(10) She is modest and gentle;

(11) She is always very merciful;

(12) She is transcendentally cunning;

(13) She knows how to dress nicely;

(14) She is always shy;

(15) She is always respectful;

(16) She is always patient;

(17) She is very grave;

(18) She is enjoyed by Krishna;

(19) She is always situated on the highest devotional platform;

(20) She is the abode of love of the residents of Gokula;

(21) She can give shelter to all kinds of devotees;

(22) She is always affectionate to superiors and inferiors;

(23) She is always obliged by the dealings of Her associates,

(24) She is the greatest amongst Krishna’s girl friends;

(25) She always keeps Krishna under Her control.


Krishna means ‘all attractive’, since He attracts every one to Him. But Srimati Radharani attracts even Krishna. Although Krishna says vedaham samatitani – “I know everything” – He fails to understand Radharani. Krishna is acyuta (inconceivable), but for Him Radharani is inconceivable. Radharani is so great. Krishna thought, “I am full. I am complete in every respect, but still I want to understand Radharani.” This question obliged Krishna to accept the propensities of Radharani to understand Himself. So five hundred years ago Krishna appeared as Caitanya Mahaprabhu, in the mood of Srimati Radharani and with Her golden complexion, as His own greatest devotee. Krishna did this to understand the depth of devotion of Srimati Radharani.
