Why Shri Krishna never married Radha

Radha Krishna

Without Radha, Krishna is incomplete and without Krishna, Radha cannot be complete. While it is said Krishna is reincarnation of Bhagwan Vishnu, Radha is considered to be the supreme goddess as she is the reincarnation of Goddess Lakshmi. Radha and Krishna enchanting love story make us think why Shri Krishna never married Radha.

Love and Marriage two different things

According to various researches and studies conducted, it is said that Shri Krishna never married Radha as he believed; love and marriage are two different things. According to the Vedas, Krishna believed that marriage is an agreement or arrangement while love is a selfless emotion where you pledge to love someone with purified nature. 

Bhakti Love

Furthermore, Radha was in love with Krishna so much that she believed Krishna was God and she used to love him as a devotee. She was lost in ‘bhakti love’ which people started mistaking as a physical love. Radha and Krishna love is taken as a relationship between a devotee and God.

Radha is not separate from Shri Krishna

According to the facts believed, Radha is not separate from Krishna. Shri Krishna has various types of energies and you need two individuals to get married. Also, Radha is Shri Krishna’s energy which pleases him. Therefore it is believed that Radha and Krishna are two different manifestations of the divine principle.

Highest Devotion of Love

In order to show that Radha and Krishna relationship was not physical but it was actually the eminent level of love between the two, Shri Krishna did not marry Radha. It is said that it was the highest devotion of love expressed by a human (Radha) to Shri Krishna (The God). According to the Vedic scriptures, the love shared between Radha and Krishna cannot be compared to any other mythological or love stories from history.

Radha Krishna – One Soul

One more story supports the idea which says Radha refused to marry Krishna because she felt she doesn’t fit in the place. According to Radha, people would never want Shri Krishna to marry a cowgirl. They would surely want Shri Krishna to marry a princess. However, Shri Krishna reassured Radha about the marriage and her status in the society, but she was firm in her decision. Also, there is one more theory which says that because Krishna and Radha are one soul, Krishna says that how can he marry his own soul.He explained the world that Radha and Krishna are one and not different from each other in existence or spirit.

Modern-day couples have been inspired by the eternal love story of Radha and Krishna. Even after so many eras, heavenly couple Radha-Krishna is worshipped together by everyone.
