A Festival of Krishna Under The Kadamba Tree: Painting a Divine Love (With DVD)
Description
About The Book

To wait under the Kadamba tree is to invite Krishna into our lives, prepare for his arrival with anticipation and adornment, and then when we hear his flute, surrender ourselves completely to him so that we may be touched by h is mellifluous love, a love so divine that we forget our mortal world and enter the magical and charmed world of his love. The Kadamba tree is Krishna’s tree, of all the trees in Vrindavana it is here that he plays his flute and under its canopy gopis gather, and when we wait there along with them, we do so with the bhava or feeling of a gopi, a bhava that seeks the sheer ecstasy of the heart and the joyous trembling of romance, and not the splendors of the world and the thrills of material success a spirit that is prepared to turn its back on prapancha or the world of duties and tasks, for here under the Kadamba tree we must put away the burdens and demands of the world and like gopis leave our mundane chores behind even if they are unfinished, like the birds that gather in its shade we come asking for no worldly boons but merely to sing of eh miracle of love, like the blossoms that carry no thorns but merely bring the perfumed wind and tehn fall at Krishn;s feet to become his vanamala, under the Kadamba tree our breath should carry no pious words or petitions but just the simple melody of love songs that we will offer to his lotus feet, under that tree of love we will be like the cows that are drawn to Krishna for after all he is Govind and will become like the bees that hover around him for he is also Madhusudana the stealer of honey for under the Kadamba tree we will adore kanha the dark one, of the colour of the clouds of ashadha and of the frolicking Yamuna. And let our hearts be stolen by him, for he is Mohana, the only who allures, and only then will we really find him and know his love, and in finding him we will discover ourselves.

 

About The Author

Harsha V.Dehejia, takes us on a journey of the loves of Krishna, his lilas, kridas and his madhurya and above all the rasa lila. But Krishna is not only for the royalty and the nobility, he belongs to the people, the potter and the puppeteer, the bride and the mother for he is celebrated at village fairs and in chowks. Equally the modern artist does not remain untouched by the magic of Krishna and depicts him on h is palette. This journey is a festival of heart throbbing love and pulsating romance, of tender moments of longing and belonging and ultimately of listening to the flute of Krishna within oneself for that is where ends.

In the film on DVD Ateliers of Love Harsha V.Dehjia take us on an enchanting journey of discovering the patrons and the palaces where Krishna paintings were made and where even today when the winds blows through the Kadamba tree we hear Krishna’s flute. We see the palaces of Mandu where we hear the foot falls of Baz Banadur and RupaMati, the forts of Kangra where Sansar Chad’s foot prints are still seen and visit the enchanted environs of Kishangarh where we hear the hushed voices of Savant Singh and Bani Thnai. And as the journey ends we are privy to some of the most glorious moments of five magnificent centuries of Krishna painting.

Harsha V. Dehejia has a double doctorate, one in Medicine and the other in Ancient Indian Culture, both from Mumbai University. He is also a member, by examination, of the Royal College of Physicians of Glasgow, London and Canada. He is Professor of Indian Studies at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada. He is also a Physician in Ottawa. His publications include: Advaita of Art, Parvatidarpana, Despair and Modernity, Leaves of a Pipal Tree and Gods Beyond Temples (Motilal anarasidass); Parvati, Goddess of Love, The Flute and the Lotus: Romantic Moments in Indian Poetry and Painting and Celebrating Krishna : Sacred Words and Sensuous Images (Mapin); A Celebration of Love, The Romantic Heroine in the Indian (Roli).

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.
Evelyn, Desoto, Texas.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
Andreas, Germany.
