Kr̥ṣṇasya draviṇaṁ rādhā rādhāyāḥ draviṇaṁ hariḥ |
Jīvanēna dhanē nityaṁ rādhākr̥ṣṇagatirmama. ||

Meaning: Lord Sri Krishna's full wealth is Sri Radharani and Sri Radharani's full wealth is Sri Krishna, therefore every moment of my life should be spent in the shelter of Sri Radha-Krishna.

Background of Radha janmostsav
Radha janmostsav or Radhashtami is a holy day for Hindus. Krishna Priya Radhaji was born on the eighth day of the Shukla Paksha of Bhadrapada month. Therefore this day is celebrated as Radhashtami. The sacrificial fire of Shri Radhaji Vrishabhanu was revealed from the land. Sri Radha is considered to be the incarnation of Lakshmi. It is mainly celebrated by Krishna devotees.

Who is Radha?
Radha was the most beloved of Lord Krishna. It is said that the worship of Lord Krishna is considered incomplete without worshipping Shri Radha.

Sri Vrindavaneshwari Radha always brings joy to Shri Krishna in Vedas and Puranadi, which is praised as 'Krishna Vallabha'.
In the Shrimad Devi Bhagwat, Shri Narayan has described the imperative of Shri Radha Puja to Narada in the context of the very ancient tradition of 'Shri Radhayai Swaha' Shakraksha Mantra and the remarkable glory. If a person does not worship Shri Radha, then the person does not have the right to worship Lord Krishna. Therefore, all Vaishnavas must pray to Goddess Radha. Therefore, all Vaishnavas must pray to Goddess Radha. Sri Radha is the presiding goddess of Lord Shri Krishna's life, so God remains under them. She Radhan for all the wishes, that is why she has been called Shri Radha.

Puja Bidhi
Radha-Krishna should be worshipped on this day. One should fast for the whole day and do a time of flourishing. After bathing the idol of Shri Radha and Krishna with Panchamrit, make them adorn, offer sacrifices and then offer incense, lamps, flowers etc. Make a pavilion with five colours of powder and make a lotus-shaped hexadeum inside it. In the middle of that lotus, meditate on the Divyasana by setting Sri Radhakrishna's yurtamurti backwards and worship and worship Lord Radhakrishna devoutly.
