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.

Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.

I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
