Radha waiting: the themes
Her work is not religious. It’s just a mere representation of the world around her. In the articulated Hindu theological symbolism. Rādhā represents the total devotion for God, Kṛṣṇa, and the abandonment, loving and unconditional, to him (prema bhakti). It’s a feeling that represents the highest principle of the entire universe. This form of loving abandonment is due to the power of spiritual and transcendent “pleasure”. In this sense, for some theologies, Rādhā itself is a manifestation of God, Kṛṣṇa, or of his power when he intends to manifest “pleasure”, and this manifestation is to be understood as timeless.
