- Srimati Radharani, who is the personification of pure love for Lord Krishna and who is the queen of Vrindavana, appeared as Gadadhara Pandita, who was very dear to Lord Caitanya.
148-150. Svarupa Damodara Gosvami has also confirmed that the goddess of fortune, who appeared in Vrindavana and was very dear to Lord Krishna, has now appeared as Gadadhara Pandita, who is filled with love for Caitanya Mahaprabhu.
Lalita Gopi always follows Srimati Radharani, and therefore she is known as Anuradha.
When Srimati Radharani appeared as Gadadhara Pandita, Lalita followed her, entering the body of Gadadhara Pandita.
Therefore, Gadadhara Pandita is the incarnation of both Srimati Radharani and Lalita Gopi.
This is described in the following statement of Caitanya Candrodaya Nataka.
- “Gadadhara, the best of the brahmanas, is the incarnation of both Srimati Radharani and Lalita Gopi.
These two are the transcendental potencies of the Lord, and since the Lord is in one sense not different from His potencies, it may be said that He is present wherever His potencies go.
For this reason it may be said that Lord Hari is also present in the body of Gadadhara Pandita.
Gadadhara is therefore the incarnation of three persons: Srimati Radharani, Lalita Gopi, and Lord Hari.”
 Anuradha means “Radha’s follower”
