Srila Naryana Gosvami
Maharaja that without Srimati Radhika Krsna would be zero, or
nirvisesa-brahma (an impersonal God without qualities), and having
determined from his understanding of Jaiva-dharma that even without Her,
Krsna is the Supreme Person with independent desire, Sripada Nemi
Maharaja asks:] Jaiva-dharma states that Krsna is not impersonal
brahman. He is purusa (the Supreme Personality of Godhead); He has
desire. You said we will have to reconcile. I would like to know how we
reconcile these two.
It is believed that fasting on Radhashtami
appeases Goddess Lakshmi. Fasting on this day brings Peace,prosperity,
wealth health in blessings.
