Radha-Madhava and the song ‘Jaya Radha-Madhava’
This song, composed by Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura, was not composed with any random set of deities in mind. In reality, this song was composed with his family deities, Radha-Madhava in mind. Thus, this song is the direct representation of his particular family deities and the sweet pastimes They perform. Additionally, these deities are the direct embodiment of this particular song. A prominent Gauḍīya Vaiṣṇava Ācārya, Śrīla Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupāda commented on this song:
“This is actual picture of Krsna, Radha-Madhava giri-vara-dhari. Original Krsna this is. Radha-Madhava giri-vara-dhari. Vraja-jana-vallabha. His business is to please the inhabitants of Vrndavana. That’s all. He has no other business. And the vraja-jana also, they have no other business than to please Krsna. That’s all. This is original Krsna.” (February 14, 1971, Gorakhpur, India).
