Devotional Songs - Pad Kirtan
on Shri Radha Madhuri
(Sweetness of Shri Radha's Personality)

This is from the collection of devotional songs or pad kirtan in "Prem Ras Madira" on Shri Radha or the sweetness of Shri Radha.

The loving pastimes or leelas that Shri Radha performed when She appeared on this earth 5,000 years ago are described in the writings of Rasik Saints.

These are direct glimpses into Her Divine and supremely innocent nature. Her love, grace and beauty are so great, that even Shri Krishna has not fully experienced them. This is an indication that she is the absolute supreme form of Divine love. There is no situation in the Divine world that is beyond Her, and everything is included within Her or originates from Her.

Yet, Her Divine nature is so simple, if any soul selflessly calls out to Her with tears of love, She immediately rushes to grace him.

Using these descriptions as a base for your devotional imagination, visualize the scene, actions, and feelings that these pads evoke. Click here for Hindi.
