Why do we Celebrate Radha Ashtami?

On the eve of Radha Ashtami, special prayers and pujas are performed at all of the temples of Sri Krishna, especially in the states of northern India. ISKCON temples and other locations around the nation mark the festival with joy and lavish celebrations. Extreme splendour and grandeur are used to commemorate the event in Barsana, the birthplace of Radharani, as well as in Mathura and Vrindavan. 

It is believed that Radhaji is a manifestation of the Goddess Lakshmi. She wanted to be with Sri Krishna on Janmashtami, therefore in order to symbolize her genuine love to Sri Krishna, she was born as Radha and appeared on earth. Radharani is regarded as the best illustration of eternal love and sincere devotion.

The love between Sri Krishna and Radha is regarded as the most sincere and holy love that has ever existed. Since they are both regarded as having one soul, Sri Krishna merges with Radharani. Goddess Lakshmi and Sri Vishnu shower their blessings onto the devotees who pray to and revere Radharani.

What is Radha Ashtami's origin story?

When it comes to Radharani's birth, there are two alternative stories that are often talked about.

Radharani's appearance:

King Vrishbhanu visited the River Yamuna's coast during the month of Bhadrapada on a night with a half-moon to take a bath. He discovered himself enveloped in a golden glow, the spirit of real and unadulterated love, while having a bath. The golden glow was emitting from a lotus flower. On its whorl was a little girl. After claiming the little daughter, King Vrishbhanu went back to the palace. Being childless, Queen Kirtida was overjoyed to meet the infant. They adopted Radharani and began taking the best care for her.

Birth of Radha: 

As per Padma Purana, Vrishbhanu discovered Radharani while sweeping the floor in preparation for a yajna. This is the second legend relating to the birth of Radharani. Sage 'Narada' informed Vrishbhanu and his wife Kritika that Radha is just the manifestation of Goddess Laxmi. She was regarded as their daughter by them both starting on that specific day.

Religious Relevance of Radha Ashtami

An opportune occasion to worship Lord Krishna and Radha is on Radha Ashtami. Devotees fast as well in order to fulfill their dreams. All requests are said to be granted if you worship Radha Rani on this day with a pure heart. The seeker experiences increased lifespan, good fortune, and wealth. Devotion to Sri Krishna is incomplete without the worship of Radha Rani. Repetition of the Radhe-Radhe mantra is said to bestow Sri Krishna's blessings on the devotee. The person obtains Vaikunth Lok by his grace, just as Sudama did.

In addition, Radha Ashtami, like Janmashtami, has a special significance of its own. On this day, a devotee can atone for all of their sins by fasting. The Radha Ashtami fast is observed by married women in an effort to attract the benefits of joy, progeny, and continuous good fortune.

What rituals are carried out on Radha Ashtami?

Devotees worship Radharani on the eve of Radha Ashtami. People who desire to ask Goddess Lakshmi for her favours sometimes fast for the day. After taking a holy bath, the idol of Radha is put at the midday hour, and it is then embellished with flowers and fresh clothing. Radharani receives bhog, dhoop, and shringar as offerings. All of the devotees participate in Radha aarti and receive prasad. Chanting the Radha Gayatri Mantra is a very popular activity during the Radha Ashtami celebration.
