(Srimati Radharani, Vrindavan)
"First you have to worship Rādhārāṇī. If you go through Rādhārāṇī... Therefore in Vṛndāvana you will see all devotees, they will address one another, 'Jaya Rādhe!' Still. Because they know that 'If Rādhārāṇī is pleased, if I can please Rādhārāṇī...' Rādhārāṇī is presented, the original pleasure potency, always absorbed in thought of Kṛṣṇa. So anyone who comes before Rādhārāṇī to serve Kṛṣṇa, oh, She becomes so pleased, 'Oh, here is a devotee of Kṛṣṇa.' She immediately recommends, 'Kṛṣṇa, oh, here is a devotee. He is better than Me.' This is Rādhārāṇī. I may be a, not devotee. I may be most fallen rascal. But if I try to reach Kṛṣṇa through Rādhārāṇī, then my business is successful. Therefore we should worship Rādhārāṇī first. That is our business. Instead of offering directly one flower to Kṛṣṇa, you just put it in the hands of Rādhārāṇī: 'My mother Rādhārāṇī, Jagan-mātā, if you kindly take this flower and offer it to Kṛṣṇa.' 'Oh,' Rādhārāṇī says, 'Oh, you have brought a flower?' Kṛṣṇa said, patraṁ puṣpaṁ phalaṁ toyaṁ yo me bhaktyā prayacchati, but don't try to offer Kṛṣṇa directly. Just offer through Rādhārāṇī. It will be very much appreciated by Rādhārāṇī."
