The Wedding of Sri Radha-Krsna

Chapter 15: Verse 71-80



71.When one, suddenly frightened, calls out, “Ra!” I give him transcendental devotional service. When one adds the syllable “dha”, I, eager to hear his chanting, visit him.

72.-73.O Radha, they who present to Me the sixteen offerings and devotedly serve Me during their entire lifetime are very dear to Me, but one who chants the name “Radha” is even more dear.

74.-75.Brahma, Sesa, Siva, Yama, Nara-Narayana Rsi, Kapila, Ganesa, and Karttikeya are not as dear. Laksmi, Sarasvati, Durga, Savitri, Prakrti, and all the goddesses are not as dear.

76.To Me they are as dear as life, but You are more dear than life. They stay in different place, but You stay on My chest.

77.In My four-armed form of Narayana I hold Goddess Laksmi to My chest. In My original form of Krsna, I hold You to My chest always.

78.After speaking these words, Lord Krsna reclined on the beautiful couch. Her head humbly bowed, Radha spoke to Her Lord.

79.Sri Radha said: I know this. I remember everything. Lord, how could I forget? By the mercy of Your lotus feet I am all that You have said of Me.

80.O master of illusion, why do you put devotees like Me into illusion? Many devotees like Me are bewildered by Your maya potency.
