महारास  हिन्दी देवनागरी में पढ़ें।

maharas bhagavan shrikrishn se sambndhit hai. solah kalaon se paripoorn bhagavan shrikrishn ka avatar mukhyat: annd pradhan mana jata hai. unake annd bhav ka poorn vikas unaki madhur ras lila men hua hai. yah madhur ras lila unaki divy ras krida hai, jo shrringar aur ras se poorn hote hue bhi is sthool jagath ke prem v vasana se mukt hai. is rasalila men ve apane antarng vishuddh bhakton[1] ke sath sharath ki ratriyon men vilas karate hain. krishn ki is rasalila men do dharaen hain, jo donon or se ati hain aur ekakar ho jati hain. har kshan naya milan, naya roop, naya ras aur nee tripti- yahi prem-ras ka advait svaroop hai aur isi ka nam 'ras' hai.[2]

shrimadbhagavat ke dasaven bhag ke 29ven adhyay ke pratham shlok men likha hai- "bhagavanapi ta ratri: sharadotphullamilaka." jo yah snket karata hai ki bhagavan ke sath rasalila ke lie jivatma ka divy sharir aur divy man hona anivary hai. doosare shabdon men, is madhur ras lila men shuddh jiv ka brahm se vilasapoorn milan hai, jisamen laukik prem v kam anshamatr bhi nahin hai. shuddh jiv ka arth hai- maya ke avaran se rahit jiv. aise jiv ka hi brahm se milan hota hai. isilie gopiyon ke sath shrikrishn ne maharas se poorv 'chiraharan' ki lila ki thi. jivatma ka paramatma ke samane koee parda nahin rah sakata. parda maya men hi hai. parda hone se vasana aur agyan atma ko dhak dete hain aur paramatma ko door karate hain. chiraharan se gopiyon ka ukt moh bhng hua. jiv ka brahm se milan sahaj nahin hota. vah jab paramatma ke nikat pahunchata hai, tab ve usase poochhate hain- mere pas kyon aya hai? jaise krishn ne gopiyon se kaha- "kaho, kaise ana hua is ghor ratri men? apane pati, putr, sage-sambandhi, guru aur priyajanon ki seva karana tumhara dharm hai. tum laut jao apane ghar." gopiyan svarg-moksh-kam adi se rahit hain. unhonne uttar diya- "padau padn n chalatastav padamoolad , yam: kathn brajamadho karavam kin va.."[3] arthat "he govind! hamare panv apake charan-kamalon ko chhodakar ek pag bhi pichhe hatane ko taiyar nahin hain. ham braj ko lauten to kaise ? aur yadi ham lauten bhi to man ke bina vahan ham kya karen ? tab krishn ne apane antim prashn men gopiyon ko unake sntan moh ki or ishara karate hue kaha- "to kya tumhen apane putron ka bhi moh nahin hai ?" gopiyon ka uttar tha- "he mohan! ap men hi hamara moh sarvopari hai, kyonki putradi men bhi ap hi sthit hain. aisi kaun si vastu hai, jo apase alag hai?[2]

krishn unake prem men ram ge aur unake sath nrity karane lage. nrity karate hue krishn ne mahasoos kiya ki gopiyon ko unake sath nrity karane, unhen pa lene ka abhiman hone laga hai. lekin krishn aur radha ke is ras men jaise daihik vasana ki koee jagah nahin hai, usi tarah kisi abhiman ke lie bhi jagah nahin hai. gopiyon men vyapt abhiman ke is bhav ko door karane ke lie ve ekaek unake bich se arntadhyan ho ge. aise men gopiyan apane priyatam ko n dekhakar svayn ko bhool jati hain aur krishnamayi hokar unhin ki poorv lilaon ka anukaran karane men lin ho jati hain. ve shrikrishn ki chal-dhal, has-vilas aur chitavan adi men unake saman hi banakar sukh pati hain. yah dekhakar krishn dravit ho jate hain aur pun: unake bich prakat hokar kahate hain, main tumhare tyag aur priti ka rini hoon aur anant janmon tak rini bana rahoonga. ve apane hath age pasarate hue kahate hain- "ao, maharas karen!" krishn pratyek do gopiyon ke bich men prakat hokar solah hajar gopiyon ke sath nrity karane men lin ho ge. sabhi gopiyon ke hath unake hath men the. yah maharas dekhate-dekhate brahma[4] sochane lage ki krishn aur gopiyan nishkam to hain, phir bhi deh ka bhan bhoolakar is prakar krida karane se kya vyavastha, shastr aur maryada ka ullnghan nahin hoga? ve yah nahin samajh sake ki prem ka ras, vilas nahin, dharm ka phal hai, yani prem ka phal hai. krishn ne achanak sabhi solah hajar gopiyon ko apana svaroop de diya aur sarvatr krishn hi krishn dikhaee dene lage. gopiyan hain kahan ? maharas prem ka advait svaroop hai, jisamen bhagavath svaroop ho jane ke bad jiv ka svatv nahin rahata hai.
