Radha Ashtami

Posted on: August 30, 2011

Radha Ashtami

Birthday of Radha is celebrated as Radhaashtami throughout the
country and especially in the north, with full devotion and joy. Radha Ashtami
is observed after 15 days of Janmashtami, which is celebrated as the birthday of
Lord Krishna. Radharani’s birthday is the sacred eighth day of the month of
Bhadrapada (August-September). Sri Radha was born in Barsana, suburb of Mathura
and appeared as the daughter of Vrishabhanu and
Kirti.

Celebration
On the day of Radhaashtami, devotees are
allowed special sanctions which are not allowed generally. Like, Radharani’s
name is usually not chanted due to the possibility of committing faults towards
her. Neither people are allowed to enter into Radha Kunda, or Radharani’s Pond,
which is considered holy. On the day of Radhastami, people wait until midnight
in order to bathe there. People chant her names on the ”appearance day” or
birthday of Sri Radha. Radharani is believed to ”appear”, being an eternal
companion of Krishna, she does not take birth or die.

Radhastami- A
Belief

Sri Radha was older to Lord Krishna and it is believed that the
divine girl did not open her eyes until Sri Krishna was born. The relationship
of Sri Krishna and Radha surpasses human concepts and is spiritual in nature. It
is redundant to affirm that one may attain Krishna only through the Grace of
Radha.
