About : 

  • RadhaKrishna is a mystic expression; the two images being two aspects of an indivisible whole. Shri Krishna is the manifestation of the Supreme Purusa, the all-inclusive cosmos and boundless fountain-head of creation defined by the Vedas as ‘The Infinite‘. Shri Radha is the embodiment of His Transcendent Energy, Divine Love and Eternal Bliss.
