum of Krishna's energies is Radha, His eternal consort. Like the sun and sunshine, Krishna and Radha are one.
"Radharani is a tenderhearted feminine counterpart of the supreme whole, resembling the perfectional stage of the worldly feminine nature. Therefore, the mercy of Radharani is available very readily to the sincere devotees, and once She recommends such a devotee to Lord Krishna, the Lord at once accepts the devotee's admittance into His association." — Srila Prabhupada, Bhagavatam 2.3.23.
Please come along everyone to celebrate the appearance day of Srimati Radharani in Dublin. Also, if you would like to bring any offering for Radharani, please do.
