Can a devotee get Krishna & Radharani as Parents in Goloka also?
Two devotees asked similar questions:
(1) A male devotee (Name hidden) asked like this:
“Hare krishna prabhuji please accept my humble obeisance. First of all very very thanks for your service of daily posting and i read all of your posts daily which are very nice. I have a very much childish question so please ignore my immaturity so my question is :-
Is it possible to stay as a small child in goloka with radha and krishna as our mother and father and play with them as our parents.
Also will they behave with us just as mother and father behave/play/care…. with their small children.
Also Will they get time for their little child in goloka as they both would be busy in performing their lilas/pastimes or will they both assume a form which will be with me all the time (like lord Krishna assumed 16100 forms in dwarka).
On your site prabhuji i have read about 5 bhavas towards krishna like sakhya , madhurya , vatsalya…..etc and i can’t relate my bhav with above five bhavas so I got a little bit confusion
So please answer my question as i would feel like radha and krishna are answering my questions directly via yourself so please Very very humble request to you prabhuji answer my question
Also koti koti pranam to you prabhuji for your wonderful service towards all devotees. Hare Krishna.”
(2) Ayush asked like this:
“Hare krishna prabhuji. I have a question regarding krishna consciousness. my question is: If i love mother radharani and father krishna as i am their child, when i go back to home back to godhead, will i get them both as my mother and father? Trying to ask that will mother radharani and father krishna both expand themselves as my mother and father and accept me as their child in goloka?”
You want to be the child permanently in Goloka and expect Krishna and Radharani to play with you as parents.
Krishna is the source of all the relations. He can be considered in all the bhawas including the bhavas not mentioned.
KRISHNA IS THE SEED GIVER FOR ALL CREATIONS.
So, He is the father of entire creations.

If Krishna is our father, naturally, Radharani is naturally our mother.
Radharani is Jaganmatha. Eternal Consort of Krishna.
Considering Krishna and Radharani as Parents is a reverred bhawa. We should approach them with all the respects.
At the same time, when we consider Krishna as our child, Radharani is not usually connected with Krishna in that child form.
And, Considering Krishna and Radharani as Parents is possible.
Srimati Radharani is the mother of the universe.
She is the spiritual mother of all the souls.
(THE GREATNESS OF GETTING KRISHNA THROUGH RADHARANI! READ HERE!)
Considering Krishna and Radharani as Parents shows that we also honour the motherhood of Radharani as a sacred symbol of Purity, Selflessness, Caring, Love, etc.
We chant Hare Krishna daily.
Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare,
Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare.
In this manthra, ‘Hare’ means Radharani.
We cry for the mercy of Radharani to always engage us in their service.
Service means, even serving them considering Krishna and Radharani as parents.
Even Krishna can be considered as both our father and mother as said by acharyas.
(Is worshiping Radharani without Krishna advisable or not? READ HERE!)
SRILA BHAKTI VINODA THAKKUR SAYS:
aparadha-shunya ha’ye laha krishna-nama
krishna mata, krishna pita, krishna dhana-prana
Meaning: “Being free of offense, chant the holy name of Krishna. Krishna is our mother, our father and the treasure of our life.”
If Krishna can be considered as both mother and father, why can’t we consider Radharani as our mother?
In whatever bhawa you worship Krishna and Radharani, they make themselves available in the same form even after we go back to their kingdom.
Krishna can present Himself to us in any bhawa we want to see Him.
So, it is possible to get Krishna and Radharani as Parents in Goloka also.
And, you have asked whether you can permanently play with them and vice versa.
Why not? If they become your parents, they will play with you. Of course, for every devotee, they can take a new form as Krishna took for 16,108 queens.
Every devotee has different type of emotions and bhawa for Krishna. I am more attracted to Krishna’s Child form as well as His Guru status while preaching Bhagavad Gita because I was reformed by Bhagavad Gita Only. Without Krishna’s Gita, I am not here to be with all of you.
Similarly, you too can maintain your favourable bhawa with Krishna.
Be relieved and proceed with your bhawa.
