Prayers in glorification of Sri Sri Radha Shyamsundar

The highest goal of spiritual life that a Sadhaka can hope to attain is the service of the lotus feet of the divine couple of Vrindavan. Sri Krishna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead and Srimati Radhika is his complete internal energy. Although one, they have appeared as two just to enjoy various transcendental amorous pastimes. Surrounded by their intimate associates, the vraja gopis, Sri Sri Radha Shyamsundar, engage in most wonderous pastimes in the beautiful groves of Vraja. While taking darshan of the Sri Vigraha of the fair and dark complexioned youthful couple, Sri Radha madhav, one can offer the following prayers in their glorification:

divyad-vrndaranya-kalpa-drumadhah
srimad-ratnagara-simhasana-sthau
srimad-radha-srila-govinda-devau
presthalibhih sevyamanau smarami

In a temple of jewels in Vrndavana, underneath a desire tree, Sri Sri Radha-Govinda, served by Their most confidential associates, sit upon an effulgent throne. I offer my humble obeisances unto Them.

kanaka-jalada-gatrau nila-sonabja-netrau
mrgamada-rasa-bhalau malati-kunda-malau
tarala-taruna-vesau nila-pitambaresau
smara nibhrta-nikunje radhika-krishnacandrau

Please meditate on Shri Shri Radhika`-Krishnacandra, whose limbs are monsoon clouds and gold, whose eyes are blue and red lotuses, whose foreheads are anointed with sweet musk, who wear garlands of malati and kunda flowers, who have the charming playfulness of youth, and who wear regal blue and yellow garments in a secluded forest grove.
