Product Description

This story is from Bhagavatam about Rasa leela - a dance Krishna performed with Radha and other gopikas.

Gopikas were always filled with prema and bhakti as their expression of devotion to the Lord and considered Him as their companion and the most precious treasure. Sage Narada considered the devotion of gopikas as Supreme Devotion to the Lord.

Story of the Painting

Rasa means 'aesthetics','nectar', 'emotion' or 'sweet taste' and leela means 'act', 'play' or 'dance', which translates to 'a play of sweet love'. Rasa leela  is a story about Krishna dancing with Radha and other gopikas. 

The gopikas or the cowherd maidens of Gokulam were saturated with the sweetness of Divine Love and did not seek liberation or higher knowledge. The ecstasy and the Supreme bliss they derived from merely seeking Krishna, they did not get from any other source. Unmindful of the world, upon hearing the sound of Krishna's flute, they sneak away from their households and families to the forest to dance with their Lord which was like a plunge in the Ocean of Bliss.

Krishna simultaneously danced with each one of the Gopikas as a proof of His all-pervasive presence in the universe. 

The Bhagavatam itself explicitly says that Krishna left Brindavan when he was just 11 years old. But, it is ignored, because the minds of the people want to see sensuality in Rasa leela and are vitiated by the Attachment to sense objects.

  • This painting or chitra has been painted on a pure Tussar Silk cloth, which lends durability and gives longevity to the painting.

Traditional Art of Orissa

Pattachitra - a Sanskrit word, for the style of Hand Painting that originated in Orissa in 12 century B.C.,  i.e. more than 3000 years ago. It started when artists of Orissa, or Oriya Painters, started making Chitra (i.e. painting) on a Patta (i.e. palm leaf or canvas) as religious offering to temples. These paintings mostly show religious stories, deities and daily life events of people from that period using rich colorful application & creative motifs and designs. From canvas to colours, everything in Pattachitra paintings is prepared by hands of craftsman.
