Krishna wanted to experience the feeling and servitude mood of Srimati Radharani. Hence, He came in the form of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu 500 years in Mayapur (Near present-day Kolkata) as a hidden avatar (incarnation) of Himself to give the highest prayojana (goal) of madhurya prema bhakti in topmost vipralambha bhav to the fallen conditioned souls of Kali Yuga.
Mahaprabhu is gaur varna (golden complexioned). Internally, He carried Radha-Dashyam Bhav (or also known as Manjari Bhav) which might be just a mere two words for the majority, but for Rasika Vaishnavas, this Radha Dashyam Bhav is the soul and substance of their life. Mahaprabhu displayed the topmost vraja-prema-bhakti by remembering and crying for Krishna during His entire life.
It is impossible to understand Radha Tattva without taking shelter of Rasika Vaishnavs. And interestingly, for Kali Yuga, this is very very simple. Just by chanting Hare Krishna Mahamantra with full sincerity and surrender, every answer and right directions will manifest in the heart of the seeker with due course of time.
Our 24 hours should be spent thinking about Srimati Radharani. We should become Radhamayi (or in the thought of Radharani). Our every moment should become Radhamayi. It is very difficult to capture Radharani in mind even for a few seconds, especially at the conditioned state. It can be achieved only by kripa (mercy) of Rasika Vaishnavas and this kripa (mercy) can easily be invoked by chanting madhurya-mayi prema mantra (laden with prema) Hare Krishna Mahamantra:
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna
Krishsna Krishna Hare Hare
Hare Rama Hare Rama
Rama Rama Hare Hare
Chaitanya Mahaprabhu asked Ramananda Raya to tell Him about Radharani but Ramananda Raya had to stop mid-way as Mahaprabhu became so emotional that it seemed that He won’t be able to handle it and will leave His body. This is the pinnacle of love Mahaprabhu carried for His entire life.
The worship of Krishna without Radharani is impossible. By sincere chanting of nama or Hare Krishna Mahamantra, everything manifests beautifully in the heart of sincere seeker.
Jai Jai Shri Radhe!
