Krishna tattoos

Krishna tattoos Krishna Hindu Tattoos - Krishna is one of the most universally beloved deities in Hinduism, not least because his teachings clarify confusion created by various interpretations of Hindu scriptures. As the last avatar (manifestation) of Lord Vishnu, Krishna's word is accepted as final. Some sects hold him up as the Supreme Being.

Appearing in Indian sacred texts dating back more than 5,000 years, Krishna shows up in many different aspects and guises, all of them good, beautiful, or wise. In Sanskrit, 'Krishna' means "dark blue" and "all attractive one". Ancient artworks depict Krishna with blue skin, wearing a loincloth, his head crowned with peacock feathers.

Over the centuries, the devotion to Krishna has inspired fabulous paintings and carvings of the god in all his manifestations.

Krishna's favourite gopi was Radha, his consort or partner, who comes to be revered as a goddess in her own right. His love for Radha is celebrated in Sanskrit and Bengali love poetry. This is Krishna as symbol of love.

Myth and legend recount many heroic acts that demonstrate Krishna's bond with the common man, the workers and the poor. In one story, he tamed the serpent that poisoned the river that had killed many cowherds. Here he is again as an aspect of Vishnu, the preserver and protector. One of Lord Krishna's most famous appearances is as the one who gave to the world the sacred text, Bhagavad-gita.

Krishna tattoosAs the beloved friend of the warrior god Arjuna, Krishna appears as the epitome of wisdom and truth. Krishna convinces Arjuna that the war he is about to fight is a just one. The advice, contained in the Bhagavad-gita, has troubled many who live by codes of non-violence. Krishna's words lay down the guidelines for right living and how to uphold them in times of moral crisis. They speak not only of the splendours but also the horrors of 'True Reality', and the way to transcend personal dilemmas when confronted with the corruption of the human spirit. In this way, balance ...
