Title: Radha Krishna Combined

User: Swami Gaurangapada Date: 2007-03-12 17:44:36



Q.How are Radha and Krishna combined in the form of Gauranga? I was thinking is it ever really possible for two people to be combined at all.



Answer by Swami Gaurangapada: Why not? They are one anyway. They have become two for relishing pastimes. So why can't they join back again. Energy and Energetic. Radharani is Krishna's internal energy. So the sun rays and the sun are actually non-different.



I mean in the material world,man and woman get married have a baby and people say oh he looks like his mother and father, but still, the act of the parents having a baby, is not combining two spirits, just attracting new ones to another material body the parents bodies created.



Answer by Swami Gaurangapada: This is totally a mundane example which has no relevance at all with the topmost spiritual truth of Radha + Krishna = Gauranga. We cannot superimpose our material impressions on God. That is known as anthropomorphism. God is not made from the image of man but man has some of the images (not all) of God.



Whereas Radha Krishna combined in Lord Gauranga how can two people be combined in such a way, in terms of the science of the soul?



Answer by Swami Gaurangapada: They are not souls but the Supersoul and His Supreme Energy. So They are supremely independent to desire and manifest Themselves in the supremely magnanimous combined form of Lord Gauranga Mahaprabhu.
