All glories to the daughter of Vrishabhanu Maharaj, all glories to the queen of Vraja, all glories to the dear most sakhi of Shyamsundar, all glories to the swamini of all the gaudiya vaishnavas. Srimati Radhika is the complete energy of Sri Krishna, his swaroop shakti and the embodiment of all transcendental bliss. Her love for Sri Krishna is unsurpassed and her glories have no end. Sachi, the wife of Lord Indra, Laxmi, the goddess of fortune and all other respected goddesses worship Srimati Radhika and hope to attain her favor. It is in her association only that Sri Krishna finds complete satisfaction. When taking darshan of golden complexioned Srimati Radhika, who is madan mohan mohini, the attractor of Madan mohan Sri Krishna, one can offer the following prayers in her glorification:

tapta-kāñcana-gaurāńgi rādhe vṛndāvaneśvari
vṛṣabhānu-sute devī praṇamāmi hari-priye

I offer my respects to Rādhārāṇī, whose bodily complexion is like molten gold and who is the Queen of Vṛndāvana. You are the daughter of King Vṛṣabhānu, and You are very dear to Lord Kṛṣṇa.

tavaivasmi tavaivasmi / na jivami tvaya vina
iti vijnaya devi tvam / naya mama caranantikam

I am Yours! I am Yours! I cannot live without You! O Devi Radhe, please understand this and bring me to Your lotus feet.
