Radharani's birthday is considered one of the most auspicious days of the year by Vaishnavas. Radha is the eternal consort of Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Radharani is described in the shastra as the pleasure potency of Krishna. Krishna is Param Brahman. He cannot
enjoy anything material. He has to create the source of enjoyment by His own spiritual potency. That is Radharani. Devotees of Lord Krishna sing on this day: "Jaya Radhe" to please her. If she is pleased then Krishna is pleased. So devotees are very busy on this day to please and serve Radharani understanding that without her mercy no one can approach Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Jaya Radhe! Jaya Radhe!.
