Krishna, one of the most beloved characters of the Hindu pantheon, has been portrayed in many lights: a god-child, a prankster, a model lover, a divine hero, an exemplary ruler, and the Supreme Being. In "The Complete Life of Krishna," Vanamali, a leading Krishna expert from a long line of prominent Krishna devotees, provides the first book in English or Sanskrit to cover the complete range of the avatar s life.
Drawing from the Bhagavad Purana, the Bhagavad Gita, the Mahabharata, and India s sacred oral tradition, Vanamali shares stories from Krishna s birth in a dungeon and early days as a merry trickster in Vrindavana, through his time as divine ruler at Dwaraka, to his final powerful acts as the hero Arjuna s charioteer and guru in the Kurukshetra war. She explains how Krishna became a mahayogi, the greatest of all yogis, and attained complete mastery over himself and nature. By integrating the hero-child with the mahayogi, the playful lover with the divine ruler, Vanamali shows how the stories of Krishna s life are expressed with such simplicity and humor that they enable anyone--man, woman, or child--to see the wisdom of his teachings.
This complete biography of the man who was also a god provides a valuable meditative tool allowing Krishna s lessons to illuminate from within."
