Radhanath Swami on Sambandha Jnana

The Madan Mohan deity is the sambandh deity. Sambandha means our relationship with Krishna. Lord Caitanya began His teachings to Sanatana Goswami with this simple principle – jivera swarupa hoya krishnera nitya dasa. We are not this body; we are the eternal soul. Qualitatively, we are non-different from Krishna, but quantitatively Krishna is the complete whole and we are just an infinitesimal part. […]

Radhanath Swami On How is Vrindavan revealed?

In Srimad Bhagavatam we find many stories of devotees being challenged with insurmountable difficulties. In the face of these challenges, neither did they give up their faith, nor did they give up their hope. The more difficult the challenge was, the deeper they surrendered and Krishna revealed Himself in incredible ways to each of these devotees. Lord Caitanya taught that bhakti means […]

Radhanath Swami On Tasting His own love

Srila Prabhupada and our acaryas teach us that Srimati Radharani is Madanamohan–mohini. In Sri Vrindavan dham where Lord Krishna is absolutely satisfying everyone’s desire, it is Sri Radha that absolutely satisfies all of Krishna’s desires. Krishna, who is the knower of everything, wanted to understand the nature of Sri Radha’s love. Krishna came into this world as Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, with the mahabhava and […]

Mesmerizing Flute

When Lord Krishna plays upon His flute mountains melt and water becomes solid. Hearing the sweet sound of His flute, the trees blossom, cows and calves would become stunned, weeping in ecstasy, embracing Krishna in their hearts. When the gopas hear the sound of the flute they celebrate by playing and wrestling with Krishna. Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu explained that when the sound of the flute […]
