Sri Sri Raghunath Goswami, originating from the linage of Adwaita clan, was the mentor of Raja Banamali Roy, the king of Taras, Pabna. He asked Bandhusundar- “Prabhu who is your mentor?” Prabhu replied, on the trot- “The Daughter of Brishvanu initiated me by the side of Radhakund.” When asked how Radharani could be Prabhu’s Guru, particularly when Prabhu is the incarnation of Supreme Godhead – Bhagwan SriKrishna who is the Jagadguru or the supreme guru, Acharya Dr. Mahanambrataji explained as follows to one of his disciples.
It is SHE and only SHE, Radharani, who could be his guru as Lord Krishna himself also accepts ShriRadha as his guru. He quoted Krishna saying –”Radhika je Premguru aami shisya nat, Sada ama nana nritye nachay udbhat” (Chaitanya Charitamrita, Adileela, 4th Parichhed) & “Aama hoitey guni baro jagatey asombhav, Ekali Radhatey taha kori anubhav” (-do-) meaning thereby that SriKrishna agrees that He has got to learn about Prem or Divine Love from Her and under this power of love of ShriRadha, He just keeps dancing at Her tunes and does just whatever She likes Him to do (ref. 77th sloka, 8th sarga, Gobinda Leelamrita). SriKrishna is the Loved One for everybody and being the subject or “Bishay” of love fails to own it as much as His lovers do, who are the “Ashray” of love, the greatest of them being ShriRadha. Thus the treasure of deepest love, an endless ocean of true love, an ever-increasing embodiment of profound love can only be seen in ShriRadha whom Sri Krishna accepts as His guru.
