Srimati Radharani is the Supreme Goddess. She is most always seen with Lord Krishna. It is described that She is the chief associate and devotee of Lord Krishna, and topmost of all goddesses. Her name means that She is the most excellent worshiper of Lord Krishna. However, She is also an expansion of the Lord's energy. Since She is also an extension of Krishna, She is the feminine aspect of God. Thus, in the Gaudiya Vaishnava tradition, God is both male and female. They are one, but Krishna expands into two, Himself and Radharani, for the sake of divine loving pastimes. If They remained as one, then there is no relationship, there are no pastimes, and there can be no dynamic exchange of love. (Caitanya-caritamrita, Adi-lila, 4.55-56)

rahah patacaryah kuruta kim idam yauvata-madasphutam yushmabhir me vipinam apanam nasitam adahato vallary-arthe tanu-tatim avasyam phala-kritekucan vo lunthamah kisalaya-pade cadhara-kulam
"My dear thieves, what are You doing in this solitary place? Intoxicated by youthfulpassion You are destroying My priceless forest. I have no other course but to arrestYou for this crime. For the crime of breaking many creepers I shall now arrest allYour bodies, for the crime of picking fruits I shall confiscate Your breasts, and forthe crime of picking many budding twigs I shall imprison Your lips."

iti nisamya bhru-bhangam avalokantyam lalitayam anyah sa-smitam ucuhvadantyah smo nunam tava kitava satyam hitam idamvrithatopam hitva vraja jhatati nandisvara-puramna janishe kim tam prakhara-lalita-vikrama-tatimyaya te vanyantah kshapitam asakrit paurusha-yasah
Hearing these words, Lalita knitted her eyebrows and angrily stared at Krishna.Some of the other gopis smiled and spoke the following words."Dear liar, please listen, for the truth we speak is for Your benefit. Give up this falsepride and go at once to Nandisvara-pura. Do You not know of the great prowess of harsh Lalita who can forever destroy Your good reputation in this forest?"
