Description

Krishnaya Tubhyam Namah

It is an ancient tradition that that stemmed forth from the Vedic period that gave us the word Namah. In the passage of time, it came to be interpreted as prostrations or salutations, Namaskar.

In its virginal meaning, it was a term that came in vogue by the spoliation (lopa) of a term that is repeated very often in the vedic rituals, as the pundits chant the mantras and offer the oblations to the sacred fire: 'Agne idam Na Mama' ("O Lord Fire ! this what I am offering is not mine"). This term Na mama (not mine) expresses the mental attitude of the devotees; everything belongs to thee O Lord – I am only offering to thee what is already owned by you. This spirit of total dedication, complete surrender, supreme selflessness is that which is expressed by the term Na mama.

When this term came to be oft repeated by the mass of people the term got 'defaced'; when coins are minted and sent into circulation, after a time in their wear and tear of the people's handling, they do become worn-out and defaced – so too, words in living languages.

This Na mama became Nama; the middle ma appears to have got lost in the stampede of centuries, in the cascade of general conversations. Thus when we say Krishnaya Tubhyam Nama, we mean, nothing is mine O Lord, everything is Thine and I thus totally surrender to thee my beloved Sri Krishna. Here surrender is not of your hands or legs, your activities or relationships, your responsibilities or duties; the surrender here is exactly like you surrender yourself into the rising fumes of sleep. It is man's attempt to tune himself totally to the higher and thus act in the world, centred in the Krishna factor in himself.

Bhagawata is a unique literature and it has in its alchemy of poetry and philosophy the magic of smuggling the devotes across the frontiers of the finite into the timeless kingdom ruled by the Blue Boy of Brindaban. I am sure this volume can waft the mischievous tunes of His melodious flute into the loving hearts of all devotees everywhere.

Back of the Book

This Supreme Essence born as a mass of Beauty, Music and Joy, dazzling in Wisdom, noisy with Laughter, ever a Master of Circumstances, a King of Events, frisking about in life's melancholy contentions, meeting challenges with daring and confidence, at once a Hero and a Child all rolled in one – this is the perfect God-Man, the Eternal Child of Brindavan.

Testimonials
Thanks again Exotic India! Always perfect! Great books, India's wisdom golden peak of knowledge!!!
Fotis, Greece
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
