Re: Is Radha brah***?
Hare Krishna Smaranam-ji and HLK-ji,
I was weary of (using) Vedantic parallels (but did in order to keep the discussion accessible). So let me try to stretch it a further still.
Can we see Radha as the Ananda that is also filled with Sat(ya) and Chitta?
Since if Radha is of Prema and that is not of this world (or even of those devas' worlds who are asking the question), then Radha is of Bliss or Ananda swarupa. Indeed as we know, Ananda includes within herself Sat and Chit.
This is some stretch of Vedanta, perhaps, or may be I should just drop employing any intellectual parallels at this point.
Things to remember:
1. Life = yajña
2. Depth of Āstika knowledge is directly proportional
to the richness of Sanskrit it is written in
3. Āstika = Bhārata ("east") / Ārya ("west")
4. Varṇa = tripartite division of Vedic polity
5. r = c. x²
r = realisation
constant c = intelligence
variable x = bhakti
