Why Radha Rani Pretended to be Blind during her Appearance?

Respected Devotees, after a long gap today again I wish to write something, and this time it’s something about Radha Rani. I know that it’s nothing but her blessings upon me. However, before I start explaining the fact, let me inform you that Devi Kirtida & King Brishvanu were the parents of Srimati Radha Rani.

On the very next day of Radha Rani’s appearance day Devi Pournamasi reached the place of King Brishvanu. Upon seeing the baby girl (Radha Rani) she got delighted & told that this baby girl is none other than Rasheswari”. Devi Pournamasi also suggested them — “to take extreme care of this baby girl, because she is the origin of Goddess Laxmi,   she has appeared on this earth in order to perform some secret Leelas(divine play), she is the

ultimate goddess of this Earth & Goloka. The Gopis always worship Srimati Radha Rani. Lord Bramha, Shiva, Indra, Varuna & other demigods always pray to her Lotus feet. The way Lord Vishnu appears on this earth in order to perform his Leelas, similarly Radha Rani too has appeared this time as Vishnu’s companion in order to help him in performing his leelas. By having Darshan or through worshiping or by her mere touch all your wishes will be fulfilled. So, your duty is to take care of this girl in every possible way. After forecasting all these things Devi Pournamsi left the place, then after sometimes Kirtida & Brishvanu had a close look to their baby girl and they discovered her to be blind, nothing was getting visible to her, both of her eyes were completely closed. After noticing this fact everyone present in their house started crying. Though their daughter was blind, yet many people started visiting the place in order to have a glimpse of the beauty of the little girl.

After few days Nanda Maharaja & his wife Yashoda also visited the place along with their son Krishna. Upon seeing Nanda Maharaja, Brishvanu hugged him and both the couples greeted each other. Lord Krishna already understood that her beloved Radha Rani has already appeared at the place of Kirtida, so he planned to meet her; however, Radha Rani was sleeping then in her baby form. When Kirtida & Yashoda were busy in their conversation regarding Radha Rani’s blindness issue, then little Krishna started crawling from Mata Yashoda’s lap & reached to the room where Radha Rani was sleeping. Upon reaching there he boarded on the swing where Radha Rani was kept & touched both of her eyes.  And then instantly Radha Rani opened her eyes in order to have the darshan of Krishna. When Kirtida & Yashoda noticed that Radha Rani has opened her eyes, then they became very happy & there was mood of joy all over the place.

Radha Opening Eyes after Krishna’s Touch

One more explanation is available regarding this incident:
Mata Yashoda came at Kirtda’s place taking Krishna in her lap, when Yashoda saw the beautiful daughter of Kirtida, then she took Radha Rani in her lap keeping Krishna on the swing & started playing with her, however, to see that Krishna started crying. Then Mata Yashoda bent down & took Krishna also in her lap. It’s the common nature of babies that whenever they come close, they try to touch each other. Similarly, when Radha & Krishna came close to each other in Mata Yashoda’s lap, then Krishna touched Radha Rani. Upon getting the touch from her beloved, she opened her eyes & it was their very first meet on earth.

Why Radha Rani pretended to be blind?
In Golaka when Krishna was getting prepared for his Vrindavan leela, then he informed Radha Rani about the same and asked her to appear on earth in order to accompany him in performing those leelas. But, Radha Rani denied to go to earth as she will have to face many persons out their & she was fully dedicated to Krishna and always wanted to see him only in front of her eyes.  Then Krishna asserted her that on earth she will always see Krishna in front of her eyes, Radha Rani got agreed to a promise made by Krishna that he will be the very first person whom she will see first on earth. This is the only reason for which Radha Rani was pretending to be blind. 🙂

Interesting Spiritual Questions and Authentic Answers – Volume 1

Respected Devotees, please accept my humble obeisances, I am overwhelmed & thankful to all of you for the Warm Response that you all have shown towards my last article on Putrada Ekadashi. Thank You everyone from the core of my heart, I really mean it. 🙂 Before the next Ekadashi arrives, let me start a new trend of answering to Interesting Spiritual Questions in a very brief manner.

Purpose behind starting this new trend: I am sharing a true incident, few months back I went to buy Cow milk from a nearby Goshala, there I found a man who also came to buy milk with his little daughter, when the kid asked her father why he is buying the cow milk instead of buying packaged milk that are easily available in market, her father replied to her as– “after we take birth birth in this world, cow milk is the milk that is offered first to us….”. I felt very bad thinking the poor fate of that little soul who was being misguided by her father, I won’t expect any such daughter or father in future with such misleading information, so this new Question-Answer format is a small initiative from my part to clear the basic spiritual confusions. Let’s start it–

Set of 5 Spiritual Questions

Q 1: If God is so nice then why this World is so bad which is his own creation? Here we suffer from Pain, Death, we cry- what’s the significance of all these?

Ans: This world is like a Jail or Prison. This is called “Dukhalayam”, means place of Sufferings. According to Vedic scriptures, we have been sent to this prison as we turned our face from God & shown our interest in Earthly or Material enjoyment. Prisoners are sent to prison. The prison is meant for Punishment. So, if a prisoner considers the Govt as bad for creating Prison for him, then he is nothing but a fool. The creation of Prison will never be counted as offense for any king. However, once the punishment period is over, then there is opportunity to become free. After becoming free until and unless a person commits any offense, he will never be sent back to the prison. Wise men will never like to suffer repeatedly the pain of this material world, so they will choose the path of Devotion and serve Lord Krishna in order to return to his actual abode which is the Lotus feet of Shri Krishna.

Q 2: From Vedic scriptures we get to know that the “Good” & “Bad” both have been created by Krishna, then why he created the Bad or Evil part in this world?

Ans: Without the existence of 2 different natures Diversity can not be realized. Similarly, one can feel the quality of goodness in life only when he has experienced something bitter in past. No one would have given value to Light without the presence of Darkness. Since some of us are having the evil tendency in our heart, that’s the reason a separate arrangement has been made to live in the dark world. As few citizens commit crimes, so prison has been created by Government to keep them separate from the civilized society, but it does not mean that everyone is being asked to live in prison or being advised to do the bad things. Krishna has blessed us with “Intelligence” through which we can judge the difference between good & bad, so even after that if we are doing something bad, then it’s our mistake, Krishna is no way liable for this.

Q 3: The summary of Bhagwad Gita is– “Whatever happened, happened for the good; whatever is happening, is happening for the good; whatever will happen, will also happen for the good only. You need not have any regrets for the past. You need not to worry for the future. The present is happening…”. So, everything that we are doing, according to Bhagwad Gita those are good things only, isn’t it right?

Ans: One who has done Punya/auspicious work in past is enjoying the heavenly pleasure now, so this is good. One, who committed Sin in past, is now experiencing the pain like hell, this suffering is actually destroying the effect of his bad karma & post suffering he will get a fresh chance to rectify himself, so considering his Future this is obviously Good. One, who is continuously engaged in sinful activity, will definitely go to the Naraka or hell and will be punished. Ethically this is also good. It is written in Scriptures that one who is behaving like a beast even after getting the human body, in next life he will be getting the body of an animal. But if someone is engaged in Harinam Sankirtan, then after death he shall return to his original abode which is Vaikuntha dham. So, according to our Karma either we will be rewarded or be punished. And this overall system is really very Good.

Q 4: Why God has created this World?

Ans: Since we are the parts & parcels of Super Soul, so we have freedom in limited version.
Jivas can wish to engage themselves in sense gratification & enjoy this material world. In order to fulfil such wishes of Jivas this material world has been created by God. But the scope of engagement in Satsang or Sadhusang is also available here, because at the end when Jivas will realize that the true happiness is not available in this material world, then they can engage themselves in Satsang & return to the Spiritual world of Krishna. This is the reason God has created this world.

Q 5: Who has the majority in this Universe, Devotees or Non-Devotees?

Ans: The Whole Universe consists of Spiritual & Material worlds– the Material world is just 1/3rd of the Whole Universe & the rest 3/4th are the Vainkuntha loka which is known as Chid Jagat or Spiritual World. In Vaikuntha all are devotees. And, within the material world The upper planetary systems are meant for devotees only, though they are not the ones who are selfless devotees. On our Earth most of us are ruled by the effect of Kaliyuga. So, the number of devotees are greater in the Universe. 🙂

If you all are having any confusion with the terms of Universe, World, Upper Planetary systems then let me explain it in a very simple manner–
Upon creating this Universe, Lord Krishna filled half of the Universe with Water, he created his residence in that & manifested the 14 worlds in the other half. According to Srimad Bhagvatam: “The upper planetary systems are (1) Bhu, (2) Bhuvar, (3) Svar, (4) Mahar, (5) Janas, (6) Tapas and (7) Satya. The seven lower planetary systems are (1) Tala, (2) Atala, (3) Vitala, (4) Nitala, (5) Talatala, (6) Mahatala and (7) Sutala. The lower planets as a whole are called Patala. Among the upper planetary systems, Bhu, Bhuvar and Svar constitute Swargaloka, and the rest are called Martya(The Earth or Prithvi Loka). The entire universe is thus known as Triloka.”.
