Radha Ashtami 2022: History

It was well known that Radha Rani was the goddess Lakshmi’s avatar. Radha Rani is believed to have been born or found lying on a lotus petal in a pond in Barsana. She was adopted by Keerti and Vrishbhanu, a couple who did not have children of their own and picked her up. The small child did not open her eyes until Shri Krishna came in front of her, according to Hindu belief. According to Hindu scriptures, Radha is Lord Krishna’s spiritual force, and anyone who observes the Radha Ashtami fast would be given a long and happy life.
