Story of Radha Offering Charanamrit to Sri Krishna to Cure Him

The story of Radha offering Charanamrit to Sri Krishna shows the unparalleled love and faith that Radha had in Sri Krishna. One day Sri Krishna had fallen sick and no medicine was able to cure him. Sri Krishna then told the Gopis of Vrindavan that there is cure for his illness. Sri Krishna asked gopis to give him Charanamrit . He told them that if he drinks the water used to wash the feet of his param bhakt (supreme devotee) then he will be cured. The gopis were now confused.

See the good side of the people to have a healthy and peaceful relationship. Charity is never a good way to help the poor. If you really want to help someone focus on providing them with the opportunity to flourish using their talent and hard work. Help a child by helping it to learn. Do not thrust money in the hands of the child and think you have done your charity. I do not kill animals and eat them. I am against the violence against all living beings.
