"Some devotees worship only Shri Krishna and some only Shri Radha, and at the same time commit a transgression by discriminating between Radha and Krishna. We must always remember that both are eternally one. For this reason, I wrote these one hundred bhajans, fifty of Radha Rani and fifty of Shri Krishna ..." Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji
According to Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj, due to the tendencies of a person's mind, he or she may have more natural attraction and love for Radha and less for Krishna, or vice versa. However, Kripalu Ji Maharaj advises that aspiring devotees on the path of bhakti yoga or any other spiritual path must never forget that Radha and Krishna are one divine entity and not two. To assist people in deepening their love through meditation on Shri Radha Krishna, while staying in the holy land of Barsana in the year 2000, Kripaluji playfully revealed these delightful Hindi bhajans.
Though it is true that only a rasik can truly relish and experience the nectar of divine love in the writings of another rasik, nevertheless, inquisitive readers of Yugal Shatak are bound to experience some happiness and elation from reading these bhakti songs. Apart from describing the beauty and glory of Shri Radha Krishna's divine forms, names, qualities and lilas, there are philosophical verses that elaborate upon the true meaning of spirituality and essential characteristics of practical devotion, such as humility and forbearance. In this way, not only do these bhajans contain the nectar of divine love in the form of lila ras and shringar ras, but they also are complemented with the philosophy of the Vedas, Puranas, Upanishads etc.
