Shri Gopala-Tapani Upanishad
Chapter One [ Translated by Kusakratha Dasa ] text 42
Commentary by Shrila Baladeva Vidyabhushana: The goddess of fortune here is Shrimati Radharani, who is described in the Purusa-bodhini Upanisad. "Radhika and Chandravali always remain at Lord Krishna's side. Laksmi, Durga, and the Lord's other potencies are expansions of Shri Radhika." The Gautamiya Tantra also explains: The transcendental goddess Shrimati Radharani is the direct counterpart of Lord Shri Krishna. She is the central figure for the goddess of fortune. She possesses all the attractiveness to attract the all-attractive Personality of Godhead. She is the primeval internal potency of the Lord.
