Although Rādhā’s love is pure like a mirror, its purity increases at every moment
CC Adi 4.136, Translation: Thinking in this way, Lord Kṛṣṇa was curious to taste that love. His eager desire for that love increasingly blazed in His heart.
CC Adi 4.137, Translation: That is one desire. Now please hear of another. Seeing His own beauty, Lord Kṛṣṇa began to consider.
CC Adi 4.138, Translation: “My sweetness is wonderful, infinite and full. No one in the three worlds can find its limit.
CC Adi 4.139, Translation: “Only Rādhikā, by the strength of Her love, tastes all the nectar of My sweetness.
CC Adi 4.140, Translation: “Although Rādhā’s love is pure like a mirror, its purity increases at every moment.
CC Adi 4.141, Translation: “My sweetness also has no room for expansion, yet it shines before that mirror in newer and newer beauty.
CC Adi 4.142, Translation: “There is constant competition between My sweetness and the mirror of Rādhā’s love. They both go on increasing, but neither knows defeat.
CC Adi 4.143, Translation: “My sweetness is always newer and newer. Devotees taste it according to their own respective love.
CC Adi 4.145, Translation and Purport: “If I deliberate on a way to taste it, I find that I hanker for the position of Rādhikā.” Kṛṣṇa’s attractiveness is wonderful and unlimited. No one can know the end of it. Śrīmatī Rādhārāṇī alone can relish such extensiveness from Her position in the āśraya category. The mirror of Śrīmatī Rādhārāṇī’s transcendental love is perfectly clear, yet it appears clearer and clearest in the transcendental method of understanding Kṛṣṇa. In the mirror of Rādhārāṇī’s heart, the transcendental features of Kṛṣṇa appear increasingly new and fresh. In other words, the attraction of Kṛṣṇa increases in proportion to the understanding of Śrīmatī Rādhārāṇī. Each tries to supersede the other. Neither wants to be defeated in increasing the intensity of love. Desiring to understand Rādhārāṇī’s attitude of increasing love, Lord Kṛṣṇa appeared as Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu.
