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.

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. 🙂
