(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 29 August 2017, Durban, South Africa, Radhastami Festival Lecture)
Where in the world is love to be found? That love which has been glorified throughout the millennium – in songs, in poetry, in words, in exchanges between partners – that love, where is it to be found in this world? Where is that love in comparison to the degree of love that is found in the residents of Vrndavana? And where is that love found amongst the residents of Vrndavana? That love that completely and entirely takes over all existence, that love which rules the Supreme, where is that love found? This topmost love can be found in none other than, Srimati Radharani. Her love reaches levels which no one even in the spiritual world can understand. Even Krsna Himself cannot conceive Radharani’s love. A love so deep that even Krsna, the Supreme, becomes completely captured. Krsna is the all-attractive, He is Madana Mohana. But even Krsna, who can drive all mad, who can bewilder all minds, even that Krsna becomes bewildered by Madana Mohana Mohini, by Srimati Radharani. That is the nature of the loving exchanges between Srimati Radharani and Krsna.
