Śrī Rādhāṣṭamī 2006

anulikhyānantān api sad aparādhan madhupatir
mahā premāviṣṭas tava parama deyaṁ vimṛśyati
tavaikaṁ śrī rādhe gṛṇata iha nāmāmṛta rasaṁ
mahimnaḥ kaḥ sīmaṁ spṛśatu dāsyaika manasām

(Rādhārasa Sudhānidhi – 155)

"O Śrī Rādhe! Madhupati (Kṛṣṇa) cancels innumerable offenses of anyone who even once relishes the nectarean spiritual flavour of Your name, and in great ecstasy He considers what is the greatest gift He can give to such a person. Who can then imagine the glories of someone whose mind is fixed on becoming Your maidservant?"


  1. Dear Advaita das,

    Wishing you a blessed Radhastami.

    Yours in the service of Sri Radhe !

  2. Radhastami this year meant offering fruits - mango, nectarines, pineapple, brambles. Even an item of the abhishekha was fruit - cherry-yoghurt! The prasad of Giridhari's abhisekha is then offered to Guruvarga. Further items of the offering were cottage cheese, daal and rice.
