"Shri Radha please be seated on the swing, as the clouds have gathered."

Radha’s love towards Krishna in the terrestrial or customary meaning is not just the relation between a man and woman. The feeling of this love is divine and phenomenal which gives this love a pious form.
Nand Baba who lived in the nearby village was friends with Vrishbhanu. Once during the festival of Holi; Vrishbanu went to Gokul to meet Nand. At Nand and Yashoda’s house Krishna (who was growing up as their son) met Radha. Their union was divine, phenomenal and incessant. This meeting was Radha and Krishna’s first meeting which became eternal.
It is said that at Radha’s birth, Devarshi Narad himself went and met Vrishbhanu and informed him, “This girl’s beauty and nature is divine. All the houses, wherever her footprints are, Lord Narayana with all other deities will reside. Nurture this girl as a Goddess.” According to Rishi Narada’s advice, Vrishbhanu nurtured Radha with great love and care.
Radha who was the daughter of Vrishbhanu Gurjar who was king Suchandra in his previous life. Suchandra and his wife had acquired a boon from Brahmaji that in the Dwapar age Shri Laxmi will be born as a daughter to them in the form of Radha. King Suchendra and Queen Kalavati only were reborn as Vrishbhanu and Kirtikumari and Laxmiji was incarnated as Radha.
Krishna vanquished his enemies, became the king, and came to be worshiped as a lord of the universe. She was always a great devotee to him. He married, raised a family, helped Arjuna in fighting a great war MahaBharatha, and she always wished his well being. So great was Radha's love for Krishna that even today her name is uttered whenever Krishna is referred to, and Krishna’s worship is incomplete without the deification of Radha. Jai Radhe Krishna!!!
Radha, daughter of Vrishabhanu, was the friend of Krishna during that period of his life when he lived among the cowherds of Vrindavan. Since childhood they were close to each other - they played, they danced, they fought, they grew up together and wanted to be together forever, but the duties pulled them apart. Krishna departed to safeguard the virtues of Karma, and she waited for him.
"Krishna's Love with the 'gopis' are interpreted as symbolic of the loving interplay between God and the human soul. Radha's utterly ecstatic love for Krishna and their relationship is often interpreted as the quest for union with the divine. This kind of love is of the highest form of devotion."
"The Radha-Krishna amour is a love legend of all times. It's indeed hard to miss the many legends and paintings illustrating Krishna's love affairs, of which the Radha-Krishna affair is the most memorable. Krishna's relationship with Radha, his favorite among the gopis (cow-herding country girls), has served as a model for male and female love in a variety of art forms, and since the sixteenth century appears prominently as a motif in North Indian paintings.
