How was Radha tested for her bond with children since she did not have any?

[Ms. Thrylokya asked:- You told that if a devotee leaves the family bonds and becomes ineligible to face the tests of three strongest worldly bonds, such a devotee cannot be declared having passed these three tests. Unless the test is faced, pass or failure cannot be declared. In such case, Radha did not allow her husband to touch her and avoided issues. Then, Radha also becomes equal to the above said devotee. How to answer this point on behalf of Radha?]

Swami replied:- The devotee got married and got children. He went to the forest leaving the existing family. Regarding such a devotee, our criticism applies. But, the case of Radha is totally different from such a devotee. She did not allow her husband to touch her and avoided the fortune of getting issues. This is far far greater than passing the test of the bond with an already born issue. Both cases are extremely different and opposite like east and west. Hence, you cannot compare both these cases in this point.
