When we say Radha Kalyanam, immediately the divine
images of Radha and Krishna spring to mind. While
for those who are steeped in spirituality and
devotion, the concept of Radha Kalyanam gives
inspiration, for laymen a question may arise as to
why we ordinary human beings have to conduct the
divine union of Gods? But an explanation of the real
meaning behind this grand celebration will perhaps
clear the air: The ancient Hindu philosophical
wisdom postulates that Jeevatma is nothing but a
creation of Paramatma and is destined to re-unite
with Paramatma and Radha Kalyanam is nothing but a
meaningful way of celebrating this reunion.
represents the Jeevatma which is nothing but a
creation of Krishna, the Paramatma and Radha
Kalyanam is the re-union of the Jeevatma (Radha)
with Paramatma (Krishna).
We ordinary human beings
by this simple act of performing Radha Kalyanam are
actually glorifying the world’s most potent
spiritual wisdom namely “ADVAITA”, which says
Jeevatma and Paramatma are one and the same!
description of Radha Kalyanam may best be
exemplified by the 35-year glorification of the
concept by a group of dedicated people in the
bustling suburb of Perambur in Chennai. And that
brings us to the stellar institutions of Sri Geetha
Govinda Mandali and Sri Kamakshi Mandali.
