There are many-many stories about Radha-Krishna which we have heard over the years and have not only fascinated us but continue to influence us even today. You must have heard many stories of Radha Krishna's Raas. Today we are going to tell you a story in which Radha had cursed a tree due to which it is said that even today fruits do not ripen on that tree. Let us know more about this interesting story.
5500 year old temple
There are many temples dedicated to Radha Krishna in Vrindavan where devotees come from far and wide to visit and worship. Every temple of Lord Krishna is significant. One of these temples is Imlitala Temple which is believed to be about 5500 years old. There is a tamarind tree near this temple. There are many stories and beliefs associated with this tree. It is said that Chaitanya Mahaprabhu had chanted the name of Shri Krishna under this tree some 500 years back. The place represents the intense love during separation of Radha and Krishna.
Why did Radha Rani curse the tree?
In Dwapar Yuga this tree is said to be bearing tamarind fruits in abundance. According to religious stories, once Radha Rani was passing under a tamarind tree in Yamuna after bathing and adorning herself when a tamarind fell from the tree due to which Radha ji's foot slipped and she fell down hurting herself. Her leg started to bleed and her makeup was also spoilt. Apart from this, her alta also got washed away. This meant that she not only hurt herself but was also late in going to meet Sri Krishna.
Due to this reason the fruit does not ripen
After her makeup was spoiled, Radha Rani became very angry and cursed the tamarind tree that it will never be able to bear any fruits. It is said that due to this curse, fruits do not ripen on the tamarind tree even after hundreds of years.
Other stories related to this tree
As per the religious legends, while performing the Sharad Purnima (full moon night) rasa dance with Lord Krishna and other gopis, Sri Radha Rani left the dance and disappeared from there. Lord Krishna, not finding Radha Ji was filled with an intense feeling of separation. Knowing of Imli Tala as the favourite spot of Radha Rani, Lord Krishna in that ecstatic mood of separation sat under the Imli tree chanting her name. He was so deeply absorbed in her thoughts that his body soon assumed the Gaur Varna (golden body colour) of Sri Radha Rani.
But very soon Radhi Rani reappeared and Lord Krishna was delighted and soon resumed his original body colour. That’s when Lord Krishna foretold Shri Radha Rani about his next incarnation as Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, in which he will be having golden body colour.
