As Krishna was as beautiful as the moon and
his skin was blue as a cloud and softer than
a blue lotus ,
Radha would always wear a blue sari
and bedeck herself with blue sapphires. And
because Radha’s skin was golden in colour
like a flash of brilliant lightning, Krishna would
always wear a yellow or golden dhoti. Radha
wore tinkling anklets or payals on her ankles,
and so Krishna wore them too. When they
walked together it made a beautiful sound .
Krishna wore a peacock feather on his
head, which shimmered and caught the
light resembling a bright and beautiful
rainbow, and a garland of pearls (moti). The
pearl necklace that hung on his chest looked
like a row of swans flying across a blue cloud.
Krishna also wore a garland of colourful
wild flowers called the Vaijantimala. Their
bodies would shine with an unusual glow,
and while Krishna shone and sparkled
like the soft silvery moon, Radha seemed
to dazzle like golden lightning.
Krishna also wore fish-shaped earrings and carried
a flute. So when Krishna played his flute, Radha knew
Krishna was in Madhuvana and she would go running to him.
And a the story goes on , that the day would melt
into evening, blue clouds and the moon would be
up on the sky and Radha's eyes would be fixed
on Krishna, and Krishna’s on Radha. Krishna was
as beautiful as a moon and his skin was as blue as
the heavens. Seeing the moon and evening sky,
Radha would be full of love for Krishna. Krishna was
her life and soul—the treasure of her life and the very
life of her own life. Radha adored Krishna with all her
heart, all she wanted to do was to make Krishna happy
—and making him happy was what made her happy.
She found joy in his joy. She did everything in her
power to please him even if it meant putting Krishna
and his wishes before herself and hers, asking for
nothing in return.
