In this class given on Śrī Rādhāṣṭamī on 1st September 2006, Śrīla Narasiṅgha Mahārāja first speaks about the divine appearance of the Lord and His associates and how the topmost devotees always recognize Kṛṣṇa’s arrangement. Sometimes however, due to līlā, He will bewilder even His devotees.

Mahārāja then gives a brief history of the līlā of the appearance of Balarāma, Kṛṣṇa and particularly about Śrīmatī Rādhārāṇī and how She was found on a lotus and was initially blind and mute.

He then explains how bhakti and śraddhā stem from Rādhārāṇī, and from these two elements, śaraṇāgati appears. Mahārāja also explains how one cannot worship Kṛṣṇa but simultaneously neglect Rādhā.

Narasiṅgha Mahārāja then discusses the 64 devotional arts that Rādhārāṇī is expert in.
