Names of Srimati Radharani - from Caitanya Caritamrita Adi Lila


TEXT 83
de vi krsnamayiprokta
radhika para-de vata
sarva-laksmimayi sarva-
kantih sanmohinipara

Translation
"The transcendental goddess Srimati Radharani is the direct counterpart of Lord Sri Krsna. She is the central figure for all the goddesses of fortune. She possesses all the attractiveness to attract the all-attractive Personality of Godhead. She is the primeval internal potency of the Lord."

Purport
This text is from the Brhad-gautamiya-tantra.

Text 84
`de vi' kahi dyotamana, parama sundari
kim va, krsna-puja-kridara vasati nagari

Translation
"Devi" means "resplendent and most beautiful." Or else it means "the lovely abode of the worship and love sports of Lord Krsna."

TEXT 85
krsnamayi--krsna yara bhitare
bahire
yanha yanha netra pade tanha krsna
sphure

Translation
"Krsnamayi" means "one whose within and without are Lord Krsna." She sees Lord Krsna wherever She casts Her glance.

TEXT 86
kimva, prema-rasamaya krsnera svarupa
tanra sakti tanra saha haya eka-rupa

Translation
Or, She is identical with Lord Krsna, for She embodies the mellows of love. The energy of Lord Krsna is identical with Him.

Purport
Krsnamayi has two different imports. First, a person who always thin ks of Krsna both within and without and who always remembers only Krsna, wherever he goes or whatever he sees, is called krsnamayi. Also, since Krsna's personality is full of love, His loving potency, Radharani, being nondifferent from Him, is called krsnamayi.

TEXT 87
krsna-vancha-purti-rupa kare aradhane
ataeva `radhika' nama purane vakhane

Translation
Her worship [aradhana] consists of fulfilling the desires of Lord Krsna. Therefore the Puranas call Her Radhika.

Purport
The name Radha is derived from the root word aradhana, which means "worship." The personality who excels all in worshiping Krsna may therefore be called Radhika, the greatest servitor.

TEXT 88
anayaradhito nunam
bhagavan harir isvarah
yan no vihaya govindah
prito yam anayad rahah

Translation
"Truly the Personality of Godhead has been worshiped by Her. Therefore Lord Govinda, being pleased, has brought Her to a lonely spot, leaving us all behind."

Purport
This text is from the Srimad-Bhagavatam (10.30.28).

TEXT 89
ataeva sarva-pujya, parama-de vata
sarva-palika, sarva jagatera mata

Translation
Therefore Radha is parama-devata, the supreme goddess, and She is worshipable for everyone. She is the protectress of all, and She is the mother of the entire universe.

TEXT 90
`sarva-laksmi'-sabda purve kariyachi vyakhyana
sarva-laksmi-ganera tinho hana adhisthana

Translation
I have already explained the meaning of "sarva-laksmi." Radha is the original source of all the goddesses of fortune.

TEXT 91
kim va, `sarva-laksmi,--krsnera
sad-vidha aisvarya
tanra adhisthatri
sakti--sarva-sakti-varya

Translation
Or "sarva-laksmi" indicates that She fully represents the six opulences of Krsna. Therefore She is the supreme energy of Lord Krsna.

TEXT 92
sarva-saundarya-kanti vaisaye yanhate
sarva-laksmi-ganera sobha haya yanha haite

Translation
The word "sarva-kanti" indicates that all beauty and luster rest in Her body. All the laksmis derive their beauty from Her.

TEXT 93
kimva `kanti'-sabde krsnera saba iccha kahe
krsnera sakala vancha radhatei rahe

Translation

"Kanti" may also mean "all the desires of Lord Krsna." All the desires of Lord Krsna rest in Srimati Radharani.

TEXT 94
radhika karena krsnera vanchita purana
`sarva-kanti'-sabdera ei artha vivarana

Translation
Srimati Radhika fulfills all the desires of Lord Krsna. This is the meaning of "sarva-kanti."

TEXT 95
jagat-mohana krsna, tanhara mohini
atae va samastera para thakurani

Translation
Lord Krsna enchants the world, but Sri Radha enchants even Him. Therefore She is the supreme goddess of all.

TEXT 96
radha--purna-sakti,
krsna--purna-saktiman
dui vastu bheda nai,
sastra-paramana

Translation
Sri Radha is the full power, and Lord Krsna is the possessor of full power. The two are not different, as evidenced by the revealed scriptures.
