"Sita floats on an ocean of tears. Sita stands as the radical interface of love and suffering. Sita exists only for love. She personifies loyalty. She incarnates devotion. On an archetypal level, she stands for the feminine principle of loving submission -submission to the masculine, submission to the divine, submission to life itself." From "Awakening Shakti" by Sally Kempton
"Radha is the goddess of lovers and desperate romantics. The beloved mistress of the youthful god Krishna, Radha's passionate, erotic, drama is one of the world's great myths of love and separation. The Radha energy is present wherever there is passionate love and the wish to merge with the beloved." From "Awakening Shakti" by Sally Kempton
