Jaya Sri Radhe!
Sri Radha-pada-sevana: the highest nectar of our
life is the service of Srimati Radharani.
guide-booklet describing the most important places around the
sacred ponds of Sri Radhakund and Sri Syamakund, was written by 108 Sri
Krsna das Babaji Madrasi Baba and printed in 1986 on the 500th
Anniversary of the appearance of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu who revealed
the identity of these two divine lakes in 1514.
A personalized copy of this small guidebook was signed and
handed to Radha Kunda Das by Krsna das Babaji himself at Radhakund in
1990. Babaji's sole interest was to lovingly guide visitors through it
as he considered them specially fortunate souls for having come to the
most distinguished transcendental entity of Shrimati Radharani's lake.
The book includes a nice map
of the area.
The holy place known as Mathura is spiritually superior to Vaikuntha,
the transcendental world, because the Lord appeared there. Superior to
Mathura -- Puri is the transcendental forest of Vrndavana because of
Krsna's rasa-lila pastimes. And superior to the forest of Vrndavana is
Govardhana Hill, for it was raised by the divine hand of Sri Krsna and
was the site of His various loving pastimes. And, above all, the
superexcellent Sri Radha-kunda stands supreme, for it is overflooded
with the ambrosial nectarean prema of the Lord of Gokula, Sri Krsna.
Where, then, is that intelligent person who is unwilling to serve this
divine Radha-kunda, which is situated at the foot of Govardhana Hill? (Nectar
of Instruction, verse 9)
Srila Prabhupada says about Srimati Radharani:
"All glories to Radharani! She is so dear to Krsna. Everyone
is trying to love Krsna, but Krsna is trying to love Radha. Just
imagine how great She is? Krsna prema is so valuable, but Krsna is
after Radharani. She is so great. We have to offer Her our respects".
"Of all the young girls, Radha is the most beautiful. She
always dresses so nicely that Damodara is attracted by Her beauty. If
you go to Vrindavan you will find everyone worshiping Radharani. All
the devotees in Vrindavan worship Radharani. The pure devotees pray to
Radharani, 'O my worshipable Radharani! You are so full of mercy. I am
begging for Your mercy.'" (Lecture tape 09/18/69)
