Ras Leela is an important part of Manipuri classical dance. Manipuri people are devotees of Vishnu and they depict themselves as Vaishnavas. So, in most of their dances, they refer to goddess Radha and Lord Krishna. In fact, Ras Leela, as a dance form is mainly surviving in Manipur. The Manipuris observe it as a very special occasion as the dancers perform Ras Leela.

Two young dancers portray Lord Krishna and Radha in Ras Leela. Both dancers are members of artistic families. Vaishnavism expressed itself in the new very important ritual dance-drama, the Ras , a creation of the Meiteis conceived by King Bhagyachandra of Manipur who was himself a saintly devotee of Shri Krishna. This king, inspired by a religious dream, caused a statue of Krishna, cut from a jackfruit tree, to be placed in a new palace temple called Manipur Govindaji. In the Mandop arena attached to this temple, centering around the statue, with his own daughter playing the part of Krishna s beloved Radha, the first Ras dance-drama was performed and it has now become the heritage of Meiteis who perform it yearly.
