      Namaste!

      Today (Sep. 5 in America, Sep. 6 in India) is the birthday of Sri Radha
      (Sri Radha Ashtami), the consort of Lord Krishna. There are two articles
      on our websites about Sri Radha, the personification of love. They are:

      and

      We have uploaded a discourse by Guru Maharaj Sri Swami Chidanandaji
      titled "The Saint's Magic". In this article Guru Maharaj talks about the
      magic that a saint performs in transforming the inner being of a person.

      DAYANANDAJI'S TEACHINGS: An admirer of the Arya Samaj had arrived. He
      expressed his dislike of Karma Kanda, the path of action.

      "Yes, there in the cities you have one type of Karma, here you have
      another type. There it is binding, here it is selfless and free, a type
      of Karma which liberates you from the thraldom of Maya. This is the
      Sannyas-Karma Kanda. The difference is one of outlook, but this is in
      fact an ocean of difference," said the Master.

      "Swamiji," said the visitor, "I want some instructions on
      concentration."

      "You do not believe in names and forms also? Concentration without names
      and forms is not easily possible for all. The mind wants something on
      which to hang. In the initial stages it cannot hang onto something
      abstract or on an idea. At least you should have the form of Om.

      "This antagonism to names and forms is the creation of individuals who
      have not correctly understood Swami Dayanandaji's teachings. He himself
      did not condemn the singing of God's Name. He was in a high stage of
      evolution and concerned himself only with the fundamental Vedic truths.
      He did not categorically condemn name and form. He only omitted any
      mention of them. People should try to understand him in the proper light
      instead of reading their own views into his sublime teachings.

      "Read my book 'Concentration and Meditation'. It will clear your doubts.
      It contains a solution to every problem that can possibly confront an
      aspirant in his practice of concentration and meditation. When you have
      finished reading it, you will find that you have no more doubts. If you
      still have any, then come to me. I will explain the subject to you."

      -----------------------------------------------------

      "Radha is Devi. She is the queen of lustrous beauties and the abode of
      Sri Krishna's love-sports and worship. She beholds Lord Krishna in
      anything and everything she sets Her love-lit eyes upon. Lord Krishna is
      the supreme matchless Lover and Sri Radha is identical with Krishna. She
      is part and parcel of Krishna and His love-energy. Her sole object of
      existence and devout prayers, is to fulfil the wishes of Sri Krishna.
      Hence She is named Krishnamayi by the Puranas. She is full of Krishna
      inside and outside. Krishna is the charmer of all. Radha is Krishna's
      charmer and therefore the Supreme Goddess." - Swami Sivananda
