The appearance of the Lord… This day is more than auspicious. The word ‘appearance’, at least in English, can sometimes mean something that is less real. Krishna’s appearance is however more real than anything. Let’s start with Krishna’s disappearance. In the Srimad-Bhagavatam, First Canto, we meet Krishna, but as He is just preparing to leave the world. Then we hear about devotees lamenting about it. After that another eight cantoes come, preparing for Krishna’s appearance. These eight cantoes narrate about the appearances of many avataras of the Lord.

Extend Śrīmatī Rādhārāṇī’s Compassion

In his prayer Śrī Rādhikā-stava, Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī describes the qualities of Śrīmatī Rādhārāṇī. We may say that the crucial point of the song is karuṇāṁ kuru mayi — please, be merciful. But it’s actually an active idea, kuru means to do. Do mercy. Do compassion. So, when we think of Śrīmatī Rādhārāṇī we think of Her compassion. When we think of Śrī Kṛṣṇa we may think of His opulences which are all very wonderful but we don’t think of them as very approachable. So, the approachability of Lord Kṛṣṇa is very much invested in Śrīmatī Rādhārāṇī. And that is why She is essential for us who are aspiring to approach Lord Kṛṣṇa.

While sitting on his throne or in his sitting room, while lying on his bed, or, indeed, while situated anywhere, and while eating, sleeping or walking, Kaṁsa saw only his enemy, the Supreme Lord, Hṛṣīkeśa. In other words, by thinking of his all-pervading enemy, Kaṁsa became unfavorably Kṛṣṇa conscious.Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 10.2.24
