PATH SHOWN BY RADHA (ராதை காட்டும் பாதை)

ராதை காட்டும் பாதை
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7c1UT_IPZGI
கீதையின் காரணன்
கோதையின் காதலன்
ராதையின் கோவலன்
பேதையின் காவலன்.
வெண்ணையனைய  மனம்
பெண்ணை கவரும் மணம்
எண்ணிலடங்கா குணம்
கண்ணனை நம்பு தினம்.
நெஞ்சத்தைக்  கிள்ளித்தா
வஞ்சமில்லாது அள்ளித்தா
பஞ்சமில்லா பக்தி கொள்
பிரபஞ்சத்தை வெற்றி கொள்.
காமவேள் நற்தாதை
காலம் வெல்லும் காதை
காதல் பிரேமை பாதை
காணோம் பிறவி உபாதை.
ராதையே கண்ணன் தான்
ராதையின் மலர்மன்னன் தான்

SRI RADHASHTAMI CELEBRATIONS – 29th AUGUST 2017 - TUESDAY

Sri  Radha is none other than Sri Mahalakshmi, who out of great compassion, facilitates the individual Self to get the divine grace of the Supreme Bhagavan Sri Krishna, the glorious Yogesvara. According to the Scriptures, the best way to approach Sri Krishna is through first obtaining the boundless grace of Sri Radha. Even a grave sinner gets redemption through her ceaseless divine grace and becomes purified to serve the lotus feet of Sri Radhakrishna.  Let us not miss this opportunity to offer our humble and sincere prayers to the ever fresh and fragrant queen of Vrndavana. On this most auspicious Radhashtami  day, may Sri Radha shower Her divine blessings on all. Fasting on the most sacrosanct Radhshtami day yields the fruit of fasting on thousands of Ekadasi days.
