Appearance of Sri Radhika

Standard

I used to wonder how Sri Radhika appeared even after after I heard two stories. One in that she appeared in Barsana on a lotus flower in the middle of Vrsabhanu kunda, later I heard another story from a devotee  and asked where he got it. He did not know. Then I found it later in one of  Srila Rupa Gosvami’s plays. Also Srila BV Narayana Maharaja said that she appeared out of the left side of Sri Krishna. I am trying to find all shastric references to these statements. Maybe someone could help me? In the meantime, before Radhastami I will write more about my own researches. It is early now, so I am just chanting the mahamantra with emphasis on her name. devi krsnamayi prokta, radhika para-devata / sarva-laksmi-mayi sarva-kantih sammohini para: “The transcendental goddess Srimati Radhika is the direct counterpart of Sri Krsna, and the central figure for all goddesses of fortune. She possesses all the charm to attract the all-attractive Supreme Personality, and she is the primeval internal potency of the Lord.”
