Chapter 12

Radha and Krishna

Was it not he once in Brindavan? Woods divine to our yearning, Memorable always! 0 flowers, 0 delight on the tree-tops burning, Grasses his herds have grazed and crushed by his feet in the dancing, Yamuna flowing with song, through the greenness always advancing, Unforgotten remind; for his flute with its sweetness ensnaring Sounds in our ears in the night and our souls of their teguments baring Hales us out naked and absolute, out to his woodlands eternal, Out to his moonlit dances, his dalliance sweet and supernal. . . . Even an hour of the soul can unveil the Unborn, the Everlasting, Gaze on its mighty Companion; the load of mortality casting, Mind hushes stilled in eternity; waves of the Infinite wander Thrilling body and soul and its endless felicity squander; All world-sorrow is finished, the cry of the parting is over; Ecstasy laughs in our veins, in our heart is the heart of the Lover. SRI AUROBINDO



Radha is the personification of the absolute love for the Divine, total and integral in all parts of the being from the highest spiritual to the physical, bringing the absolute self-giving and total consecration of all the being and calling down into the body and the most material nature the supreme Ananda. SRI AUROBINDO Krishna is ... the divine Flute-player,. . . the immanent and universal Divine who is the supreme power of attraction; and the soul, the psychic personality, [is] Radha, who answers to the call of the Flute-player. THE MOTHER RADHA'S PRAYER O Thou whom at first sight I knew for the lord of my being and my God, receive my offering. Thine are all my thoughts, all my emotions, all the sentiments of my heart, all my sensations, all the movements of my life, each cell of my body, each drop of my blood. I am absolutely and altogether Thine, Thine without reserve. What Thou wilt of me, that I shall be. Whether Thou choosest for me life or death, happiness or sorrow, pleasure or suffering, all that comes to me from Thee will be welcome. Each one of Thy gifts will be always for me a gift divine bringing with it the supreme Felicity. THE MOTHER

Aspiring beyond heaven to Krishna's feet. I have seen the beauty of immortal eyes, And heard the passion of the Lover's flute, And known a deathless ecstasy's surprise And sorrow in my heart for ever mute. Nearer and nearer now the music draws, Life shudders with a strange felicity; All Nature is a wide enamoured pause Hoping her lord to touch, to clasp, to be. For this one moment lived the ages past; The world now throbs fulfilled in me at last. SRI AUROBINDO 886 Krishna's light in the Overmind All music is only the sound of His laughter, All beauty the smile of His passionate bliss; 886 Krishna's light in the Overmind Our lives are His heart-beats, our rapture the bridal The Overmind ready to be divinised. Of Radha and Krishna, our love is their kiss. Salvia farinacea. Lavender blue SRI AUROBINDO

KRISHNA Krishna is the Eternal's Personality of Ananda; because of him all creation is possible, because of his play, because of his delight, because of his sweetness. SRI AUROBINDO Krishna as a godhead is the Lord of Ananda, Love and Bhakti; as an incarnation, he manifests the union of wisdom (Janna) and works and leads the earth-evolution through this towards union with the Divine by Ananda, Love and Bhakti. SRI AUROBINDO The boy with the flute is Sri Krishna, the Lord descended into the world-play from the divine Ananda; his flute is the music of the call which seeks to transform the lower ignorant play of mortal life and bring into it and establish in its place the Lila of his divine Ananda. SRI AUROBINDO Krishna is the immanent Divine, the Divine Presence in everyone and everything. He is also, sovereignly, the aspect of the Supreme's Delight and Love; he is the smiling tenderness and the playful gaiety; he is at once the player, the play and all his playmates. And as both the game and its results are wholly known, conceived, willed, organised and played consciously in their entirety, there can be no room for anything but the delight of the play. Thus to see Krishna means to find the inner Godhead, to play with Krishna means to be identified with the inner Godhead and to share in his consciousness. THE MOTHER God as beauty, Sri Krishna in Brindavan, Shyamsundara, is not only Beauty, He is also Love, and without perfect love there cannot be perfect beauty, and without perfect beauty there cannot be perfect delight. SRI AUROBINDO
