The Vishnu Purana has an interesting account of Krishna & Balarama's birth. It says that the Supreme Lord plucked off two hairs, one black and one white – the black impersonated as Krishna and the white as Balarama. They were inseparable all through their childhood and youth.

This narrow, rectangular frieze shows the gopis displaying their love and affection for the brothers leaving Vrindavana for Mathura. Though important to the theme, the artist does not paint the chariot carrying Krishna and Balarama, in the middle. It is part of the whole composition. The scenario is led by the cowherds, walking alongside their cows, carrying pots of milk and butter. Facing the opposite direction, towards the oncoming chariot, is a group of gopis, making an attempt to stall the chariot. Behind are also some more cowherdesses, wanting to have a better glimpse of their beloved Krishna and Balarama. The brothers are trying to pacify the beautiful agitated maidens, not successfully though.

The background to this pleasing painting is pink with stylized trees trying to block the effect of pure pink. When talking of colour, it is noteworthy that the artist has painted the horses – in black and the other in white, true to the colors of Krishna and Balarama.

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.

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 !
