Sweet notes from the alluring flute echoes nectar from his
        lips.
His restless eyes glance, his head sways, earrings play at his
        cheeks.
My heart recalls Hari here in his love dance,
Playing seductively, laughing, mocking me.

                                                                 --- Gita Govinda.

Krishna here strikes his familiar stance with the right leg crossing the upright left leg. While the left foot is placed flat, only the toes of the right touch the lotus base. This posture is known as the 'svastika,' or auspicious pose. This stance is most commonly associated with Krishna.

The bodies of both Radha and Krishna tilt similarly. This particular posture of the body where the head, torso, and legs slant in contrary directions is known as tribhanga. The legs and hips jutt to the right, the trunk to the left, and the neck and head then again gently to the right. It is a lyrical, dreamy, very graceful pose. The three curves formed by the body symbolize the three worlds, upper, lower and middle, better known in Sanskrit as triloka. This is also popularly known as the posture of three bends.

The divine couple stand on a lotus pedestal, attired in similar dhotis, held in place by elaborate girdles. Radha supports Krishna's flute. Both are heavily bejewelled, being adorned with numerous necklaces, bracelets and anklets. A cow peeps from behind the duo. The cow has been since time immemorial an important auspicious animal in the annals of Indian thought. But surprisingly, its representation has been rare and far between in the art of the subcontinent. The answer lies in the fact that it is not associated with any deity in the form of its vehicle, as compared to the bull of Shiva or eagle of Vishnu. Nonetheless, India being a primarily agricultural economy, this animal is much venerated, and ascribed wish-fulfilling attributes. Indeed the cow is the national animal of Nepal, the world's only Hindu kingdom. Krishna is naturally associated with the cow, he having spent his childhood as an ordinary cowherd in Vrindavan, where he enchanted the cowherdeses of Vrindavan with the sweet sound of his flute.

Testimonials
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
