Srimati Radharani
Radha-Krishna Temple, London, England
"In the spiritual world there is love between Radha and Krishna. Krishna is always young -- nava-yauvana. And Radharani is always young, because She is Krishna's pleaure potency. Sri-Radhika madhavayor apara. Jaya Radha Madhava. We worship not Krishna alone but Krishna with His eternal consort, Srimati Radharani. There is eternal love between Radharani and Krishna. Therefore the Vedanta-sutra says, janmady asya yatah: The Absolute Truth is that from which everything emanates. In this world we find love between mother and son, love between wife and husband, love between master and servant, between friend and friend, between the master and the dog or the cat or the cow. But these are only reflections of the spiritual world. Krishna is also the good lover of the animals, the cows and calves. You have seen this in pictures of Krishna. So the propensity to love even the animal is there in the spiritual world. Otherwise, how it can be reflected? This world is simply a reflection. If in the reality there is nothing like that, how can it be reflected here? So everything is there in the spiritual world. But to understand that propensity to love, you have to practice Krishna consciousness."
(The Journey of Self-Discovery, Chapter 4)
