Hare Krishna

 

Lord Krishna was married to Sri Rukmini Devi. Why do we always worship Sri Sri Radha Govinda instead of Sri Sri Rukmini Govinda?

 

Please forgive me for asking this question because I do not wish to offend Mother Radharani or Rukmini Devi.

 

And another question is, when did worship of Radha and Krishna start? Wasnt it always just Lord Krishna alone like in the form of Sri Nathji?

 

Your Servant,

Excellent question!!

Hare Krishna Prabhuji!

Please accept my humble obeisances!

All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

                             

                   In The Spiritual Sky,the topmost planet is Golaka Vrindavan where resides Sri Sri Vhajendranandana Krishna with His eternal companion Radharani,here Krishna is also known as Govinda and Gopala.Then there is another spiritual planet which is known as Mathura where Sri Sri Mathuresh Krishna resides.Then there is another planet which is known as Dwaraka where  Sri Sri Dwarakadhish Krishna resides with His Queens(Rukmini,Satyavama etc).The sweetness is the main difference between Sri Sri Vhajendranandana Krishna,Sri Sri Mathuresh Krishna and Sri Sri DwarakaDhish Krishna.Sri Sri Vhajendranandana Krishna is the most sweet and beautiful among the three and Sri Sri Radharani is His eternal companion,He is also known as Govinda,Gopala etc.We worship This Golokapati Sri Krishna(Sri Sri Vhajendranandana Krishna) with His eternal companion Srimati Radharani to serve them.Krishna that is Govinda do not leave Vraja for a single moment of time.Srimati Rukmini and other queens of Sri Dwarakadhish Krisha can not even estimate about the great fortune of Gopis of Vrindavan.So to achieve the top most devotional service in Gloloka Vrindavan,we worship  Sri Sri Radha Govinda.

   

   Dandavat Pranam!

      Dwaipayan.

Hare Krishna!!! The word, 'Radha' comes from the word Aradhana meaning Supreme worship. The word 'ra' comes from the word Pa'ra'bhakti meaning supreme love for God or Mahabhav. This mahabhava springs from Hladini shakti and Radharani is the embodiment of Hladini Shakti. So being the expansion of Krishna's pleasure giving potency, She is Krishna's chief consort. Rukmini devi and the rest 16,107 queens and all the other gopis in Vrindavan are expansions of Radharani. Being Krishna's chief consort, Radharani is worshipped along with Krishna. Also Radharani excels Rukmini devi in Her beauty and Her love for Krishna. Being Krishna's supreme devotee, Her place is always before Krishna. Radhe radhe!!

Hari bol!

Thank you for your replies!

What is the difference between chanting to Sri Krishna alone as compared to worship of the Divine couple?

Hare Krishna Prabhuji!

Please accept my humble obeisances!

All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

                           

            Chanting "Hare Krishna" Mahamantra is the topmost devotional service towards the Divine couple Sri Sri Radha Govinda and It is indifferent with the direct worship of Sri Sri Radha Govinda.Srila Bhaktivinod Thakur had said that more we chant,more we come to realize the truth.

Hare Krishna dear Devotees, please accept my humble obeisances! All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

There are different types of Devotees with different moods and relationship with Krishna.

For example, 8 Gopis - the best friends of Srimati Radharani, Gopis - the friends of those 8 Gopis...Manjaris who are direct servants of Srimati Radharani.

It says that sometimes Shirmati Radharani leaves even Her close 8 Gopi Friends in order to be with Krishna. But She lets Manjaris to be with Her because of that bhava which Manjaris feel is the top most thing.

And in Kali Age Lord Gouranga - Mad God (Mad for Himself in love) gave the top most service - the Manjari bhava.

Why Manjaris are so fortunate? Because of humility. They represent top most humility - selfless service to Shrimati Radharani not even to Krishna.

 please correct me if i did mistake!

---------------------------------

 to serve directly to Krishna do His Wives in Vaikuntha Planets and as was explained by Devotees here Vrindavan is the top most Planet.

Your servant,
