Description

The images herein reveal the hidden, inconceivable spiritual world – beckoning readers on an enchanting journey of discovery. Drawing extensively from the Vedic literary heritage of ancient India, the devotional artwork in “Bhakti Art Illuminations” is comprised of mystical, historical, and allegorical subjects. Gently initiating a revolution in consciousness, these include compelling, easy-to-understand depictions of complex philosophical themes, as well as inspirational life histories of saints and yogis, and incarnations and associates of Krsna, throughout the many cycles of ages.

Other themes portray the grandeur and breath-taking acts of heroism and valor enacted by the kings and queens and heroes and heroines who walked onto the stage in the remote recesses of pre-history. Still other themes portray Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, who made His advent 500 years ago, along with His eternal personal associates. All themes exemplify and embody the highest of ideals that are increasingly yearned for in this modern age.

Inside you’ll find – conversations with the artist’s self-realized spiritual masters, along with some of their letter exchanges – an inter-view with the artist as well as descriptions and examples of her creative process – colorful charts – samples of associate and contemporary bhakti artists, along with some of their collaborative works – and more.
