It begins in
Vaikunta. The time of action was a pleasant dusk. Sri Mahavishnu was seen absorbed
then in the colourful spectacle of the west, bathed in the mellowed light of the
setting Sun, caressed by cool fragrant breeze, coming over His Nandanodyan, when
Sachidevi, wife of Devendra stood before him. All alone in her full splendour.
Up from his dream world, he requested with all decorum due, to inform him the
reason of her surprising visit, unattended by any companion. And without
appointment at it. Quivering all through, as shyness enveloped her whole frame,
she let out that she had been pining for amorous union with him, though she
knew, it was unbecoming on her part to entertain such lewd desire and it was
rather sinful too. Even though she tried all means to suppress that impious
instinct, the temptation of his jaganmohanakara was irresistibly too much for
her, and so there she was. But Vishnu politely and sincerely rejected her
advances, as it would prove disgraceful to both. Moved by the moist eyes, he
said that her desire would be fulfilled in her next birth, when he would be born
as Krishna and she as Radha. Despaired Sachi devi left him at once.
second scene shifts to Dwaraka. As ordained she became Radha, and Lord
Mahavishnu incarnated as Krishna on a mighty mission. In Mathura, off their
houses they moved together before
Krishna's marriage with Rukmini, and in Dwaraka after marriage.
