The story of Radha and Krishna's separation

The story of Radha and Krishna's separation

This is how Radha and Krishna's love story ended!  Finally Radha's condition was like this ...

You must have heard many stories about Radha and Krishna, but do you know how Radha died or how Radha and Krishna separated.

Radhe-Shyam ... These two words are considered part of unbreakable love.  Even though each other could never happen, but still the name was always taken with each other.  Stories of Krishna's birth, Radha's birth, their friendship are very popular, but do you know how Radha died?  How their love story was left incomplete?

Was Radha fictional chracter?

Many people say that Radha was just imaginary.  reason?  The reason is that anyone who has read Bhagwat says that when Maharas is being described only in Dasam Skanda, at one place Radha has been mentioned that she is also doing rasa and enjoying. There are different descriptions of the gopis of Radha and Krishna in different texts.  In one place it is also written that 64 kala of Krishna were gopis and Radha was his superpower ie Radha and gopis were the powers of Krishna who took a female form.
The gopis has been called Paramhans (in whose mind God lives day and night) on the path of devotion because Krishna lived in their mind for 24 hours.  The real description of Radha and Krishna's love is found in Garga Samhita. Rishi Garga Muni was the Kulguru of Yaduvanshi (Kansa) who was the author of Garg Samhita (i.e. in a way also became Kulguru of Krishna). In the Garg Samhita, the leelas of Radha and Krishna are mentioned .  Radha-Krishna's love is mentioned .  In this Samhita, there is sweet memory of Sri Krishna's leela, in it Radhaji's description of melodious leelas. If Garg Muni was the Kulguru of the Yaduvanshis, then how could it be that he would portray a fictional character in Krishna leela running in front of him?  This is where Radha's proof of truth comes from!

Did Krishna cheat to Radha?

Krishna went to mathura and promising Radha to that he will come back.  But Krishna did not return to Radha and went away.  He was also married to Rukmani.  It is said that Rukmani was the form of Lakshmi and she had never seen Krishna, yet considered him her husband.
When Rukmani's brother Rukmi wanted to marry her to someone else(Shishupal), Rukmani remembered Krishna and said that if he does not come, she will give up her life.  Only after this Krishna went to Rukmani and married to her. Since Krishna left Vrindavan, Radha's description became very less.  When Radha and Krishna met for the last time, Radha told Krishna that even though he is going away from her, Krishna will always be with her from the heart. After this Krishna went to Mathura and completed his work of killing Kansa and the other demons.  After this, Krishna went to Dwarka to protect the people and became popular as Dwarkadhish.

Then what happened to Radha?

 When Krishna left Vrindavan, Radha's life took a different turn.  Radha is married to a Yadav.  Radha played all the rituals of her married life and grew old, but her mind was still devoted to Krishna.

Who was Radha's husband?

Radha's husband is described in the Brahmavaivarta Purana.  It is one of the 18 Puranas composed by Ved Vyas.
There are also different stories about Radha's marriage.  According to some, Radha was married to Anay.  Anay was also a resident of Vrindavan and Radha and Anay were married after an examination of Brihama. Briha kidnapped all his friends and hid them in the forest to find out that Krishna is indeed an avatar of Vishnu.  At that time, Anay was also in the forest and he was also abducted by mistake. After this Krishna took the form of all his friends (with Anay) and then started living in the homes of all the children.  After this, Krishna as Anay was married to Radha. According to another story, Radha was not married at all.  According to Brahmavaivart Purana, while leaving her home, Radha left her shadow (Chhaya Radha / Maya Radha) at home with mother Kirti. Shadow Radha was married to Rayan Gopa (Yashoda's brother) and not Anay. That is why it is also said that Radha was Krishna's maternal aunt in the relationship. They were married in Saket village, which was situated between Barsana and Nandgaon.  That is, Radha spent her married life well, even though she was connected to Krishna with her heart .

How did Radha die?

 According to folklore, Radha left her house in the last days of her life and went to Dwarka to meet Krishna.  When these two finally met, both did not say anything.  Both knew that both were connected with the heart. But Radha felt that being close to Krishna was not giving the kind of happiness that she felt when she was connected to Krishna with heart.  Radha left the palace without saying anything. In the final moments, Krishna fulfilled Radha's final wish in which he heard to Radha by playing the melody of the sweetest flute.  Only after this Radha ji merged with Krishna.  Radha's death is not described in any Purana.

Why could not get Radha-Shyam…

The conversation between Devarshi Narada and Mithila Naresh(King) is told in the Goloka incident of Garg Samhita.  It was due to the curse of Radha and Sridama that Radha and Krishna had to face separation for 100 years.
Another story has been written in the 49th chapter of the Vishvajeet kand of Shri Garg Samhita.  It is said that Radha and Krishna met after 100 years during a solar eclipse that was happening in Kurukshetra.  During this time, Lord Yogeshwar took Radha with his queens and gopis to Dwarka. Here everyone participated in the Rajasuya Yajna which was done by King Ugrasena.  At that time Radha was with Krishna as his wife and it is said that Radha was married to Krishna and she was shadow Radha who became Krishna's maternal aunt by marrying Rayan Gopa.  But only this Yajna is considered to be the proof of Radha and Krishna's marriage.
