Radha, Krishna and the Gopis

 Srimati Radhika fulfills all the desires of Lord Krishna. (Adi-lila 1, p. 286)

The gopis saw their beloved Krishna at Kuruksetra after a long separation. (Adi-lila 1, p. 313)

Among the many transcendental lovers of Krishna, the gopis [cowherd girls of Vrndavana] are the best, and among the gopis Srimati Radharani is the best. (Adi-lila 2, p. 15)

“O most beautiful friend, please accept the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who is standing before you full of transcendental bliss. The borders of His eyes roam from side to side, and His eyebrows move slowly like bumblebees on His lotuslike face. Standing with His right foot placed below the knee of His left leg, the middle of His body curved in three places, and His neck gracefully tilted to the side, He takes His flute to His pursed lips and moves His fingers upon it here and there.” (Antya-lila 1, p. 93)

“O beautiful-faced one, who is this creative person standing before us? With the sharp chisels of His loving glances, He is splitting the hard stones of many women’s devotion to their husbands. And with the luster of His body, surpassing the brilliance of countless emeralds, He is simultaneously constructing private meeting places for His pastimes.” (Antya-lila 1, p. 94)

“Do not expect honor, but offer all respect to others. Always chant the holy name of Lord Krsna, and within your mind render service to Radha and Krsna in Vrndavana.” (Antya-lila 2, p. 310)
