RADHASHTAMI CELEBRATIONS – 17th SEPTEMBER 2018 - MONDAY
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.
HAPPY KRISHNA JAYANTI Let us sing the exalted glories of Sri Krishna on the most auspicious day of his divine avatara:- राधाप्रियसुधारूपं राधाचरणकामुकम् । राधाप्रेमालयं देवं राधापतिं नमाम्यहम् ।। SRI RADHA KRUPA KATAKSHA STAVA RAJA STOTRAM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JGFMOC-gua4 SRI KRISHNA KRUPA KATAKSHA STAVA RAJA STOTRAM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N5JGqtIbrH8

Book – Radha: The Secret Goddess – Demystified – Interview with Author Dr. Kannan Srinivasan
By Abhilash Rajendran July 06, 2018
The book titled ‘Radha: The Secret Goddess – Demystified’, written by Dr. Kannan Srinivasan, (published in April 2018) is the journey into the world of Radha – the divine consort of Sri Krishna. To know more about the book, I did an interview with Author Dr. Kannan Srinivasan. You can learn more about the book through the interview.
1. Majority of Hindus today believe that Radha is a manifestation of Goddess Lakshmi. She is worshipped as a Goddess especially in Vrndavan and Mathura. Hindus are not bothered about what scholars think about her. She represents divine love and she is the consort of Sri Krishna. It is always Radha- Krishna for them. So is she really a secret Goddess to devout Hindus?
NEW BOOK TITLED " RADHA - THE SECRET GODDESS DEMYSTIFIED" https://www.amazon.com/Radha-Demystified-Dr-Kannan-Srinivasan/dp/1981758127
This book presents a holistic picture of Radha Tattvam duly substantiated by Vedas, Puranas, Tantras and Classical Literature. Radha is unique, divine, authentic, mystic, subtle, esoteric as well as mysterious. In spite of worshipping Radha for a long time, still it is very difficult for many to understand her in the proper perspective. She is undoubtedly the secret of all secrets. As there are a lot of misconceptions with reference to Radha even among the learned, this book is oriented towards dispelling all such doubts and wrong beliefs in this regard and establishing the true and unbiased position of Radha as embedded in the Vedic scriptures. This book reveals the exalted position that the scriptures affirm to Radha who as the most beloved consort of Krsna enables the devotees to reach the highest pinnacle of Krsna Prema. It presents deeper, broader as well as newer insights into Radha tattvam in a holistic manner answering several key questions about the authenticity, antiquity, role, relevance and importance of Radha.
