Radha (Sanskrit: राधा, IAST: Rādhā), also called Radhika, Radhe, Madhavi, Keshavi, Raseshwari, Kishori, Shyama and Radharani is a popular and revered goddess in Hinduism, especially in the Gaudiya Vaishnavism tradition and is worshipped as the goddess of love, tenderness, compassion and devotion. She is the eternal consort of Lord Krishna and resides with him in their eternal abode Goloka dham. She is the internal potency or Hladini Shakti (Blissful energy) of Krishna. According to scriptures, she was the chief of the milkmaids (brij gopis) who are known for their supreme devotion towards Krishna. She is the personification of complete devotion (para bhakti) unto Shri Krishna (Bhakti Devi) and is revered as the epitome of selfless love and service towards Krishna. She is also considered by some as the feminine form of Lord Krishna himself. Every year Radharani’s birthday is celebrated as Radhashtami.
She is also considered by some as a metaphor for the human spirit (aatma), her love and longing for Lord Krishna is theologically viewed as symbolic of the human quest for spiritual growth and union with the divine. She has inspired numerous literary works,and her Rasa lila dance with Krishna has inspired many types of performance arts.
She is also called Vrindavaneshwari (Queen of the Sri Vrindavan Dham) who appeared as the queen of milkmaids and queen of Vrindavan-Barsana. She is the supreme goddess in Vaishnavism. Rasik sants have mentioned her as a descension of the Supreme Goddess, the original form of Yogamaya and Hladini Shakti (Power of Divine Love) which is the main power of the Godhead Shri Krishna.
