  • Worship of Gopikas

    [A devotee spoke that one devotee asked “Why Gopikas were not worshipped in temples as Hanuman was worshipped? Swami said that Hanuman and Gopikas are top most devotees”.]

    Swami replied: Radha represents Gopikas and is equally worshipped by the side of Krishna. Radha is said to be the incarnation of the sage Durvasa, who is the incarnation of Lord Shiva. Hanuman is also said to be the incarnation of Lord Shiva. This shows that both Hanuman and Radha are worshipped as God and have equal status. Both Radha and Hanuman are the incarnations of the same God, since Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva are one and the same Lord. Sometimes, you can find in cinema the same hero acting as the master and his servant. The roles of Hanuman and Radha represent the role of a devotee. God has taken the role of an ideal devotee to show the path of ideal devotion as an example to all the devotees. Even Rama did not express His divinity and Lordship on any occasion. To find God in such secret human incarnation, it is very difficult and is possible only to a devotee, who is God Himself. An ordinary human being with normal level of intelligence cannot recognize Rama as human incarnation. Therefore, Hanuman represents not only the infinite physical strength (Balam), but also the infinite strength of intelligence (Buddhi).
