A dear friend who is of the Muslim faith asked me yesterday about Radha, Krishna and Rukmini. I put on my Google Hat and sent her a bunch of links.
In Hindu mythology these three divine characters have their unique places both individually and collectively. Krishna as all of us know, is looked upon as the supreme Godhead. Rukmini was his queen, while Radha his Divine Consort. The love they each had for their Lord has been food for thought, verse, and music for historians and spiritual aspirants alike.
This is my purely ignorant and humble excuse of an attempt to understand the most beautiful thing in this world, selflessness in love, and the way it is epitomized in in their divine play.
One His queen, His joy, His pride
One His love, always by His side.
One betrothed around the fire,
One besotted with spiritual desire.
One worshipped Him, as Her Lord Supreme
One He appeared for, in her every dream.
One remains as truth and a timeless fact of history
The other is the question and the answer to…
… True Love’s most divine mystery.
