“Krishna as Teacher of Love
A dear friend of mine made me aware of Krishna in modern India, and I am impressed by the life and devotion.
One of the central themes is the love between Krishna and Radha.
It’s the same story we also know in Greek with Hermaphroditos and Salmakis or from the Hebrew with Adam and Lilith.
The love affair starts when the astral body joins with the etheric body, and it ends when Krishna leaves Radha, the
astral separates from the etheric, causing Radhas death, symbolizing that the etherbody are bound to the physical
This is both a cosmic event, that happened when dreamtime ended, but it happens also each day, when we go through
the small death.
When we wake, and the etherbody joins with the astral body, the love affair starts.
When we sleep, and the astral body separates from the etherbody, only connected to the etherbody through a silver
cord, she dies, she become unconscious and enter sleep.
The initiation, the Rosicrucian Chümical wedding, the Union of the masculine and feminine, is the marriage between
Krishna and Radha, thereafter they will not separate again.
Krishna as Teacher of Love
A dialog from Gita Govinda is telling that each person is the half of a soul, that they are searching their other
half (twin-spirit), and one of Krishna’s tasks is to learn humankind to love, as it’s the only way to find the
Krishna: “When two souls are united, the difference of the other or second vanishes; so if we are but one soul,
then why do you wish for marriage?”
Radha: “Right now I see no difference between me and the others; everyone thinks you belong to them; so how does
that set me apart?”
Krishna: “There are hundred Gopis who search for me every day; who wish to be with me; but you’re the only one I
search for, and wish to be with; does that not set you apart?”
Radha: “No, it does not; because you seem eager to accept the Love of every Gopi, not just mine; I have no proof
I’m apart from others.”
Krishna: “I am eager to accept the Love of not just every Gopi, but every Gwala, and every other creature that
wants to shower me with love.
Can’t you see Radha, that is the purpose why I am here; to fill every living soul with Love; to teach every
creature to Love.
I cannot reject any Love that is offered to me; Love requires both strength and courage. It requires courage to
profess Love; Love that is professed and accepted gives strength.
Courage and strength will help every living being to endure the highs and lows of life. By encouraging living
beings to profess their love to me, I gift them courage; by accepting their love, I gift them strength
If every Radha has to find her Krishna, and every Krishna His Radha, they have to start somewhere, with someone.
I am that Beginning; by learning to love me, and feeling that they are loved in return, I take every Gopi and Gwala
as every other creature one step forward towards their own Krishnas and Radhas.
If I were to reject their Love, then they would never have the courage to ever profess Love to anyone again, then
how would they ever find and unite, with their own Krishnas and Radhas?”
Radha: “Even if I were to accept what you are saying Krishna, how does it prevent you from marrying me, if it is
important to me? What is it that prevents you from marrying me?
Krishna: “Because, we are but one soul; marriage is to unite two souls; we are one soul split into two; we are
simply part of the other.”
Radha: “If we are but one soul split into two, then Krishna, then you should not have a problem offering me
Krishna: “Now you are speaking from Ego; Ego divides; you are seeing us as two separate entities; speak from Love
and you’ll see we were one.”
Krishna and Romanticism
At the start of the human development we were animals with a soul seed, we acted as animals and we procreated as
animals, mindless love, we should learn to love as individuals, face to face, and it didn’t happen by chance, books
were written to teach mankind how to do it, into the least detail, like Kama Sutra, and Krishna teached man how to
love with the heart.”
