Goddess of learning - Devi Sarasvati | Drawing





O Devi Saraswati, O goddess of learning, you have guided Lord Brahma to meditate on Krishna. 

I pray to you to also help me focus my mind on Krishna.



uvāca puratas tasmai
tasya divyā sarasvatī
kāma-kṛṣṇāya govinda
he gopī-jana ity api
vallabhāya priyā vahner
mantram te dāsyati priyam

Then the goddess of learning Sarasvatī, the divine consort of the Supreme Lord, said thus to Brahmā who saw nothing but gloom in all directions, "O Brahmā, this mantra, viz., klīṁ kṛṣṇāya govindāya gopī-jana-vallabhāya svāhā, will assuredly fulfill your heart's desire."
[Brahma Samhita 5.24]

rādhā-kṛṣṇa eka ātmā, dui deha dhari’

Rādhā and Kṛṣṇa are one and the same, but They have assumed two bodies. Thus They enjoy each other, tasting the mellows of love.

janma karma ca me divyam 
evaṁ yo vetti tattvataḥ 
tyaktvā dehaṁ punar janma

One who knows the transcendental nature of My appearance and activities does not, upon leaving the body, take his birth again in this material world, but attains My eternal abode, O Arjuna.

Matsya Avatar | Drawing




pralaya-payodhi-jale dhritavan asi vedam
vihita-vahitra-caritram akhedam
kesava dhrita-mina-sarira jaya jagadisa hare


0 Kesava! O Lord of the universe! O Lord Hari, who have assumed the form of a fish! All glories to You!
You easily acted as a boat in the form of a giant fish just to give protection to the Vedas, which had
become immersed in the turbulent sea of devastation.

Who holds a flute in His left hand, who wears a peacock feather on His head and a fine yellow silken cloth around His hips, who from the corners of His eyes bestows loving sidelong glances upon His companions, and who is forever known as the one who performs wondrous pastimes in the divine abode of Sri Vrindavana — may that Sri Jagannatha-deva be the object of my vision.

सर्वोपनिषदो गावो दोग्धा गोपालनंदनः ।
पार्थो वत्सः सुधीर्भोक्तादुग्धं गीतामृतः महत् ॥.

This Gitopanisad, Bhagavad-gita, the essence of all the Upanishads, is just like a cow, and Lord Krishna, who is famous as a cowherd boy, is milking this cow.  Arjuna is just like a calf and learned scholars and pure devotees are to drink the nectarean milk of Bhagavad-gita

As all surrender unto Me, I reward them accordingly. Everyone follows My path in all respects, O son of Pritha.
Bhagavad Gita 4.11

Thus Krishna appears as death for the atheist and as the loving protector for His devotee. Like He appeared as Narasingha, a protector for Prahalad Maharaj and death for Hiranakashipu.
