Radha Lamenting With The Gopis
Oil on canvas
40" x 60"
After a long search in the forest, the gopis found Radha lamenting alone. Krishna had abandoned her during the rasa dance. While leaving the dense forest, the gopis absorbed their minds in thoughts of Krishna. The gopis came to the bank of the Yamuna. Walking along, they arrived at an auspicious strand of dazzling white sand, finer and softer than camphor dust. They sat down together and sang about Krishna for some time. The sweetness of their song, the essence of love in separation, could melt a heart of stone and attract the hearts of the mountains, trees and creepers. (Radha is a goddess popular in the Vaishnavism tradition. She is a milkmaid (gopi), the lover and the most represented companion of the Krishna).
