Mathura Meets Vrindavan
Mathura Meets Vrindavan
(Rated 5.0)
Description
From the Jacket:

The ecstatic love for Krishna possessed by the residents of Vrindavan far excels that found in any other place. When Krishna suddenly departed for Mathura He plunged the vrajavasis into an ocean of sorrow. What was Krishna's purpose in leaving? What happened when His messenger Uddhava arrived in Vraja with a message of love? And, most of all, how is it that Krishna never leaves Vrindavan?

Mathura Meets Vrindavan attempts to recreate something of the mood of reading an ancient palm leaf manuscript by illustrating the pages in the traditional Orissan style of art known as pata-citra. Sri Srimad Gour Govind Swami liked pata-citra art, and as a boy he grew up reading from palm leaf books. To illustrate his lectures included in this volume, the editors have commissioned more than one hundred original pata-citra painting.

Radha could not understand that the real Krishna was there. Thinking it was a deity, and praising the skill of Viswakarma, She said, "He has made such a lifelike deity. And the deity is speaking with such a sweet voice." At the same time Radha is feeling pangs of separation from Krishna. Although She was in the presence of Her beloved, still separation was there. This is known as prema-vaicittya in Vrajbhumi.

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.
