Krishna and Jarasandha
Krishna and Jarasandha
Description
Jarasandha was the emperor of Aryavarta (north India) at the time when the Pandavas were ruling at Indraprastha. Most of the kings of North India acknowledged his suzerainty out of fear. Many of those who did not, had been imprisoned by him. To establish the supremacy of the Pandavas it was necessary to subdue Jarasandha.

Though Jarasandha was considered invincible, he had a vital flaw and Krishna knew this. Jarasandha had a split, personality, in a purely physical sense. He was born split and it was the (black) magical touch of a sorceress that had joined the two halves to complete the man. This joint was at once the source of his strength and his weakness.

Mighty men of mythology, be they of the East or of the West, were always characterized by at vital flaw which, in reverse, would turn out to be a vital asset, Karma's Kavacha (armour) and Achilles' heels are classic examples. The secret of the heroes' strength often remained locked in this dual nature of their gifts. Only one who knew the secret could vanquish them. Jarasandha's weak point was known only to Krishna. How he brings about the fall of the mighty and evil emperor is narrated in this Amar Chitra Katha, based on the Bhagawat Purana arid the Mahabharata.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
