Krishna's Leela - Divine Play
The Pata painting depicts Lord Krishna overpowering the Kaliya, the serpent. There was a great lake near the river Yamuna. Here resided the black and venomous serpent Kaliya. Due to his poisonous vapors, the surrounding area was so contaminated that no living being would dare venture near the place. One day Krishnas fellow cowherds went near the lake and after drinking water fell sick. Krishna after learning this said: I shall vanquish this king of serpents and release the inhabitants of the country from their continual dread. Following a fierce battle, Krishna overpowered the serpents and following the prayers by the wives of the Kaliya, he pardoned Kaliya on the condition that Kaliya would leave the place forever. The manner in which Krishna subdues Kaliya has a fascinating quality about it. The dance to victory, the effortless rhythm of the Almighty's pace of creation and destruction, the ease, the grace, the sheer play in the manifestations of the Lord's will, to which wind and water provide enchanted accompaniment, are beautifully brought out in the narrative. Indeed, this is the first inkling in textual material of Krishna as natwar (the dancer).
