    Re: Meera

    Saint Meera spent her last years on earth on a pilgrimage, from village to village in North India. Nobody knows for certain, but some records says that she stopped in Dwarka.


    When Maharana Udhai Singh tried to bring her back to Mewar she refused and asked if she could spend that night in a temple of Krishna. The next morning they couldn't find her anymore anywhere.


    It's believed that her bhakti made her body and soul merge with the image of Krishna in that temple, thus attaining liberation.

    Yes. Her legend says that her brother in law Vikramaditya tried to kill her many times, one of them with poison. He mixed poison with the prasad that was offered to Sri Krishna by Meera and when she eated it, Krishna had already transformed it in to Amrita.

    Vikramaditya did that because besides having a cruel nature, he didn't liked her devotion because it frequently led her to mix with commoners and forget feminine modesty. As a ruler, Vikramaditya didn't like one of his family behaving like that.

    Her sister-in-law, Uda bai, also hated her and is said to have spread defamatory gossip about Meera and also tried to starve her to death by locking her in a room without food for many days, but Sri Krishna gave food to her everyday.

    This question I can't answer, I don't have much knowledge of Radha-Krishna story.

    All I know is that Sri Krishna left Vrindavan and Radha very early and set to His journey of protecting Dharma, so they never got to marry.

    I believe that the answer is that Krishna and Radha are one and hence Krishna has not need to marry Him-self.

    Perhaps the following link may help you to understand my answer from a gaudiya-vaishnava perspective:

    In fact they are married. The wedding was conducted by Brahma (one of the three gods: Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva) who played the role of a priests for this purpose.
    This is described in the Brahma vaivarta Purana, Canto Four, Chapter Fifteen:
    Sri Radha-Krsna-vivaha
    The Wedding of Sri Radha-Krsna

    Namaste Orlando ji,
    I read that article, thank you for make me familiar with gaudiya vaishnavas perspective!
    Regards

    Namaste Brahma jijnasa ji,
    really? I don't know that! If it is mention in purana that Radha and Krishna got married then why most of the people say that they don't get married with each other!
