While the Buddhists aimed at achievement of spiritual bliss by extinction of
passion, the Vaishnavas believed that passion was a natural force, and that
instead of being extinguished, it should be sublimated into prema, or divine
love. Thus the emotions are transformed from the sensual to the spiritual,
and human passions merge into the great sea of mystic love. Jayadeva's epic
poem the Gita Govinda illustrates this very sentiment through the love games
of Radha and Krishna, the divine couple.
This painting illustrates the following verse from the Gita Govinda.
"Paint, O Krishna, with fingers cooler than sandalwood, leaves and flowers
with musk on this breast, which resembles a vase of consecrated water,
crowned with fresh leaves, and fixed near a vernal bower, to propitiate the
God of Love".
