The hallmarks of devotion for Lord Krishna are highlighted with a huge range of emotion- from passion and fervor to renunciation and surrender.
Lord Krishna is The Destroyer of Demons, Restorer of Dharma, Saviour of Devotees, A playful child and an eternal lover. In His multifarious forms, Lord Krishna resides in the hearts of millions of devotees.
The legend says that in his youth, Lord Krishna charmed all the Gopis of Vrindavan with his celestial flute. A call of the Supreme Divine, Lord Krishna's flute mesmerized the most beautiful Gopi of Vrindavan- Radha. Radha’s love for Krishna surpassed the conventional boundaries of love and reached the highest pinnacle of devotion. Her ceaseless devotion for Krishna compelled her to ignore her family honor and disregard the norms of society. Her passion for Krishna is symbolic of our soul’s intense longing for the ultimate unification with God.
Radha will always be worshipped as Lord Krishna's eternal consort and his greatest devotee. Her devotion is a source of inspiration for innumerable devotees. The relationship of Radha- Krishna comprised of poignant moments of intense love, longing, separation, pain and pleasure, creating an exemplary epic of adoration, which remains unparalleled to date. Their eternal love story forms the bedrock of romantic literature for generations of poets and exponents of literature through out the world. All lovers in the universe find some part of themselves reflected in the divine couple of Radha-Krishna.
It is said, that The Lord must always be approached through His devotees. Radha took one step towards Lord Krishna and he reciprocated by bestowing her with infinite love. The album "Radha Krishna Dhum" serves as a medium for devotees to pay tribute to the Immortal Couple- Radha & Krisha. The tranquil "Radha Krishna Dhun" when chanted/ heard with complete devotion, can make our lives virtuous and fruitful.
About the Tittle
When Krishna left Vrindavan, He stated that no matter where He resided physically, Radha would forever dwell in His heart and her name would always precede His. Hence one always chants "Radhe Krishna" never "Krishna Radhe". This Dhun is a melodious rendition in reverence of Lord Krishna; The possessor of supreme energy and Radha, who is His energy.
