Radha is the feminine counterpart of Krishna, the Supreme Being. Often depicted as Krishna's female companion, he and she are in fact One. Together they represent the essence of love transcendental, the original spiritual lovers. As one must transcend one's material body of skin to touch the higher spiritual plane, so one must transcend the material love of skin to touch the higher level of spiritual love, unconditional love.

Srila Prabhupada said, "Krishna consciousness means to be serious and determined to transcend the material attraction between man and woman in order to become attracted to the lotus feet of Radha and Krishna. The sum and substance of material life is attraction for woman. And the sum and substance of spiritual life is attraction for Radha-Krishna."
