The Bhagvata Purana and the Gita Govinda propound that the self unites with the supreme only in love. Krishna stands for the supreme being and the gopis for the self, their love of him being the supreme act.

The rectangular painting is vertically divided into three sections. The middle section, narrower than the other two, has Radha & Krishna standing on a lotus pedestal. Lost in each other's love, they are oblivious to the sakhis standing with a fan and flywhisk, waving them with respect. The artist paints the lotus pond in the foreground in black, perhaps, for chromatic effect.

The two side sections have the rasa-mandala imagery. What sets the two apart are the middle circular spaces. The left one shows the inseparable brothers, Krishna and Balarama, their contrasting bodies, in a gesture of unity. The middle of the right rasa-mandala depicts Krishna lifting mount Govardhana on his little finger. The petal look-alike of the mandala shows each gopi with Krishna. The rasa dance is a completely spiritual performance. Krishna, the supreme mystic expanded himself in many forms & stood beside each gopi.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma

Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.

I was very happy to find these great Hindu texts of the ancient times. Been a fan of both Mahabhratham and Ramayanam since I was a small boy. Now the whole family can enjoy these very important cultural texts at home.
