Srimati Radharani said to Her constant companion Visakha: "My dear friend, if Krsna is unkind to Me, there will be no need for you to cry, for it wiIl not be due to any fault of yours. I shall then have to die, but afterwards please do one thing for Me: to observe My funeral ceremony, place My body with its arms embracing a tamala tree like creepers so that I may remain forever in Vrndavana undisturbed. That is My last request."(Vidagdha-madhava 2.47)
