The Wedding of Sri Radha-Krsna

Chapter 15: Verse 91-100



91.O Radha, I will not erase what fate has written. How can the demigod Brahma erase it?

92.I am the father of Brahma. What fate has written for Brahma and the demigods and for the lesser creatures also, is not to be broken.

93.At that moment, carrying a garland and a kamandalu in his hands and his four faces gently smiling, the demigod Brahma came before Lord Krsna.

94.His head humbly bowed, the hairs of his body erect, and tears in his eyes, Brahma bowed down before Lord Krsna and praised Him in many prayers.

95.Offering prayers and bowing down, Brahma approached Sri Krsna. Again bowing down with devotion, he then approached Sri Radha.

96.-97.He bowed his head before the lotus feet of Sri Radha, the mother of all. With great respect he washed Her feet with water from his kamandalu and then dried them with the towel of his hair. Then folding his hands, he spoke many prayers.

98.Sri Brahma said: O mother, by Lord Krsna’s mercy I can now see Your lotus feet, which are rarely seen by the people of the earth and other places.

99.In ancient times I performed austerities for sixty thousand years in Puskara-tirtha on the earth.

100.After that Lord Krsna, the giver of boons, came to offer a boon. “Ask for a boon”, He said, and I happily asked for what I long desired.
