Shree Radhika Sahasranaamam

(The1000 Names of Radha) English transliteration with Sanskrit text

The Divine lotus-feet of Srimati Radharani, revealed on Radhashtami day, Sep 12, 2013, at the ISKCON temple in Detroit, MI. The Sahasranamstotra Sangraha (Gita Press, Gorakhpur) is a compilation of the Sahasranamams (1000 names) for several deities and includes the Sahasranamams for Shree Krishna, then one addressed to Radhakrishna, and finally one for Radhika. The following is my humble effort to render the 1000

names today, in both Sanskrit and the English transliteration, an effort that I begin this morning on holy day of Radhashtami, September 12, 2013. I am presenting below the first 100 naamas and will update this document during the day and in the course of the next few days until all 1000 names are completed. The following two sources with a brief English translation (and English transliteration) are available. http://www.vrindavan.de/1000-radha.htm http://www.stephen-knapp.com/sri_radha-sahasra-nama.htm http://www.google.com/ig/directory?type=gadgets&url=hosting.gmodules.c om/ig/gadgets/file/103159279678197997651/googleindictransliteration.x ml Google Indic Transliterator tool used in this compilation

As with many other scriptures, the Sahasranamam starts as a conversation between Parvati and Lord Shiva. Parvati devi wants Lord Shiva to reveal to her the 1000 names of Radha and how and why She, the Goddess who creates (BrahmaanDa kartree) and destroys (hartree), became a Gopi. Parvati wants to know these 1000 names that are more secret (guhyataram) than the most secret (guhyaat) of all and had never before been revealed to anyone. Notice that the naamaas here take the ending yai following the rules for female nouns. For example, no. 44 is Shivaayai Namah, from Shivaa for a female name (long vowel at end) as opposed Shivaaya namah, from Shiva, for a male name (short vowel at the end). Likewise, no. 45 is GaNaadhyakshaayai Namah, from GaNaadhyakshaa (long vowel at the end) for a female name. The same name, when used with Ganesha, becomes GaNaadhyakshaaya Namah, from GaNaadhyaksha for a male noun.

The names highlighted with the asterisks thus far (200 naamaas) suggest that all the female deities are actually manifestations of Radharani. This is also confirmed in the verses of the Garga Samhita, where the wedding of Radha, performed by Brahma himself, is described, see http://www.scribd.com/ doc/69147482/RadhaKalyanam-Wedding-ofRadha-and-Krishna

RadhakrishNa darshan on Radhashtami, Sep 12, 2013, at the ISKCON temple, Detroit, MI. (Lotus feet of Radharani are seen only on this day.)

The thousand Names of Radharani [From the Narada Pancharata, translated by Bhaktivinoda Thakura, translated into English by Kusakratha Prabhu] Sri Radha Sahasra-nama was originally spoken by Lord Shiva to Parvati devi, recorded in the 5th Chapter of Sri Narada Pancaratra.

The following translation of the verses, see http://www.vrindavan.de/1000-radha.htm is also noteworthy in this context (click here).

Text 11 om sri-radha radhika krsnavallabha krsna-samyuta

Page | 13

Om. She is Lord Krsna's greatest worshiper (sri-radha and radhika), Lord Krsna's beloved (krsnavallabha), and Lord Krsna's constant companion (krsna-samyuta). Text 14 krsnanga-vasini hrdya hari-kanta hari-priya pradhana-gopika gopakanya trailokya-sundari Her residence is on Lord Krsna's limbs (krsnanga-vasini). She is charming (hrdya). She is Lord Hari's beloved (hari-kanta and hari-priya), the most important gopi (pradhana-gopika), the daughter of a gopa (gopa-kanya), and the most beautiful girl in the three worlds (trailokyasundari). Text 16 gati-prada gita-gamya gamanagamana-priya visnu-priya visnu-kanta visnor anga-nivasini She gives the goal of life (gati-prada), is approached by chanting her holy names (gita-gamya), is the beloved of the omniprescent Supreme Personality of Godhead (gamanagamana-priya), is Lord Visnu's beloved (visnu-priya and visnu-kanta), and resides on Lord Visnu's limbs (visnor anga-nivasini). My comment: Alternative reading based on Sanskrit text of Sahasranama Sangraha is VishNor-anka-nivaasini; anka, not anga. The former means lap whereas the latter means limbs or body. Lord Vishnus beloved who is on His lap. Text 26 payasvini payo-datri pavitra sarva-mangala maha-jiva-prada krsnakanta kamala-sundari She is buxom (payasvini and payo-datri), pure (pavitra), all-auspicious (sarva-mangala), the great giver of life (maha-jiva-prada), Lord Krsna's beloved (krsna-kanta), and beautiful as a lotus (kamala-sundari). Text 40 prakrtih sambhu-kanta ca sadasiva-manohara ksut pipasa daya nidra bhrantih srantih ksamakula She is the goddess of the material nature (prakrti), and the beautiful wife of Lord Siva (sambhukanta and sadasiva-manohara). She is hunger (ksut), thirst (pipasa), mercy (daya), sleep (nidra), bewilderment (bhranti), exhaustion (sranti), and patience (ksamakula).

Text 41 vadhu-rupa gopa-patni bharati siddha-yogini satya-rupa nitya-rupa nityangi nitya-gehini She is a young girl (vadhu-rupa), the wife of a gopa (gopa-patni), the goddess of eloquence (bharati), and perfect in the science of yoga (siddha-yogini). Her form is eternal (satya-rupa, nitya-rupa, and nityangi), and She is Lord Krsna's wife eternally (nitya-gehini). Text 52 anda-rupanda-madhyastha tathanda-paripalini anda-bahyanda-samhartri siva-brahma-hari-priya She is the goddess who is the material universe (anda-rupa), the goddess who has entered the material universe (anda-madhyastha), the protectress of the material universe (anda-paripalini), the goddess who is beyond the material universe (anda-bahya), the destroyer of the material universe (anda-samhartri), and she who is dear to Siva, Brahma, and Visnu (siva-brahma-haripriya). My comments: priya = beloved, as in text 16, which then takes on a different meaning. The texts highlighted here suggest that all the female deities are indeed the manifestation of Srimati Radharani. Therefore, Krishna is also to be identified with Hari, Vishnu, Shiva, Brahma. The multiplicity of the names and forms of the Supreme should not delude us. We all love our mothers, the first female we know in our lives. We also love our sisters and other female relatives. Later in life, when one gets married, one loves ones wife. All of these are love but each is different, sweet, and unique in its own way. If we wish to distinguish, we can use terms like dear to describe the love for mother, sisters, and other female relatives, and beloved to describe the love of a wife. The word priya, depending on the context, can move both dear (as in Chapter 12 of the Bhagavad Gita, where Krishna talks about the qualities of a bhakta, a devotee, that make the bhakta dear, or priya, to Him) and also beloved as in the usage of Texts 11 and 16. The word kanta, as used in texts with Hari-kanta (text 14), Visnukanta (text 16), Krishna-kanta (text 26) means beloved. The same goes for vallabha. It also means beloved, like kanta. Transcendental love indeed transcends all these readily understood distinctions between the mundane types of love or endearments. (Note: The above is based entirely on the translations, reproduced above, by a VaishNavite scholar and Goswami like Bhaktivinoda Thakura. Or, is this MY INTERPRETATION? Let the Divine Blessings of Radharani provide the answer to this question.)
