The Bhagavata Purana consolidates the several myths into an impressive narrative, which has held the imagination of artists and devotees alike for a millennia or more. Jayadeva wrote a poem titled Gita Govinda in the twelfth century, in which he introduced the character of Radha, a special beloved of Krishna. There was but a faint mention of her in the Bh?gavata Purana. Jayadeva's poem gave a new twist to the perennial theme of Krishna and the gopis (cowherdesses). From then on, a further coalescing of Krishna as Vishnu and of Radha as Sri and Lakshmi and Shakti (female energy personified) took place.
