Radha & Krishna

Radha & Krishna

The Hindu deities Radha and Krishna declare their love for one another in a verdant rite of spring, depicted in an anonymous Indian illustration from the late 18th century.

The story of the love between the divine Krishna and the cowherder, milkmaid or gopi, Radha, his devotee, is among the most celebrated of all Hindu myths. Such was their love, the couple ultimately became one, unifying the masculine and feminine forms of god: Krishna representing its primeval form, while Radha embodied traditional ‘female’ traits such as spiritual bliss, the eternal nature of god and human consciousness of god’s existence. Krishna, it is claimed, enchants the world, while Radha enchants him.
