Shri Radha-Stotram

From a conversation between Brahma and Narada in the Brahmanda Purana

 

grihe radha vane radha radha prishthe purah sthita

yatra yatra sthita radha radhaivaradhyate maya (1)

 

Radha is in the home, Radha is in the forest, and She is both behind and before me.

I worship the all-pervading Radhaji, wherever She is present.

 

jihva radha shrutau radha radha netre hridi sthita

sarvanga-vyapini radha radhaivaradhyate maya (2)

 

Radha is on my tongue, Radha is in my ears, Radha is in my eyes and inside my heart.

 

I worship Radhaji, who is within the bodies of all.

puja radha japo radha radhika cabhivandane

smritau radha shiro radha radhaivaradhyate maya (3)

 

Radha is in my puja, Radha is in my mantra-japa, Radha is in my prayers, Radha

is in my memory, and Radha is in my head - I worship that Radhaji.

 

gane radha gune radha radhika bhojane gatau

ratrau radha diva radha radhaivaradhyate maya (4)

 

Whenever I sing, I sing about the qualities of Radha, everything I eat is Radha’s

prasada, wherever I go I always remember Radha, Radha is in the night, Radha is in

the day - I worship that Radhaji.

 

madhurye madhura radha mahattve radhika guruh

saundarye sundari radha radhaivaradhyate maya (5)

 

Radha is the sweetness within anything that is sweet; of anything that is important,

Radha is the most important; and of everything that is beautiful, Radha is the supreme

beauty - I worship that Radhaji.

 

radha rasa-sudha-sindhu radha saubhagya-manjari

radha vrajangana-mukhya radhaivaradhyate maya (6)

 

Radha is an ocean of nectarean rasa, Radha is the flower-bud of all good fortune,

 

Radha is the foremost gopi of Vraja - I worship that Radhaji.

radha padmanana padma padmodbhava-supujita

padme vivecita radha radhaivaradhyate maya (7)

 

Because Radha’s face is like a spotless lotus flower, She is known as Padma. She is

worshiped by Brahma who appeared on the lotus emanating from Vishnu’s navel, and

when She was first discovered by Her father, She was resting upon a lotus - I worship

that Radhaji.

 

radha krishnatmika nityam krishno radhatmako dhruvam

vrindavaneshvari radha radhaivaradhyate maya (8)

 

Radha is eternally immersed in Shri Krishna, Krishna is certainly always immersed in

Radha, and Radha is the queen of Vrindavana - I worship that Radhaji.

 

jihvagre radhika-nama netragre radhika-tanuh

karne ca radhika-kirtir manase radhika sada (9)

 

Radha’s name is on the tip of my tongue, Radha’s beautiful form is always before my

eyes, descriptions of Radha’s fame are always in my ears, and Radha always resides

in my mind.

 

krishnena pathitam stotram radhika-pritaye param

yah pathet prayato nityam radha-krishnantigo bhavet (10)

 

Whoever regularly recites with great care this prayer spoken by Shri Krishna will attain

loving service for the feet of Shri Radha-Krishna.

 

aradhita-manah krishno radharadhita-manasah

krishnakrishta-mana radha radha-krishneti yah pathet (11)

 

Shrimati Radhika worships Shri Krishna in Her heart and mind, and Krishna worships Shrimati

Radhika in His heart and mind; Shri Krishna attracts Radhika’s heart and mind, and

Radhika attracts Krishna’s heart and mind. Whoever lovingly recites this prayer will

become similarly attracted to the lotus feet of Shri Radha-Krishna.
