Relationship Between Lord Krishna And Radha
The mythological love story of Lord Krishna and Radha and their relationship is adored by every lover. Devotees still visit Mathura and Vrindavan and chant “Radhe Krishna” in one breath as they are one soul.
There are many stories depicted by several philosophies about how they met? Why did they not marry despite being so much in love.
According to mythology, Lord Krishna is the avatar of Lord Vishnu, he was born to kill the evil king “Kansa”.
Everyone is aware of the truth that Lord Krishna was married to Rukhmini and Satyabhama. Even though he loved Radha and she loved him too.
There are people who ask why Lord Krishna never married his love Radha?
Well, according to a philosophy, Lord Krishna and Radha were not separate, they both were one as Lord Krishna represented Parmatma whereas Radha was Jeevatma and her selflessness was beyond everything as she unified with Lord Krishna and surrendered herself.
But some studies say that they both were apart because of social divide and hence they never got married.
Another theory depicts that the lovers were separated by Krishna’s devotee Shridhama. Shridhama believed that devotion is greater than love and he did not want people to chant her name before Lord Krishna.
So, he cursed Radha that she’ll forget everything about Krishna and every memory with Lord Krishna and after that he sent Radha to patal Lok. Simultaneously Lord Brahma asked Lord Krishna to appear as the ninth avatar of Lord Vishnu on earth.
Another study said that Lord Krishna believed that there’s a difference between Love and Marriage. According to the study, Krishna believed that Marriage is an agreement whereas on the other hand, love is a selfless emotion, you don’t have any restriction or agreement in love.
He further believed that the Love story of Radha and Krishna is a goal for everyone, on the other hand marriage is materialistic.
Moreover, the love of Radha was so beyond that she started taking Krishna as god and loved him as his devotee. It is believed that Radha’s love was the greatest devotion of emotion expressed by any human being to God.
Another study says that Lord Krishna was known for his naughtiness and when he was 5 years old, he went out with his father in graze cattle and he created a thunderstorm, and his father didn’t get how to take care of Lord Krishna and cattle simultaneously, so his father left him with a lovely damsel who lived in the neighbourhood.
After his father left, he came into his avatar and asked the damsel about heaven, the time they both spent here. The lovely damsel was none other than his forever love Radha and they both reunified on earth.
According to mythology, Lord Krishna and his flute were never apart and so, flute is an important part in his love story too and Krishna’s flute had a hypnotic impact on Radha.
