Krishna Prema`s Food for Thought 2018 # 23 - Shri Radha-Bhajana Mahima

On this auspicious day of Srimati Radharani's appearance, I simply like to share this beautiful Bhajan written by Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakur with all of you. May we all be able to attract Srimati Radharani's causeless mercy - only by her grace, we may one day attain the Lotus feet of Sri Krishna.


Shri Radha-Bhajana Mahima

Glorification of Worship to Shri Radha

 

radha-bhajane yadi mati nahi bhela

krishna-bhajana taba akarana gela (1)

 

If the desire to serve Shrimati Radhika does not appear in my heart, then my worship of Krishna is simply useless.

 

atapa-rahita suraya nahi jani

radha-virahita madhava nahi mani (2)

 

Just as the sun cannot be perceived without sunlight, in the same way I do not recognize Madhava without Radha.

 

kevala madhava pujaye, so ajnani

radha-anadara karai abhimani (3)

 

Those who worship Madhava alone are ignorant; they simply neglect Shrimati Radhika out of their mundane pride.

 

kabahi nahi karabi takara sanga

citte icchasi yadi vraja-rasa-ranga (4)

 

Don’t ever associate with such persons if you desire the loving playfulness of vrajarasa to appear in your heart.

 

radhika-dasi yadi haya abhimana

shigrai milai taba gokula-kana (5)

 

If you develop pride in being Shrimati Radhika’s exclusive maidservant, then very quickly you will meet Gokula Kana.

 

brahma, shiva, narada, shruti, narayani

radhika-pada-raja pujaye mani (6)

 

Brahma, Shiva, Narada, the Shruti-cari rishis and Narayani honor and worship the dust of Shrimati Radhika’s lotus feet.

 

uma, rama, satya, shaci, candra, rukmini

radha avatara sabe - amnaya-vani (7)

 

Our revealed scriptures, declare that Uma, Rama, Satya, Shaci, Candravali and Rukmini are all Radha’s expansions.

 

hena radha-paricarya jakara dhana

bhakativinoda ta’ra magaye carana (8)

 

Bhaktivinoda is begging at the lotus feet of those whose wealth is the service of Shrimati Radharani.
