It is a dynamic pose, full of activity and the sound of KRISHNA's flute.
One of the most widely revered and most popular of all Indian divinities, is KRISHNA worshipped as the eighth incarnation (avatar) of Vishnu. KRISHNA became the focus of a large number of devotional cults, which over the centuries have produced a wealth of religious poetry, music, painting and sculpture.
The child Krishna was adored for his mischievous pranks; he also performed many miracles and slew demons. As a youth, the cowherd KRISHNA became renown as a lover, the sound of his flute prompting gopis (wives and daughters of the cowherders) to leave their homes to dance ecstatically with him in the forests. His favorite among them was the beautiful Radha. Krishna's youthful dalliances with the gopis are interpreted as symbolic of the loving interplay between God and the human soul. KRISHNA affirms life in his pranks, music and lovemaking.
The most renowned story surrounding KRISHNA is the Bhagavad Gita which is considered one of the most important Hindu texts. The Gita is the conversation between KRISHNA and Arjuna. KRISHNA is explaining to Arjuna that it is Arjuna's moral obligation to fight in a war that will put him against some members of his family. KRISHNA like Vishnu is an upholder of the moral order of the universe.
