Hinduism - What Is Radhavallabh Sampraday?

 

Radhavallabh Sampraday is a day dedicated to Radhavallabh.

Vaishnavas are a religious society founded by the sixteenth-century poet-saint Harivamsh.

Its members are followers (bhakta) of the deity Vishnu (that is, Vaishnavas).

Harivamsh had strong feelings about Radha's standing, which his community has maintained.

Earlier poetry often depicted Radha as the god Krishna's adulterous mistress, but the Radhavallabhans saw her as his legitimate wife and a goddess with equal rank to Krishna.

Krishna and his reputation as the "beloved of Radha" were the center of their devotion (Radhavallabh).
