“Just as Srimate Radharani is dear to the Supreme Lord Krishna [Visnu], so Her bathing place [Radha-kunda] is equally dear to Krishna. Among all the gopis, She alone stands supreme as the Lord’s most beloved.” - Laghu-bhägavatämrta -Uttara-khanda 45
Radha Kund Meditation
Personally excavated by the loving hands of Srimati Herself, Radha Kund is the terrestrial manifestation of Her lake in the spiritual realm which is filled with the liquid mellows gathered from the melted hearts of Sri Sri Radha and Krishna.
The purifying influence of Her waters awards the same flavor of love as Srimati feels for Krishna. In the same vein, bathing in Shyama Kund bestows love for Srimati similar to that which Sri Krishna feels for Her. And in the confluence of these two ponds - where their sacred waters meet- Their Lordhips remain forever immersed in the nectar of divine union.
Thus, pilgrims bathe first in Radha Kund, then Shyama Kund and once again in Radha's lake.
In addition, these two ponds embody the loving reciprocation of Radha and Krishna for Their servants. For just as the devotees cherish the blessing of offering abhishek, bathing the Lord with sacred substances that signify the affections of their hearts, Their Lordships mercifully award Their devotees the opportunity to bathe in the liquid esssence of Their Own love.
Due to these considerations and many more as well, the banks of Radha Kund and Shyama Kund – situated as the eyes of Govardhana Hill – are eternally Srimati's favorite place in Vraja. Furthermore, Radha Kund is as dear to Krishna as is Srmiati herself.
We therefore offer our prayers, reverence, and seva to Sri Sri Radha Kund and Shyama Kund with the hope that the beautiful bhava of Their Lordships may purify our consciousness, melt our hearts, and flow in pursuit of the mellows that fill the two most sacred lakes in all creation.
