Pattachitra - Kandarpa, Krishna, Gopikas and Life Story

Description of product

This beautiful black and white pattachitra has Krishna and Radha - the lord's most ardent devotee - on an elephant - Kandarpa. This Pattachitra has Krishna Rasa leela on both sides of Kandarpa and complemented by the full story of Krishna on the border. When Krishna asks Gopikas what they could do to show their devotion and love to him, they turn themselves into Kandarpa the elephant. It shows how Gopikas surrendered themselves fully into the Lord thereby showing the true meaning of Bhakti (devotion). On both sides of Kandarpa, Radha and Krishna Rasa Leela is shown; the love between Radha and Krishna is considered to be of the purest form that transcends the physical sheath. the glorious life of Lord Krishna, which, right from the time of his birth, was truly eventful Vasudeva taking the new born across the Yamuna, under the protection of a serpent, is awe inspiring. Young Krishna killing - and liberating these souls - the demons Putana, Trinavarta, Aghasura and Bakasura is just but a small facet of his legend; protecting the residents of Gokul from a severe storm by uprooting the Govardhan Parvata (mountain or conquering Kaliya (Kalinga) serpent and making Yamuna safe; the naughty side of Krishna where he is the 'MakhanChor (butter thief)' or teasing Gopikas; to the Raas Leela with Radha and Gopikas which teaches us about true Bhakti there is enough to learn from his life. The Pattachitra also depicts Dashavatars, which as per Hindu religion are the ten incarnations of Lord Vishnu - the sustainer - who descends onto Earth to save the human race.
