Radha was married

Oh! What a discovery I made... Just generally thinking about how mean Krishna was, who loved Radha so dearly but still did not have the courage to make her his life partner, I started thinking if Radha ever married at all. After a few googling results I stumbled onto this spectacular discovery that Radha was a married woman, it was an extra-marital affair that she had with Krishna. I am amazed with this discovery, hard to digest, but makes logical sense so can be accepted. I knew that some of the gopis who would romance with Krishna were married, but to find out that Radha was married too and we still celebrate their romance with so much of élan was a great discovery for me.

I will not be writing for a few weeks, have exams coming up and look at the thoughts I get during exam times. Conjectures, epics I feel like doing these things more than plainly sitting down to study course stuff probably. May God save me!

Yes. Radha was a married woman and so were all the gopis Krishna used to dance around with. But good observation i must say. Not everyone knows about this.
But there is more to it. Be it Radha.. be it any other Gopi, Krishna was their belief that love was eternal. That it is more about unconditional faith and trust.. and not lust.
It is said that Krishna has 16,000 wives. To put the same in another way, Krishna was the 'Bharta' of 16,000 women. 'Bharta'- the one who reigns, the one who takes care. You know how? After Mahabharata, He vowed to take care of about 16,000 women who had lost their husbands/fathers/brothers to the humungous battle...
Baap re.. too much ki kasam! kya arbit gyaan diya na?... :)
All the best for your exams dear!

Thank you Ashen :-)

Radha was married , ibn7 also telecasted a show on it. In spirituality there are different types of yoga, like raj yoga, kriya yoga, prem yoga. Stupid people does not understand what do u mean by divine love. Krishna was having 16000 wives :) everything here is Krishna. Every single thing, living beings get dissolved into HIM.

KrRahul said...

Love between Radha and Krishna is unique. We can hardly reach or see or feel the purity of love between the two souls, that these two had...

You can read more to know about the spiritual and devotional aspects of this love. I read that Radha knew that she won''t be able to marry Krishna, and yet she waited for Krishna''s one look in gokul... Their love was beyond selfishness or any of what we feel for other people and hence it is called divine.

Krishna is also a God whom we can love in many forms. As son, as lover, as friend, anyway... He came to spread the message of love and peace in this world and will keep on inspiring generations for the same... I too love him... Its often something that we can''t explain to someone else.. There is no point in trying to make others feel the same.

Your comment about extra-mar.. affair was so naive :) We can laugh over that.

Think about the great saints who have spent their lives worshiping and loving Krishna. Meera was one. Krishna will continue to give support and save all of us if we love him from pure heart...

Have nice time!

Niedhie said...

@Vinod: I find it very hard to understand the spirituality behind Krishna.

@Rahul: Yes, I will not shy away from accepting that I am naive when it comes to understanding God/religion. I have huge amount of faith on God, but don't really understand who He is. All I understand is that He talks to me, listens to me, guides me, and helps me stay calm in difficult situations. He is an invisible human for me, and so I got a very generic and humane term like extra-marital affair to associate with Krishna-Radha relationship.

Stumbled on your blog googling for the same question , "Was Radha married?".

Kamala Das writes:

At sunset, on the river ban, Krishna
Loved her for the last time and left...
That night in her husband’s arms, Radha felt
So dead that he asked, What is wrong,
Do you mind my kisses, love? And she said,
No, not at all, but thought, What is
It to the corpse if the maggots nip?

satendra said...

It's an amazing discovery.. I too googled a lot to find what happened with Radha. And it is such a bliss to understand/ know it all. We human beings have never been able to understand 'LOve' and we mostly try to search it in married relationship. I think, the God himself have tried explaning us what a divine & selfless love is like. I Love you Lord Krishna.

satendra said...

I read somewhere... the 16000 wives and all the Gopis that Lord Krishna romanced with were actually saints and holy people who pleased Lord Vishnu by their Karma & Meditation and asked companionship with 'The God almighty'.
They all deserved to have borned with Lord almighty and experiencing the blessings.

Nirangal.... said...

I was also googling abt radha..Words by Kamala das was great..but wht abt tht husband...he is victim of Radha krishana eternal love.

Ritz said...

yeah on googling i found the name to be Abhimanyu..the son of smn called Jatila

the other version gives the name as Chandrasen..

cud smn throw light over this.. .

priyanka said...

i really donot understand the whole concept . only thing i understand is they are two beautiful souls and love is the main bondage between them

Swanand Bhusari said...

to make you feel that you are special, There is no better thing in this world than having such a person in your life, and thers is no worse loss than losing it at a point. I wish everyone finds a radha n she only becomes rukmini for them.

its urvazeee said...

Was Radha pretending to love her husband then?

Swanand Bhusari said...

That to i guess only Radha will be able to answer!!! hehehe... But u luv your husband urvazeee, rather love somebody n then make him your husband!

@ Niddhi& @ Priyanka -
OMG !!! WHO ARE WE TO Understand /JUDGE THE SUPREME POWER ?...
you need to become as pure and as innocent and simple as god - even then will not be able to understand him.

When your good deeds/karma becomes so good that god blesses you with the most divine gift - his love - that is when you will feel it, but yet understanding him is impossible.
So as human beings, do good deeds unselfishly, and offer them to him - best bet.


@ most others - During the conversation in vrandavan when lord krishna begs the gopis to go back to their husbands - their answer is:
our bodies can go back to our husbands but our soul is yours, we lived all these births doing good deeds, scarifying everything and loving our husbands faithfully and praying to god(you-krishna). We did all this to be able to get to you, And now when we have finally found you - our protector- our husband/father/mother/son/friend who is forever. - our mind is no longer ours, it has automatically become yours. we have no control over it.
( vedic science- mind is an organ which cannot become one with anything else but the divine- its like sugar and milk. where as our love (earthly) with our husbands, parents, children is like stone and water. No matter how much we love them, we can never become one- that does not mean do not love them, it only shows the difference between divine love and earthly love.

As a result of all our good deeds( like being a one mans women - is why you have come to become one with us - (said the gopis to krishna) - why are you now asking us to go back to the dirt and sand (body of our husbands) it means nothing to us.
This might be difficult for most of us to understand - so do not try to, just believe the fact that love with god does not involve bodies, only mind and soul - which when truly loves mingles/merges with the divine. (as with the gopis)
And the day you feel and realize the above in your mind, is when you know krishna has blessed you..

And once you feel his love, nohing, nothing at all, including all the happiness & money & fame & torture & sadness & even power in the world will matter at all.
- All you will want is to become insane and crazy in love with krishna, Like meerabai(no kingdom, no poison mattered to her)
that is when you will get 0.00001% understanding of how, how,

how CHASTISE THE CHARACTER OF THE GOPIS AND SPECIALLY SHRI RADHAJI'S IS.

If krishna is the body - radha is the soul.
they did not cheat each other. but were born to help us cheat this worldly maya - to see reality.

we are all mere servants at (HIS)radhaji's feet.THEY ARE ONE.
never trY to understand his lila ( unselfish deeds) with our own kriya ( selfish deeds) and mind.
JUST BELIEVE THAT HE LOVES YOU THE MOST AND - my guess would be????? for someone who loves you so so much.- Give back some love...
Love him...

After reading the above, if you understood anything, try to do at least one good deed everyday, even if it means going out of your way.

Incestor said...

Extra martial affair, is something very inadequate to use, When Krishna used to be in Gokul, When he left for Mathura he was teenager, so was Radha, So she was not married at that time, they were childhood friend. She was married after Krishan left so it cannot be called extra-martial affair.

Anonymous said...

just because we are talking abt radha n krishna, justification on their relationship is being given by calling it love of the soul etc... love is great and it is always by the soul... it is the soul that feels love and the body that helps it in experiencing love...
Being married to someone doesn't mean u have to love him / her... marriage laws can only bind the body not the soul...
Love is a far more beautiful destination... radha was married and was 9 yrs elder to krishna... she fell in love with him and there's nothing wrong in falling in love or experiencing it...
The only thing is we humans have a long way to go to accept the truth about our life and our reality...

its a story... a good story... nevertheless, only a story....

dont take it too seriously...

everything about radha is so blank... i mean ...i have heard so many versions on what happened to her:

1. she was cursed by one of krishna´s closest friends to not being abble to see him for a 100 years;

2. she was bumped by her husbund that considered her crazy ´cause she was maddly in love with krishna

3. before krishna left they met and he gave her the flute back.... and then yars after when radha´s last moments were coming they met again and kishna ji played a melody whth that flute and then she finally rested in peace

i think that their story is amazing...yet sorowfull cause they couldn´t be together.... i speciallu feel bad for radha

Just shows what nonsense this whole concept of hinduism is. Asking my parents & they have no clue & as the pandits they don't know either.
Imagine your father bringing home another woman? Acceptable? Is that the sort of person we should worship?
Believe in an immortal, formless god. Not cartoon characters

raazpaal said...

all comments are nonsense. Radha and krishna are childhood frnds. radha was not married at all. the main problem arises due to the picture we see in our daily life as radha and krishna are adult but they are not. and its not necessary to be married with a childhood frnd.

mr priceless said...

well it was after Krishna left
radhaji was married to someone and krishna to rukhmini. so yes she was married but people on this blog have misconception that she was married when she used to meet Krishna. Well religious text say they were cursed by a saint to be separated and Krishna knew this would happen. It is also believed that Lakshmi mata wife of lord vishnu took birth as Radha and rukhmini.As radha she got separated from krishna to fulfill that Saint's curse and as Rukhmini to be Krishna wife

Yad said...

We can feel proud that..India is not a conservative country ever...as most of us here and abroad make us to believe. WE here worship the Lord Krishna with her SAKHI (Girl Friend) openly and proudly...even in most cases by merely chanting Radhe Radhe it is persumed Krisna has been remembered

Radha and Krishna is a story of divine chemistry.

listen you all shri radha was not a gopi. she is the supreme soul and lord krsna's maharani .......she is the very first wife of lord krishna......she is the beauty of lord krishna ........ when they were very young they got married aur jisne unki shaadi karvai thi woh khud brahma theeee (the creater of universe). radharani was sakshat mahalaxmi. please think before you speak or right i have read sri mad bhagwat puran. SHE WAS WORSHIPPED BY LORD KRISHNA AND ALWAYS REMAINS IN HIS HEART... WHEN LORD KRISHNA LEAVES THIS EARTH HE WENT BACK TO HIS BAIKUNTH WITH RADHA RANI..........
AND THE PERSON WHO SENT LORD KRISHNA TO MATHURA AND TO CARRY ON HIS LEELA WAS NOONE BUT RADHARANI.......... THEY ARE DIVINE "AUR AGAR HUM LOG SHRI RADHA MADHAV KE PREM KO SAMAJ GAYE HOTE TOH HUM YAHA NAHI BAIKUNTH MEIN HOTEEEE........

AUR YEH ANAY KOI NAHI HAI EK IMAGERY CHARACHTER HAI .ITS A MYTH.....
RADHARANI WAS A GREAT FLUTE AND VEENA PLAYER ... SHE WAS SPIRITUAL INTELLIGENT AND HER ONLY MOTIVE WAS TO KEEP KRISHNA HAPPY ......
SHE IS THE ONE WHO INCARNATED HERSELF AS LAXMI ,SITA,RUKMINI,SATYABHAMA ,KALINDI JAMMVATI.....AND ALL OTHER 8 PATRANIS OF KRISHNA..... SHE IS THE MOTHER OF UNIVERSE. JUST LIKE LOD KRISHNA IS VISHNU , RAM ,NARSINGH, JAGANNATH, ......

Dharmendra Kumar said...

I have another story. As Lord Krishna was born to complete a lot of Boons. In the previous birth Radha, She was a great follower of lord vishnu. When Lord Vishnu asked her for a Boon, She asked him to accept her as his wife. He refused, because He already had Goddess Laxmi as Wife. But when "radha" insisted, Lord Vishnu Said - "You cannot be my wife , but, In my Krishna Birth, you will be my love.. you will be example of true love, The Future, will take our names togather... Your name will be first followed by mine". Radha was ready for it... Lord Vishnu Said - "So It Be..."

Shamik said...

Radha was married and yet he loved krishna. Interesting isn't it? Such saucy extra marital affair is obviously a treat to cherish by the masses isn't it? Even one Hindi song of today has the line...'tum karo to Raas leela aur mein karoo to character dheela'....such subtle understanding of Raasleela!!!
But do we all know what was the age of Krishna when he left Brindavan?? well my ignorant friends.. he was just 11 years old. Now answer this yourselves what is the conotation of love for a child of 11? Surely not as Hellenic as we consider it to be. At this age a boy is drawn towards beauty and not physical cravings. Look back all of you when you are eleven...how did you feel at that age? what was your connotation of love at that age? I am sure most of you have felt it for maybe a teacher while you were in school...someone who seem to understand a bit extra than others...remember the feeling....go back to Radha Krishna now.....maybe you will find anew meaning of love...which is nothing but the joy of giving and expecting nothing back in return....regards shamik email@shamik.in

Hare Krishna ,
Krishna and Radhaare non separable , they are one .
She is the pleasure potency of Sri Krishna .
Regarding their marriage in Material world they are not married in this Kalpa ,
But were married in Kalp before this one , Brahma Ji himself did their marriage .

Yes!! Radha rani was married to a man other then Lord Krishna.. Their love was eternal so there is no sense to compare love in temporal sense.

Krishna is not married to any Gopi. Radha is the most important Gopi. All Gopis, uncounted in numbers, loves Krishna in eternal manner.

I would like to correct all most every one who commented regarding number of wives of lord Krishna! It's not 16,000.

Krishna was married to only 8 women. 16000 was pat-rani i.e. demi-wives (Krishna gave them his safeguard).

Sajith said...

This is what my understanding is:

God Sri Krishna had a charismatic personality which attracts infinite followers, devotees and lovers. Even today you will find unmarried/married girls/ladies who are in love with Sri Krishna.

The story of Radha have not been mentioned in many puranas since that was not significant. What Lord Sri Krishna taught us was with his life, Karma. He was the ultimate Guru. The lakshya of his life was to teach the world the ultimate way to Brahma/Nirvana through Karma. How could he stop himself from going out to the world and do his Karma, for what he was born for. His life teaches us how we all should act/react through Karma, for Karma.

In Srimad Bhagavad Gita, Sri Krishna teaches Arjuna about Karma, Vikarma and Akarma (Chapter 4 - Jnjana Karma Sannyasa Yoga). The Karma that we do through Body, Mind & Soul (in simple words). For details refer Srimad Bhagavad Gita. Most of us know/talk about Karma only. But once you understand Karma, Vikarma and Akarma you will understand what I am talking about.

In order to fulfill the lakshya he was born for, he left Vrindavan. And I am sure that he must have briefed Radha about his lakshya, why he was born, and why he is going away from her. The same way as he taught Warrior Arjuna through Srimad Bhagavad Gita when Arjuna was confused and helpless. But since here it was Radha, who was a female and who does not have significance in the male dominated world (even more fiercely at that time), nobody wrote or gave importance to what he taught her and how he convinced her. Again, Lord Sri Krishna was the best teacher and he definitely could pass on the wisdom to Radha and convince her about his birth lakshya.

What happened to Radha afterwards is mystery. But I would like to believe that she continued her life to fulfill her Karma (whatever it was) and Sri Krishna was always with her in her heart. Thus meeting her love Lord Sri Krishna throughout and beyond her life.

My understanding about Sri Krishna's marriage to 16008 wives:

Marrying to more than one female, in that era, was not a crime, especially to Kings and Prabhu's.

Now about the number 16000: In those times, widows were supposed to burn themselves (Sathi) along with their Husbands in their funerals. Or else they were considered to be the lowest animals in male dominated the human society. By marrying them, Lord Sri Krishna gave them dignity and a new life in the society. I believe the same is true in the case of Prophet Mohammed (PBUH).

Hi Friends
I heard about Radha and krishna's love in movies, as a Muslim girl I don't have much knowledge about them but the only thing I will say people can love each other any where any time with out any restrictions, There is never a time or place for true love. It happens accidentally, in a heartbeat, in a single flashing, throbbing moment.

balbir singh said...

LORD KRISHNA & RADHA WERE GOOD FRIENDS FROM CHILDHOOD,WHEN HE WAS JUST A SHEPERD BOY [LIKE JESUS]. LATER HE BECAME KING & PROMISED THAT ALL THE WOMEN WHO BECAME WIDOWS AFTER THE WARS ARE TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF BY MEN WOULD BE LIKE HIS WIVES IN HIS KINGDOM & NO MAN THEREFORE COULD TROUBLE THEM AS THEY WOULD APPEAL TO HIM FOR PROTECTIONW. HENCE IT IS SAID AS A MISNOMER THAT KRISHNA HAD THOUSANDS OF GOPI,S AS HIS WIVES. AS TO RADHA WHETHER SHE WAS MARRIED OR NOT IS IMMATERIAL, BUT SHE WAS IN LOVE WITH HIM & HE TOO LIKED HER A LOT AS EVEN TODAY MARRIED WOMEN SOMETIMES FALL IN LOVE WITH SOMEONE OUTSIDE THE MARRIAGE. SUCH IS LIFE. BUT FOR INTENTIONAL GOSSIP MONGERS WHAT IS BETTER THAN SPECULATION.

@ Niedhie
You GOOGLED this "great Discovery" of your's??? ..LOL :-D

Google it for some more time and u will find various other stories like this.
Its surprising how easily people believe whatever they want to.Get to ISKCON or some temple and ask someone who has thee right knowledge.

A senior swamy explained me the "Radha-Krisha" relation and u will be surprised and later laugh at all other misunderstandings we had.Just as all other naive comments here.

All the best for ur exam.Study those well without misunderstanding it :)

Krishna was less than 7 years old when he left Vrindavan to go to Mathura after receiving invitation from Kans for wrestling.

What do you think what kind of love would be there between 10 year old krishna and radha ? It definitely can not be sexual.

There is vested interest people have to defame Hindu lord and culture. people use this tactics to make Hindus (who do not have detailed knowledge of their dharma) ashamed of their faith and then convert them to Islam. Do not be part of this controversy if you love your nation.

Having unflinching faith is the only way to reach supreme divine.
There has been serious effort made on this blog to shake faith of hindus. Hindus, wake up and learn more about your spirituality from Scriptures and not from such novice blog. Read Bhagwad geeta (available for almost free at any ISKCON temple near you) and bhagwatam to find out more.

READ THIS VERY INTERESTING & REAL STORY ABOUT KRISHNA’s MARRIAGE:
Krishna's activities should not be seen LIKE OURS in a material angle! They are all in Spritual platform to satisfy His devotees!
A year back. A nun in Warsaw, Poland, filed a case against ISKCON (International Society for Krishna Consciousness). The case came up in court.
The nun remarked that ISKCON was spreading its activities and gaining followers in Poland. She wanted ISKCON to be banned because its followers were glorifying a character called 'Krishna', "who had loose morals," having married to 16,000 women called Gopikas.
The ISKCON lawer argued to the Judge: "Please ask the nun to repeat the oath she took when she was ordained as a nun."
The Judge asked the nun to recite the oath loudly. She did not.
The ISKCON lawyer asked whether he could read out the oath for the nun.
"Go ahead", said the judge.
The oath said in effect that "She (the nun) is married to Jesus Christ". The ISKCON lawyer said, "Your Lordship! Lord Krishna is alleged to have 'married' 16,000 women only. There are more than a million nuns who assert that they are married to Jesus Christ. Between the two, ie, Krishna and Jesus Christ, who has more wives?"
The case was dismissed and the ISKCON people won it!
This incident shows that people need religious tolerance in a society!
NOTE: JESUS CHRIST AND ALL OTHER GREAT SOULS ARE RESPECTABLE AS THEY FOUGHT FOR SPREADING THE MESSAGE OF GOD. THIS INCIDENT MUST BE TAKEN TO SHOW THAT THERE SHOULD BE NO HATRED BETWEEN VARIOUS SPRITUAL PRACTICES AND ALL SHOULD LIVE IN HARMONY!
