krishna

krishna is the deity of love. krishna means �he who steals the minds of others and hearts of all and who is the source of all pleasure.�

child krishna would often play pranks with the elderly gopis (cowherd women), who would be completely vulnerable to his affectionate gestures.

the most familiar image of krishna is the butter thief.

as youth he would go on outings with his gopis and they would carry horns, sticks and earthen pots filled with their afternoon meals.

one of the distinctive features of krishna�s divine persona is his flute, for the flute was enabled to constantly drink the nectar flowing from his lips.

krishna was known to be a great dancer and his dance with radha ,his consort and gopis was called the rasa lila or the dance of love. the rasa mandala is a divine symbol for harmony.
