Krishna's feather

jkmrao's picture

In lIlASuka's SrIkRshNa karNAmRtam, there is a SlOka (sragviNi metre)
which runs like this:

aMganA maMganA maMtarE mAdhavO
mAdhavaM mAdhavaM cAMtarE nAMganA
ittha mAkalpitE maMDalE madhyagaH
saMjagau vENunA dEvakInaMdanaH

He stands between two dancing damsels
and there is a woman between two identities of His
At the centre of the circle constructed thus
dEvakI's son plays the flute,
O, what a divine melody!

This is the first poem in rAsakrIDAshTakam.

I cannot draw peacocks like many of you.
I thought a feather will do to represent Him.

Regards! - mOhana

Rangoli: Krishna's feather

I see sparkling cystals! Peacock-feather fan were always precious, too good to use!
The center design looks like a ring studded with precious stones.
You say you can't draw peacocks, buy this image of yours speaks volumes! Smile

Lakshmi, you've mentioned that yesterday you'd uploaded a peacock rangoli in the site. I see 2 of your rangolis in the queue (rangoli carpet and navadhaniya Ganesha), but I don't see a peacock rangoli. Not yet atleast! Smile
Looks like someone is living and dreaming rangolis Smile

mOhanaji, I could see Krishna dancing in the centre and all Gopikaa's going round and round dancing in the form of your designs.
