The Transcendental lake of Radha Kunda the most secret meeting place where their lordships Sri Sri Radha and Krsna enjiyes intimate pastimes of divine love. Lost to the world for almost fifty centuries until the year 1516 when lord caitanya Mahaprabhu on his pilgrimage to Vraja Re-discovered this most sacred of all kundas.
Revered as the holiest of all holy places within the three worlds anyone who with firm faith simply sprinkles three drops of water from Radha Kunda upon their heads will achieve the highest level of divine love equal to that which Srimati Radharani has for her beloved sri Krsna.
I first visited the sacred lake of Radha-Kunda in 1975 just a month or so after I had first arrived in the Indian sub continent. Like so many of the Hare Krishna Devotees at that time. I was very eager to see all the holy places situated around Vraja. I can still remember those first impressions of Radha Kunda the narrow lanes the humble dwellings the sadhus chanting on beads the continous sounds of nama Kirtan as well as the very austere environment but most of all the sublime beauty an dtranquality of the sacred lakes.
In those early days we didn’t know so much about this most sacred of all sacred tirthas except that it was Srimati Radharani’s very own personal bathing place. As time went by Srula PRabhupada Gradully revealed more and more through his books as well as his lectures about this most extraordinary of all transcendental lakes. We pray that by his divine mercy those transcendental revelations will forever remain fixed within our hearts.
It is certainly not an easy task to actually comprehend the extreme sancity of Srimati Radharani’s sacred Kunda which the scriptures say is even dearer to Lord Sri Krsna than his very own life. I sincelry hope that through this book readers may be abel to catch a glimpse of the spiritual beauty and transcendentally exalted nature of Sri Radha Kunda the Holiest of all the holy places within the three worlds.
