Srila Prabhupada of ISKCON once said, “If we approach Krishna through Radharani, through Her mercy, then it become very easy. If Radharani recommends, 'This devotee is very nice', then Krishna immediately accepts (the devotee). Because it is recommended by Radharani, Krishna accepts. Therefore in Vrndavana you will find all the devotees, they are chanting more Radha’s name than Krishna’s. Wherever you go, you will find the devotees are addressing 'Jaya Radhe'. You still will find in Vrndavana. They are glorifying Radharani. They are more interested in worshipping Radharani. Because however fallen I may be, if somewhere or another I can please Radharani then it’s very easy for me to understand Krishna.”
On this day, in many places in the UP, the devotional songs in praise of the Divine Couple and their divine love are sung. Late evening, a feast is served with the famous ‘Radha Red’ – the delicious plum chutney which Radharani is believed to relish.
