श्री राधा तत्व चिंतन ( राधा जी कौन हैं ? )

 येयं राधा यश्च कृष्णो रसाब्धिर्देहश्चैकः क्रीड़नार्थं द्विधाभूत।
देहो यथा छायया शोभमानः ........।।
श्री राधिका जी और रससिन्धु श्रीकृष्ण का देह एक है। केवल लीला के लिए ही ये दो स्वरूपों में प्रकट है ,जैसे शरीर अपनी छाया से सुशोभित हो।

जैसे दूध और उसकी धवलता में , अग्नि और उसकी दाहिका शक्ति में ,भूमि और गन्ध में तथा जल और उसकी शीतलता में कोई भेद नहीं है ,वैसे ही तुम में और मुझ में कोई भेद नहीं है ,वैसे ही हम दोनों भी एक हैं। हम में कोई भेद नहीं है। मेरे बिना तुम निर्जीव हो और तुम्हारे बिना मैं अप्रकट हूँ। ..........भगवान श्रीकृष्ण 
In traditional  literature, Krishna is compared to the sun, and Radha to the sunshine. Both exist simultaneously, but one is coming from the other. Still, it is a misconception to say that the sun is prior to the sunshine- as soon as there is a sun, there is sunshine. More importantly, the sun has no meaning without sunshine, without heat and light. And heat and light would not exist without the sun. Thus, the sun and the sunshine co-exist, each equally important for the existence of the other. It may be said that they are simultaneously one and different.” Krishna therefore is described as the shaktiman, the energetic source whereas Radharani is the shakti or the energy. A familiarity with the Indian Vedic tradition allows one to note that the shaktiman is never addressed separately, but rather along with its shakti. For instance Krishna is always addressed as Radha-Krishna; likewise there is Lakshmi-Narayana and Sita-Rama. The calling of the shakti first is significant; it signifies that to approach the Lord in any of his forms, we must first go through their energies or more appropriately their consorts.
