About Shri Radha Krishna
Sri Krishna is the supreme personality of the deity and is worshipped with his wife Srimati Radharani. People say that Krishna is the eighth avatara of Sri Maha Vishnu. But Brahma Samhita, a prayer composed by Lord Brahma, mentions that Krishna is the original purusha and is the source of Lord Maha Vishnu. This is also confirmed in Srimad Bhagavatam. He appeared as the son of Devaki and Vasudeva and played several times with his brother Balarama.
Srimati Radharani is the eternal consort of Lord Sri Krishna. She is the repository of all good qualities and the crest jewel among all the lovely consorts of Lord Krishna. Her mind, senses and body are steeped in love for Krishna. She is Krishna’s own energy and there is no difference between the energy and the energetic. Without energy, there is no meaning to the energetic, and without the energetic, there is no energy. Similarly, without Radha there is no meaning to Krishna, and without Krishna, there is no meaning to Radha.

Radhakrishna Mantra Meaning:
I memorize the Lord in his infant form (Mukunda), who sleeps in a Banyan leaf. He is the one who puts his lotus life feet to His mouth, with the help of His hands.
I sing praise of Ramachandra, Who is known as Achyuta (infallible), Keshav, Raam, Narayan, Krishna, Damodara, Vasudeva, Hari, Shridhara (possessing Lakshmi), Madhava, Gopikavallabha (Dearest of Gopika), and Janakinayaka (Lord of Janaki or Sita).
I offer a salute with my hands together to Achyuta, Who is known as Keshav, Who is the consort of Satyabhama. He is also known as Madhav and Shridhar, Who is longed-for by Radhika, Who is like a temple of Lakshmi (Indira), who is beautiful at heart. He is the son of Devaki, and Who is the Dear-One of all.
I offer my respect to Shri Radha rani, who has molten gold complexion. O Goddess, You are the queen of Vrindavana, the daughter of King Vrishabhanu, and are very dear to Lord Krishna.
Radha rani is a resident of Goloka, known as Vrindavan, and is a cowherd damsel. She is the queen of the gopis and the divine mother of the cowherd boys. She is joyful and always experiencing the highest bliss. She incites strong desires in the heart of the son of Nanda (Lord Krishna).
