(Sri Chaitanya-charitamrita: Adi-lila,1.5)
The loving affairs of Sri Radha and Krishna are the manifestations of the Lord’s internal pleasure potency (hladini shakti). Though they are one by nature, yet they eternally exist as two (Radha and Krishna). Now, these two transcendental identities have again combined into one form as Sri Krishna Chaitanya. I bow down to Him (Lord Chaitanya), who is Krishna Himself, adorned with the mood and complexion of Srimati Radharani.
‘Sri Radha Krishna Tattva’ – The Transcendental truths about Sri Radha and Krishna
I offer my prostrated obeisances again and again unto the indivisible non-dual absolute who is the essence of all truths.That same absolute truth sometimes manifests as two – in the form of Sri Radha and Krishna. While sometimes He manifests Himself as one, as Sri Chaitanya, the supreme being.The Supreme Truth is eternally one without a second, and there is no difference between the Absolute truth and His various energies.Though there is no difference between the Supreme Lord and His energies, yet at the same time, there eternally exists a difference between them. All of the Vedas hence glorify this inconceivable oneness and difference between the Lord and His energies.
