Radha: Krishna's beloved

Radha is the eternal lover and supreme devotee of Krishna. Born in Barsana, a village about 8 kilometers from Vrindavan (in Uttar Pradesh), to the cowherd Vrishabhanu and his wife, Kamalavati, she was the loveliest of cowherds and childhood friend of Krishna. Her love for Krishna was all consuming for she willingly ignored all the societal mores and obligations. Married to Ayana,

a cowherd she continued her secret rendezvous with Krishna even after her marriage.

Though there were several gopis (cowherds) who were in love with Krishna, it was the love of Radha that binded Krishna. It was Radha who gave the greatest pleasure to Krishna. Whenever she punished Krishna for his straying ways, he as an obedient lover accepted Radha's commands willingly.
