Sri Radha & Krishna – A Spiritual Boon From India’s Subconscious Mind

In the spiritual world of Nikunj vrindavan Sri Radha Rani and Nikunja are the ultimate beings. In this world they are the soul and the mind of all people who are close to them. In the Hindu pantheon, she is known as the queen of the divine feminine force, the incarnation of the supreme God Shiva. The ultimate reason and inspiration for existence of Radha Rani is that of transcending the limitations of birth and mortality.

Sri Radha Rani and her consort, Nikuna (lordship of gods) are the manifestation of the divine feminine force of Goddess Lakshmi (goddess) in human form. This is because the true meaning of being feminine lies in the feminine qualities of purity and intelligence. The Radha clan (a political kingdom ruled over by a king) was established by Lord Krishna. They established their rule over the entire region of Lanka by means of an iron rod, which they call “Bhima”.

Bhima is considered to be the authorised arena user of all Radha Rani and Nikunja deities. The Sri Lankan government had declared that Bhima is considered to be the chief lilo of all beings on earth. It is believed that the Rod of Sri Radha was gifted to Sri Lanka by Lord Krishna himself. The rod is a golden, inglorious and divine symbol of power and glory. Therefore, Sri Lankan citizens are bound to respect it.

However, the worship of Radha-prabha and Sri-Lanka has been prohibited in the mainland because of threats made by Islamic fundamentalists against the two female deities. In the southern part of India too, the worship of Radha-prabha and Sri-Lanka is highly sanctioned. The following verses from the Bhjaja play an important role in the recognition and veneration of Radha-prabha as the divine feminine deity. These words of praise and worship were written by Krishna Himself while He was residing in Himalayas. The following words of devotion and praise are from the epic Mahabharata:

Now all that you need to know is that Radha-prabha has several attributes and qualities and she is also known as the Mother Goddess. She is invariably portrayed as a handsome female deity seated with lots of children. However, in some parts of India such as in West Bengal, Kerala and Assam, the concept of Radha-prabha as the motherly deity is not adopted. Instead, the image of the Mother Goddess is that of Radha with a kid by her side or an icon of her holding a child. Some examples are:

The title of this article “Rani of Vide” is based on the mythological story of Radha and Subhadra. The goddesses were once married to the King of Heaven but later she left him and went into a cave (trench) on the earth. From there she emerged with an entourage of monkeys who proceeded to give birth to nine children. The name of one of these children was Rani. Later on, after she established herself as the supreme feminine deity of transcendental love, she decided to entrust her son Subhadra with the care of her children.
