Kunj Kirtan Giclee
We’re happy to present, for the first time, Syamarani dasi’s latest, and final, painting (11 years in the making)
As revealed by Srila Raghunatha dasa Gosvami in his book Vilapa-Kusumanjali (Verse 3)
This painting was requested of Syamarani by Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja in the Philippines, in 2009, along with the verse:
Sri Krsna’s forehead is decorated with musk tilaka, the Kaustubha jewel rests upon His broad chest, and an exquisite pearl hangs from the tip of His nose. The flute gracefully rests in His lotus hands, and bracelets adorn His wrists. His entire form is anointed with candana, and a necklace of pearls graces His attractive neck. All glories to the crest-jewel of the gopas, who is surrounded by all the young vraja-gopis.
In the painting, Sri Radha has organized a festival, along with Her gopi friends, for the pleasure of Krsna. The festival includes singling, dancing, playing musical instruments, and many secrets. Some of the secrets were told by Syamarani in a presentation of the painting on October 24, 2020, at the Houston Radha-Govinda temple.
