Vaikuntha appreciation: Krsna and Radharani joined together

    Posted on September 3, 2014

In the Vaikuntha world there is comparative devotional service. Just like Radharani and the gopis. They are on the same status, but the gopis know that "Radharani is the better worshiper than us." Therefore their only business is how to take Radharani and join with Krsna. This is Vaikuntha understanding. They are not envious that "Krsna loves Radharani so much," and they are envious. No, no, not at all. They want it that "Krsna loves Radharani so much, and Radharani loves..." They simply try to join Them. And they are happy, "Oh, Krsna and Radharani is now joined together." That is their happiness. This is Vaikuntha appreciation. Here in the material world, suppose there are competition. "Oh, this girl has got such a nice lover. Then let us break it." This is material. But Vaikuntha, there is everything. Everything, varieties. But that variety is concentrated on Krsna.
