Radha Ashtami Vrat Katha: Story of Radha Ashtami

Devarshi Narada, the incarnation of Shri Krishna Bhakti, once bowed at the feet of Lord Sadashiva and asked who among Sri Radha Devi Lakshmi, Devapatni, Mahalakshmi, Saraswati, intimate learning, Vaishnavi nature, Vedakanya, Munikanya, etc.?

In response to this question, the Lord said that what to say about anyone, even a Mahalaxmi cannot stand in front of the beauty of his feet, so to describe the form, qualities and beauty of Shri Radha with one face. I also have no power in all the three worlds. His beauty is also going to fascinate Shri Krishna, who fascinates the world,

That is why I cannot describe him with an infinite face. On the eighth day of the intense fortnight of Bhadrapada month, Shri Radhaji's feet are seen. It is not possible for anyone to describe the beauty of their feet.
