About the Cover

The picture on the cover is that of Sri Rupa, who was a follower of Sri Ciatanya Mahaprabu. He was a topmost rasika devotee and the King of all poets.

Here he is seen in a humble posture in conversation with Emperor Akbar. He was captured in this mood about 500 years ago by the Emperor's artist. On his inner right thigh we see Baba Rupa scrawled in Persian. Since time had taken its toll on the picture, it required a brief retouch. The original is mostly carefully stored in Sri Radhakund.
