Śrīla Kṛṣṇadāsa Kavirāja Gosvāmī has revealed some of the names of Rādhikā in his Caitanya-caritāmṛta, Ādi-līlā, Chapter 4. One of Her names is Govinda-nandinī. What are Kṛṣṇa’s thoughts when He is in Mathurā and Dvārakā and feeling separation from Rādhikā? He prays to Her, “O ārādhya! O most worshipful Rādhe! My mind always remains with You. I’m always anxious for the dust of Your lotus feet. Somehow, in some form, I stay in Vṛndāvana. O Śrīmatī Rādhike, in search for You only am I roaming in those forests and playing on My flute. O Rādhike, I go to the Yamunā, not to take bath, but only to meet with You. Otherwise, there is no need to go there. I sit on the bank of Yamunā only to meet with You and serve You.
Without the mercy of Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmīpāda and Śrīla Raghunātha dāsa Gosvāmī, no one would have been able to write about these topics. The conception that Rādhikā is the center of all is exclusively for those in our Gauḍīya-Sampradāya. We have the speciality of thinking, “Kṛṣṇa is feeling separation from Rādhikā.” No other ācāryas can write about all the truths present herein.
